The first North American patent for an Air Curtain was issued in 1904 to
Theophilus Van Kemmel. However, the first recorded installation was not made until some 12
Air Curtains then became increasingly popular in Europe throughout the
late 1940's and 1950's.
In 1956 Miniveil brought the most advanced European Air Curtain
technology to North America and formed Miniveil Ltd.
The first Miniveil Air Curtains were sold in Canada in 1958 for use on
cold storage doorways.
Since then Miniveil has developed and designed Air Curtain systems for
every conceivable need.
Our factory trained representatives are available throughout North
America to provide assistance in selecting the most effective Miniveil Air Curtain for
each unique application.
