Heat pump air curtain in City hotspot

UK: Madison restaurant at St Paul’s in London is the first venue in the UK to install Toshiba’s new heat-pump-based heating and cooling air curtain.

The restaurant, renowned for its buzzing atmosphere and spectacular city views, wanted to deliver a high-quality indoor environment for customers, while ensuring low energy and servicing costs. 

Installed above the main front door of the restaurant, which is renowned for its spectacular city views, the air curtain provides a high velocity continuous down-draft of air to maintain internal comfort conditions for customers and staff.

It is connected to the restaurant’s Toshiba’s SMMS-e VRF air conditioning system and was installed by Kent-based Chapman’s Refrigeration Ltd.

The colour-coded casing was matched to the customer’s RAL code, ensuring it blends in perfectly with its surroundings.

The air curtain was developed by Fred Shaw & Co Ltd and engineers from Toshiba Air Conditioning UK specifically to meet UK requirements.

BSRIA’s evaluated its thermal efficiency, acoustic and air-flow performance and it has been accepted onto the government-backed Energy Technology List (ETL) for air curtains.
