How Can Warehouse Curtains Benefit Your Auto Shop?

In auto body and repair shops, there are often jobs that require special attention with regard to either containing individual work bays or keeping airborne particles from polluting the rest of the shop.  One helpful method of separation is to install warehouse curtains in your auto shop. These curtains are specifically made for industrial use and can be made to fit any space you need.  Using enclosure curtains helps protect workers, and with flame-rated and HAZMAT-safe materials, these curtains can be a great addition to an auto shop.

Keep Dust, Paint, and Water Where They Belong

Using curtains to separate work areas helps keep your shop clean and neat: dust, oil, paint, water, and other debris are kept contained within the enclosures.   Using warehouse curtains to protect areas from outdoor elements can lend more flexibility to your workspace.  You can also implement clear strip curtain in your shop, which provide egress (or passthroughs) for direct access into areas with equipment or vehicles while still effectively separating work areas.  Because the standard option is clear, these panels allow for easily viewing activities on the other side of the curtain without opening it.

Conform to NESHAP Regulations with Warehouse Curtains

If you work in an auto shop that uses paint or other hazardous pollutants, you’ll need to comply with NESHAP regulations.  The regulations set forth by the EPA state that in addition to using booth filters with 98% capture efficiency for paint booth exhaust systems, shops must us paint overspray booths to enclose the area.

This is where the use of warehouse curtains comes in.  Creating a paint booth is easy: create a freestanding area or build off of existing walls.  Auto shop curtains come with tops and built-in, filtered, make up air panels, and can be customized with logos, letterings, warnings, or other graphics to best suit their application within your shop.  You can also install mounting systems to create either a stationary or retractable curtain system.

Auto shop work, by nature, is grimy.  Help keep your shop clean and in great condition by installing warehouse curtains, both for paint booths and for general separation of workspaces.  AmCraft offers a variety of different warehouse and industrial curtain systems.  For more information or to learn about what would best suit your location, contact us today at 847-439-4565 or email us at sales@amcraftonline.com.

Industrial Curtain Walls for Auto Repair Shops

Auto repair shops are notoriously grungy – it’s not a lack of maintenance, but simply inherent in the line of work.  With oil, grease, rubber, metal debris, and other messy materials, it’s unsurprising that auto repair shops can get a little dingy.  But there are some effective ways to keep working conditions as safe and clean as possible.  One option is to use industrial curtain walls.  Curtains not only section off the interior of the shop, keeping jobs separate, but they have plenty of other benefits, as well.

Protect Body Shop Workers and Equipment

Using industrial curtain walls in an auto body shop can maintain safety on the premises.  These curtains protect body shop workers from sparks, odors, paint overspray and solvents, dust, debris, and more.  For instance, paint booth enclosures can be created using industrial curtains.  They contain the paint and fumes so that they don’t go all over your shop.  Aside from paint spray booth dividers, industrial curtain walls can be used to keep dust and water where they belong.  Protecting both auto shop workers and the equipment within the shop are the best functions of curtain walls.

Custom-Sized, Easy to Install and Move

Industrial curtain walls are great for this sort of application and use due to their customizable options, such as the tracking size and the method of tracking installed.  Additionally, they are easy to install and are movable, making them a  flexible option to create work areas wherever you need them.  AmCraft Manufacturing offers complete systems for setting up curtain walls, including track systems and curtain walls.

Whether you are interested in curtain walls for making paint spray booths, wash bays, car repair shop workspaces, or any other auto body shop needs, our products will fit your needs.  Curtain edge options can increase the effectiveness of curtains depending on your needs, and we can also add any logos, lettering, or other graphics to your curtain walls.  They can be printed directly onto the vinyl curtain material, but can also be sewn or welded onto the curtain.  These durable easy to maintain curtains are an ideal choice; flame rated and HAZMAT safe, they help your shop comply with NESHAP regulations.
