How Strip Curtains Direct is adapting its business during this global pandemic

The coronavirus outbreak has had a huge impact on the world of business, and this can be seen most clearly in the huge percentage drop on the Dow Jones on March 16th of this year. The drop of 3000 points was the worst drop since Black Monday of 1987. 

This pandemic is forcing businesses to cancel projects and events and is leaving some business owners wondering how solid their business really is. 

Here at Strip Curtains Direct, we know the pandemic is going to affect us - it is a global event after all. But it does not have to break us. We are working hard, along with our sister company worXmart, to adapt and innovate in order to not only survive but thrive. 

We are still open for business and will continue to trade - but we also want to help and support other businesses to get through this COVID-19 situation. The products we sell, both online at Strip Curtains Direct and through worXmart are essential to many businesses - and we want to continue serving our customers.

Of course, the health of our employees is paramount, so we have taken additional precautionary methods to ensure their safety. Our office staff are working from home (where possible) and our production staff have had their shifts split so they can adhere to the Government guidelines on social distancing. This may have an impact on our delivery times, so it is something to keep in mind.

We are, of course, keeping our premises hygienically clean and ensuring employees are wearing gloves throughout the whole manufacturing process. We have also replaced strip curtains in our warehouse with our Antimicrobial PVC Strip Curtains, where needed. These are specifically manufactured with hygiene control in mind as they contain additives that actively kill bacteria as well as preventing the growth of biofilm, fungi and mould. These strips are made with the same PVC as our super polar grade kits, and so can withstand temperatures from -55c to + 25c making them suitable for a wide range of uses.

If you wish to change the PVC strip curtains in your business to Antimicrobial ones then we are currently offering 10% of our Antimicrobial range - just use the code ANTI10 when you are ordering online.* Our Antimicrobial strips are available in 200mm x 2mm and 300mm x 2mm sizes.

Additionally, we are offering some new products aimed at combating the spread of COVID-19, through our sister site WorXmart. We have managed to supply some social distancing floor marking kits which are ideal for banks, supermarkets, hospitals, pharmacies and so on. Designed with safety in mind, they reinforce the message of keeping two metres apart when in public queues or workplaces.

Each sign is 235mm in diameter and is of premium quality - making it tough and durable enough to withstand busy industrial and commercial environments. Highly visible with clear instructions, the social distancing floor marking kits are available in both text and symbol-only designs.  We have made these available to our customers with the aim of helping all businesses comply with the Coronavirus / COVID-19 regulations. If you would like to order some for your business, please call 0333 999 7171 or email
