How to Divide Warehouse Space with Temporary Curtain Walls
Change is constant in warehouse environments – changing products, changing demands, changing tenants and layouts. With these changes often comes the need to divide the warehouse space. Permanent, hard walls can do the job, but they aren’t temporary or movable, resulting in significant long-term challenges. That is why many warehouse managers choose to use industrial curtain walls to partition their spaces.
Warehouse curtain walls offer flexibility, which comes from their construction. Curtain walls are modular, flexible panels attached using hook and loop fasteners. This simple design allows industrial curtain partitions to be custom-designed for each application– length and height, stationary or sliding, insulated or non-insulated, fitted with doors and vision panels, or not – while offering the opportunity to reconfigure or relocate a warehouse wall in the future. This makes a movable warehouse wall ideal for changes you might encounter.
As a warehouse manager, you have just been informed that you will need to store a new product that requires a conditioned space. You choose to use Zoneworks curtains and dividers to create a new area in the warehouse with temperature control. The insulated curtain walls arrive, and installation takes a few days, with no dusty mess or facility shutdown. You now have the space for this new product and feel great knowing that these temporary curtain walls can be changed when the next project is announced.
There is a big push to cut energy costs in the warehouse, and you know immediately that the open loading dock is the place to start. You understand the positive impact that separating the loading dock area from the rest of the facility would have, so you contact your local Rite-Hite rep. Working together, you order a loading dock enclosure that is installed and fitted with three high-speed doors for fast, easy access. The results are felt immediately by the workers in the warehouse and, more importantly, by the accountants in the front office.
Changing Tenants and Layouts
Suppose you are a warehouse owner, and a potential tenant is interested in your facility. The only challenge is they have special conditions, which will require you to install walls. Oh, and it needs to happen in the next three months. After considering the cost and time required to build a traditional hard wall, you learn of temporary industrial curtain partitions. You discover that curtain walls can save you time and money while accomplishing your objectives, so you move forward with this plan. The warehouse partition walls are installed weeks later, and the new tenant stops in to check things out. They love the new walls and are impressed with how you met their tight requirements.
These scenarios represent real-life warehouse challenges where temporary curtain walls could be used as a simple and affordable solution. The flexible, modular construction of Zoneworks industrial curtain walls offers many benefits that make them ideal for warehouse spaces. So, embrace the changes because now you know the solution to get the job done.
