European Usage of Plastic Strip Curtains

Agricultural plastic strip curtains

In the UK alone, plastic strip curtains are installed in a wide variety of industries such as cold stores, cleanrooms, warehouses, and schools. But where are the most common applications worldwide and why are they such a popular product?

As plastic strip curtains are such a diverse product, there is a huge range of applications PVC strip can be installed in. In the UK, they are most commonly found in very industrial settings, such as warehouses and cold stores. Plastic strip curtains are also found in environments such as zoos, schools, and restaurants – so the products are diverse enough to be applied almost anywhere… They even feature in movies and tv on occasion!

But what is the difference in Europe? Countries have unique applications where strip curtains are a necessity for example. France and Italy are known for their impressive vineyards and wine production but strip curtains are an essential asset to their production, as they ensure the cellar keeps at the perfect temperature whilst still in development. 

Spain and Portugal:

Known for their food markets and fishing ports, open-air stalls, food and hot weather means it’s the best place for bugs to gather – this is where PVC strip curtains come in… By installing strip curtains where possible on market stalls and fishing ports, it means the food cannot be contaminated by flies and other pests but also with the added benefit of keeping the food at a regulated temperature.

Norway & Germany:

Data centres are dotted all around Europe, most commonly in Norway & Germany. Some of the larger companies, like Digiplex who are based in Norway & Sweden, are the innovative leaders in the Nordic region. Plastic strip curtains are used in data centres to help with optimising server cooling, to aid in reducing carbon emissions and work as a low-cost non-technical alternative to expensive server cooling systems.
