The cost to remodel your existing warehouse can climb upwards to the tens of thousands depending on the desired layout of your facility. New construction build-outs can be equally expensive as the site has to be completely re-configured to suit your company’s specifications. If you are looking to create an instant transformation that will give your warehouse space a whole new look without significantly impacting your bottom line; then here are five steps you can take right now using industrial warehouse curtains.
Industrial warehouse curtains are made to your size specifications, so it is important to measure the space that you’d like the curtains to cover. In terms of width, you should measure out the raw opening that you want the industrial curtains to encompass. This can be between two walls, spanning vertical columns, or in a totally open area. When you measure the width, make sure to note any structural members that you’d like the industrial curtain wall to include or spatial constraints that it will need to work within.
In terms of height, it is important to measure the height from your floor to you ceiling. If you have a sloped ceiling, you should measure the heights at the lowest point and the highest point. Additionally, if you do not want your industrial warehouse curtain to go all the way up to your ceiling, please measure the height that you do want the curtains to run to.
There are a variety of accessories and add-ons available for your industrial warehouse curtain. If it is important that your industrial curtain wall is air tight, you will want to consider adding a filler panel, floor sweep, valance, or velcro edge sealing as needed. If you are concerned about your curtain wall blowing around due to ventilation or winds in your facility, D-ring tie downs or a chain weighted bottom could be valuable assets. Additionally, putting a vision panel or a logo into your industrial curtain are other options that will subtly add a more aesthetically pleasing design to your warehouse space.
Most facilities that purchase industrial warehouse curtains install them on their own. The curtain and track systems are designed for user friendly installation. However, if your facility does not have the capacity or does not feel comfortable installing this system, you can use a recommended installer in your area.
