We were approached by the company which moulds hulls and superstructures for the next generation of lifeboats. They needed insulation to block heat loss from their curing ovens.
The company currently used 6m long, heavy insulation panels. Moving the panels was time-consuming and potentially dangerous. We developed a thermal curtain using a reflective aluminiumised cloth with a glass-fibre infill. The curtain is lightweight and easily moveable.
The curtain is an efficient insulation product, reducing the heat loss from the curing ovens. This means faster heating times, which saves the company time and money. The curtain can also be rolled away when the oven structure is being moved over the moulds, improving safety in the workshop.
