Restaurant Air Curtains
Air curtains for restaurants and the food service industry in general are a necessity on several fronts. By using restaurant air curtains, the restaurant can separate the dining area, back-of-the-house kitchen area, and drive-thru.
The dining area is a high-traffic area. The door is continually opening, letting out conditioned air while letting the outside air in. While the door is open, unwanted pests can enter the restaurant. This decreases the chances of customers having a positive experience.
A restaurant air door also has the added benefit of keeping the delicious smells from escaping the dining room.
Fly and insect control needs to be very tight in restaurant kitchens and food service areas. An air door keeps flies and insects from getting into the building. Keeping food pathogens and contaminants away from food is imperative as well.
