In 1956, Erling Berner brought European technology to the United States and formed Berner Industries, the foundation of today's Berner International Corporation, the first manufacturer of air curtains (also known as air doors) in the U.S.A.
Headquartered in New Castle, Pennsylvania, Berner International combines state of the art equipment with highly skilled workers to produce the most efficient, cost effective, reliable air curtains on the market.
Berner’s strong commitment to listening to their customers and solving their problems has established Berner International as the leader in the air curtain market. In the late 1970s, Berner took the lead in approaching the other air curtain / air door manufacturers to work with A.M.C.A. (Air Movement Control Association) to successfully develop a certified method of rating air curtain performance. Product performance is critical, and at Berner, they believe their customers deserve the best assurance that Berner products perform as stated.
In business for over 50 years, Berner has a reputation for customer service, innovation, quality and performance, and is proud to be a leader in systems that save energy and create healthy, comfortable environments.
Berner air curtains effectively prevent heating or air conditioning from escaping through open doors, providing sizeable energy savings and personal comfort, along with insect control, when applied in commercial, industrial and food service settings.
They catalog over 406 different configurations of air curtains and have models designed for customer and service entryways that are perfect for grocery stores, offices, retail, convenience stores, and warehouses, just to name a few. From a 3’ drive-thru window to a 30’ dock door, Berner air curtains are the answer.
