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.

If you’re looking to offer your customers divider curtains this season, call us today at (773) 235-6000 and one of our excellent representatives can help you find what you’re looking for!

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.

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.

Mauritzon Supports National Safety Month

National Safety Month is observed every June in the United States. National Safety Month 2016 in wordingIt’s sponsored by the National Safety Council (NSC) with the motto: SafeForLife. Each week supports a different theme, such as Stand Ready to Respond, Be Healthy, Watch Out for Dangers, and Share Roads Safely. The NSC offers materials that are easily downloadable for each topic. The overall goal of the NSC is to reduce the leading causes of accidents and death on the job, in homes, on the road, and within communities.

Although training is a big part of safety, there are also numerous products that can help to reduce injuries and death. Textiles are an important part of safety in many workplaces. For example, flame-retardant vinyl laminated polyester fabrics can be used for tarpaulins, gym floor covers, divider curtains, and other industrial and general purpose covers. This type of textile can be successfully used in homes, schools, and in the workplace.

Another great flame-retardant textile is the 745 FR PV-coated membrane which provides a strong polyester base fabric that’s combined with a thick, knife-coated PVC layer for more heavy duty applications such as light structures, canopies, fixed awnings, tents, and partition curtains.

According to the American Chemistry Council, “Flame retardants are a key component in reducing the devastating impact of fires on people, property and the environment.” Textiles that are flame resistant or fire retardant help to stop fires, prevent fires from spreading, and keep damage from fires to a minimum. One product that can help to provide protection from fire and water is the Sattler – Firemaster Plus. This flame resistant mod-acrylic fabric is used as awning fabric and comes in a variety of colors.

Should your home or business need something unique, Mauritzon offers Flame and Water Resistant Fabric to create the ideal product for your needs. Fire Retardant Canvas Tarpaulins come in a wide range of sizes from 4’ x 4’ to 30’ x 30’ and Mauritzon also offers custom sizes should the pre-sized tarpaulins not fit your needs.

When it comes to textile products that can help your home or business stay safe, look no further than Mauritzon. Not only does Mauritzon promote fire and water safety, but we offer many products that can keep your family, friends, and staff safe, whether at home or on the job.
