VINYL

The most commonly used base fabrics for industrial splash curtains are heavy duty vinyl coated polyester fabric. Vinyl is the common name for PVC. Both are, in fact, the same material. The 18 oz. Material is either PVC Coated Polyester or PVC Laminated Polyester. Their exterior seams are made from rot-resistant nylon thread while their interior seams are heat welded to ensure that the curtains are sealed against air and liquid.
The hems are chain-weighted using heavy duty galvanized chains so that the industrial splash curtains are stable enough to withstand draft. There are roller hooks you can use to slide and retract the curtains along their roller track systems. You can customize these tracks to your desired length or shape.
In connecting multiple acid splash curtains, they have 2” Velcro side attachments. These attachments can connect your curtains to wood, cement or brick walls.

RUBBER SILICONE

Rubber silicone is another option for containing more corrosive chemicals. This material is also much thicker than our standard 18-ounce Vinyl which is .020” thick. The Rubber Silicone has a thickness up to 1/4” thick. Also, just like the Vinyl, the material is easily cut to length in the field using an ordinary pair of scissors without “end fray” or releasing irritable fiber particulates.

Available Sizes

All our curtains are custom-made to ensure you get the perfect fit around the area which has the hazardous chemicals. Ideally, you should have your chemical splash curtains at around 30-40’ in width for easier installation. If you need to cover a wider space, you can simply install multiple curtains and connect them with Velcro strips or magnets.
Our curtains have a maximum height of 60’. In case of height issues, you can purchase valance panels to preserve your facility’s ceiling and to eliminate the additional cost of renovating the top half area of your structure.

Chain Weight Bottoms

If you have a slight breeze or are power washing near the curtain then we can add a galvanized 3/16" chain weight to the bottom of the curtain.

Floor Anchor Straps

Velcro straps hold your curtain in place if wind is present or a more secure curtain is required. These anchors feature Velcro straps which loop through a D-ring which is anchored into the cement floor. Typically spaced every 4'.

NOTE: This option is available with all materials except rubber silicone.

Floor Sweeps

A floor sweep seals the open area between the curtain and the floor. It attaches to the main curtain by Velcro. They are 6″ tall and as long as the entire length of the curtain. These are ideal for controlling dust, fumes, odors and other undesirable elements. They can also be replaced in the future should the friction from the floor wear them out.

NOTE: This option is available with all materials except rubber silicone.

Magnet Seals

Seal magnets are an idea to attach curtains to each other or adjacent steel walls and beams. Best utilized in dusty areas that would clog up Velcro.

NOTE: This option is available with all materials except rubber silicone.

Velcro Seals

You can choose to have Velcro installed along the perimeter of the divider which will allow you to combine multiple curtains into one larger curtain. You can also attach self adhesive Velcro to fixed objects such as walls for a more complete seal. Great for dust control and temperature control.

NOTE: This option is available with all materials except rubber silicone.

Valance Panels

A valance is made from the same material as your curtain. They are used to seal the opening above the curtain. This is generally the space from the roof deck to the bottom of the joist or purlin. They can be rectangular or follow the slope of the roof.

NOTE: This option is available with all materials except rubber silicone.

Walk Through Strip Doors

Strip doors can be sewn into the curtain or free-standing for larger versions. These allows quick movement of people and forklifts into and out of the industrial curtains.

NOTE: This option is available with all materials except rubber silicone.
