Protecting employees is essential to any business. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires welding curtains be used to protect workers and others in the area from ultraviolet radiation, be noncombustible or flameproof, and must not restrict ventilation.

There are many risks to employees who do not use a welding curtain or screen. Short-term dangers include flash burns to the eyes, while long-term exposure to the ultraviolet radiation produced during welding can cause cancer. *

Randall Welding Curtains and Screens provide employees with a safe environment protected from grinding omissions, welding arcs, light sparking, and dust contaminants. 

Randall Welding Curtains can be permanently installed or portable, allowing employees to configure their work areas to suit the job at hand. Our Welding Curtains hang from a rod on rings while our Welding Screens are stretched across a metal or plastic frame with wheels that allow them to be moved easily.
