There are many advantages to adding a ceiling cover to an industrial curtain wall enclosure. The chief benefit is that it can act as a seal to your entire enclosed area. Whether you are trying to contain dust, maintain a certain temperature, or block out light, putting a ceiling cover over the top of an enclosed area will greatly increase the functionality of your enclosure. Certain industries, such as the food processing industry, require that their existing ceiling be covered if there are any non-food grade members in it, in order to be considered compliant. Additionally, spray booths often need a ceiling that is lower than their building’s existing ceiling. These are two examples of facility types that benefit greatly from using a ceiling cover on their enclosure.
The one slight disadvantage of the industrial curtain wall enclosure ceiling top is that it is typically more costly than an industrial curtain wall system that goes all the way up to the existing ceiling or utilizes a filler panel. The cost is largely due to the amount of support and construction needed for the enclosure. But in many cases, the added benefits of using a ceiling cover due to the increased functionality, far outweighs the additional expense. Installation may require a little bit of work, but with the detailed instructions and all the necessary hardware that we provide, we make installing the enclosure as easy as possible.
It’s not a secret that industrial curtain wall enclosures can enhance the functionality of your work space. From using a reinforced clear vinyl to allow the light in, to being an airtight enclosure, industrial curtain enclosure systems are beneficial to many industries. Our grid support ceiling cover will give your enclosure adequate long lasting support.
