Flexiscreen is a temporary floor-to-ceiling building and dust screen used to contain dust during construction, flooring, installation and extension works within live manufacturing, production and warehouse environments. Used for both internal and external applications, this versatile screening system is a robust alternative to traditional scaffold sheeting methods.
Flexiscreen is a superior temporary building and dust screen which is fast, easy and clean to install and suitable for both short and long term projects. During phased works it can be moved, reconfigured and extended if required.
Designed and installed to suit any height and width of building (subject to survey), its rapid installation process means disruption in any environment is minimised to maintain existing production schedules.
The unique v-overlap system and tight seal around ducts, pipes, steel work and at ceiling level ensures that Flexiscreen offers an over 99% dust tight seal.
The suspended panel-based system requires no additional supporting frame work as it is suspended from the existing building structure, and can be installed on an angle to fit the profile of the building and accommodate tight gaps. Taking up minimal floor space, it can easily be installed in tight spaces and around existing equipment in manufacturing and production environments.
Choose from a range of materials and access options to suit the needs of the project (i.e antifungal materials or fire rated) or environment. Wind load calculations and designs are available for external walls or high wind load areas.
- Screen off production line installations to prevent cross contamination in a live manufacturing facility – including in food manufacturing
- Dust containment during flooring and drainage works
- Create an enclosure around areas where the roof needs to be removed, for temperature and contamination prevention
- Internal relocatable screen to allow for phased openings in large buildings, typically large warehouses
- Manage temperature and draughts during floor curing
- Temporary external walls for weather protection during extension and construction projects

What are your lead times?
Due to the bespoke nature of our products lead times vary. However, because we manage our own in-house contracts team, we are able to provide you with an accurate and up to date lead time at point of enquiry.
How do I establish if my building structure can support your system?
Westgate provide full design support and system specific calculations that can be used to establish this.
Where are your products manufactured?
Our products are manufactured and quality controlled in the UK.
How do I overcome wind load requirements?
We evaluate site specific wind load requirements as part of the design process. Where high wind loads are an issue additional features (e.g. wind load straps) can be built in to the design.
Does the system have to be battened to the floor?
No, we can provide a number of fixing options for your building screen solution. Please contact us for full details.
