Welding Curtain Walls



Welding curtain walls generally cover larger areas where it is not feasible to use portable welding screens. These curtains are fabricated from welding Vinyl which will block the harmful UV rays from welding in addition to being fully fire retardant. The curtain walls come in any size and shape as they are made to order. They can be very small or up to hundreds of feet in length.

Welding Curtain Wall Benefits

Industrial welding curtain walls are designed to resist flying sparks from arc welding and grinding operations while also providing a line of sight to both sides of the curtain. This line of sight is tinted with a UV blocking film to protect your eyes from indirect viewing.

  • Create a safe work area
  • Protection shields others from bright arcs and sparks
  • A quick solution for dividing work areas
  • Improves efficiency by defining work areas
  • Can be taken down and reused in other locations

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'.


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.


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.


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.


Tinted Vision Panels

Tinted 14 mil welding panels allow a line of sight into work areas which increases safety and allows for a brighter work area. Choose from several different colors.


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 rectangualr or follow the slope of the roof.


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. Strip doors can be tinted to block UV rays. Choose from tinted red, blue, green, and amber.
