High energy bills and uneven temperatures? Your problem might be stratification. Stratification is the tendency for hot air to rise towards the ceiling in large buildings with tall ceilings, and grocery stores often face this problem due to the variety of temperatures present in the store. From the cold cases to the deli, with the front doors opening and closing for every new customer, maintaining a consistent temperature is tough. Without a destratification system, a badly stratified grocery store can be an awfully unpleasant place to work or shop. Fogging on exterior glass of case doors? Slip hazards at entrances? Destratification can help here, too!
Airius helps solve issues with stratified air with a line of high-impact destratification fans. Our sales team is ready to help you understand the movement of air in your store and recommend a selection of fans that suit your specific needs. Not only will an Airius fan make your store more comfortable for your employees and patrons by equalizing the temperature, it can significantly reduce HVAC bills by reducing the cooling load during the summer and recirculating warm air to the floor during winter.
Airius owns a utility patent on two key components of the Air Pear, the stator and venturi nozzle. This patent allow us to build a product that, unlike a ceiling fan, provides a narrow column of air that can be directed. This is a crucial component of grocery store destratification, as these components are built so that they will not interfere with open cold cases.
Airius fans can be installed in both dropped ceilings or an exposed structure.
