Common Questions

Should I include the Vision Panel?
Are the curtains easy to wash when dirty?

Should I include the Vision Panel?

It’s important to consider how you intend to use your wash down curtains. For instance if you have an unsightly work area then you might not want to choose the clear vision panel. However, if you want to increase safety and allow for a brighter work area than the vision panel would be ideal. Note: The vision panel is no additional cost.

Are the curtains easy to wash when dirty?

These wash down bay curtains are very easy to clean due to the nature of the material they are made of. The Vinyl is very smooth which means you can generally clean them by simply washing them off with a hose. If you need to clean them further, simply use a mild detergent and a rag to wipe them.

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.


Filter Panels

Primarily used in paint and spray boths, filter panels allows for clean air to enter the curtain enclosure and filter dirty air. The filter panels Velcro to the curtain for easy removal and replacement.


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.
