These days, within the vehicle manufacturing industry, it’s pretty common to have all processes under one roof. For example, fabrication, assembly, storage and inspection areas can all coexist in the same facility. Whilst this can be the most cost-effective way to operate, especially with the UK’s lack of available warehouse space, it can mean that effective and adaptable segregation is a need for many businesses.
Westgate’s Flexiwall solution is the perfect product to use when segregating fabrication areas from assembly areas.
It can be designed to fit any size and shape of building and will easily install around existing ducts and pipework, so the result is a dust tight seal that is over 99% effective. This means dust, fumes and dirt will not make their way to other parts of the facility once the Flexiwall partition is in place. You can therefore keep the assembly processes free from any dust and dirt and ensure all finished products are of the highest quality control.
Having adequate segregation to prevent transfer of dust and dirt also means fewer cleaning requirements for finished products (and just generally elsewhere in the facility) which is a great time and cost-saver for any business.
Flexiwall is the leading product for segregating areas for dust and contamination control, as it carries a number of unique benefits when compared to more traditional structural partitions.
Key benefits of Flexiwall include:
- Installs to any height and length and is very cost effective in tall buildings and across large spans
- No mess, quick/easy installation reducing downtime and clean up costs
- Minimal floor space required preventing the need to change existing floor plans or move equipment
- Fire rated material options
- Easily reconfigured, removed or relocated without lasting damage
- Especially suited to heavy environments due to impact absorbing properties
