Beat the Heat

Heat is no joke. If you own or manage a business where the slightest degree can make a difference in your profits and/or how long you can store your products for, effective and efficient heat protection is a must. Whether your business needs to trap in heat or keep it out, the best and least expensive solution may be one you’ve never heard of.

QSD’s thermal insulated curtains are available in many different temperature differentials, are fully customizable, can be installed so that they are retractable/moveable, and are often less expensive than putting up a wall. And they’re something you can feel good about, knowing that adequate thermal insulation can not only help improve your bottom line by avoiding wasted heating and/or cooling costs, but by therefore having less of an environmental impact. If that wasn’t exciting enough, you’ll be thrilled to know that all the insulation in our products below are glass-free and made of 50 per cent recycled content.

The New York Times published a study in 2008 that determined a staggering 56 per cent of all energy in the US economy is wasted. The source calculated the main causes of energy waste, estimating that 20 per cent of all energy wasted stems from commercial and residential buildings, and another 20 per cent in industry or manufacturing. If the environmental impact isn’t enough to compel you to consider other options, think about your bottom line: energy waste is expensive.

Down with the Thickness

Our thermally-insulated curtains – like all of QSD’s products – are fully customizable. Different levels of thickness are available for your specific desired temperature differential. In addition, we can help you customize them for any space, from color and material, retractable or stationary, and so much more.
