Wirth AirDoor – Keep the outside air outside

Winner – CIBSE Building Performance Awards 2023 – Product/Innovation of the Year (Thermal Comfort)

As an acknowledged supplier of high-tech, innovative, energy-saving solutions to the retail and commercial buildings sector, the AirDoor is the next generation in the series of green solutions from Wirth Research. It was designed in response to a query from a client who described an issue affecting many of their branches; whenever the doors were open, strong winds would gust through, causing heat loss and unpleasant conditions for staff and customers, negatively impacting upon productivity, trade and carbon footprint.


Designed and Manufactured in the UK, AirDoor’s development was co-funded by Innovate UK, the UK Government’s innovation agency. Innovate UK is part of UK Research and Innovation, set up to drive productivity and economic growth by supporting businesses to develop and realise the potential of new ideas.
