Industrial curtain enclosures serve a purpose of isolating a given area in order to facilitate a certain function and/or operational process within your workspace. Some of the most common industrial uses for an enclosure are to shield areas/workers from noise, properly insulate an enclosed area, to create a cleanroom enclosure, blocking light and/or dust, NESHAP compliance for auto body shops, and other applications across various industries.
Some of the Material Options include…
*May require filler panels to seal open trusses to optimize edge sealing.
Industrial curtain enclosures that block noise can increase productivity by isolating the source of the noise, protecting workers from distracting sounds, and also to meet OSHA requirements of noise reduction. Another use for curtain wall enclosures would be the reverse usage – enclosing a designated area so the ambient sound outside of the enclosure does not interfere with the interior processes. For more information on this type of enclosure, please go to: Noise Control Enclosures.
A softwall cleanroom enclosure typically consists a metal frame / structure, which can be mobile or stationary, covered with a flexible, non-porous vinyl skin. Entry and exit points, as well as configuration, are discretionary. The available material options for the flexible vinyl “skin” are typically dictated by your requirement. Most applications are more effectively handled with an enclosed top type of construction. All AmCraft enclosure curtains have the standard 2ft x 4ft or 2ft x 2ft grid type ceiling construction so as to accept standard lighting, filtration, and ventilation units.
Once the curtain walls have been attached securely to the structure, the finished product will effectively enclose an area, creating a workspace that is easy to maintain and reconfigurable, if necessary. Available sizes range from 8ft x 8ft to 20ft x 40ft. We urge you to check with your local fire authority relative to the viability of the enclosure curtain system you envision.
Most AmCraft industrial curtain enclosures are at a standard height (8ft high) and are easily erected with 2-3 people and basic tools. All components can be modular, which builds in flexibility. Attachment of the flexible vinyl curtains to the curtain enclosure assembly is included and encloses the given area effectively. Airtight edge sealing options are also available.
