Industrial insulated curtains help to prevent condensation from humidity build up when enough air movement is provided. Insulated curtain walls are ideal for controlling the temperature variances necessary for cold storage applications. Used in loading docks, warehouse separation and food processing plants, a vinyl insulating industrial curtain provides a barrier from temperature variances around the temperature controlled area.
Heavy industrial insulated curtains are used for extreme temperature separation applications, such as radiant heat sources.
Industrial insulated curtain applications require a specific level of insulation to be effective for their use. Most of our insulated thermal panel options provide retractability for easy accessibility to equipment or into work areas. See our options of light, medium, and heavy insulation to determine the level of insulation you need, and whether industrial insulated curtains are an option for your requirement. Industrial insulating curtains are easy to install in most facilities, although professional installation may be required for customized applications
Energy costs are reduced by isolating work areas into specific temperature zones. The high cost of heating and cooling large industrial facilities is reduced using insulated curtain divider walls. In just a short time, the energy savings cover the cost of the curtains. Over time, it is an investment that not only makes economic sense, but provides immediate benefits for controlling operational costs and productivity.
Industrial applications for insulated curtains and insulated thermal panels include (but are not limited to):
Insulated industrial curtain walls retain the climate requirements necessary to store and produce temperature-sensitive products. The insulating divider curtains AmCraft manufactures can be installed within a matter of days and is available a fraction of the cost, providing industrial facilities, plants, and factories the benefits that save both time and money.
An R-value is a measure of thermal resistance for certain types of construction material. R-value is the most commonly used gauge to measure heat and cooling loss as well as retention within insulated curtain wall structures and thermal industrial curtain enclosures. R-value is expressed in an easy-to-understand, numerical scale that rates materials according to their ability to insulate. The numerical scale begins with 1 (very little insulation) to well over 35 (universally recognized as a benchmark for sufficient, insulated and permanent construction).
To determine the necessary R-value, we must first understand the customer’s insulated thermal panel requirement, the desired temperature differential, and then present the most viable options to help the customer design an insulated curtain wall and divider system specifically for the space needs.
FIRST STEP: Assess the desired temperature differential between the temperature-controlled area and the ambient temperature.
This temperature difference will determine the R-value requirement to maintain the desired temperature difference. Since R-value calculations are based on the temperature zoning from one side of an insulated divider curtain to the other side, we should cover the adequate conditioned air issue. The next step will address the sealing of all edges of the thermal industrial curtain wall to the interior structure of your building.
SECOND STEP: As important as the R-value is, we must address how the edges are attached to the building interior and sealed.
AmCraft has edge sealing solutions for each of our thermal insulating divider curtains that are compatible with all types of interior building construction. Edge sealing facilitates an airtight seal where the insulated curtains connect to the interior of your structure. Edge sealing is most important on the top and bottom because of the impact of what is called the convection effect.
