Selection Guide for Industrial PVC Strip Curtains

by Mark Peters

PVC strip curtains are an ideal choice of doors for separating industrial spaces that require unobstructed access. These PVC doors are, however, not a one-size-fits-all solution for all industrial applications. For that reason, those who want to install the doors in their industrial facilities will need to know how to go about the process of selecting the right door type for their particular application. In case you fall into this category of individuals, here's a guide you can follow when it's time to choose PVC strip doors for your industrial operations:

Intended function of the doors

The PVC used to manufacture strip curtains do not have the same material properties. Each material grade is specially fabricated to suit industry-specific functions. For that reason, it is important to consider the specific requirements of your industrial application before making a selection. For example, clear PVC would be an appropriate fabrication material for doors where maximum visibility is desired and; where a clear entrance isn't required, opaque-coloured doors would fit the bill. If you want to eliminate static charge generated by industrial equipment, anti-static PVC strips are available.

Size of the passageways

Are you aware that how big, small or tall your industrial doorway openings are will impact your choice of PVC strip doors? For smaller doors that experience heavy human traffic, you should use small strip curtains, so as to make it easier for people to pass through. As the doors become wider and taller, wider strips will be needed in order to maintain easy passage. Larger doors that will be subjected to heavy mechanical traffic, e.g. trucks and forklifts, will call for thicker PVC.

Cost of installation

Last but not least, you will need to consider the price of PVC door installation before making a final decision. As expected, the best products are usually the most expensive on the market. The cheapest products might not be the best in terms of quality. Therefore, as a price-savvy buyer, you will need to strike a balance between the cost and quality of product you will need to install. Choose products that fit your door openings well, but also offer maximum functionality.

PVC strip curtains are configured to be adaptable to virtually any kind of industrial setting. If you need assistance selecting the right product for your specific industrial application, feel free to get in touch with a PVC door supplier local to you. They usually have a team of sales people ready to help customers with their projects.
