What is an air curtain in the restaurant and foodservice industry?
Regulations, exacting customers and foodborne illness are ongoing concerns for every foodservice operator just as much as the operating costs of high utility bills. Mars helps take down the heat for even the most demanding and largest foodservice brands, with solutions that:
Creating more sustainable foodservice operations reduce operational costs while creating a more green and well building. Air curtains at the entryways and openings create a protective shield so that exterior, untreated air does not enter and cause the need for additional heating or cooling to treat the air. Reducing the operation of the HVAC system can reduce the utility spend and lessen the cost to maintain the HVAC system.
The air curtain thermal air barrier also halts incoming dust, debris, vehicle emissions and flying insects. The penetration of these contaminants are known pathogens that are damaging to food and create conditions that reduce productivity.
Across every industry and facility type (no matter the size), Mars can develop a custom plan for whole-facility sanitation and ensure significant energy savings with a protective shield of air across every opening - including internal separation between cold storage units and protecting “clean rooms” with higher sterility & hygiene needs.
Eliminate flying insects, fumes, and debris that put food prep areas at risk. Also aids in comfort of the employee working the drive up window.
Whether you need to separate areas by temperature zones or ensure high levels of cleanliness in food prep areas, Mars will protect goods & drive energy savings.
Welcome your customers…not flying insects or exterior air that interferes with costly climatized air.
Expand the indoor dining experience to the great outdoors. Eliminate flying insects and hot air from entering the air conditioned space.
Large high traffic openings can be controlled to prevent building temperature loss, stop wind gusts and keep workers comfortably productive and moving freely.
Eliminate condensation, pooling water, frost, slippery floors, compressors working overtime, injuries and food spoilage with a Mars cold storage solution.
Eliminate odor migration into the restaurant space. Enhanced sanitation and odor control can be achieved by adding the Mars UVC® accessory module to the LPV2 or STD2 series.
