Portable weld curtain sets up, breaks down in seconds

October 14, 2008

A & A Mfg. has released a new portable weld curtain. The curtain sets up and breaks down in seconds, according to the company, and can be transported to new workstations with its roller wheels.

When extended, maximum height is 72.0 in. Width is 74.5 in. When retracted, the curtain stands only 4 in. high with a base of 80.5 in. long for storage.

Heavy-duty steel construction provides years of use in a manufacturing environment, the company reports. Suitable for GMAW, GTAW, and SMAW, the weld screen protects the user against the effects of near-UV and UV radiation emitted during arc welding. Aiding in the containment of sawdust and other light debris, the weld curtain also can be used for workcell separation, as a privacy wall, or to block distracting views.

The shade can be used in work environments with temperatures as low as 10 degrees and features a double-stitched pocket to secure the shade bar. Steel outriggers create a stable base that has a high-visibility safety finish.
