Strip curtains are called many different names such as strip doors, vinyl strips or PVC strips. These devices are an inexpensive way to separate two spaces with a physical barrier. There are many advantages to utilizing strip curtains over more conventional methods for certain applications. Some of which are,
- Improved traffic flow,
- Reduced wind and dust
- Reduced insects and birds in the area
- Reduced climate control energy costs
- Increased natural light
- Noise isolation
Because of their simple design strip curtains are low maintenance cost effective and reliable. In many instances the initial cost is quickly offset in reduced energy cost. This is especially true when used in applications where coolers and freezers are present. Because a strip door closes automatically it effortlessly keeps two spaces separated. This can cut energy loss by as much as 80% when compared to a conventional door that is left open. When installed in a application where noise isolation is important you can see a reduction in noise of up to 16 decibels. Because strip curtains are typically see through they are often safer than traditional doors since employees can easily see what is on the other side before proceeding through the opening. Another advantage to the clear design is when used in an application that separates interior from exterior, natural light is allowed to enter the interior space. As you can see Strip doors are very popular in many commercial and industrial applications.
