TMI's New Line of Air Curtains

Press release date: Jun 01, 2010


Air Curtains Feature Unique Air Compression Chamber to Provide Uniform Air Flow across Entire Doorway

Pittsburgh, Pa., - TMI, LLC, a leading supplier of innovative PVC strip, film, panel and sheet products, as well as a complete line of warehouse improvement solutions, today introduced its state-of-the-art, environmental management device, the Save-T® Air Curtain. The new Save-T Air Curtain improves workflow and productivity, while helping companies save on energy costs. The Air Curtain also provides better control of workplace environments by creating an aerodynamic barrier that prevents air, insects, dirt, dust and fumes from entering work areas. Conditioned air stays in the building while outside air, flying pests and other unwanted elements are kept at bay.

TMI's new line of air curtains feature a uniquely-designed air compression chamber that makes use of the Coanda effect principle to collect air as it leaves the blowers and compress it into a concentrated stream, which effectively covers the entire door opening. This airstream helps reduce unwanted air infiltration while enabling doorways to be left open so that people, equipment and inventory can pass freely between them.

Save-T Air Curtains typically pay for themselves in a matter of months due to the energy savings they produce.

TMI's Save-T Air Curtains are made of stainless steel that is corrosion-resistant and highly durable. They can be used in a variety of applications including overhead doors, dock doors, customer entrances, high-cycle doors, cooler doors and freezer doors. Depending on the application, Save-T Air Curtains can either be mounted overhead horizontally or recessed into the ceiling. If space is an issue, they can be mounted vertically at the door's side. Save-T Air Curtains are available for doors from 30 inches to 30 feet wide and up to 22 feet high. Additionally, TMI's wall mount brackets can cut installation time by up to 50 percent.

"We are thrilled to be able to offer this new and advanced line of air curtains to our customers," said Dave Rimbey, director of operations at TMI. "At TMI, we are constantly looking for innovative ways to lead our industry and provide true benefit to the end users of our products. These new air curtains will allow us to do just that."

Save-T Air Curtains are also available with optional, internal heating components to accommodate colder environments.
