CAIROX reduces energy consumption with new series of air curtains

Zaventem, 19 September 2017 – International HVAC expert, SIG Air Handling, has extended its CAIROX product range, introducing no fewer than five new air curtains. The ‘Solano Air Curtains’ have been developed to absorb the difference in temperature between outdoors and indoors, thereby saving energy. The air systems are mainly used in sports halls, shops, shopping centres and restaurants.

CAIROX is a product label of SIG Air Handling with systems for air improvement, air movement and air diffusion. The trade name is a contraction of ‘care’, ‘air’ and ‘oxygen’. This also spells out the mission of this international HVAC player: making a healthy indoor climate accessible to everyone.

With the Solano Air Curtains, the company is investing in optimum temperature control and energy saving. The air curtains are installed on exterior doors to keep the heat in and the cold out (and vice versa): a continuous current of air prevents temperature loss and keeps the indoor temperature constant. There is no need to rush to switch on heating systems, and CO2 emissions are minimised.

These air curtains are available in various models for a wide range of applications: with a sleek design, handy installation hooks and remote control or as an industrial version for large, much-visited spaces, such as department stores. The systems can also be concealed from view with a false ceiling.

At the end of August, CAIROX was in the spotlight as a sports sponsor for the Belgian men’s volleyball team, the ‘Red Dragons’, during the European Championship in Poland (fourth place).To lend force to its mission, SIG Air Handling supports sports initiatives and the like-minded organisations EVIA – the European Ventilation Industry Association and EFA – the European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients’ Associations.
