Block the bugs!

How to keep flies and insects out of your commercial kitchens

With summer well on the way and with cafes, bars, restaurants, and pubs returning to a near normal we will need something new other than “the virus” to moan about soon! And one of the biggest annoyances to the hospitality trade and their customers is pesky insects buzzing around your food! Ensure you keep your commercial kitchens clean by installing mesh curtains on the open doorways. We manufacture our pest control curtains to suit any opening size and have options on mesh or PVC depending on your requirements.

Let us see the top 5 benefits of insect curtains in kitchens…

1: BLOCKS BUGS

Stop airborne pests from entering your kitchens. When it is hot outside, we all want to open our windows and doors – unfortunately, in commercial kitchens this allows insects to fly in causing both annoyance and hygiene issues. Rayflex mesh insect barriers stop insects getting in whilst allowing fresh air to easily pass through. Mesh or perforated PVC curtains are ideal for environments such as bakeries, supermarkets, and restaurants, where hygiene must be kept at a high standard without risk of contamination from bugs.

2: EASY ACCESS

Working in busy environments often means that doorways are left open for convenience but this, again, means that insects can enter the workplace causing irritation and hygiene issues. Our mesh insect barriers do not restrict pedestrians from entering and exiting the area, our curtains support hands-free access, meaning there are no issues with accessibility for workers and customers alike. Mesh curtains are fitted with a weighted bottom so once the pedestrian has passed through, it closes itself again maintaining the protection against insects and ensures that the summer breeze does not pry the curtain open or send the strips flying.

  1. EASY, QUICK AND SAFE INSTALLATION

We are the manufacturers of pest control curtains; you can trust us to recommend and supply the correct mesh or PVC barrier to suit your requirements, but we do not install.  This is because we do not think you have to pay 5 times the price of the product to solve your airborne pest issues.  A simple DIY kit with self-fit instructions is provided and easily followed.

  1. BESPOKE

As manufacturers we can bespoke make a mesh curtain or perforated PVC curtains to suit your doorways, chose your colour, tell us about your business and what you need the pest barrier to achieve, and our sales team will quickly and efficiently offer a quote with a system perfect for your environment. We can manufacture and ship within a few days, and you will have your new insect barrier installed before you know it.

  1. ECONOMICAL

Our mesh insect barriers can be easily stored away once the summer weather has passed, (we are all aware of how short-lived our British summers can usually be!) so the mesh curtains can usually be reused time and time again until the strips become worn, in this case, you can purchase from our replacement strips system. The suspension system should long surpass the life of any of our PVC or mesh strips, so we can guarantee the mesh curtains will be a very economical purchase for your business and pay for itself as there is less need for cooling systems to be constantly active in your workplace.

The great consumer spend is coming

Cold Storage and Freezer PVC Strip Curtain

Stock your fridges and get ready for a summer of sales

It’s definitely a July 19 unlocking … unless it’s not! What we do know is that consumer appetite is back! With social distancing and outdoor gatherings still making us all feel comfortable prepare for a summer season of outdoor BBQs, picnics, beer, and wine fuelled garden parties. Your commercial fridges will need to be full to the brim of chilled foods and drinks. Do not let your customers down by serving warm, non-premium drinks and foods. Ensure your commercial fridges are well maintained and covered with PVC chiller blinds to keep the cold air inside your chillers and see you the whole summer through.

Here we list the 10 key benefits of our PVC chiller blinds:

  • Temperature control – ensure that the fridge temperature is maintained at the correct temperature and permanently below 7 degrees Celsius – the temperature at which bacteria multiplies.
  • Effective cross contamination screens – we are all a bit corona obsessed but chiller blinds for fridges do help stop cross contamination of all viruses and bacteria. By covering the fridge opening you ensure that minimal air borne particles enter for chilled space.
  • Energy savings – up to 50% energy savings on our dual fit PVC chiller blinds. Reduce the energy consumption of your commercial fridge by covering the opening and keeping the cold air inside the fridge where it belongs.
  • Reduce load on compressors – the most expensive part of most commercial fridges is the compressor. Pressure to keep open fridges below 7 degrees puts a permanent stress on the load of the compressor meaning it needs to be replaced more frequently.  PVC curtains reduce the stress by up to 75%!
  • Product visibility – Crystal clear PVC blinds will ensure that customers can always see the products on the shelf. They simply put their hands through the PVC curtains to take the product they want.
  • Optimum Airflow – Cold air flow bests when it is contained. By placing a barrier across the front of your open fridges it will ensure that the cold air circulates equally and does not sit and escape nearest the air conditioning unit.
  • Reduction in wastage – food and other perishables stored in the fridges will have a longer shelf life, food will not spoil as quickly because it is being stored at the correct temperature and with the correct airflow.
  • Easy to self-install – self installed on your fridges in minutes and without any hardware requirements, our rail section with strong 3m self-adhesive tape is simply stuck onto the front of your fridges.
  • Easy to maintain and clean – PVC chiller blinds are designed to be cleaned; they get a lot of hands passing through them. Our rail system is designed to unclip as one piece allowing you to wipe down (with water only) your PVC.
  • Easy and quick restocking – as with cleaning these chiller blinds unclip with ease. Remove when re-stocking and click back into place when you are finished. Do not battle to re-stock during the lunchtime rush with the PVC curtains in place!

You will be amazed that you have not covered your fridges with chiller blinds before and when you start making savings make sure you invite us to the party!

New range of COVID-19 products and Sneeze Screens

PVC Strip announce the launch of our new range of covid-19 products and sneeze screens.

We are proud to announce the launch of our new range of covid-19 products  and sneeze screens.

Here at PVC Strip, we are regarded across our industry as specialists in the supply and manufacture of PVC curtains, made to measure PVC strip curtains, PVC strip curtain readymade kits, PVC strip rolls, welding PVC screens, PVC screens & PVC dividers, PVC sheets, PVC chiller blinds, suspension systems and PVC insect curtains & fly screens impact doors for both industrial and commercial applications and we have turned our commercial, manufacturing, and marketing expertise to producing a range of COVID-19 products and sneeze screens which is now available online. You can see our full range of covid screens here.

As the UK starts to exit the latest lockdown restrictions that have been in place, on and off, for over 15 months now, it is likely that whilst legal restrictions may come to an end, advice on social distancing will be a part of our daily lives until the global pandemic has come to an end. Experts and advisers believe this is likely to be throughout 2021 and well into 2022. With many businesses yet to fully reopen and home working still being advised where possible, there are still many businesses yet to implement full covid secure working practices and the need for protective equipment remains high, especially in the hospitality and leisure sectors.

In response to the continued demand in PPE equipment, we have developed a range of acrylic screens, sneeze guards and cough shields. These acrylic virus screens significantly help to reduce the spread of COVID-19/Coronavirus by placing a physical barrier in any location where face-to-face contact occurs. We have also launched the Screen-Flex Screens which are one-piece area containment systems. The Screen-Flex range helps to reduce the spread of COVID-19/Coronavirus by creating lightweight (600 micron/0.5mm), flexible PVC shield areas and work bays.

To support our bold claim to be the best in the business, don’t forget we also provide a price match guarantee on all our current stock of PVC products, including our range of Covid protection screens and we back this up with a promise that we will never be beaten on any ‘like-for-like’ written quotation. Our in-house purchasing team reviews our pricing policies and monitors competitor prices daily to ensure we remain extremely competitive in the UK PVC and personal protection products market. You will not buy better no matter how hard you look, providing you want the best quality as well as the lowest prices.

We pride ourselves on being product experts with wide industry experience, and we only supply competitively priced, highest grade PVC solutions to our customers.

PVC resin prices under pressure during 2021 as manufacturers deal with the economic impact of the pandemic.

Manufactures are experiencing the economic impact of the ongoing pandemic as prices of many raw materials rise above the base line inflation rate. One area under cost pressure is that of manufactured PVC products, including our very own PVC Strip Curtain range of products, accessories, and replacement parts which rely on the wholesale cost of PVC resin which has seen multiple price increases during 2020 and the beginning of 2021.

PVC is a globally used, versatile and a relatively cost-effective raw ingredient that is used in the manufacture of a broad range of products used around the home and used by industry. Everything from industrial welding screens to flip flops can be made from PVC. Starting in early 2020, many business sectors and manufacturers have seen price increases in PVC resin due to the pandemic and related business challenges.   Reduced production levels combined with strong consumer demand for many PVC related products has altered the fine balance between manufacturing supply and consumer demand as many industries were forced to shut down during March 2020 and again at the beginning of 2021.  The main price pressures have resulted from the overall rising costs of business operations such as energy, distribution, and the base PVC resin prices which is the core of many PVC based products.

Plastic News picked up on this price story and said that PVC prices rose for 5 consecutive months once the pandemic started to take effect and that prices were approximately 20% higher at the end of November 2020, compared to June 2020. The published article also stated that the rise in demand was pushed higher by the quarantine results on household projects, mentioning the fact that the construction industry in the United States of America and Canada typically accounts for about 60% of the PVC consumption.

Another leading industry source, Plastics Technology created an article in the last quarter of 2020, about the upward pressure on PVC resin prices seen during 2020. According to the author, PVC prices went up three times in just two months because of “a tight market, strong demand from the construction industry, higher export prices, limited availability, and the late-settling September ethylene contract price increase,” all of which sent global PVC production costs in the wrong direction.

As 2020 got underway, and businesses reacted to the growing uncertainty regarding the pandemic, there was limited availability of resin from multiple PVC makers around the world which according to S&P Global, was made worse by chlor-alkali production issues and hurricane damage at manufacturing facilities. We also saw a big change in consumer behaviour which filtered through to business operations, such as the steep rise in online shopping and the higher expectations placed on delivery times, resulting in higher transportation costs. Both on a global scale and at a local level, with container costs rising as much as 10-fold in some instances, these changes in behaviour are likely to remain and will continue to impact businesses, their operational costs, and the cost to operate as rates increase in the year ahead.

Here at PVC Strip, we are not immune to what happens on the global stage and to these rising costs.  We have worked hard and continue to do so to minimise the impact of these price increases to our customers as much as we possibly can. This includes focussing on our price promise guarantee and extending this throughout 2021, absorbing as much of the external cost increases as we can to remain the best value supplier of industrial PVC Curtains and associated products.

PVC-Strip extends price match for 2021 and beyond.

Following the success of the PVC-Strip price match initiative throughout the lockdown months, we have made the decision to extend the popular initiative until at least the end of 2021 and probably beyond.

We are the UK’s biggest manufacturer, distributer, and spare parts supplier of PVC strip curtains, welding screens and chiller blinds and hold the largest stock of PVC strip rolls anywhere in the UK.

To support our claim as the best in the business and to back up our value promise, we provide a price match guarantee on all our PVC strip curtains and promise that we will not be beaten on any ‘like-for-like’ written quotation. Our in-house purchasing team is constantly reviewing our pricing policies and squeezing our margins so we can remain extremely competitive in the PVC market. You will not buy better no matter how hard you look, providing you want the best quality as well as the lowest prices.

As well as providing the best products at the best prices, we also provide unrivalled expertise and customer support. We have been providing a range of industrial door, curtain, and PVC products since 1975.  We make a point of standing out from the crowd, making sure we are seen in our industry as the company to go to for all industrial strip curtain products.

We pride ourselves in being product experts with wide industry experience. We only supply competitively priced, highest grade PVC curtain solutions for our customers, and we know the commercial demands of all the industries we provide products to, meaning that we can recommend the correct PVC grade and performance for each industrial and commercial application. Our highly efficient and experienced sales and after sales teams go above and beyond the call of duty to provide advice and support to our customers during the specification and buying process, during installation of the curtain, and on continued repair and maintenance, long after the sale has been completed.

Please contact a member of our sales team to discuss your PVC strip curtain requirements and in the unlikely event you believe you have been offered a better price for the same product, upon inspection of the quote, we will beat it.

We can always guarantee that when you purchase from PVC-Strip, you are making the right decision and purchasing the highest quality product at the best price on the market.

Top tips from PVC Strip for getting the most out of your industrial curtains

We are here to give you advice and to help you buy PVC Strip Curtains or industrial impact doors. Do you want some simple advice on cleaning, maintenance, or replacing parts? Here are the top 5 questions we have come across from people in manufacturing and warehousing who ask us about PVC industrial strip curtains, and the tips we have put together on the back of these questions on getting the most out of your investment for years of worry-free usage.

What about when the strip curtains become dirty?

Not to worry, they are easy to clean. All you really need is a bucket of clean warm water and a nice big sponge. Just simply wiping and rinsing with warm water will be enough to get most of the dirt off. If not, a solution of specialist PVC cleaning fluid will get the last bits of grime and grease off.

Once you have cleaned the strips, dry down to avoid streaks just like you would when cleaning a window. If your PVC strips are incredibly old, slightly damaged, or beyond simple cleaning, you can purchase individual replacement strips to match the ones on your curtains.

PVC Strip Curtain Roll

Where can impact doors be used?

Anywhere you want is the simple answer. As costs of manufacture have come down, it is no longer large factories and warehouses that can afford them, but any business that wants a flexible, energy-saving solution to providing a flexible door to an open space. Their durability means they are great for areas with vehicle access, whilst lighter-weight doors can be used for areas used by pedestrians.

What information do I need to provide when ordering PVC Strip Curtains?

You will need to measure the height and width of the opening and provide us with this information. if you need any help with this, just get in contact with us. You only need to measure the clear opening space, as we will automatically add any extra on the width and the height of the doorway to make sure any minor adjustments at installation can be made.

We will also need to know if the door opening is likely to be completely internal or external and the type of traffic that will use the doorway, such as people or vehicles, as all this information will help us to determine which product is perfect for your business and to calculate the right price and delivery times.

Do I need to buy the complete kit again if my PVC strip curtain needs replacing?

At PVC Strip we provide replacement parts, so you do not need to buy a complete replacement kit for your PVC curtain/impact door. This is not true of all industrial door manufacturers, however, as many do not 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. Our  PVC strips are sold individually so you can order the exact number you need to replace.

How long will it take for my order to arrive?  

As most of these PVC products are held at our warehouse here in Warrington in the UK, and most standard items are in stock, you should be able to receive a next-day delivery for standard items. Check the current delivery status on our website or call us for clarification.  Non-standard items and made to measure industrial curtains are generally despatched within 3-5 working days.

 

PVC Strip is the UK’s largest manufacturer of PVC strip curtains and we hold the largest stock of PVC strip rolls in the UK. We offer a price match guarantee on our PVC strip curtains and we will not be beaten on any ‘like for like’ written quotation. We constantly review our pricing so we can remain extremely competitive in the PVC market. We also guarantee that when you purchase from PVC Strip, you are purchasing the highest quality product at the best price on the market.

The Cold Chain & PVC Strip Curtain: A Match Made in Heaven

Allowing you to control your environment every step of the way, a cold chain is a temperature-controlled supply chain. It is used to help extend and ensure the shelf life of “cool cargo”; products such as fresh seafood, frozen food, photographic film, chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs.

An essential part of any cold chain are PVC strips: manufacturing > distribution > stores. It’s important that you choose the correct PVC grade when selecting PVC strips for your cold chain.

Below is a brief guide to some of the different grade PVC strips we offer and how well they operate.

  • Rayflex standard grade PVC: operates well between +50°c and -15°c
  • Rayflex low-temperature grade: operates well between +30°c and -25°c
  • Rayflex super polar grade: operates well between +15°c and -60°c

Manufacturing

Food preservation processes with fridges up to +0°c, freezers down to -12°c and deep freezers down to -45°c, require the use of PVC strips to ensure that food items don’t become compromised.

PVC strip curtains play an integral part in the food preservation process. When doors are left open, the PVC strip curtains ensure that there’s no air loss in these environments so when people are coming and going in a walk-in fridge, the PVC strips create a temporary barrier to ensure food preservation processes aren’t affected.

Storage

Depending on the food being stored, best before dates, ripening processes and the temperature at which consumables need to be stored at. The majority of large facilities will have their own cold storage facilities and regulations will state that the food items in question need to be kept at a constant temperature with agreeable tolerances in place.

Cold Storage and Freezer PVC Strip Curtain

Again, PVC strip curtains are used in every single cold store environment, regardless of what is being stored.

Distribution & Logistics

In the cold chain, transport is highly regulated and specialist, refrigerated vehicles are deployed in order to ensure that whatever the goods in transit are, they leave the storage facility and arrive at their destination in the same state.

Not only do PVC strips help to maintain the temperature in the vehicles, but they also ensure cross-contamination during the journey isn’t caused by fumes, debris, vermin or insects. This can easily happen when people enter and exit so PVC strip curtains really do play an integral part here.

Preparation Points, Commercial and Retail Stores

The final part to the cold chain before the goods are on display and ready to be purchased by customers is commercial and retail stores and preparation points. These environments have PVC strip curtains installed because the retailer has to ensure that their products are presented to their customers in accordance with strict regulations.

This ensures that the goods are turned around in line with sell by dates and remain fresh and in the best condition possible so that they can be sold.

Our PVC Strip Range

PVC-Strip is the UK’s largest manufacturer of PVC strip curtains, so we understand that there isn’t one grade of PVC suitable for all applications. From our 40+ years in business, we have discovered the most popular grades of PVC in the industry and we’ve expanded to hold the UK’s largest stock of PVC rolls, suited just for our customer’s needs. Take a look at our full range of PVC strip rolls below and see how we can provide solutions to common problems in your environment.

CLEAR PVC ROLL:Clear PVC Strip Roll

The Clear PVC strip roll is the standard grade of PVC that is used in a wide range of applications. The PVC is crystal clear, allowing ease of access for both pedestrians and vehicles while complying with health and safety regulations. The clear PVC strip roll is ideal for almost any application and is also available in low-temperature, which is ideal for environments that are constantly below -0°C, often found in cold stores and refrigerated vehicles to maintain the temperature of the environment.

RIBBED PVC ROLL:Ribbed PVC Strip Roll

The ribbed PVC strip roll is used in more frequently in high traffic areas, for ease of access and durability. The thick ribbed protrusion ensures that the PVC is protected while also remaining safe for pedestrians and vehicles. The ribbed PVC roll is also available in low temperature, ideal for environments that operate below -0°C. We recommend this PVC roll in applications that have constant vehicular and pedestrian traffic throughout the day, most commonly seen in warehouses for forklift trucks and workers to easily pass through.

FROSTED PVC ROLL:Frosted PVC Strip Roll

The frosted PVC strip roll is used most commonly as a privacy partition. The frosted effect reduces visibility but allows light to pass through. Ideal for environments where particular areas need to be hidden from the public eye and offer privacy to staff, e.g., mortuaries, stock areas and open office areas. The frosted PVC strip roll should be considered in conjunction with your health and safety policy as the lessened visibility could pose a risk to the public and staff when passing through.

PERFORATED PVC ROLL:Perforated PVC Strip Roll

The perforated PVC strip roll is a summer bestseller. Most commonly found in hot kitchens, supermarkets and warehouses in warmer months where pests can cause big hygiene risks. The PVC is clear, but contains small perforated holes throughout which allow airflow but prevents insects from passing through. The perforated PVC strip roll is ideal for preventing hygiene risks and improving overall health and safety in food preparation areas. This PVC strip is often used as an alternative to our mesh strips that work in a similar way.

COLOURED PVC: Red PVC Strip Roll

We supply two options of coloured PVC here at PVC-Strip, coloured and transparent. Our range consists of red and blue in translucent and opaque, black and grey in opaque. Most commonly found as edge markers to denote hazard areas or access point, the Coloured PVC strip rolls can be used in a variety of applications. Ranging from poultry sheds, art and film sets and food manufacture environments. PVC can also be printed on, providing a unique material, often used in corporate branding.

ANTI-STATIC PVC ROLLS:Anti Static PVC Strip Rolls

The anti-static PVC strip roll is designed for installation in datacentres and cleanrooms, offering the best solution for their unique requirements, the main purpose is for contamination control and creating airflow. The benefits of including our anti-static range in datacentres is the increase in capacity with lower, more stable temperatures – which saves energy on air conditioning by up to 67%, optimise server cooling and see ROI in under a year and it maximises airflow dynamics and increases the effectiveness of hot aisle/cold aisle isolation.

The anti-static PVC keeps cleanroom areas free of dust, pollution and other cross contaminates, removes static charge from clothing and prevents the charge being passed inside the cleanroom and helps to contain the environmental regulation within the cleanroom.

ANTI-INSECT PVC ROLL:Anti Insect PVC Strip Rolls

The anti-insect PVC strip roll is translucent yellow and contains citronella, designed to deter airborne pests, like bees, wasps and flies. This range of PVC is very popular in summer, mostly installed in hot kitchen environments, like bakeries and restaurants. The anti-insect PVC improves contamination control and reduces the risk of hygiene breaches in the environment.

WELDING GRADE PVC ROLL:Bronze Welding Grade PVC Strip Roll

The welding grade PVC strip rolls are available in red, bronze and green. The PVC strip rolls can be manufactured into screens, curtains or portable booths for your welding environment. The rolls are naturally dark in colour, however, when light passes through it improves the visibility, making worker observations much easier and removing the risk of harm to workers in the area. The welding grade PVC strip rolls are ideal for protecting workers by screening out hazardous UV rays and blocking sparks or hot metal projectiles that could cause severe burns and fires in the environment.

What are the Benefits and Advantages of Installing Plastic Strip Curtains?

PVC strip curtains offer a variety of benefits and advantages to any application they are installed in. The strip curtain is designed to form a flexible barrier across an opening, making environments safer, improving temperatures and offering ease of access. Each kit is carefully manufactured to each industry’s unique requirements, ensuring each environment has the ideal solution.

Industrial PVC Strip Curtains

Strip curtains can be found in a large variety of environments, ranging from;

 

  • Cold Stores
  • Warehouses
  • Schools
  • Data Centres
  • Cleanrooms
  • Restaurants
  • Farms
  • Restaurants / bars / cafés

Each PVC strip curtain requirement is unique, specifically manufactured with PVC that will work best in the environment. For example, cold stores and walk-in freezers require the temperature to reach as low as -32°C but cannot let the cool air escape when workers are passing in and out of the space. Polar grade PVC is ideal for this application, ensuring the temperature is regulated and the strips are self-closing. The PVC strips are flexible, even in lower temperatures and won’t hinder any access in and out of the area.

 

What benefits can you expect from installing PVC strip curtains?

Cold Storage and Freezer PVC Strip Curtain

 

  • Low cost and easy to maintain
  • Maintains the rooms’ ambient temperature
  • Prevents the loss of hot or cold air
  • Isolates against noise or the movement of airborne particles
  • Easy to repair or replace on a strip by strip basis
  • Admits light and omits rain, wind and draughts from the workplace

 

PVC strip curtains can be ordered in different sizes, weights and grades – all dependent on your application. We can supply specialist grades for unique applications, such as welding grade material and anti-static PVC. For curtains that will be located externally, the PVC is often a thicker grade with an increased overlap to protect from the outside elements. Internal applications will be lighter to improve access for pedestrians.
