Industrial plastic curtains are long, narrow strips of PVC that are hung individually to make a curtain, which forms a seamless protective barrier on doorways and openings. They can also be used as partitions, to control temperatures in small sections of large buildings/areas.
PVC is well known as one of the most versatile materials on the market. Not only is it very durable and robust, but it is also highly flexible when mixed with the right chemicals. These qualities mean it is perfect for industrial plastic curtains as the barrier can be pushed through by a person or a vehicle, as the strip parts to allow them through.
PVC is also hardwearing, meaning it is less likely to break or damage even with regular use. PVC strips can also be made in different thicknesses, in different colours and in pretty much any size you require. This is one of the main reasons why many businesses use them.
The energy-saving benefits of plastic strip curtains
Industrial plastic strip curtains have many energy-saving benefits that can help in the commercial and manufacturing sectors. The main long-term benefit of installing industrial plastic curtains is saving money on gas and electricity bills. Most people have no idea about what the cost of wasted energy is when businesses use air-conditioning units, heating, heavy machinery, substantial cooling systems, and lighting without energy saving measures in place.
Businesses such as food processing factories and warehouses usually rely on industrial curtains due to the insulation properties that ColdStop insulated curtains can provide. The ambient temperature of different departments in food processing facilities can vary dramatically. At the same time, pedestrians and small vehicles, such as forklifts and pallet trucks, need to be able to access each area constantly. Industrial plastic curtains can provide an insulated barrier between the areas to help maintain the temperature without making them hard to access.
Having an insulated barrier between areas reduces the impact on heaters and coolers, as they don't have to work as hard to maintain the temperature, which can positively impact your electricity and gas bills. You can also use PVC strip curtains to cover smaller pedestrian doors and windows to help insulate the premises and partition off accessways and walls.
Due to the PVC strip size, very little space is left around a person or vehicle for heat transference when an object or person passes through the curtain. Once the person or vehicle has passed, the curtain's weight causes it to close and form a barrier almost instantly.

Industrial plastic curtains have many uses in commercial and industrial settings, but their main benefit is to save you money on energy bills - through cost-effectiveness, efficiency and increased productivity.
