Touches added by the air curtain to the aesthetics of the Ritz-Carlton hotel environment
About The Ritz-Carlton Hotels chain in Saudi Arabia
The luxury hotel chain known as The Ritz-Carlton is one of the most famous hotels around the world, the company has 108 luxury hotels and resorts in 30 countries and territories with 29,158 rooms, in addition to 46 hotels with 8,755 rooms under construction, knowing that the current company was established in 1983, and today we are talking about one of the most beautiful branches in the Middle East, which is the Jeddah branch.
Why did The Ritz-Carlton hotels decide to install an air curtain?
The Jeddah branch is located along the Al-Hamra Corniche overlooking the Red Sea, which exposes the hotel to sea current throughout the day, especially at the main entrance to receive visitors, which has led to some challenges before installing air curtains as follows:
Moist air enters the interior and condenses around the air conditioning vents, which can cause an uncomfortable environment inside.
Heat leakage from outside to inside, which requires wasting double energy from the air conditioners to restore the coolness of the place.
The waterfront air is harsh and noisy and it was important to find a way to mitigate its intensity.
Keeping the entrance door open may allow insects and dust to enter inside.
Therefore, it was important to find a defense mechanism that protects the place from marine influences and air humidity, and here was the role of Stavoklima in intervening and finding appropriate solutions to the challenges facing the Jeddah branch and maintaining its pleasant and clean environment.

Preview stage to choose the right air curtain for the hotel
The Stavoklima team visited the Ritz-Carlton branch in Jeddah several times, and met with the hotel’s engineering team to assess the needs of the place and study the client’s requests, but there were two main challenges facing the Stavoklima team:
The first challenge: the distance between the main door and the ceiling is small; and the space is not enough to install an air curtain.
The second challenge: the hotel has luxurious gypsum designs above the main door that simulate the Roman decoration in the building.
Therefore, it was very difficult to convince the Carlton team of the need to remove the gypsum decorations and replace them with the air curtain, and after many discussions, the Ritz-Carlton team sensed the need to install the air curtain at the main entrance.
Which air curtain did the Stavoklima team choose for the Carlton Hotel Jeddah branch?
The Stavoklima team was keen to choose an air curtain that can confront the harsh marine environment surrounding the hotel, and after examining the details of the place and the dimensions of the door, we chose the Axial concealed air curtain, after making adjustments that suit the privacy of the entrance and its decorations:
We installed the air curtain inside a wooden house that simulates the wood design of the main door.
We have developed a program to operate the curtain with an external controller that makes it easy to control the speeds according to the weather of the place.
