Cold storage air curtains
An air curtain plus cold storage is an effective combination in places that are transport-heavy. Air In Motion, headquartered in Merselo, Limburg, develops solutions for this type of logistic passageways.
Costly damage to doors, regular replacement of parts such as rubber door strips and frequent waiting for the door to open are now a thing of the past. Kris van de Rijt, director of Air In Motion, has seen a strong increase in the sales of his maintenance-free cold storage air curtains over the last few years “Customers just want a solution they don’t have to worry about, even after the warranty has expired,” says Van de Rijt. His company develops the innovative cold storage air curtains for use in nearly every type of industry, from a cold store to a freezer room and from an inside door to even an extremely large outside door.

Applying the cold storage air curtains
Using cold storage air curtains is the easy way of reducing the maintenance frequency of a cold storage door. For a company, there is a big difference between opening a door 300/400 times a day and opening it only once per day with respect to maintenance costs and logistic flow. Waiting for doors to open becomes a thing of the past. Apart from saving on the maintenance costs of existing doors, warm and moist air is also prevented from entering the cold store.
The concept developed by Van de Rijt works like an impenetrable barrier that blocks heat diffusion.
Cold storage air curtains are so effective that the cold storage door can be kept open for hours without issue while the temperature remains stable. The energy losses are so marginal that an investment in an AFIM Air Door can pay itself back within 1 to 2 years.
