Repelling wind


Wind often causes a lot of worries in an industrial environment. Depending on the situation, wind must be kept out or brought in where necessary to provide ventilation. 

The sails stop the wind, and at the same time provide a slow constant renewal of air in the shed.

Get rid of wind

For every problem with wind in your site or shed, there is a suitable, tailor-made solution. The solution for keeping out the wind has the added advantage of keeping out rain and dust. 

The construction of sails made to ward off wind, is made according to your specific needs. You can also have the shielding personalized with your logo or company data.

Repelling wind with sails - advantages at a glance

A solution for every problem

Weeding out the wind with sails can offer a solution in many different situations: 

1. Draught-free storage shed 

Travelling in a storage shed can cause nuisance to the stored materials, goods and work. The sails block wind, dirt, dust and rain, while at the same time ensuring a slow and constant renewal of air in the warehouse.

2. Preventing windblown waste or dust on recycling site

When wind gets free play on a site or shed, dust can form. Difficult situations can arise if this causes inconvenience to the neighbourhood. You can prevent dust nuisance by placing a barrier of sails. This construction ensures that the wind is broken and dust can no longer be blown up.

Depending on the situation the barrier will come:

  • Round around the site
  • On one windward side of the site

3. Preventing temperature fluctuations due to wind on petrochemical site

Reactors used in the petrochemical industry are often exposed to different weather conditions. 

Chemical processes that take place in the reactors require a certain temperature at which the conversion rate of reagents to the final product is as ideal as possible. The reactors are therefore always brought to a temperature that is ideal for the chemical reaction that needs to take place in them.

Because these reactors have to deal with different weather conditions, temperature fluctuations can occur inside which have a negative impact on the processes.

You can counteract these temperature fluctuations by making sails in front of or around the installation.

Also a solution to other problems

The construction of sails to repel wind, also solves other problems. 

There's no rain coming in. Thanks to wind protection, the rain can no longer be absorbed by the wind, so you can get rid of rain splash zones in the storage facility or site.

Less dust. Due to the fact that wind is largely kept out, dust will be blown up much less. 

Custom made

1. Different combinations with sails possible

The warehouse or factory can be completely closed off with:

The sails stop the wind, while at the same time providing a slow constant renewal of air in the shed.

2. Different combinations of sail densities possible

In case of strong winds it is possible to combine different sail densities.

An example:

It is possible, for example, to make a fixed structure in which the first 2 metres have a sail density of 98% and above that, for example, 1 metre with a sail density of 90%. The two parts are welded together into one solid sail. 

3. Personalization of the shielding

It is possible to print the shield with:

  • Advertising your company (logo, slogan)
  • Photo or drawing
  • Your own design

Solution in the long term

Our structures with sails for wind protection have a long service life and require little maintenance. The sails are of high quality creating a long-term solution. In addition, the sails have standard fire class M2. 

Health benefits

By repelling wind, dust will also be less likely to be blown up. Dust reduction contributes to better working conditions. This both on a human and machine level.

In this way, personnel will be better protected against dust. In addition, the factory will remain dust-free for longer, which will reduce the maintenance of both machines and the factory.

Visual tight whole

The solutions discussed above provide a draught-free shed or site. In addition, the shed or site will remain clean for longer, because dust will be blown up less.

Moreover, the construction in sails provides a sleek whole, and you get a professional look.
