How Enershield Air Barriers can support your industrial heating

Large door in warehouse

Working in facilities with large doorway openings, you might think keeping the internal temperature consistent is impossible. Even with air conditioning units working constantly, the energy spent keeping your workers at a comfortable temperature is wasted once that door opens. Your facility might already have its own solution: cranking the heaters up in Winter or using cooling units in Summer? The truth is – there is a much better solution. It is more economical than heavy usage of heaters or air conditioning units and still means that your workers can stay in a more comfortable environment.

You might think heating large areas such as warehouses or hangars to be a waste of energy, especially as most of the heat will get trapped in the upper part of the building. Enershield Air Barriers can aid in the destratification of your internal environments by forcing the heat back down to the occupancy level. 

This stabilisation of your environments means your industrial heating systems can operate at a much higher level of efficiency thanks to the mitigations of any fluctuation through external factors.  To read more about the potential ROI an Enershield Air Barrier can present click here.

The benefits of managing your internal environment go beyond just enhancing employee well-being. Effective control of heating or air conditioning is essential not only to prevent dampness or damage but also to maintain optimal operational conditions. In sectors such as retail, significant investment; often thousands of pounds, is directed towards heating units to sustain the appropriate temperature. Consider also the financial impact associated with the frequent opening of doors, necessary for the movement of vehicles, products, or personnel. This is where Enershield Air Barriers prove invaluable. They ensure the maintenance of internal temperatures efficiently, while facilitating uninterrupted operations.
