Assess the desired temperature differential between the temperature-controlled area and the ambient temperature.
As important as the R-value is, we must address how the edges are attached to the building interior and sealed.
This temperature difference will determine the R-value requirement to maintain the desired temperature difference. Since R-value calculations are based on the temperature zoning from one side of an insulated divider curtains to the other side, we should cover the adequate conditioned air issue. The next step will address the sealing of all edges of the insulated curtain walls to the interior structure of your building.
Depending on the R value that you need to meet, insulation thickness ranges from 1″ thick to 6″ thick. These thicknesses are measured before the insulation is encased in the vinyl curtain shell. Due to the way that these curtains are made , some of the insulation may be slightly compressed when fully enclosed in the sewn and radio frequency welded outer layers of the curtain.
AmCraft does not install the curtain walls. These systems are made to be very user friendly. Additionally, each order is shipped with thorough installation instructions. We are also on hand via phone to answer any and all installation related questions.
A majority of our customers install themselves, or have an in house crew or contractor that install these. We also offer installation references through our installation partner companies, which are spread out within the United States. Our Sales Team will make sure we find the best Installer for your facility and location.
Energy costs are reduced by isolating work areas into specific temperature zones. The high cost of heating and cooling large industrial facilities is reduced using industrial temperature control curtains. In just a short time, the energy savings cover the cost of the curtains. Over time, it is an investment that not only makes economic sense, but provides immediate benefits for controlling operational costs and productivity.
Industrial applications for insulated curtain walls and insulated thermal panels include (but are not limited to):
An R-value is a measure of thermal resistance for certain types of construction material. R-value is the most commonly used gauge to measure heat and cooling loss as well as retention within thermal curtain wall structures and thermal industrial curtain enclosures. R-value is expressed in an easy-to-understand, numerical scale that rates materials according to their ability to insulate. The numerical scale begins with 1 (very little insulation) to well over 35 (universally recognized as a benchmark for sufficient, insulated and permanent construction).
To determine the necessary R-value, we must first understand the customer’s requirements, the desired temperature differential, and then present the most viable options to help the customer design a temperature control warehouse curtain system specifically for the space needs.
