AmCraft’s heavy duty industrial outdoor curtains are designed to with hold most weather conditions. These specialized curtains are not intended to replace exterior walls or solid overhead doors. However, when reinforced at the fastening points and retrofitted with wind vents, the Outdoor Vinyl curtain can provide a temporary or permanent divider or enclosure.

Wind relief options
Wind is the heavy duty curtain biggest enemy. To relieve the stress on the anchor points we recommend one of our
wind relief options. Depending on the expected weather conditions around the curtain we will help you to choose from
U-Cut 4.75″ high x 6.5″ wide to provide wind relief . This U-Cuts are spread out the curtain surface to let strong winds through.
Mesh insert with solid flap on the back side.
This a very effective wind relief option.
It works if you have the winds just coming from one side. Mostly used for
enclosures. The flap hangs vertically down when there is no wind. From the front side you do see the black 12″ high mesh material.

Bottom Mount Options
The D-Ring options are chosen if it is necessary to move the curtain from time to time.
This Velcro strap loops
through an anchored D-Ring. This allows you to tighten the curtain down as needed.
This bottom edge is
mounted down permanently with an angle
extrusion. The Curtain is placed between the ground and the angle.
The curtain has a reinforced
bottom hem with grommets placed roughly every 5′. The carbineers allow for easy
attaching and detaching.
Vertical Reinforcement Straps
With Top to bottom reinforcement
straps, the curtain can be tightened
onto the D- Rings anchored into the
ground. The reinforcement strips were
added to the curtain in a more effective
manner than sewing them directly to
the curtain. We stitch the webbing
straps to a vinyl strap and weld the vinyl
strap to the curtain to prevent
perforating the curtain fabric with stitch
holes. In this manner, the stress is not
applied to the sewn stitches but is
distributed along the welded seams
Unfortunately there will be eventually some wear and tear on the Outdoor Curtains because of weather
conditions. The material has UV protection, but colors may still fade if directly exposed to the sun for a long
period of time. We recommend keeping the panels smaller so if a weather damage appears you would only
have to replace the damaged section.
AmCraft offers a flexibility in construction
Because we manufacture our products in house, we can adjust the construction of our Outdoor Curtains to your application. Common alterations include:
Custom pass throughs with magnets or zippers
Wind reliefs placed were the curtains are mostly exposed to the winds
Replaceable windows where most needed
Reinforcements where you expect most wear and tear
The Radio Frequency welded seam construction of the curtain wall enhances the durability and performance, which can
help resist exposure to the weather elements while serving as a much needed barrier for your operations.
A few of the most common industries and application for AmCraft's Outdoor Curtains are:
Outside Asphalt production
Car Wash Curtains
Auto Body Shop Curtains
Shipping & Receiving Dock Door Curtains
If you plan to use the industrial curtain for a completely outdoor application or as a permanent replacement for solid doors or walls, note that there are no official ratings and/or certifications on the ability to withstand natural disasters, inclement weather,
extreme outdoor temperatures, strong winds, precipitations, flooding, and any other acts of God not listed. Such uses are not recommended. AmCraft will offer recommendations for proper storage and care of the product prior to such an event, but there is no guarantee that it will be able to withstand extreme conditions. It is important to relay as much detail about the environment of the industrial curtain’s location as possible to our technical support specialist in order to gauge available options and recommendations for your outdoor curtain wall project.
