How much wind a particular industrial curtain can endure is a tough question. It relates to such variables as wind speed, curtain size, attachment points, hardware style, temperature and many other variables. They all play a key role in the longevity of a curtain in windy conditions. With that, small curtains can handle a fair amount of wind while large curtains cannot.
Please remember that these curtains once erected act as large sails which produce a tremendous amount of stress on their attachment points. Basically, all manufacturers will inform you that their curtains are designed to block the breeze but can get damaged in strong winds. If you have wind speeds above 19-24 mph, it is best to retract the curtains and let the wind blow through to prevent damage. If high winds are going to be present then please inform us before your curtain is produced so we can reinforce critical components.
Curtain Track Hardware will ensure you have the ability to retract the curtains in high winds. If a fixed curtain is a must then you should reinforce it with aircraft cables on both sides which can reinforce the curtain when the wind blows. For moderate wind locations you can also use our windproof curtains. Please remember that even these curtains need to be pulled back in high winds as well.
