Benefits of a predesigned and prefabricated temporary dust screen

Finding cost effective dust containment solutions for essential project, refurbishment, extension or civil works in factory and warehouse environments is a big undertaking for many companies. The lower the cost the less effective the dust containment, and for many sectors including those in food, pharmaceutical or vehicle the risk of any dust contamination during such works is unimaginable.

So it makes sense that temporary dust screens which guarantee an effective dust tight seal, yet remain cost effective are constantly sought after.

Westgate’s bespoke designed and manufactured Flexiscreen is a market leading temporary dust screen, which has been used on over 100 projects in the last 24 months.

Despite Flexiscreen having a slightly longer turnaround time than alternative solutions such as scaffold sheet, there are many benefits to using this solution over these other more traditional off the shelf DIY methods.

1. Each Flexiscreen takes into account the customers structural, wind load, aesthetic and containment requirements and in order to achieve this a full site survey is carried out. After which a bespoke designed screen is manufactured and installed.

2. To be installed this fabric screen uses the existing steel work within the building with no requirement for additional supporting frames such as scaffolding. This means, although initially there is a slightly longer lead time, it saves time on-site. From our experience, quicker installations are important to most high production areas as they need to manage downtime effectively. This also means that for longer projects (1 month+) there are no ongoing and expensive scaffold hire charges, making Flexiscreen more cost effective.

3. Due to Flexiscreen being predesigned and prefabricated to the exact requirements of the building, the installed product creates a better dust tight seal, both at high level and around any existing penerations (over 99%). There is also less fabrication required on site causing minimum disruption for the customer and less chance of components falling into close by production areas.

4. Materials used in the solution are much more robust and can absorb mild impact better than thinner scaffold sheeting.

5. A quality, well presented screen is important for some businesses as they must undergo customer visits and audits, with Flexiscreen we take this into account ensuring that our customers are confident in showing their customers around site.
