You can control and contain sandblast material with the use of the Akon line of sandblast curtains. These curtains form walls around the area where the blasting is taking place. This in turn will greatly reduce the loss of blasting media and keep the surrounding areas clean and debris free. Designed from a material which is identical to airbags and at a fraction of the cost of similar rubber sandblasting curtains.
Depending on your needs we have several different materials which we can offer. For sandblast curtains which will not see a direct blast, we can offer an 18 ounce vinyl in a multitude of colors. This material is reinforced with polyester, making it a durable and economical solution. For applications where it is possible for a direct blast to take place, the thicker airbag material can be used which provides heavy-duty sandblasting protection.
Mounting the sandblast curtains
There are several options for mounting the sandblasting Curtains. One option is to simply have the curtains outfitted with brass grommets at the top, bottom, and sides. You can then simply zip tie the curtain to any structure that you have available.
Another option is to purchase and install the Akon industrial curtain trackwhich will allow the sandblast curtain to slide left and right when not needed. While the curtain track is a little more expensive than a field zip tie mount, it does add extra flexibility for your sandblasting curtain application.
Finally, you can have the shot blasting curtains as a freestanding containment with the use of our 2” x 2” tube construction frames and floor plates. Simply tell us the length x width and the number of sides and we will provide you with a quotation.
If you need to completely enclose the area where sandblasting is taking place, then you can check out our line of industrial containment curtains. These are freestanding structures that feature four walls and a roof to completely enclose dust creating processes. You can click here for more information.
