Most people would agree that every product has its limitations. Industrial curtain walls are no exception to that rule. Industrial curtains are a very durable option for dividing and insulating a work space. They are made of vinyl, which makes them waterproof and can easily handle somewhat rougher environments. Industrial curtains can withstand being cleaned on a regular basis which makes maintenance almost worry free.
However, as durable as they may be, there are still situations that an industrial curtain wall is not made to survive. Try as you might to exercise your inner MacGyver and coax the curtain system to perform outside of the scope of its innate capabilities, using industrial curtain systems for extreme scenarios ultimately leads to an epic fail.
Here are a few extremes that you will most likely want to avoid if you are considering using an industrial curtain wall. Try these at your own risk…
If you frequently work outdoors and would like a wind-free outdoor work environment in some place such as the Bahamas during hurricane season, then installing industrial curtain walls is not an ideal solution. Waterproof does not easily translate to hurricane proof. Industrial curtains are not made to withstand strong winds and outdoor environments. However, if you are feeling rather adventurous and confident that the industrial curtains will somehow defy the odds and stand up to the potentially harsh environment, then it’s important to note that industrial curtains used outdoors do not carry a warranty.
Before deciding to utilize an industrial curtain wall in your facility, it is important to consider the elements that it will be subjected to. Taking these factors into consideration will help to ensure that your industrial curtain system will lead a long, healthy, and productive life.
