New Product Launch: Perforated Strip Curtains

Flies and other insects can cause significant issues for restaurants, takeaways and other food businesses. You may serve the most delicious food, have friendly and helpful serving staff who always get it right, and a pleasant ambience that encourages guests to return for more. However, if flies and wasps overrun you, then this will not only ruin your customer's dining experience but could also harm your business reputation as well. Food businesses suffer more than most with this type of problem as they have many things that flying pests love: food, foot traffic, frequently opened doors, moisture and shipments coming in and out.

Keeping flying pests out of food establishments can be an ongoing battle, but there are steps you can take to reduce the risk of them. They like to sneak into places through windows, doors and other openings, so the best way to prevent them coming in is to use exclusion methods, i.e. prevent them from coming in in the first place. You can do this by checking the outside of your restaurant for crevices and cracks, and then make sure these holes are filled with a waterproof filler or sealant.

Another excellent way to keep flying pests out is to use perforated PVC strip curtains. These provide the same protection from flies and wasps as standard strip curtains, but the perforated design helps to keep air flowing in the area as well. The perforated PVC strip curtain we are offering has been designed specifically with the catering industry in mind, and so it is designed for people to move through quickly, but it won't stand up to heavy-duty cages or forklift truck traffic.

Our perforated PVC is available in strip form of size 200m x 2mm with either a standard 36% overlap or a maximum overlap of 77%. The standard curtain sizes we offer range from 1m x 2m to 2m x 2m, however, if you contact us with your exact dimensions we can create a bespoke order for you. It is also available as a PVC bulk roll of 50m in length. Each door comes with the track, fittings and instructions for ease of fitting - and both the strips and the tracks can be cut to size.

Perforated PVC roll is the perfect strip curtain for you this summer if you are working in a hot kitchen, supermarket or warehouse as these are places where insects may be an issue in warmer months. This PVC strip has small perforated holes which allow air to flow through them, but will also prevent insects from getting in, which are a health and safety risk.
