Welding is a process of joining together two pieces of metal by heating the surfaces to the point of melting with an electric arc, blowpipe or other means and uniting them by pressing or hammering. Welding fumes are harmful and the content of welding rods, filler metals, coatings and base materials can also greatly impact workers health. So always take safety precautions and use protective equipments for maintaining good health. Welding curtains are an ideal way to keep the welding work area safe.
Welding curtains are one of the most important protective equipments which protects employees and property from dangerous UV radiation, welding sparks, blue light arc and painful flash burn. The welding curtains also protect eyes of co-workers by screening out harmful U.V. rays and their effects.
Welding curtain systems are an inexpensive way to protect and partition in welding applications such as MIG welding, TIG welding, Electro slag, Gas tungsten, Plasma cutting and Shielded metal arcs. It is the fastest way to divide space for greater productivity and safety. Compared to permanent walls, welding curtains are 90% less expensive.
Welding curtains can be custom manufactured to virtually any size to meet the exact requirements and a track suspension systems can be specially designed for the application. Welding curtains eliminates costly brick and mortar permanent type walls and separate conflicting tasks within work environments. It helps to improve working conditions and quickly creates privacy areas.
Welding curtains also helps to control contaminants, sound, temperature and light. All welding curtains allow crucial visibility in the work area. Transparent welding curtains allow outside observation of welding operations which provides both safety and supervision. The outside observers can see the welders and observe their work progress during the period of welding.
The effectiveness of these curtains can vary according to color as well as density which ensure eye safety and comfort to the workers. Welding curtains always protect workers from UV flash and welding sparks and these weld screens can be built in minutes. The welding screens can be easily moved and expanded to create custom configurations.
The frames are made of durable materials and they attach together without the use of hardware or tools. The screens can be either horizontal or vertical and the widths and heights are transposable. The welding curtains are securely fastened to each steel frame with zip ties which allow a quick replacement.
