Winter is coming. In fact, in many areas winter has arrived earlier than expected. With the change in seasons comes drastic shifts in the temperature. Is your facility weather-proofed? Here is a quick three step checklist to follow in order to winterize your warehouse and get weather ready:
- Check Your Loading Dock
The loading dock of your warehouse or facility is typically the primary source of energy inefficiency and where your building will most likely experience the highest loss of hot or cold air. Creating temperature separation with industrial insulated curtain walls form an effective barrier between your dock area and the other work spaces within your facility.
- Insulate if You Refrigerate
For many food distribution companies and manufacturing plants where food storage is a primary function, managing temperature differentials within various areas of the facility is a year-round goal. Incorporating insulated temperature control curtains into your space planning arsenal gives you added peace of mind. Primarily because when insulated curtain walls are strategically and properly used to enclose cold storage areas, they can help to maintain the required temperature range without compromise from the heat zones in other parts of the building.
- Flex Your Temperature Control
The most important aspect to consider while getting your facility optimized for temperature change is flexibility. Consider the 3 P’s of workflow management: People, Production and Practicality. Will creating separation and insulating certain areas improve the comfort level of your employees? Will this newly enclosed work space require entry and exit points for easier accessibility? Is it practical to erect a permanent wall versus installing an insulated industrial curtain wall that can be relocated if necessary should your spatial needs change? Temperature control curtains certainly can offer the cost-effective flexibility you need to weather adapt your facility.
AmCraft Manufacturing crafts insulated curtain wall solutions that speak to the importance of flexibility and adaptability by offering custom sizes and stationary or retractable mounting options. One of AmCraft’s best-selling temperature control curtains is their 4” thick semi-flexible stationary insulated curtain wall which can be customized to a maximum height of up to 40ft, which is exceptionally higher than the industry standard.
When the big chill hits it’s best to be ready. One of the best decisions you can make for your facility is installing an energy-efficient, temperature control curtain wall solution.
