WHAT INFORMATION DO I NEED TO PROVIDE WHEN ORDERING PVC STRIP CURTAINS?

To correctly and quickly provide a quote on your bespoke PVC strip curtain, we will need you to measure the height and width of your opening. We automatically add allowances onto the width and height to ensure adjustments can be made after installation.
We also need to know the type and frequency of the traffic, the type of environment and whether the opening is completely internal or external facing. All of these factors will help us to decide which grade of PVC is best suited for your environment and allow us to calculate the price correctly.

WHAT OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE FOR PVC STRIP CURTAIN SUSPENSION SYSTEMS?

We have a variety suspension systems available, which one is most appropriate will depend on your application.
Stainless steel hook type suspension system: Our most economical suspension system, the stainless steel (1.2mm / 1.5mm) or heavy duty galvanised steel (3mm) hook type rail used in conjunction with our stainless steel suspension plates provide an industrial suspension ideal for industrial applications with heavy pedestrian or FLT traffic.

Bullet type suspension system: Our premium range plastic bullet rails are moulded to create an aesthetically pleasing suspension solution with a heavy focus on health and safety.  There are no steel parts on this system (which have sharp edges) so it makes it ideal for use in schools or other areas that have members of the public present.  It also creates a premium seal on your PVC strip curtain.

Sliding tracks:  both our hook and bullet type suspension systems can change your static PVC strip curtain into a moveable partition.  Mounted to a sliding track using runners the hook or bullet system will simple glide your PVC strip curtain out of the way, in a simple manner to a sliding wardrobe door – the entire PVC panel would move.

MY PVC STRIP CURTAIN IS DAMAGED – DO I NEED A NEW KIT?

PVC strip curtains are a replacement product, over time and with use they will get dirtied and damaged.  But you don’t always need to replace the entire PVC strip curtain and suspension system, we offer a replacement PVC strip service that means PVC strips can be purchased individually to fill the gaps in your kit. Please contact our sales team for more information.

HOW DO I MAINTAIN MY PVC STRIP CURTAIN?

It’s very simple to clean and maintain a PVC strip curtain, simply wipe the strips with warm water and a clean cloth. By ensuring your PVC strips are kept clean, you can remove health and safety risks of clouding and reduced visibility and you can avoid replacing your strips earlier than necessary.  Please do not leave PVC strips in water, they can cloud.  Wipe them down and hang them vertically as soon as possible to avoid potential water reaction.

WHAT WILL BE INCLUDED IN MY PVC STRIP CURTAIN KIT?

Each PVC strip curtain kit will contain your chosen suspension system, the amount of PVC strips to cover the opening and fitting instructions. We do not include fixing screws/bolts – you must use a fitting that suits the material you are drilling into.
