Essentially, each PVC strip curtain makes sure each different environment has the ideal solution and the PVC strip curtains will be perfect for a number of different environments:

Designed to form a flexible physical barrier across almost any size of pedestrian or vehicle opening, PVC strip curtains offer many different benefits and advantages, regardless of the application that they are installed in. This variety of features and benefits makes them ideal for many industrial applications such as Industrial warehouses and loading bays. Manufacturers and food companies also use them for Freezer/Fridge curtains, both walk in and retail applications, cold rooms and they make excellent butchers’ curtains. PVC Strip curtains can also be manufactured coloured as well as clear and are then used as welding curtains.  They are often also found in public buildings, schools and universities and the dust prevention qualities makes them ideal for use in data centres and cleanrooms.  

 

PVC Strip Curtain Maintenance

PVC Strip Curtains can soon become dirty if not regularly cleaned and maintained, especially in manufacturing or processing companies where there is a lot of dust in the atmosphere or a lot of usage. However, this is not a major problem, as PVC curtains are very easy to clean. The easiest way to clean your PVC curtains is by using warm water and a sponge and this should be enough to get most of the muck and marks off and get them looking bright and clean If they are very grubby, you can buy specialist PVC cleaning solutions from many online retailers which will help remove more ingrained dirt and grease-based marks.

 

PVC Strip Curtains for Cold environments, freezers, and cold stores

PVC Strip curtains have been designed with cold environments in mind. If you need PVC strip curtains for a freezer, cold store or as an external barrier where outside temperatures are likely to fall well below zero then PVC strip curtains are a perfect solution. If the freezer or environment they are to be used in is an environment where the temperatures could get as low as -30°c, or more, then the PVC strips that you need will be specifically manufactured to be Polar Grade. Polar grade PVC has been designed specifically for this and would ensure optimum insulation and performance in the cold environment.

Polar grade PVC not only helps to regulate and stabilise the temperature either side of the curtain, but it will not hinder pedestrian or vehicle access in or out of the freezer or cold store, however hostile the environment it is that you’re using the strips curtains in.

Advantages of Chiller Blinds

Chiller blinds help maintain the cool temperature withing a chiller cabinet ensuring your business meets the food health safety standards relating to the storage of chilled or fresh foods. They can also help you reduce your energy consultation and costs by as much as 50% by limiting air-movement and keeping the chilled air within the cabinet. Chiller blinds can also help improve sales.

Many systems are also available with the option to have strips fixed with only upper rail leaving lower section to hang free.

Chiller blinds are also very hygienic and can be easily cleaned with simple soap and water. It Is also easy to keep the cabinet clean as the blinds can be removed to allow cleaning access to the chiller.

We have over 50 years’ combined experience of manufacturing an extensive range of warehouse, industrial and welding curtains and screens using PVC strips and sheets and our experienced team are on hand to help you with any questions you might have regarding the suitability of any of our welding curtains to your exact requirements.

All our high-quality PVC welding curtain products are manufactured and tested to the highest current  European and British quality standards and comply with European REACH directives

PVC Welding Curtains Colour Options

The low UV PVC strip material that we provide comes in 3 industry recognised colour options: Red, Green and Bronze. The colour of our welding screens is manufactured this way for more than indicating to outside workers that welding is taking place. The colour of the screen affects the wavelength of the light of the welding that reaches the eye of the welder or fellow work colleagues. The coloured PVC screens absorb UV radiation, and the colour is very important as different colours absorb different radiation levels and provide different levels of protection.

Our Red Welding curtains reflect more of the light and are well-suited to a welding process that uses medium amperage welding applications. Whilst our blue welding screens are ideal for medium to high protection welding situations as the dark colour protects eyes by blocking out a lot of the available UV light

Yellow and Clear PVC curtains do not provide professional eye protection in welding work areas and both yellow and clear curtains are manufactured as grinding curtains where there is no safety issue regarding UV Light. Although the yellow curtains do provide some level of protection against UV rays it is not suitable for use as a welding curtain.

The bronze (dark brown) low UV PVC strip is ideal for creating static welding screens and the bronze curtain will protect workers from harmful UV rays emitted during the welding process.

Our low UV bronze PVC strip curtain material is most commonly used by industry professionals who want to create small partitioned welding booths within their factories or large runs and factory divisions with allocated welding bays for multiple work stations or they wish to create bespoke applications where UV protection is required 

Low UV PVC strip is dark in colour as this is designed to screen out the harmful UV rays and welding flash, you can still see through the PVC when light comes from behind the PVC screen and the PVC curtain provides optical protection from metal welding and flash. Welding curtains also protects workers from sparks and hot metal shards that can cause severe burns to unprotected skin or set fire to flammable materials.

 

Sizes available

All our welding curtains are available in a variety of different widths and thicknesses depending on the application required.
