Are Pressurized Walls Safe?

Are Pressurized Walls Safe?

For those who are considering whether pressurized walls are the right choice for their residence or business, safety is one of the factors that often comes up. On the surface, a pressurized wall may seem to have obvious safety issues because it is not permanent and is held in place by simple pressure and not any nails, glue, or other adhesive.

However, the safety record of pressurized walls when properly placed is quite good which means that you should feel confidence if you choose the right company to install the wall. As with any product, its quality depends on the materials used and the installation process that puts it in place.

How Pressurized Walls Work

As the name implies, the walls are held in place by pressure that is exerted from the wall itself to the surrounding walls, floor, and ceiling. Because no nails or adhesives are used, the pressurized walls leave no marks which means that when removed, the room will retain its previous condition without any permanent marking or indication that a wall had been in place.

Because they do not cause any damage to the existing structure, this has allowed pressurized walls to be used in apartment complexes that otherwise would not allow them. Once the wall is ready to be removed, the pressure is released, and the wall taken down. There is some general cleaning to remove any dust, dirt, or other debris that might have built up around where the wall once stood, but otherwise there is no indication that a wall has been there.

Safety Factor

Because no permanent fasteners, nails, adhesives, or other connectors are used, there are some who believe that pressurized walls are subject to being tipped over and represent a safety hazard. However, the pressure itself keeps the wall in place and it would take considerable force to even move the wall, much less tip it over.

The safety record of pressurized walls demonstrates that when they are placed by a reputable company, they are quite safe and will withstand the normal impacts that permanent walls endure. While pressurized walls may not quite be as sturdy compared to the permanent walls that are fixed in place inside your apartment, home, or business, they are quite strong and will hold up well even when accidentally impacted.

This means that you can even hang pictures or light materials on the wall without worry about compromising their stability. When properly installed, the seamless versions will blend in beautifully with the rest of your residence or business. Even the non-seamless versions still provide a strong safety factor which means that you can trust them to stand for years with minimal maintenance.

If you are looking to set up a new room inside your residence or business, putting up a pressurized wall will provide the privacy and security you want without compromising safety. You will need to hire the right company that has a well-established reputation for their service and backs it up with a warranty.
