Global Finishing Solutions’ (GFS) curtain walls and dividers are designed for separating and maximizing usable shop space. These retractable curtain walls can be used for a variety of applications, including dust containment, limited painting, sanding, grinding, welding and woodworking.

GFS says this product is a cost-effective solution for separating work areas, while offering the flexibility of a temporary, retractable barrier. The curtain walls are manufactured to withstand harsh industrial environments with PVC steel-scrim vinyl, designed to be 84 percent stronger than industry-standard vinyl. The curtains come standard with two window options that enable view of workers while protecting against paint overspray, dirt, dust, grinding sparks or harmful UV rays.

The interior seams of the walls are electronically welded with RF bar sealers, which heat and bond the vinyl and PVC panels for a long-lasting hold. Outer hems on the curtain are sewn with a heavy-duty, double lockstitched nylon thread. To stabilize against drafts, a galvanized chain is inserted into the four-inch bottom pocket of the curtain. All materials meet NFPA 701 for fire retardancy.
