Saint Isaac’s Cathedral in Saint Petersburg, one of the largest sacred domes in the world, provides space for over 10,000 visitors. Some three million people visit the monument each year, a constant coming and going. Following a long approval procedure, two air curtain systems from Teddington have been screening the entrance and exit areas from draughts and lost energy since the winter of 2015/2016.
Operating high-end retail stores demands a consistent concept that takes a variety of aspects into consideration. The money spent on achieving a good indoor atmosphere is an important economic factor here. Air curtain systems from Teddington reduce energy costs by up to 80 percent compared to unprotected doors. They also create a pleasant, draught-free atmosphere. After all, 60 percent of purchase decisions are made directly in the shop, while staff also welcome a workplace which is at a comfortable temperature.
Cruise ships provide space for around 4000 passengers, offering the utmost comfort for enjoyable voyages. An air conditioning system that circulates several million cubic metres an hour guarantees a constant indoor atmosphere despite very diverse outdoor temperatures. One problem here lies in the numerous doors connecting the outside area to the inside of the ship. Every time these open there is an exchange between the air masses inside and outside. The expensively conditioned air inside escapes, while humid, sultry tropical air flows in. The Papenburger Meyer shipyard solved the problem by building a new ship with air curtain systems from Teddington.
While the famous Grand Canyon natural monument has been work in progress for 65 million years, the “Grand Canyon” in Saint Petersburg was erected in a short time and opened in 2006. We are talking here about one of the biggest shopping malls in the Russian Federation. The open design inside provides generous space for visitors, but was also characterised by draughts and cold temperatures during the Russian winter.
