Food Processing Curtains by AmCraft are constructed to meet FDA and USDA compliance, as well as the requirements for other agencies. AmCraft’s Food Grade Curtains are ideal for creating separation barriers in food processing facilities and some pharmaceutical plants.
The construction, material and track systems for food grade curtains can be configured to comply with several different food processing authority requirements, including (but not limited to) the following agencies: USDA, NSF, CFIA-ACIA and FDA.
Designed to meet the ever-growing sanitation demands required of food manufacturing, processing and distribution facilities, Clean Glide is made of stainless steel and FDA approved Delrin® in its entirety. The track system has a cylindrical pipe configuration, which minimizes flat horizontal surfaces for debris to get caught on or sit, thus making it compliant with food safety regulations; much more so than AmCraft’s standard track system.
Benefits & Features of Food Processing Curtain Walls
Food grade curtains that adhere to the USDA, FDA, CFIA-ACIA and NSF agencies have a non-porous vinyl material that passes the federal codes for each respective compliance agency. A few of the benefits for AmCraft’s food processing curtain walls are (but not limited to):
Minimal wash down cycle time
Protects production from contaminants
Stainless Steel Track / Grommets
RF Welded construction prevents bacteria growth
Non-porous, 40mil thick USDA / FDA clear material
Non-porous, 40mil thick USDA / FDA solid blue material
Overlap connection 3 – 4″ on the top
Rail zipper connections
Compliance with the USDA, FDA & CFIA
USDA, FDA and CFIA food processing curtains are important for many food processing, storage, and packing plants. Our vinyl material is specially formulated to adhere to the federal and international standards for incidental contact with meat/poultry and/or dairy products.
Food Processing Curtain Materials
Our wash down curtains are constructed with materials and methods which specifically comply with the following sections of official regulation documents:
FSIS Docket 96-037F; 64 FR 56400 (USDA)
Specifies details on final revision on regulatory requirements which concern sanitation in official meat and poultry establishments.
FDA Food Code 2009: Chapter 6.
Specifies FDA regulation standards on physical facilities, including any indoor / outdoor floor, wall and/or ceiling surfaces.
Along with our USDA, FDA, CFIA compliant food processing vinyl curtain material, our track systems are also available in stainless steel. The additional stainless steel components create a totally compliant curtain wall / track system. Should you have a situation involving specific regulations not referenced herein, please contact us. We will be glad to research your requirement.
