Industrial curtains provide complete flexibility in separating work areas and are an ideal solution for particle and dust suppression. They are also ideal for exposed work environments where flexible or temporary weather protection is required.
Dust Suppression Curtains
Waterplex recently supplied 100 metres of transparent, strengthened industrial curtains for a major tunnel excavation project. The tunnel in one of Australia’s eastern seaboard cities was to remain open to public traffic during the excavation and widening process. The client required a large area of the tunnel to be safely separated from normal traffic so the excavation equipment and crews could work safely and without risk to the general public.
The industrial curtains were only to be used during excavation and because the excavation work was only being carried out at night. The curtains had to be designed and made in a way that enabled them to be quickly installed and removed minimising the excavation downtime each night. The Waterplex team worked closely with the client to meet all their requirements to enable the excavation work to be completed on time and within budget.
Tunnel Excavation Industrial Curtain Solution
The industrial curtains in this solution were 7m high with double reinforced welded sections for attachment to the tunnel roof. Each industrial curtain panel was also supplied with customised overlapping panels with secure attachments to connect with the next curtain panel and to provide effective dust suppression and allow efficient dust and air extraction from the tunnel environment.
