For those who are unable to close during
refurbishments, they are able to remain as
profitable as possible.
When working on a commercial project it is
common for multiple works to be taking place
at the same time, often within close proximity.
Sectioning-off work areas will protect the newly
decorated areas from other ongoing works.
High-energy tools and electric saws can produce
a lot of dust in a very short amount of time.
The majority of dust generated by renovation
activity has the ability to absorb moisture and can
subsequently disperse it wherever the flecks settle.
Without a dust control strategy in place, the ultrafine
particles – that can be up to 70,000 times
thinner than a human hair – have the potential to
cause costly damage to the surrounding and newly
Dust barrier solutions are an ideal answer to
allowing all works to continue simultaneously and
expedite the completion of the project.
Specialist dust barrier systems are an easy
alternative to the traditional taping of plastic
sheeting, and look much more professional too.
The route of taping plastic sheeting to walls can
cause damage while also being time consuming,
particularly if the barriers need to be set up,
moved or deconstructed on a daily basis.
Quickly and efficiently
Systems which require no tape can save hours of lost
time, this allows projects to be completed quickly
and efficiently – meaning business owners can get
their business back to a normal routine sooner. In
addition, dust barrier systems that do not require the
use of tape ensure limited to no damage or marks
are left behind on walls, ceilings or floors – avoiding
any future remedial work and reducing time spent
cleaning once work is complete.
When undergoing renovations, a key concern
from business owners is the safety of staff and
customers. When used as part of an overall safety
strategy, dust barriers can help to keep worksites
boundaries clean and clear – reducing the risk of
access by non-workers to potential hazards.
It’s important to identify systems that do not
require the use of ladders. Specialist systems
which feature spring-loaded poles create a
telescoping action which allows the professional
contractor to simply attach the reusable plastic,
extend the pole and set it up.
With no ladders required in the set-up process,
the system minimises safety risks on-site and
makes it easy for just one person to set up a dust
barrier in minutes.
Working on any commercial renovation where
the business must remain open and accessible
to the public can be especially tricky. The use of
dust barrier systems to section-off certain areas
can help to keep work areas tidy, tools can be kept
out of the way of day-to-day business activity –
helping to prevent accidents caused from slips and
trips. Additionally, this buffer zone which clearly
defines areas to deter passers-by from entering
areas they should not be in.
Without a professional dust barrier system, the
amount of time it takes for a contractor to install
and take down makeshift barriers with tape and
plastic can result in significant expense. When
undertaking any renovations on a commercial
or multi-trade location, specialist dust barrier
systems provide an ideal solution to help business
owners maintain regular operations.
