Industrial Curtains for Personal Use
Two different customers approached us with unique, yet similar needs pertaining to spaces they have designated for personal use. One customer works on hobbies in their garage and wanted the ability to control the temperature while working. The other customer had built a shop within their barn and wanted to leave it open for natural light, but wanted the flexibility to move large projects into and out of the shop without having to squeeze them through the main barn door. In addition, they also wanted to heat and cool the shop efficiently without heating and cooling the entire barn.
For the customer with the barn, their needs were truly unique to their personal preference. Living in a rural area where farmers have barns and shops to work on their equipment poses a major challenge for having a heated workspace because when the barn door is open, heat is quickly lost. In addition, it’s difficult to get equipment in and out of a small heated shop. In order to mitigate this issue, when the customer had the shop built, both the walls and the ceiling were insulated. Two windows and a main door were also installed. However, one entire wall was left open to the barn, which made heating and cooling the ultimate challenge.
The major misconception is that because the curtains are designated ‘industrial curtains” the aesthetic or cost would not be suitable for a customer who wanted them for personal use. However, the fact that the curtains are industrial can be a benefit, as they are inherently easy to clean because of the industrial quality vinyl fabric used to construct them. The everyday hobbyist who works on cars or does woodworking and wants to contain the dust, dirt and debris from their projects in a designated area, can easily maintain their industrial curtain by wiping it down. They don’t have to deal with the hassle of removing the curtains and machine washing them every time they complete a project.
