Have you ever seen a door made from a series of PVC strips hanging in an overlapping fashion from the top of the doorway? These are called strip doors and they’re often used in places where there is a lot of machine or foot traffic – places where doors would be awkward and difficult to open/close.
This type of door, also sometimes called a strip curtain, are usually made out of a clear material for the sake of safety. There are other varieties, made with ribbed stripping, which can be more durable in areas where forklifts may be going back and forth, causing scratching and a lot of movement. If you’re working in areas that are refrigerated, polar grades may work well.
If you really are concerned about conserving energy, strip doors can be an added bonus. There are some especially cool benefits to consider:

  • Strip doors can act as noise barriers, creating a quieter work atmosphere for your employees.

  • Strip doors help you to control your work environment by controlling hot and cold air. They also help to keep air born pollutants from moving from one work area to the other while still allowing ventilation in a room.
  • Strip doors help to prevent fires because they’re made out of a special type of noncombustible PVC. It’s self extinguishing and flexible in nature.
