Microshield Air Barrier
90% Less Energy than an Air Curtain

The Microshield air barrier creates a “virtual door” to keep cold air out and warm air in (or visa-versa). Designed for commercial premises with frequently open doorways the air barrier creates up to a 90% seal to stop the transfer of temperature, humidity, dust, odours and insects. With just a draught of unheated air creating the barrier, vehicles and pedestrians can pass without obstruction.

The Microshield's low energy, compact design makes it ideal for retail, warehousing, food production/storage, public buildings, schools, nurseries or the motor trade.

Units are available in 915mm, 1220mm, and 1830mm widths – multiple units can be positioned in-line for larger openings up to 2.1m high.

Microshield Air Barrier
90% Less Energy than an Air Curtain

What is an air barrier?

The Enershield air barrier creates a “virtual door” by re-circulating ambient air and forcing it across an opening to create up to a 90% seal. The seal separates the atmospheres on either side and stops the transfer of temperature, humidity, dust, odours and insects. With just a draught of air creating the barrier, vehicles and pedestrians can pass without obstruction.

Air Barrier v. Air Curtain?

Air barriers should not be confused with a heated warm air curtain, whose primary design objective is to provide warmth at an open doorway. Without a proper seal over an open door, your expensively heated or air-conditioned air, along with the warm blast from a typical heated air curtain is immediately conveyed to the outside. A typical 5kw air curtain, operating 8 hours per day, 5 days per week will consume in excess of £1,000 of electricity per annum. Under the same conditions an Enershield unit will consume £60 of electricity per annum.

The Benefits

  • Save energy: Escalating energy costs mean rising fuel bills. If your business operates a welcoming “open door” policy to attract passing trade then your heating costs will be a major expense.
  • Enhanced comfort for employees and customers. Keeps the outside air out and the inside air in, maintaining the warmth of your heating in winter and the coolness of your air-conditioning in the summer.
  • Atmospheric separation. In other words: airborne problems like dust, insects, smoke, traffic fumes and odours are all prevented from passing through the Enershield.
  • Reduced demand on your heating and air-conditioning systems reduces servicing costs and increases their life expectancy.
  • With reduced energy consumption, typical installations provide a payback of less than 2 years.
  • Stylish, aesthetic and unobtrusive design.
  • Improved safety and accessibility with unobstructed doorways and unrestricted access.

Why Enershield?

SAVE ENERGY. Selection of the right air barrier is as crucial as the decision to install the technology in the first place.

The Enershield is UK manufactured to a Canadian design and it is built to perform in the toughest climates, hot or cold. Build quality and performance guarantees are industry leading.

Enershield air barrier technology is designed to create a seal over an opening and prevent the transfer of air between inside and out.

For every unit of energy that your Enershield consumes, it will save approximately 15 units of energy.
