Chemical Splash Curtain Uses
Chemical splash curtains can be utilized in any facility that deals with chemicals, contaminants and odors. They are typically installed and used in:
- Chemical mixing plants
- Power plants
- Chemical factories
- Pharmaceutical facilities
Benefits of Installing Chemical Splash Curtains
Chemical safety curtains aren’t just about having protection against chemicals. They also have the following benefits.
- Reduces the cost of having to build permanent walls
- Can be customized as per the space, purpose and length of use
- Effectively controls contaminants, sound, light and even temperature
- Conveniently separates working areas
- Enhances privacy and working conditions
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.
PVC \ VINYL
The most commonly used base material 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.
Which Chemicals are the Curtains Rated For?
Vinyl which is also known as PVC is a highly resistant material to most chemicals. That is why our chemical resistant industrial curtains are made from this versatile material. You can view a list of tested chemicals on this PDF Specification Sheet.
What if I don't see the chemicals I use on the sheet?
There are many variables to consider with chemical exposure, such as what chemical it is, its concentration, what form it is in, and how likely it is to come into direct contact with your industrial curtain. If you don't see the particular chemical that you are using on the above links then please ask Akon to send you a sample of the material that you can then expose to the chemical in the field to test how it reacts to the exposure.
