JS Air Curtains is celebrating two decades of preventing doorway draughts across the UK.
Founded in 1999 as a sister company to JS Humidifiers, the West Sussex-based business is still located at its original head office in Rustington, but has grown from having around 90 units in its catalogue to offering over 450 air curtains.
Mike Verney, area sales manager and a founding member of the JS Air Curtains team, said: “Over the last 20 years we’ve seen a dramatic shift in the marketplace from cheap over-door heaters to much more effective air barrier solutions. Furthermore, we’ve worked continuously with designers and architects and have seen a definite trend of consultants wanting more than just plain box shaped units above doorways. Air curtains now, more often than not, have very architectural designs, customisable options and can offer more than just an air barrier, with the ability to carry signage, graphics, sensors and other features.”
Major milestones include being the founding organisation of the Air Curtains Group at the Federation of Environmental Trade Associations (FETA), helping design solutions for some of the UK’s most prestigious buildings, like the Royal Albert Hall and the V&A Museum, and being acquired by the Condair Group in 2011.
