The Benefits of Installing PVC Strip Curtains in Work Environments

Creating and sustaining a productive, safe, and comfortable working environment in large open workspaces, such as factories and warehouses, can be daunting. One of the most significant challenges is regulating temperature, particularly in areas with high traffic flow and frequent door or loading bay openings.

Fortunately, PVC strip curtains offer a practical and cost-effective solution by serving as a barrier between two environments. But their benefits extend beyond this primary function, making them a versatile addition to any workspace. Here are just a few of the advantages they can offer across a range of applications:

Temperature Control

One of the most significant benefits of using PVC strip curtains is their ability to help control temperature. By creating a barrier between two different environments, PVC strip curtains can help to maintain consistent temperatures in two different areas. This is particularly beneficial in areas such as cold storage rooms, where temperature control is essential.

Temperature control also has the added benefit of improving employee productivity, especially in areas usually prone to draughts.

Energy Savings

By helping to maintain consistent temperatures in different areas, PVC strip curtains can also help to retain heat and save energy in the long run. This is particularly beneficial in areas such as warehouse loading bays, where a constant draught can put pressure on heating or cooling systems, resulting in high energy bills.

It’s not more important than ever for businesses to reduce their energy wastage. Find out more about how PVC strip curtains can save your business energy costs.

Noise Reduction

PVC strip curtains can also help to reduce noise levels. They can act as efficient sound absorbers and noise insulators, ideal for areas where noise levels must be kept to a minimum, particularly in loading bays or areas close to busy roads. They also make the working environment more comfortable for employees as loud working environments can cause exhaustion, distraction, and stress.

Chemical Resistant

Depending on where the PVC strip curtains are placed, they could be exposed to chemicals or substances. Our strip curtains are made from high-quality PVC that is resistant to chemicals and oils. They also help to prevent the spray of chemicals and substances from going into other work areas.

UV Resistant

PVC strip curtains that are used in external doorways can be exposed to sunlight. This can be a problem for standard PVC as UV radiation can cause the material to become brittle and crack over time.

That’s why we take every measure to ensure the longevity and durability of our strip curtains. A UV stabiliser is added to our PVC strips during manufacturing, protecting the material from ultraviolet light degradation. This property helps maintain the performance of each curtain strip, reducing the need for frequent replacements or repairs.

Dust, Insect, and Pest Control

Strip curtains provide an effective barrier against the elements, helping to uphold a clean and hygienic environment. By regulating the amount of dust, debris, insects, and even small birds, that enter an area, they help ensure optimal levels of cleanliness.

Improved Safety

PVC strip curtains can also help to improve safety in the workplace. Their transparency allows pedestrians and vehicles on either side to see what is coming, helping to prevent collisions. They can also help to reduce the risk of slips and falls by preventing rainfall and other elements from spreading from outside environments.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

Strip curtains are also easy to install and require very little maintenance. They can be easily fitted to a variety of different spaces and can be trimmed to length as needed. They are also easy to clean, requiring only occasional wiping down with warm water and a cloth or sponge.

PVC strip curtains are a cost-effective solution for a variety of applications. They are relatively inexpensive to purchase and install and can help to save money in the long run by reducing energy bills. Replacing damaged strips is also a straightforward process and there is no need to replace the whole curtain.

Overall, PVC strip curtains offer a variety of benefits for different applications. They are an effective, cost-efficient, and easy-to-install solution for controlling temperature, reducing noise, improving safety, and maintaining a clean and hygienic environment.

Increased Durability

PVC strip curtains are highly durable and capable of withstanding harsh weather conditions and heavy usage. They are resistant to damage from chemicals, and UV light degradation, making them ideal for use in a wide variety of settings.

Different PVC Strip Curtains for Different Applications

For some applications, a standard PVC strip curtain may not suffice. That’s why we offer a range of PVC strips, designed to work in a variety of environments. Each PVC strip has its own unique benefits for the environment it has been designed specifically for.
