Air CurtainsSpring is about to be in full bloom and your business is probably ready to start cracking open the windows and propping the doors open.

Unfortunately, with alongside spring weather, is a brand new batch of flies, mosquitoes, and other pests. These pests are all aching to get inside your cozy office, with its freshly stocked break room. If you happen to be a restaurant owner, they don’t even need to make a beeline for your break room. Pretty much anywhere will do.

Luckily there exists a harmless, yet effective way to reduce or eliminate the amount of flying pests that get inside your business.

So in honor of spring, we’d like to shine the spotlight on Air Curtains and Fly Fans. These specialty items produce an invisible barrier of air as a walk-through or overhead door is open. This helps to not only keep out flying insects but elements as well such as falling leaves.

They also can help conserve energy by keeping warm or cool air in

Typically, air curtains and fly fans are used for restaurants, food processing, and shipping/receiving docks. They are usually mounted above the door with a manual switch available to operate.

They work by blowing air constantly down from their location. A typical fan would not be a recommended substitute as they don’t provide the angle, velocity, or coverage.

At Vortex we have both USDA and city code health department units available.
