Green is this season's colour for New Look...

New Look, one of the nation’s hottest fashion chains, has taken the lead on sustainability at its new flagship Oxford Circus store on London’s Oxford Street and its popular Marble Arch premises, by installing revolutionary AC Series air curtains from Airbloc.

The energy efficient Airbloc air curtains will slash the energy consumption of the two stores. Situated above the main entrances, they will reduce the demands of air conditioning by preventing heat loss from the building by 80% – whilst ensuring superb comfort for shoppers.

The AC Series air curtains from Airbloc were the perfect solution for New Look’s stores. They create a high velocity air wall, which ensures that external climates do not penetrate into the carefully controlled atmospheres of New Look’s shops, reducing the energy consumption of air conditioning and heating systems.

AC Series air curtains also offer supreme energy efficiency themselves. Featuring a SmartElec energy saving control, they minimise energy usage to optimise their contribution to sustainability.

The significant green benefits of installing AC Series units are matched by their other performance qualities. CE Approved, the versatile and hardwearing system can be installed either vertically or horizontally at doorways and entrances to meet any need.

At New Look’s Oxford Circus store, the main entrance featured overhead High Capacity ACR Series air curtains for additional power. Their outlet was provided by one continuous grille recessed into the ceiling for an unobtrusive, sleek effect in line with the fashion chain’s stylish aspirations.

The stunning new store spans an impressive 26,000 sq ft, over four floors housing the latest New Look summer 2010 fashion in womenswear and menswear. With a towering four floors dedicated to keeping your wardrobes up to date, New Look will be your first stop on the Oxford Street trail.

For the Marble Arch store building, bespoke AC Series units were supplied. A corner entrance, it was specially designed to create an impressive effect for customers. As such, it was essential that the air curtains fitted the design seamlessly. AirBloc provided High Capacity AC Series units coloured in grey and featuring special grilles to match door fixtures and the ceiling perfectly.

For nationally prominent brands such as New Look, sustainable practice is of the utmost importance. By specifying Airbloc’s leading technology, the company will be able to reduce its carbon emissions considerably and ensure excellent climate comfort for its crowds of busy shoppers.
