Create an Enclosed Space with Divider Curtains

Warehouse Divider Curtains

Warehouse curtains are popular due to their flexibility and cost savings in dividing areas of your customer’s operations. These curtains are strong and durable, allowing your customers to partition their warehouse as needed, without having to spend thousands of dollars on permanent dividers.

Many manufacturing and warehousing facilities use vinyl dividers to maintain privacy for sensitive operations. They also use them to cover less aesthetically pleasing areas of the building. Most importantly, however, these curtains are used to minimize workplace distraction. With all the different things going on in the typical warehouse or manufacturing plant, your customers are going to want a solution that keeps their employees on task. Whatever their reason, our divider curtains are made to fit your customers’ needs.

Paint Booth Divider Curtains

Paint booth divider curtains allow your customers to both separate and maximize their usable space. They are great for when your customers need to separate their work bays and provides much needed organization to any operation.

Using divider curtains can allow them to have a cohesive separation for paint booth preps, spray booths, paint shops, paint booth curtain walls, and more. This makes it easier to confine paint over spray, contaminants, dirt, and dust from other sections of their operation. This in turn allows your customers to consistently offer more quality services and products.

Our Solutions

Our paint booth and warehouse divider curtains are made with a 13 or 18 oz. flame retardant vinyl. They are available in combination with a clear PVC window that is also flame retardant. The bottom hem is manufactured so that chains can be sewn in to provide light wind resistance. Both materials meet California Fire Marshall (CFM) standards for flame resistance. Keep in mind that the clear materials are not meant for welding purposes. Our weldview material can be substituted if a welding application is required for your needs.

2018 Predictions for Industrial Textiles

Expectations for the U.S. industrial textile industry are high and we hope to see even further advancements and successes throughout 2018. Industrial textiles have become a more important part of the textile and apparel manufacturing sector over the past few years, and this is not forecast to change.

The wholesale industrial fabrics and textile products we distribute appeal to diverse markets, from automotive and marine to sports and recreational. As the U.S. boating industry continues to unveil innovations and experience growing recreational boat sales, the demand for reliable marine fabrics will grow too. As always, the sports industry remains strong, driven at least in part by an increasing safety-conscious American population. In turn, products such as athletic covers for gyms, martial arts, and soccer fields will be highly sought-after.

Mauritzon textiles are constructed with heavy-duty materials to withstand the toughest elements and environments. Safety will continue to be at the forefront of our minds in everything we craft and distribute in 2018 and beyond, along with ensuring we consistently provide superior service and materials to our customers.

The Best of Industrial Textile Products 2017

2018 is knocking on the door, and with that said we’re asking our audience, “what did you do this year that you can do better next year?” When it comes to industrial textiles and supplies, we’ve got your answer! We’re giving you the best of Mauritzon products 2017 (add them to your holiday last for 2018!).

In February, we kicked off 2017 with snow tarps as fresh as the inches on your front lawn. Our industrial tarps are good for construction, hardware, trucking, the supply chain and other similar sectors. Mauritzon’s snow tarps are reinforced and reliable premium products that are changing the way you deal with inclement weather. We warned that all snow tarps are not made equal! Available in two variants – Economy and Premium, Maurtizon tarps are:

  • Made of durable PVC coated polyester
  • Reinforced down the middle and especially along the sides with seat belt quality straps boasting break strengths of 6000-12,000 lbs.
  • Made for longevity with steel O-rings on ends of all webbing
  • To be used only on freshly fallen snow

Best of all, these durable investments keep their worth by saving time and money for our consumers!

In case you missed it, snow tarps aren’t the only kind of industrial tarps we supply. Diverter and drainage tarps are a must have for commercial roof leaks. If your roof system is compromised, a drainage tarp provides a quality short-term solution until a professional can arrive on site to do the necessary repairs. Varieties that we offer include: economical light duty, flame retardant, and anti-static vinyl. No matter which style you choose, rest assured that the right investment will give you the right set up for a leaky situation.

Time after time, one of our biggest sellers is our industrial awnings and hardware. Options include:

  • Awnshade: A smooth surface top, flexible front lit and/or back-lit awning that’s flame-retardant with proven durability and custom colors available 1000 minimum.
  • Recacril: Constructed with an acrylic coated surface, the Recacril® Acrylic Awning offers water resistance and fabric stability, with multiple colors that illuminate beautifully.
  • Awnmax®: Featuring patented antiwicking scrim, hard acrylic topcoats, and proven durability, Awnmax® awnings have unparalleled translucency while resisting bruises, marks, and dirt.
  • Sattler®: The Sattler® line of awnings includes high-quality fabrics designed for outdoor use and extreme durability, and the Firemaster®safety-assured flame-resistant awnings that offer extra protection and strength.

In the off-seasons, we have awnings for the marine industry, outdoor living, and cleaning products for all.

Come spring, we pitched our industrial equipment for athletic activities. Mauritzon industrial textiles feature a variety of uses from fields, gymnasiums, rings, and trainings, to batting practices, tennis practices, and more. These options reign superior.

And in November, we wrapped it up with some words of advice on this coming winter. Our industrial hardware is the best you will find to prep both your equipment and worksites.

In case we missed anything about the year in review, we’ve also included our best sellers feature from August.

We’d like to take a moment to thank our loyal customer base for staying in touch with us (and in use of us) throughout 2017! We wish you all a very happy holiday season and look forward to meeting your industrial textile needs in the new year.

The Best Ways to Keep Your Hardware in Shape this Winter

With winter months on the near horizon, it’s best to prep your equipment and worksites now—before the bad weather strikes. From snow to sleet, the coarse weather ahead will make it more difficult for maintenance workers to get to you should anything malfunction.

Planning Ahead

Instead of waiting for something to go wrong, take the right precautions now to ensure optimal performance on your equipment and site to get you through the roughest time of the year. This technique will help you to avoid troubles down the road.

As a wholesale manufacturer of industrial textile products and a distributor of hardware and findings, Mauritzon warrants durable products to withstand severe weather.

Why not step it up a notch?

A close inspection of your equipment and workspace as a whole is a way to avert tainted equipment come spring.

Hardware and Findings Maintenance

Listen to the advice of the experts—get your awning hardware, cargo restraints, and other tools prepped and ready to go.

Steps to take & issues to look for:

  • Check for worn parts
  • Tears
  • Other damages that have been inflicted throughout the previous year
  • Replace parts that have been affected before the weather gets bad

Inspections and replacements can apply to the majority of your supplies:

Other types of protection you can use to help:

  • Cargo restraints like sturdy tarp protectors or durable winches
  • Easy-to-insert hardware and webbing
  • Grommets
  • High-strength & reliable washers

If you’re in the marine industry, this will aid your boats and other fleet vehicles in severe winds, rain, sleet, etc.

We all want our gear as equipped as possible when the nicer weather reemerges next spring.

Lastly, inspect safety equipment and replace if needed.

Our quality setting tools provide simple ways to set and insert grommets and snaps, install common sense fasteners, and more—anything you need to make your transition into the change of seasons as easy as possible.

Recognizing National Manufacturing Day Friday, October 6th

National Manufacturing Day and Its Initiatives

There are few initiatives that have impacted the course of manufacturing and production in the United States like the National Manufacturing Day (NMD).

Started in 2012 to give the public a glimpse of modern manufacturing and to inspire the next generation of skilled workers, NMD has grown in scope and popularity with each subsequent iteration.

It is expected that in 2017 more than 600,000 individuals and companies will come together to celebrate the National Manufacturing Day on Friday, October 6th.

What breakthroughs will businesses achieve in terms of how the public views manufacturing and its contributions to the economy? How will the perception of students change and will they embrace S.T.E.M careers in hopes of a strong and stable future career path?

NMD may be officially designated as the first Friday of every October, but it influences the strategic decisions taken by the workers of tomorrow throughout the year and beyond.

The Impact of the Day

Over the last half decade, NMD initiatives have had a profound positive effect. 89% of people believe that they are now more aware of the myriad manufacturing opportunities available in their community. 84% of students are more convinced that manufacturing can provide them with stable, well-paying careers and benefits, and 64% are motivated to pursue them.

Many manufacturing companies industry-wide host “plant tours” in which they open their facility to potential employees offering them a sneak peek into the economy -boosting, exciting work that manufacturing entails. Some also organize workshops to focus on Skill Gap and its remedies. Others join forces with their peers and hold symposiums where breakthroughs in manufacturing are presented to their audience and the world.

So far, this year, 2,000+ events have already been registered and more are being published every day.

Mauritzon’s Innovations in the Industrial Textile Industry

Here at Mauritzon, we salute the National Manufacturing Day endeavors and express our support for the cause.

At our company, we seek skilled employees who are passionate about combining their interests for manufacturing with research in the industrial textile industry. This compound creates room for outstanding innovations like:

  • Various levels of toughness for different applications

Honoring National Safety Month: 5 Safety Product Must Haves

June is upon us, bringing with it the promise of warm weather, summer breaks and last, but certainly not least, National Safety Month.

Founded and organized by the National Safety Council, National Safety Month seeks to help companies in all sectors, but especially industrial, maintain and improve safety practices. At Mauritzon, we take safety seriously — not only during National Safety Month, but year round.

To help companies maintain optimal safety in their facilities, we work with a variety of industrial textiles to contribute to safety products, including:

1.         Beige Insul-Shield Heat Treated Fiberglass Fabrics: Extremely versatile, Insul-Shield Heat Treated Fiberglass Fabrics can be used for various applications, including insulation lagging and protective shields and garments. These safety fabrics are resistant to the majority of corrosive chemicals, including most acids (with the exclusion of hydrofluoric acid), alkalis, and solvents. They can also resist corrosive environments, including those with high temperatures.

2.        Welding Curtains: Welding is a potentially dangerous processes, posing burn and fire risks; Mauritzon supplies a variety of high-quality, flame-retardant welding curtains to help welders and others stay safe on the jobsite. Along with serving as welding curtains and enclosures, our curtains can be used as grinding shields, privacy dividers, dust or spray confinement solutions, and more.

3.        Welding Blankets: Welding blankets differ from welding curtains in that they are manufactured from fiberglass and coated fiberglass textiles, as opposed to 100% cotton or vinyl. They can be used in any application where a welding curtain can be used.

4.         Flame-Retardant Textiles: Like welding curtains and blankets, most of our other products are also flame retardant. If not, products can be customized to incorporate any of a range of flame-retardant textiles.

5.         303 Clear Vinyl Protective Cleaner: Equally as important as safety products, are the supplies to clean your materials and keep them high-functioning. 303 Clear Vinyl Protective Cleaner not only effectively cleans a range of materials — including vinyl, clear vinyl, Strataglass, and Eisenglass — but also helps to keep them in good working condition by protecting against the effects of UV radiation.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) works hard to make sure companies from all industries have the knowledge they need to keep their employees safe and healthy. Mauritzon is happy to support National Safety Month and is proud to offer reliable, high-quality products to help other companies and organizations do the same.

Follow our blog, Twitter, and LinkedIn to keep up to date with safety products and information, or contact Mauritzon today to learn more about how we can help keep your staff safe.
