Overdoor Heater: Barclays Birmingham

Why Barclays main contractor banks on Envirotec

The Challenge:
When the Barclays’ Moseley branch was undergoing refurbishment, the main contractor – one of our long standing clients – briefed us to provide an air curtain for a three metre-length space over the entrance. The challenge was that the doorway did not necessitate the level of output that a three metre-length curtain would deliver.

Fresh thinking:
Conventional wisdom would suggest installing an air curtain the entire width of the doorway, but there are times when less is more. Our engineering team custom made a two metre-length air curtain with false ends – installed using a special bracketing system – to create the visual effect of a three metre-long curtain that delivered exactly the right output at much improved value for money.

Benefit to client:
Our solution saved Barclays almost £2,000 on the unit costs with the additional benefit of reduced bills in the future from a more energy efficient solution.
