Construction Dust Barriers
Is your facility or home undergoing or about to undergo a renovation, remodeling, or construction? Prevent dust, debris, and odors from contaminating already constructed parts of the workplace and provide a safe space with construction dust barriers!
Why do you need a construction dust barrier?
Containing dust during construction is an important measure to ensure effective installation and safety. Nevertheless, there's a lot more to consider during a construction or renovation project e.g., noise, ventilation, fire safety, and vibrations.
There are several ways to go about dust containment ranging from protecting your walls and floors or completely isolating a particular section of the facility. All of this depends on how large the workplace is going to be, how long the construction is likely to last, and the magnitude of the construction.
What are the ideal materials for construction dust barriers?
Generally, usage of polycarbonate or polyethylene sheet or poly film which can serve as a temporary wall is usually employed because of its versatility and durability.
Factors to consider to ensure containment of construction dust
Regardless of the magnitude of the construction, there are some steps to ensure the proper containment of airborne particles. These are:
Health and safety management
Before construction can commence, a health and safety management system that addresses the implications and the control measures of the construction involved should be generated to be on the safe side.
Determine the size of the workspace
Determine how large the workspace would be and then map it out. This lets you know just how much construction dust barriers you need.
Isolating the work zone and restricting the areas to authorized persons is important. It is also a safety measure.
Ensuring proper ventilation in the workspace.
While closing off work areas protects the rest of the space outside, proper ventilation prevents the exposure of construction workers to dust and contaminating particles in the air.
Construction dust barrier options
Several materials can be used as construction dust barriers. These options include:
These construction dust barriers are effective for confining a large space and help keep dust completely in or out. These walls can be installed almost anywhere, and they run from ceiling to the floor. Poly films are usually used as temporary walls.
This always comes in handy, no matter the size of the construction and it can always be customized to fit respective needs. There's a variety of suspended ceilings, but be sure to choose ones equipped with a fire retardant.
Temporary floor covers
This is another measure to be taken. It's common knowledge that the floor is the most affected as it receives most debris from the construction. Using the proper flooring materials that are puncture resistant and fire retardant are your best bet and will help you steer clear of costly repairs.
