The Curtain-Wall Story
Invented on the Job by a Contractor
The Curtain-Wall is manufactured in the USA by ToolLab, Inc. We are a family owned business that is committed to delivering value to our customers.
History of the Curtain-Wall System
After nineteen years as a remodeling contractor Charles Melino Sr. was awarded the very first U.S. patent for a temporary dust barrier for use on remodeling job sites. He developed the Curtain-Wall to solve the problem of construction dust spreading through his customers homes and businesses. The customers loved it! When other contractors saw what he was using they wanted one for themselves, and that's how the company began.
Today, our high quality, easy-to-use system has become standard equipment for hospitals, hotels, laboratories, construction companies and maintenance crews everywhere. Staying true to our roots, we test and develop all of our products under real working conditions.
We Love Lean Manufacturing
In January of 2013 we adopted Lean Manufacturing, a system developed by Toyota Motor Corporation.
At its core lean is about seeing waste in a process and eliminating it.
Every employee (and owners) begins each day by cleaning and making an improvement to our processes.
This is only the first year of our "lean" journey but we've already made major improvements. Our manufacturing has become more efficient and quality has increased, production floors are so clean you could sit down and have a picnic on them and everyone at the company is happier.
The greatest benefit of our lean practices is... our customers get better products and service. This happens naturally because they are not paying for non-value adding wasteful processes. Lean is a journey with no end, because there is no end to the waste that can be eliminated in a process or a company.
We are so confident with the quality of these products that we offer a
100% satisfaction guarantee.
If you haven't tried Curtain-Wall we promise you're gonna Love it!
