If you do not take precautions to prevent steel dust from settling on aluminum-intensive vehicle surfaces, galvanic corrosion will occur and weaken aluminum components. Steel dust that settles on aluminum exterior surfaces such as the hood, roof, or door panels will also cause galvanic corrosion that will damage your paint job.
The ProWoTech Body Repair Station features a curtain system that isolates aluminum work from nearby bays.

Aluminum dust is explosive. Fire safety claims of some curtain manufactures may not meet new, tougher protection standards required by OEM aluminum repair certification programs. The ProWoTech Body Repair Station is accepted by OEM certified collision repair facility programs.
The body repair station’s e-glass curtain meets fire retardation standard EN-13501-1, required by OEM aluminum repair certification programs worldwide. EN-13501-1 requires low-flammability, very limited smoke development, and no creation of burning droplets or particles. Other curtain brands may only meet less stringent safety limits, such as Underwriters Laboratory standard NFPA 90A-1993 (which the ProWoTech curtain exceeds).
The built-in viewing window features TTV-red-RW visor lamination that meets the DIN EN 17700 standard for eye protection for workers outside of the aluminum bay.
