INSECT CONTROL AIR CURTAINS
Flying insect infiltration into controlled environments is a persistent problem faced by restaurants across the globe.
They present so many potential health hazards that keeping them out is an absolute requirement.
For thorough and complete pest-control, you need a thorough and complete solution.
Enter the flying insect control air curtain from airdoordepot.com.
Most flying insect control solutions are reactive in nature, i.e. complete elimination AFTER they have penetrated your target environment.
Many reactive solutions include devices such as insect light traps and electrocution equipment as well as glue-boards, those methods also require subsequent clean-up and potentially introduce unwanted chemicals into your environment.
Adding a flying insect control Air Curtain introduces a proactive measure in controlling unwanted penetration. Flying insects are stopped from entering that controlled environment by the air curtain.
This two-pronged approach virtually eliminates unwanted insect intrusion completely.
For restaurant operations-especially in food preparation environments, 100% elimination of flying insects can be the difference in the success of the overall food operation. This can be a huge benefit when placed at shipping/receiving doors.
Further, introduction of strategically-placed air curtains at food-service windows as well as drive-through windows allows for elimination of flying insect intrusion while moving food directly to customers.
The most common infiltrator is the house fly. House flies will get a food-service operation shut down due to sanitation violations. Fast. They’re unsightly and carry pathogenic organisms (viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and nematodes), so stopping them before they infiltrate a food-service facility; be it a warehouse or manufacturer or restaurant, is essential to the continued operational health of that facility.
The insect control air curtain blows a high-velocity invisible air-stream in front of an opening. The common housefly has a maximum flying speed of five miles per hour; its wings beat 20 thousand times per minute.
Based on that data, the National Sanitation Foundation (Standard 37) requires that service entry units develop an air stream that is at least three inches thick a minimum air velocity of 1600 ft/min, which is just over 18 MPH.
Amazingly, a 1 to 1.5 HP unit will provide enough of an air barrier to effectively protect an eight foot entrance, which leads to one of the other benefits of an insect control air curtain; energy savings.
The air curtain serves as a thermal barrier, helping to maintain steady and consistent temperatures in the controlled environment better than doors that continue to open and close, such as a service door, front door, or even a drive-through window.
That helps control HVAC costs within the controlled environment by reducing fluctuations in the temperatures caused by exterior temperature influence.
Keep in mind as well that exterior winds will impact the effectiveness of the selected insect control air curtain. Consider again the common house fly. Its maximum flying speed is five mph. However, if it is flying near that speed while riding a 25 mph wind gust, it will likely penetrate the air curtain, not to mention dust, dirt, etc.
