Considerations for Heat Resistant Curtains

When you are choosing an industrial heat resistant curtain you need to take into consideration several factors which will help us supply the best heat reflective curtain for your application. Here are the four most important considerations:

  • What is the maximum temperature the curtain will have to endure?
  • How long will the curtain have to endure that temperature?
  • How far away from the heat source with the curtain be located?
  • Are you trying to block / reflect the heat or are to contain it?

 Mounting the Industrial Heat Curtain

There are several different options for hanging the heat resistant curtains. These include industrial curtain track which allows the curtains to roll open to allow access or static position mounts for curtains that are fixed in place. To your right you can see an image showing the three most common mounts.

  • The first image is a static mount which uses angle iron that is attached to existing structure and then attached to the curtain via the grommets that are located at the top every 12 inches.
  • The second image shows a track and trolley design which uses steel rollers to roll the curtain side to side.
  • The third image shows a steel aircraft cable is strung between two points and allows the curtain to be supported with steel S-Hooks.

Heat Resistant Strip Curtains

The material can also be fabricated into strips which allow for access into and out of areas for people or product. These industrial heat resistant strip curtains can even be used at the entrance of coke ovens where there are extreme temperatures. The heat reflecting industrial oven curtains then keep the heat inside of the oven where it is produced which in turn saves on utility costs. Heat blocking curtains can also be produced in much wider strips based on the size of the opening you are trying to cover. They are a very good solution for conveyor openings. The advantages include:

  • Greatly reduce heat loss
  • Can endure extreme heat that PVC strip curtains cannot
  • Can be quickly replaced if damaged
  • Bright colors serve as a visual barrier
