Panasonic high efficiency Air Curtain with DX Coil, connected to the PACi or VRF Systems

The Panasonic range of air curtains is designed for smooth operation and efficient performance. Air curtains produce a continuous stream of air blown from the top to the bottom of an open doorway and create a barrier that people and products can flow across, but air can’t. Designed to improve energy efficiency, minimise heat loss from a building, and to allow retailers to keep doors open to encourage customers, our Air Curtains are suitable for connection to both PACi and VRF Systems.
  • Super-efficient with new EC fan motor (40% lower running costs compared to a standard AC fan motor)
  • Easy Cleaning and Servicing
  • Can be connected to either Panasonic PACi or VRF systems
  • Built-in drain for cooling operation
  • Standard and Jet Flow air curtains can be controlled via Panasonic’s range of remote internet controls
The new standard and jet-flow models are ideal for connection to a PACi or ECOi system. With simple ‘plug and play’ installation, both are fitted with an EC fan motor for a smooth operation and efficient performance. This new fan guarantees 40% lower running cost than with a standard AC fan motor. With air curtains often running for 12 hours a day as a minimum, this can lead to considerable savings.
80% more efficient*
Highly efficient heating effect
The combined air stream, which has a desirable low air current induction factor (mixing factor), can carry the selected initial temperature effect over long distances, and will reach the floor area while still at room temperature. This is necessary to avoid cooling down the interior spaces.
Available in different lengths to suit requirements between 1 and 2,5m, both air curtains have outlet grilles that can be adjusted to five different positions. The jet flow model can be installed up to a height of 3,5m with the standard model up to 3,0m. The outlet grilles can be easily adjusted into five positions to suit different installations requirements and the air filter can be accessed without the need for specialist tools.

* With the U-100PE1E5 on the PAW-20PAIRC-MS. Calculation method: Taking as consideration  SCOP of the Panasonic combination of 6,0. If 100 is the energy needed for a air curtain, Panasonic Air curtain will need 1/(1-6)*100=20.
Internet Control
An app added to your tablet or smartphone or via the Internet allows you to control and manage the system remotely. There is also the option to integrate into existing BMS systems by using other Panasonic interfaces.
Intelligent Operation
Our air curtains combine air flow and heating / cooling technology to ensure optimum comfort and energy efficiency whilst also creating an effective barrier between indoor and outdoor environments. Design and installation is key to achieving the correct height / temperature settings to achieve optimum performance. Our air curtains are designed to answer the demands of the retail, commercial and industrial markets.
How does it work?
Stale air from the room is taken in and ejected near the door. This creates a ‘roll of air’ that shields the door area, mixing with the colder incoming air. It then turns away from the door, back into the room and toward the intake screen, where it is partly drawn in again. This flow of air helps to create a barrier for heat loss yet at the same time refreshes room air.

Optimised air flow velocity
1. Energy losses, no air curtain installed
2. Too low velocity air curtain – Air Curtain not efficient
3. Optimum results with the Tekadoor Air Curtain connected to Panasonic PACi
4. Too high velocity air curtain – considerable turbulence, energy lost to the outside, Air Curtain not efficient
5. Ideal air flow: 1,5-2 m/s at 15cm from the floor
