Energy Efficient Thermo-Block
Insulated Industrial Curtains
Our customer came to us with a challenge that many manufacturing plants and warehouse facilities face – how to maintain a certain temperature in one area without experiencing a total loss of efficiency in the other parts of the warehouse or plant. The customer leased a warehouse space “as is” and had come to accept that use of the A/C unit would not be a viable option given the configuration of the leased space and the inability to make a permanent change.
Thermo-Block Curtains by AmCraft Manufacturing, which is a thermally insulated industrial curtain, was a practical solution to this customer’s temperature control dilemma. The insulated curtain was used to cover a large doorway which led into the air-conditioned area and was designed to keep the air-conditioning within the designated space as well as provide extra R-Value (extra insulation), to assist with keeping the temperature where the customer needed it to be.
A customer can choose how thick they would like their industrial curtain to be. Often customers know the R-Value they need, especially if they have consulted with an HVAC company. However, sometimes they don’t know the R-Value they need so we ask them what is their temperature differential, what temperature do you want to keep a certain room at, and what is the temperature range outside of that room and this information enables us to assist them with determining the best thickness of insulation for the curtain.
Health and Safety
Installing an Insulated Industrial Curtain
A unique aspect of this installation is the customer used resourcefulness to cantilever the track off the wall 7 inches. However, AmCraft offers custom cantilever brackets that will allow a customer to achieve the same results as well. If you’re mounting parallel to or against a wall it is important to give the curtains space to retract or else the curtains will drag against the wall which will cause them to wear quicker.

In a typical leased situation, the landlord does not permit the installation of permanent structures. For example, you can’t build a wall to enclose a doorway or drywall yourself in. An industrial curtain is a less permanent option. Once you take the curtain down, you won’t be able to tell anything was there with the exception of a few holes to patch from the bolts used to install the curtain.
