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.

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.
