For much of human history, agricultural duties have been performed on a small scale. In the 20th century, technology transformed agriculture into a highly specialized industry that is largely executed on a commercial scale to this day.
Commercial barns allow farmers to produce fruits, vegetables and grains and care for livestock en masse. However, that kind of scale requires careful management of the conditions within the barn. How can industrial curtains be used in different types of commercial barns?
Commercial barns are larger, industrial facilities designed for specific purposes. Common products that are housed in these buildings include:
Commercial agriculture requires efficient production, whether that means growing the largest crop possible or managing a high number of animals, supported by precise control. Commercial barns are not simply large, wide-open facilities. Farmers need commercial barns to account for factors like:
Commercial barns can, of course, have solid walls in place, but this is not always practical if you are reorganizing or expanding your operations. Industrial curtain walls offer a cost-effective solution for managing temperature and airflow in separate spaces within barns.
You have the option of installing single-ply curtains or insulated barn curtains in a retractable or stationary configuration. In either scenario, curtains have add-on’s, or options, that will make the curtain airtight. Floor sweeps, Velcro or magnet edges, valances, and filler panels ensure that the curtain can fit tightly to whatever structure you have in place.
Industrial curtains are made of durable and easy-to-clean material, qualities essential for life in a commercial barn. Curtain materials that are anti-microbial and food grade are also offered, to meet additional specifications required in different processing applications. Hardware systems are offered in galvanized steel and stainless steel, as well.
Installed to meet your needs, commercial barn curtains can improve energy efficiency by managing airflow and temperature and protect products, animals, and equipment from the elements.
