Air curtains create a controlled stream of air across a door or window opening, providing significant energy savings to building owners and helping to maintain interior building temperatures. In addition, some have optional features that can clean and sanitize the air near the opening. This course examines additional features that some models offer in the form of airborne pathogen and virus control and irradiation to help manage the virus level and the disbursement of untreated air near the opening. This course examines how air curtains can reduce airborne pathogens and viruses and improve the indoor air quality near the opening and the various technologies to eradicate and/or collect pathogens, how and when to operate air curtains operate and properly identify applications to maximize the disinfection of the air near the opening.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Summarize pathogen control air curtain with technology terms, components, basic theory, and operation
  2. Assess the design criteria to properly identify, size, and install pathogen control air curtain units to suit the application, resulting in improved sanitation and air quality
  3. Identify how many and where pathogen control air curtains can be utilized to reduce a space’s pathogen concentration
  4. Determine the proper pathogen control air curtain configurations and controls to maintain and improve indoor air sanitation levels and occupant safety
  5. Identify pathogen control air-cleaning strategies, that employs new and existing technologies to inhibit the spread of airborne pathogens and viruses in indoor space
  6. Recognize safety test standards and how they apply to pathogen control air curtains
