How to Increase the Lifespan and Durability of PVC Strip Curtains

PVC strip curtains are an important part of many businesses and can offer a host of benefits. Not only do they help to protect your environment by keeping contaminants out, but they also provide insulation and noise reduction. PVC strip curtains have the advantage of a door while removing the inconvenience of needing to open and close it.

PVC strip curtains are often used at shipping plants, food processing plants, restaurants, grocery stores, and storage rooms to restrict air-conditioned air from escaping, which can save money on electricity bills and prevent outdoor trash from entering.

PVC strip curtains can be custom-made to fit any opening and are available in a variety of sizes. Below we list some ways to increase the lifespan of your strip curtains.

If you are using your PVC strip curtain in a high-traffic area, it is important to choose a thicker PVC strip. If you are using a cold storage application, you will want to choose a PVC strip that is specifically designed for that environment. 

Choose the Right Size PVC Strips

It is important to choose PVC strips that are the right size for your opening. If the PVC strips are too small, they will not be as effective at keeping contaminants out. If the PVC strips are too large, they will be more difficult to install and may not seal as well. 

Use Double-Ribbed Strips

Double-ribbed PVC strips are more durable and will last longer than single-ribbed or smooth strips. The ribs that stick out absorb most of the impact of the warehouse machinery. This helps to maintain the curtains’ fundamental form and function, as well as extend their lifespan. They are also more effective in keeping contaminants out. 

Install the PVC Strip Curtains Properly

In order to get the most out of your PVC strip curtain, it is important to install them properly. This includes making sure that the PVC strips are the right size for your opening and that they are installed correctly. 

Maintain the PVC Strip Curtains Regularly

PVC strip curtains should be cleaned regularly to remove dirt and debris. This will help to keep them looking new and prevent them from becoming damaged. If a PVC strip does become damaged, it is important to replace it as soon as possible. You do not have to replace the entire curtain, just replace the damaged strip. It is more economical to replace a strip than an entire curtain.
