Top 5 tips for getting the most out of your PVC Strip Curtains

Need help with purchasing PVC Strip Curtains or industrial impact doors or want some simple advice on cleaning or maintenance? Here are the top 5 questions people in industry have been asking about with reference to PVC industrial Strip Curtains and some expert tips on getting the most out of your investment for years of worry-free usage.
If my PVC Strip Becomes Dirty, what can I do?
PVC strips, especially the clear options can appear to become dirty relatively quickly, especially in higher traffic manufacturing facilities where there is a lot of grease and dust in the air. Luckily, this problem is extremely easy to fix. Take down the strips and gently wipe the strips using just warm water. You can also source and purchase detergents specifically made for materials such as PVC but make sure you read the manufacturers instructions before applying. Once cleaned, dry down the strips to avoid streaks. If your PVC strips are old, damaged and beyond simple cleaning, you can purchase replacement strips to match the ones on your curtains and just replace the damaged ones.

Where should I use impact doors?
Impact doors have been used for many years, traditionally in heavy industry and manufacturing companies where there is heavy traffic and having traditional shutter doors or leaving the doorway open is simply impractical due to the time in opening and closing the door or loss of heat energy.
However, as product development has lowered the cost of impact doors and made them more affordable, they have become more widely used commercially as a means of heat loss management, contaminant protection and helping to reduce noise. They are no longer only used in large warehouse or factories but can be seen in many smaller places of work.
What information do I need to provide when ordering PVC Strip Curtains?
You will need to measure the height and width of the opening. You only need to measure the clear opening space as the manufacturer of the curtains will automatically add any allowances on the width and the height of the doorway to make sure any minor adjustments can be made later if needed.
Let the manufacturer of the door know if the opening is completely internal or external facing and the type of traffic that Is likely to use the doorway, such as pedestrians or forklift trucks as all this information will determine which product is perfect for you and to calculate the price and delivery times.
Do I need to buy the complete kit again if my PVC Strip Curtain Needs Replacing?
Luckily, you should not need to buy the whole kit again, many PVC Curtain / Impact door manufacturers offer a replacement PVC strip service to their customers. It is worth checking out this service prior to purchasing your first kit as you want to make sure you can easily obtain spare parts in the future if you need them. The PVC strips are often sold singularly so you can order just the right number you need replacing. Some companies will have a minimum charge for this service, but typically at £30, this is still good value compared to a complete kit replacement.

How long will it take for orders to arrive?
As these products are manufactured in the UK and most standard items are held in stock, you should be able to receive a next day delivery for standard items. Nonstock items and made to order industrial curtains are generally available within 3-5 working days. A lot faster than imported products
