Have you ever used moveable indoor curtains for your home? They are amazing at allowing easy access to specific rooms while keeping steam and other contaminants away. For example, you can use such curtains for the kitchen or shower. By installing a small track, you can slide and move them with ease. If you need to go through, slid them away. There is nothing more convenient than that.
The idea behind industrial curtains is the same. The only differences are their size, dimensions, and materials. Industrial curtains can cover larger spaces. Depending on their materials, the curtains can withstand chemicals, odors, high temperatures, and more. There is a simple goal behind this – dividing large spaces efficiently. Some areas conduct dangerous operations and need isolation from the rest of the facility. Other areas need separation for a more efficient workflow. The moveable industrial curtains will divide large spaces, so you can position everything however you see fit. The versatility would be of benefit if you have vehicular traffic, periodic storage changes, or temporary personnel.
ALCO’s Industrial Curtains will keep water, steam, fumes, odors, paint overspray, weld spatter, grinding cast off, noise, light, and unauthorized access from entering or leaving the area. By isolating dangerous materials, you will protect the employees, inventory, and equipment. You can quickly and easily use a curtain to separate work zones. After the work is ready, you can securely remove the curtain dividers and store them until next time.
ALCO’s Industrial Outdoor Curtains will help you separate products, workers, and the indoor environment from the outdoor elements. Our curtains are larger, cheaper, and as effective as any door. Installation is quick and easy. Side to side movement is possible thanks to the industrial curtain tracks. There is a wide range of colors and materials to choose from. You can choose between resistance to high temperatures, dangerous chemicals, and more.
We offer a rich choice of hardware and accessories such as curtain tracks, floor sweeps, clear vision panels, a seal Velcro, chain weights, anchor straps, strip door entrances, security devices, brackets, and others. Customize your curtain the way you want it to look.
If dirt and debris are contaminating your working environment, damaging the goods, and endangering the wellbeing of the employees, you will need some form of protection. An industrial curtain might be the solution you are looking for. It will create a safe working environment by protecting employees from noise, light, dust, fumes, odors, different chemicals, and other harmful elements.
There is no better way if you want to keep the inside environment clean and secure. Having quality outdoor curtains is a great way to maximize the efficiency of any warehouse, industrial complex, and paint station while keeping everything and everyone safe.

- Your privacy: The ideal curtain will give you a clear full view of the nearby area while preventing anyone from looking inside your room.
- Improve the ambiance: Choosing the perfect outdoor curtains will help create a relaxing environment. Having some light pass through while listening to a calm breeze is fascinating and enlightening. The curtains will keep the space warm during the winter and cool during the summer.

An Effective And Inexpensive Choice For Backyard Privacy And Comfort
While having a private, backyard living space would be wonderful, constructing one from scratch is expensive. Every small detail requires contractors as well as noisy machinery. Waiting for the project could take a while, and you will have to endure the repairs which are underway. Luckily for you, there is a simple and inexpensive solution around the corner. If your patio already has a cover above it, all you need to add are a few amazing curtains. Unlike the typical curtains, ours are stronger, resistant to the outside elements, and better at protecting your furniture.
Most people ignore the idea of purchasing curtains or drapes for their patio. The truth is – our outdoor curtains are quicker to install than any fixed wall, cheaper, and great at protecting your privacy. Once everything is ready, you will be able to enjoy the weather while reading a good book or chatting with friends. If your home lies near a commercial area or a busy street, the outdoor curtains will keep your patio private.
Privacy is not the only benefit – our outdoor curtains will add a soft touch to your furniture. We will help you decorate the relaxation area. The curtain materials will bring comfort to your doorstep. Another significant benefit would be the incredible flexibility. You will be able to redo your backyard’s look by changing or switching the curtains.
The quality of the curtain material is key. The typical indoor fabrics might have a hard time outside the house. They might not be suited for the harsh weather conditions and will suffer from moisture, wind, mold, or mildew. The fabrics you need must be fade and water resistant. One example could be sunbrella. The material has a strong resistance against UV rays and moisture. Sunbrella is good at avoiding stains, mold, mildew, and rot. You have a rich choice of accessories to choose from such as grommets, rod pockets, sleeves, and more. Combining them with the right color will make your outside patio area all the more stylish.
Purchasing outdoor curtains will cost you only a fraction of what an exterior living area would. In addition to saving money, your new decoration will offer durability and flexibility. You will be able to change it depending on the scenery or remove it when not in use. The outside curtains or drapes will complement your existing patio, deck, swimming pool, pergola, or gazebo. The end result is simple – you will create a comfortable backyard room; perfect for relaxation and privacy. In recent years, this trend has been on the rise. More and more homeowners are making the decision to decorate their exterior living area with curtains.
The Difference Between Stick Built And Unitized Curtain Walls
We can separate curtain walls depending on their fabrication. There are two categories. The first one covers unitized curtain walls – they have large units which are first assembled and thereafter glazed. Next, the curtain walls will need to be attached to the façade. All vertical and horizontal modules stack together and form a holistic system. The installation time is shorter, and the labor costs are lower. The second type would be the stick systems. All frame verticals are connected one by one. A nice benefit in choosing this option would be the amazing flexibility. If your façade requires lower volumes of sticks, you can choose exactly as many as you need. Avoid piling up any excess materials.
Interior And Exterior Glazing Systems
You can choose between interior and exterior glazing. There are different advantages and disadvantages in both cases. Interior glazed systems are great for low-rise buildings, or applications with few or no interior obstructions. On the other hand, exterior glazed systems are better if you are installing them from the curtain wall’s exterior side.
Water-Managed And Pressure-Equalized Curtains
There is another way in classifying curtain walls: as pressure-equalized or water-managed. The pressure-equalized curtain walls will provide the strongest resistance to air and water infiltration. Water-managed systems aren’t as effective, but in second, not far behind.
Protection Against Low Temperatures
Back pans can be of great use for colder climates. The metal sheets use aluminum. In colder climates, it is important to install insulation between the back pan and exterior cladding. There is a specific advantage of using back pans – they offer a strong defense in case moisture tries to enter.
Architectural Design Standards
Curtain walls play a significant part in the design of buildings. Providing optimal performance is essential. To put it simply, the typical curtain wall system is thin and lightweight, unlike structural or fixed walls. The use of mullions helps the curtain wall attach itself to the building’s structural element. The result is a new façade will allow sunlight to enter the room while blocking other outside elements.
There are numerous advantages to curtain wall systems. Most materials are lightweight and inexpensive. Curtain walls will also help in reducing the electricity bills because their resistance to air and water infiltration will keep the room cool during summer and warm during winter. The installation period is short. The curtain walls have low maintenance costs and look amazing.
What Are Some Of The New Current Trends In Curtain Wall Systems?
In recent years, we had some fresh and ingenious ideas for curtain wall systems. The large expanse of glass wraps around a building like a shiny jewel. You can easily find such examples during the night when the interior of some buildings shines brightly. You can normally choose between three types of exterior facades. The first ones are Face-sealed curtain walls. They offer a stable and secure seal between the curtain wall framing and the building beyond it. The second choice is a water-managed system. It allows moisture to slowly drain through the curtain wall and thus prevent it from entering and damaging the building’s interior. The third option would be to use pressure-equalized systems which block all forces while keeping the building’s interior airtight. These systems use stainless steel mullions. Stainless steel has clean lines, strong resistance to corrosion, and easy maintenance. If you want to create a unique look, you can easily customize the mullions.
What Benefits Does Stainless Steel Have For Curtain Walls?
Laser fused stainless steel mullions have incredible accuracy and efficiency. Since the profiles are welded together with an almost invisible monolithic bead without any filler materials, the new shapes resemble exact squares. The smooth surface makes it easy for any material to fit. There are nearly endless ways you can customize your curtain walls thanks to laser fusion.
Laser fused stainless steel mullions have precise surfaces with sharp corners. They offer incredible durability and flexibility. There are serious advantages in using stainless over other metals because it has a strong resistance to the outside elements. You can recycle and repurpose it because of its sustainable nature.
