Pull The Curtain On Heating Costs
If high energy costs made you reluctant to heat up your farm shop this past winter, or if you just want to make your repair area more comfortable, consider adding a "curtain wall". You may also want to use a curtain wall to form a wash bay area, or to close up a doorway, to divide buildings, or for other applications.
TCT&A Industries, Champaign, Ill., has introduced tailor-made vinyl fabric curtains in virtually any size. They're easily rolled up or down to permit quick movement of equipment in or out. The curtain wall is made by laminating two layers of vinyl over a polyester web for greater strength. Brass grommets are installed every 18 in. along the top of the curtain for quick installation. The curtain may be screwed to ceiling joists, laced to a cable strung across the opening, or fastened in other appropriate ways. A 3/4 in. galvanized pipe is installed inside the bottom hem of the curtain to keep it from blowing or flopping.
Curtains are available in solid or mixed colors of blue, yellow, red, green, or maroon. Vertical panels, each 5 ft. wide, are heat sealed together to make up any desired width.
Each curtain is shipped complete with all the pulleys, ropes and hardware needed for installation and operation. Galvanized pipe for the curtain bottom is broken into sections short enough for shipment by United Parcel Service.
The curtains are priced at 35 cents per square ft. plus $3.50 per running foot for pipe and hardware. Thus, a 10 x 10 ft. curtain (100 square ft.) would cost $35, plus $35 for hardware.
