Four Reasons You Should Install Industrial Door Plastic Curtains

Many businesses are already reaping the benefits of installing door plastic curtains as a way of economically separating two spaces, improving traffic flow within their warehouse environment, and providing them with protection against pollutants such as dust, insects and noise. As you can see, there is a multitude of reasons why purchasing a strip curtain kit could be a boon for your business, so let's take a closer look at these benefits:

#1 Cost Effective Energy Control

Strip curtains are a well-proven way for commercial enterprises to help prevent temperature fluctuation in a controlled temperature environment such as a cold store or air-conditioned building. The PVC strip door curtains will act as a barrier to heat loss when a door is opened or closed, while still allowing easy access for pedestrians and vehicles such as forklift trucks. When plastic strip is used in the doorway of walk-in fridges, it keeps the temperature more stable, thus preventing spoilage of consumable goods, reducing the amount of frost build-up on refrigerator coils and also a reduction in the amount of wear and tear on the associated compressors, motors and switches. All in all, the use of energy saving plastic strip will improve your energy efficiency by maintaining better temperature control throughout your building.

#2 Noise Isolation

Being subjected to loud noise at work can damage employees’ hearing, and so the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has noise reduction guidelines in place to reduce the impact of this. You can quickly reduce noise in the workplace with the use of high-quality PVC plastic strip curtains - whether it be as a separation of workplaces and loading docks from the rest of the business, or at a retail store entry to keep the noise of passing traffic out of the store.

#3 Provision of Bird and Insect Control

One of the main benefits of door curtains is that they offer a barrier against birds, fly insects, and other pests which may try and enter your business premises, while still allowing for light and fresh air to flow throughout. Vermin can be a big problem for businesses in the food sector or other industries where the stock is left uncovered if a door is left open after a person or vehicle has entered the building, and so a standard PVC door curtain will provide a cost-effective extra layer of protection.

#4 Restriction of Entry of Air Pollutants

As well as there being legislation around noise pollution, there is also legislation around air pollution in the workplace, such as dust, fumes and smoke. Door plastic curtains will not only help prevent the movement of such pollutants within the workspace by covering door openings of any size, but they also do this while allowing for free flow of traffic in and out of the building as well.

So, as you can see, there is a wide range of benefits associated with the installation of door plastic curtains - and we are also able to offer a variety of strip curtain kits to suit a variety of commercial uses (such as anti-static, polar grade and welding).
