The high price of energy is on everyone's minds at the moment. Did you know that PVC curtains are one of the easiest straightforward products you can use to help make your cold rooms more efficient?
This post will look at the importance of PVC curtains as an energy-saving tool and their essential role in energy efficiency.
What are PVC strip curtains?
PVC strip curtains consist of several transparent strips cut from flexible strips of PVC. They are often used to separate two areas with varying temperatures. Although they may not appear to offer much protection at first glance, they have been proven to be as effective as a door at managing temperatures while keeping areas of high traffic safe.
Strip curtains are a fantastic option for large walk-in fridges and freezers as they allow employees to carry food to and from the cold room area while preventing cold air from escaping. They also help prevent dust and dirt from entering your cold room, which is why they are so popular with food processing plants, grocery stores and restaurants.
What do the different grades of PVC mean?
PVC strip curtains are available in various grades, depending on what you want to use them for. For example, if you don't choose the right grade of curtain to be exposed to the freezing temperature of a cold room, then you may be faced with issues with PVC cracking. So, choosing either polar grade strip curtains or Cold Stop insulated curtains is essential to maintain their insulating properties.
How do strip curtains help with Health and Safety?
One of the main features of PVC strip curtains is that they are see-through, which helps reduce workplace accidents as people can see if other people are entering or leaving the cold room at the same time as they are. It also removes the need for them to try to open heavy doors when they have their arms full of perishable items, which can also lead to injuries. Strip curtains also contribute to safe food storage practices by helping keep cold rooms, fridges and freezers at the correct temperature for food storage.
How do PVC strip curtains help with energy efficiency?
When people walk through Strip Curtains, they immediately close behind them again, meaning there is less chance for air to leak, which can lead to wasted energy. This helps keep the surrounding area at a comfortable temperature while keeping the cold air inside the room.
Strip curtains are also low maintenance
PVC strips are very flexible, so people can enter and exit cold rooms without damaging them. This makes them a more affordable option for the long term as they can't break - unlike cold rooms with doors.
If you end up with damaged strips, it is straightforward to replace them. Strip Curtains Direct offer a wide range of replacement PVC strips, including super polar grade PVC curtain replacement strips in various sizes.
