Heavy-Duty Welding Curtains Protect Workers
Welding, cutting, and brazing are hazardous activities posing serious risks to your workers. Because of this, over half a million North American workers are at risk of injury from welding each year. Welding curtains make all the difference.
Ensuring your workers have the correct welding curtain or screen is extremely important.
The worker doing the welding is normally well protected, but other workers close to the welding are also at risk from:
- Welders flash or ‘arc eye’ from the welding arc
- Sparks and debris in the air
- Dangerous welding fumes
- Sharp and piercing welding noises
- Skin burns from hot welding flashes
The risks to surrounding workers are elevated when working within small or cramped work spaces.
Our welding curtains and screens are designed specifically to protect your workers from the above dangers, increasing their productivity, the number of days they can effectively work, and decreasing your risk of employee injuring claims!
Here at QSD, we provide you with a wide range of welding curtains that meet all welding and safety requirements.
Welding curtains and welding screens offer a safe, easy-to-install and effective solution for separating welding stations from other work areas.
QSD’s welding curtains and screens are available in multiple configurations to fit a variety of spaces and applications. With a welding curtain, you can help protect workers and the work area from the hazards associated with the welding process.
Our years of experience and enthusiasm for safety and protection go into every welding curtain that we make.
How Our Welding Curtains & Screens Protect Your Workers
Here are five benefits to having a welding curtain or screen in your workplace:
- Creates Specific Welding Area
Having a designated area for welding is your fist step of protection. By clearly marking where welding takes place, workers will know to take caution close to that area due to the increased risk hazard.
- Reduces Noise
Welding creates a very high level of noise. While the welder is normally wearing ear plugs other workers close by are also at risk. Properly positioned welding curtains and screens will contain the noise from welding protecting workers near the welding.
- Controls Temperatures
Welding can produce temperatures of up to 3,500°C. While welders always wear the appropriate clothing, other workers on site may not. Temperatures that high can burn bare skin too close to it. A welding curtain will protect workers by containing those high temperatures.
- Contains Welding Fumes
Fusing metal together can often let off nasty and dangerous fumes. A welding curtain will be able to contain those fumes, and combined with the correct ventilation will keep everyone in the work environment safe.
- Shield Workers from Debris
Sparks and hot metal deposits can fly from the welding process, creating a serious health risk to all other workers on the work site. A welding screen or curtain will contain that debris keeping all your employee’s safe.
