Al-Watania Poultry is the largest facility in the Middle East, and one of the giant projects in the world in the field of poultry production and foodstuffs made from it. The company’s vision is to support food and provide the best quality food in the Arab world with more than 50 branches, in addition to having a basic store for the distribution of products, which is a large warehouse operating around the clock consisting of several departments: such as production rooms and workplaces for employees, as well as cold and freezing rooms.

Watania Poultry challenges Before Installing Air Curtains

 The warehouse of Al-Watania Poultry Company with its large size, and its huge production line faced many challenges before installing the air curtains such as:

1. The warehouse is located in an area with a difficult environment that causes insects, dust and dirt to enter it.
2. The temperatures inside the store are constantly dropping due to the entry of hot air from the outside into the interior.
3. Huge amounts of electricity are consumed to operate high-voltage refrigeration equipment to cool the internal environment of the store.
4. The moist air enters into the cold rooms, which turns them into ice that harms the products kept inside them.

The most affected areas in Al-Watania Poultry

1. Staff entrance.
2. Cold rooms.
3. Corridors connecting the cooling rooms.

Inspection stage to choose the right air curtains

We sent a specialized team from Stavoklima to examine the environment of the place and the size of the warehouse, then we suggested to the client the necessity of installing air curtains to maintain the factory environment within the appropriate quality standards, and then we started working on the project in three phases:
The first stage: We suggested installing air curtains on the entrance door to prevent hot air from entering from the outside.
The second phase: We chose suitable air curtains for the passages between the cold rooms, as they have large entrances and affect the cold rooms.
third level: Putting air curtains on the doors of cold rooms, to prevent the entry of moisture air into the rooms and to maintain a temperature below zero inside. ​
