The Importance of Plastic Door Curtains

Why Are Plastic Door Curtains So Important?

Running a warehouse may seem like an easy task to somebody on the outside, but in reality, it is quite complex. This is something that we, as a plastic door curtains supplier, know only too well. For example, consider the issue of how to dress doorways in a warehouse environment. You may think that choosing a door curtain would be an easy task. However, there are a wide variety of doors and PVC door curtains on the market and an equally large number of suppliers, all offering different levels of service. Making the wrong decision in this area could cost your business precious time and money, which makes choosing the correct curtain hugely important.

The best thing a warehouse owner can do is deal with a company who supply PVC strip rolls directly - such as ourselves. We have tried to make our website as easy and clear as possible for our customers. For your convenience we have included an online PVC door curtain calculator and a brief explanation of the specific benefits of the different types of PVC strips that we offer. We know that it can be quite challenging to make your final decision, but we are always more than happy to help. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call or drop us an email, and we will happily help you out.

Once you have decided on the plastic door curtains that you would like to purchase, you need to consider whether their cost effectiveness is increased or decreased by health and safety issues and the issue of maintenance. Health and safety issues tend to be things such as, impact from a forklift truck, or damage caused by external weather, such as strong winds. Truck impact on doors is, unfortunately, a huge issue for the warehouse industry in general, which is why we have created our Double-Ribbed Vehicle Access PVC Door Curtains. These curtains are specially designed to endure the constant through flow of large vehicles, such as forklift trucks. For added protection, you may want to consider adding protective posts to the area as well.

On a busy site, our double-ribbed curtains will be used constantly throughout the duration of the day, and so keeping them maintained is really important. There is a lack of capital available to invest in doors these days, and so you need to do all that you can to ensure that your PVC strips last as long as possible. One of the most important things to remember with regards to this, is to choose the right strip curtain for the job in the first place. For example, choose anti-static strips for a data centre to reduce the risk of static charge, or choose polar grade strip curtains for food storage facilities to ensure that they can withstand temperatures of up to minus 40. Size is important as well. For example, you don’t want to put wide PVC strips across a doorway of office, as people would find it hard to enter and exit. In trying to force their way through, they may damage the strips.

One of the best ways to ensure that you are looking after your plastic door curtains, is to ensure that they are kept clean. We have had customers in the past who have come back to us with what they thought were scratched curtains, when they were in fact just dirty. Your PVC strips are working hard for you on a daily basis, keeping pollutants and hazards out of your work place, so it is no wonder they need a good clean every now and again. This will also help to prolong there life too.

If this sounds like a lot to handle, then do not worry, we can help you out! We offer a maintenance service covering the cleaning and replacement of strips, as we believe this is an important part of our customer service values.
