You want a wall for your food production facility, but you are not sure if a permanent, brick-and-mortar wall will work for your application. Now, what if you could redesign, reconfigure, and customize your production space without significant investment, downtime, and permanence of traditional construction? Well, don’t worry – there are Industrial Curtain Walls from TRAX.
In simple words, Industrial Curtain Walls are lightweight PVC partitions that function as excellent temporary walls, which are created to easily slide open and remain out of the way when not in use. They are especially used in large areas that need both easy access and environmental separation.
While they are used in a number of production facilities, ranging from pharmaceutical to agriculture to factories, their impact on food production is profound. Food production facilities demand specific environment safety requirements to prevent problems of contamination, sanitation, fire, and many more.
With industrial curtain walls, you can easily divide work areas. A food production facility has several different areas that are divided on the basis of the job performed there. Partitioning work zones create a leaner and more efficient production and processing area. It also helps to create more usable space, seal off unused warehouse spaces, and separate noisy areas – all without the expensive cost of permanent walls. This will eventually help distinguish between different processes, protect workers and products, and contain cross-contamination.
Hundred different functions are carried out in a food production facility every day, with most of them being potentially hazardous in case of even a simple error. Industrial curtain walls give protection against most chemicals, metal dust, airborne particles, fumes, water overspray, welding and grinding sparks, and many other industrial hazards that can cause irrevocable damage to workers and equipment. These curtains are very effective containing fire, smoke, and fume, in addition to being UV-resistant.
