Why Use a Strip Door
Vinyl strip doors are one of the most basic and economical ways to separate two spaces. Often referred to as PVC Strip Doors or Strip Curtains, they are made up of overlapping strips of clear or tinted flexible PVC plastic. Strip Curtains are ideal for improving environmental conditions such as heating, cooling and moisture control, which can reduce energy use and increase comfort. Strip doors also protect against noise, wind and dirt, which can protect sensitive supplies and equipment.
One of the most common applications for PVC Strip Doors is as a secondary barrier where the main door will be left open for some time to improve workflow. By eliminating repeated opening and closing of the main door, traffic flow improves, speeding up the movement of personnel and materials. Common examples include overhead loading dock doors, walk in freezers and walk in coolers. Freezer curtains or refrigerator curtains can also help reduce heater wear, decrease filter maintenance and lessen coil icing. In retail and grocery settings, Reach Through Strip Doors are utilized on reach in coolers, helping to reduce energy use, improve the shelf life of refrigerated products and increase shopper comfort. Made of clear PVC with no overlap, customers can easily see items and quickly reach through the vinyl strips to select their items.
PVC Strip curtains are easy to install, maintain and (if necessary) repair or replace. They are extremely versatile and can be used for a wide range of applications.
