How to Divide Warehouse Space
A warehouse is a large space and partitioning that space is often required for many different reasons. These can range from production needs, temperature zoning, construction, or even separating tenants. You can use rigid fixed walls, also known as demising walls, or you can use a more flexible and less expensive soft wall. These curtains are the new go to solution for warehouse separation walls due to those key benefits. Below are 5 of the most common applications for warehouse partitions.
Creating New Spaces - Re-Working Floor Space
As the demands for business increases into a new place within a business, companies are likely to search for extra space. For business or companies with such challenge, the most effective way of doing this is through maximizing existing space in the business. There are so many ways a business can take up such challenge this could be by re-configuring the outlook of the warehouse or by enclosure. Of course the previous mentioned methods can take time to install but the AKON segregation curtain system challenges the conventional partition thereby offering a more cost-effective solution; segregation curtains for allergens are quicker and stress free to install. This form of solution is designed to fit around lump and irregular elements too.
Types of Warehouse Partition Systems
Wash Down - Allergens And Food Processing Lines
To maintain hygiene standards in a facility that requires wash down of production lines then a divider is required. One of the production lines generally has to be fully functional while the other line is being cleaned. This however may lead to hygiene issues if segregation is not done properly. The AKON wash down dividers are the solution to proper hygiene maintenance in a facility during these wash down processes. It decreases downtime by creating barriers between production lines (lines in operation and lines being routinely cleaned) thereby maintaining hygiene standard.
Temperature Zones - Separating Warehouse Temperatures
Temperature regulation is common within the pharmaceutical and food industries, where food and drugs are sensitive to slight change in temperature. Making room for more space can be more cost-effective than renting a storage facility, and this existing space more often gives dual functions under the same roof. Therefore segregating the warehouse to regulate temperature is necessary and there is no better way to go about this than installing the Akon warehouse temperature zoning curtains for temperature regulation. The dividers are designed with 5' wide panels with thermal properties responsible for the separation of different temperature or environmental conditions. This method has been used in various project and is widely used in business and companies within the food and pharmaceutical industry.
Construction - Avoid Contamination During Renovation
The only way this can be achieved is only if the facility will continue its normal operation during the installation of a warehouse segregation curtain. However, it will be a nightmare if the operation is ongoing and the renovation work is being carried out in a facility of food, drugs or manufacturing facility. The potential contamination from dust and airborne mess can cause a disaster. To avoid this, it is possible to segregate the work from continuing warehouse processes by using a warehouse segregation curtain divider. The overlap panel system in the divider gives rise to a screen which is responsible for shielding dust and other forms of mess that can cause contamination, it offers 99% dust seal when properly installed. This system is preferable to aluminum stud or masonry partitions and it has been used by food and pharmaceutical producing companies worldwide.
