Flexiwall for dust control
Company: Terex Equipment
Overview: Partition to separate dusty fabrication and clean assembly areas
Terex Equipment Ltd, part of Volvo Group’s Construction Equipment division, is dedicated to pioneering machines that withstand the test of time, drawing on over 60 years of expertise to create heavy duty, durable machines that offer a productive work shift, with minimum downtime and maximum return on investment.
Segregation was required at their facility to separate fabrication and assembly areas. By partitioning off the welding and grinding process producing dirt and fumes, the assembly area and finished products would remain clean.
Having used Westgate Global previously (a 20 year old Flexiwall that is still in use), Terex called on Westgate Global to divide another area using Flexiwall, a unique fabric floor-to-ceiling partition that contains dust and odours. Additionally, by using a fire resistant glass-cloth material (FP560PU), fire egress distances were reduced, ensuring compliance with local building control and insurers requirements.
