Product Focus: PVC Chiller Blinds

pvc chiller blinds

On hot days, customers want to walk into newsagents, shops, bars, cafés or restaurants, go straight to your fridges and pick out a cold drink, sandwich, salad or snack. Imagine the disappointment for your customers that when they finally choose their product, it’s warm and in unsatisfactory condition. Did you know that up to 40% of customers just don’t buy warm drinks or food items? They’d rather go without or worse, go next door to your competitors!

This poses you with a problem – how do you display your goods, keep your energy consumption down and showcase your product offerings in multi-deck chillers whilst keeping your products cold?  The answer is simple: install an inexpensive PVC chiller blind.  The PVC is crystal clear so your customer can see into the fridge, the PVC strips are lightweight enough for your customers to simply reach through and grab the cold product they desire – you get to keep all your customers happy and save a fortune in energy in the process.

BUT ARE THEY A WORTHWHILE INVESTMENT?

YES!  The ROI is extremely fast, typically you will save up to 50% on fridge energy consumption, and they will pay for themselves within a few months. They optimise airflow evenly within the cabinet ensuring you have minimum product wastage. They also extend the life of your retail unit by lessening the load on the compressor.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER BENEFITS TO INSTALLING PVC CHILLER BLINDS?

Yes! They are extremely easy to self-install, maintain and clean. Our clever support system allows the full curtain section to clip in and out which also ensures you can restock your fridges with ease.  They do also help to deter petty theft – it’s not as easy to slip items into pockets when there is a PVC chiller blind in the way!

WHAT OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE? 

Colour: Clear / transparent (light blue tint)
PVC profile: Flat
Grade: Standard Temperature PVC strip
Width range: 100mm
Thickness range: 1mm (please note we offer 1.2mm and 2mm if required)
UV stable: Yes.
Temperature range: +50°c to -15°c (PVC can degrade at the extremities of this range).  If you require a PVC chiller blind to be made from low-temperature PVC (+30 / -40°c) then this is possible, we use 100mm w x 2mm thick freezer grade PVC material in this instance.

Our PVC strips are 100mm wide and we sell only PVC chiller blinds to the nearest incremental width.  For example, if your fridge is 1290mm wide we would supply 12 x 100mm – it is not possible to infill the remaining 90mm of space, you would have a small gap at either side.  The PVC chiller blinds are designed to cover off the majority of your opening to ensure enhanced energy savings.
