Benefits of Temporary Barrier Walls in Construction

Construction Software

Temporary Barrier Walls are used at construction sites in institutional, healthcare, industrial or commercial settings to manage the cons truction dust and debris. Not only do they contain dust and debris, but can also hide areas, isolate dust, and cordon off the other areas of a facility thus making them useful for offices, construction sites, hospitals, stores, etc.

These systems are designed to be highly reusable and durable and can be set up quickly and easily requiring less labour to improve the profitability of the project. Construction and renovation projects in commercial, healthcare and industrial settings have challenges including keeping off the, debris, dust, odor, contaminants, and other mess, preserving the workspace flow, and maintaining a professional look.

Temporary barrier walls are used to overcome these challenges, separating a construction site producing debris, dust, odor, and contaminants, from the rest of business operations to allow them to continue uninterrupted. They can be used during remodeling, concrete cutting, scarifying, reflooring, tenant improvements, installation of new equipment, restoration, and reparation projects.

Temporary barrier walls are poly-engineered film stretching from floor to ceiling, thus creating a studless wall without framing. This prevents dust and debris from spreading, confines workers to their area, keeps employees safe, and prevents the spread of any unwanted contaminants or odors as follows.

1. Dust and Debris Containment

Dust and debris containment is of significant importance in construction or remodeling projects. Often, dirty and dust fills the air in construction making them harmful for construction workers. The dust and debris created during construction projects can also spread beyond the construction site into clean areas during renovations or expansions of existing facilities. Dust carries bacteria posing serious health risks in all environments, including health facilities. Hence dust control is essential for protecting the wellness and health of all patients, staff members, and visitors during renovation or construction work.

Temporary Barrier Walls provide airtight containment, construction and renovation in any industry including healthcare facilities, retail stores, restaurants, data centers, telecom, laboratories, and academic institutions. They also provide protection from drywall dust created from finishing walls during installation, and the dust or debris created by their removal.

2. Maintaining Rigid Safety Standards & Security:

Temporary barrier wall systems maintain appearances during renovation work, keep clean and cleanable walls, and protect the building occupants from dangerous dust and debris in facilities that operate round the clock. Patients, caregivers, staff and visitors are exposed to risks even during off hours work in health facilities and old age homes. Hence, temporary barrier walls are engineered and designed as per critical safety standards. They improve worker safety and reduce your construction project’s environmental impact.

3. Minimize Disruptions in Day-to-Day Business:

Facilities providing essential services cannot be interrupted during renovations or remodeling. Hospitals cannot stop treating patients, nor can other clients allow their daily business and production to be interrupted during construction and renovation projects, because shutdowns result in tremendous losses. To continue the workflow with minimal disruptions, Temporary Barrier Walls can be customized to protect your particular environment without such hassles.

4. Meet the Deadlines

Projects generally get prolonged due to material delays, errors in shipment, and other factors that are unexpected and not in your control. In such cases, construction of a drywall can only hold up a project and lead to further delay. This can be avoided with temporary barrier walls or poly-engineered film which can be installed within a few hours. Avoiding labor costs and drywall removal time allows for faster project completion.

5. Within Your Budget:

Installing temporary barrier walls or poly-engineered film is a budget-friendly option allowing you to reduce the labor costs that may be incurred while constructing dry walls. These do not require storage and are an easy, quick, and cost-effective solution for containment. Hence, installing temporary barrier walls or poly-engineered film save installation labor costs and help you start the primary construction process sooner. They save HVAC and general clean-up costs and reduce the liability and costs of replacing merchandise of adjacent businesses damaged by dust, when dry walls are installed or removed.

Being 100% reusable, they eliminate storage, warehousing, and disposal costs since dumpster and landfill fees incurred due to destruction of dry walls are avoided. Their reusability eliminates the transportation, energy, and other costs associated with studs, drywall, mud, and paint manufacturing. As the project progresses through the construction phases, there is no need to destroy and completely rebuild additional barriers.

6. Reduction of Noise

The noise created during construction and renovation projects due to the tools and equipment and voices of construction workers can disturb the employees working in the vicinity of the construction site. Temporary wall barriers can reduce the noise pollution in the rest of the facility thus creating a calmer, quieter, and more comfortable environment. Installing temporary wall barriers is noiseless, allowing work to continue unhindered during business hours, rather than paying overtime to workers. Good quality reusable temporary barrier walls can reduce renovation noise by half.

7. Management of traffic:

Managing the flow of people around a construction zone can be a challenge. Temporary wall barriers direct people through the facility, and cordon off construction areas to visitors and non-workers thus improving safety, providing a better experience, helping construction workers to know where they need to go, and in what areas the work is in progress. This exposes them to lesser dust and debris during the ongoing work. They also allow more efficient repositioning and configuration of walls through various phases of the project.


Thus, the benefits of temporary construction barriers are many and vary. They are not only essential for building and worker safety, but also give you a better project outcome.
