5 Reasons Why your Business Should Use Strip Commercial Doors

Strip commercial doors or strip curtains are a cost-effective and versatile option for partitioning interiors of a commercial building or adding a second layer of protection in addition to another external barrier. Made of PVC or vinyl strips, strip doors are quick to operate and innovative in their simplicity. Here are five reasons why your business should consider using commercial strip doors.

1. Noise Reduction

Strip doors can help to contain noise to a specific area. This is particularly helpful in businesses or factories with loud equipment. Strip doors can also help to isolate noise from louder workstations or a busy loading dock. In some settings, if you have openings to the street, strip curtains can also keep loud noises from bothering customers. Strip doors with high-quality PVC can reduce noise up to 17 decibels.

2. Contains Air Pollution

Another advantage of strip doors is their ability to contain dust, dirt, fumes, smoke, and other air pollutants. This helps to easily create a clean work environment for industries such as food and beverage manufacturing, while still allowing quick and easy access. Strip doors can also be placed just within commercial garage door openings to prevent debris from entering the building and to reduce drafts.

3. Energy Efficient

Strip doors help to reduce airflow and temperature fluctuations in temperature-controlled environments. This makes strip doors a popular choice for cold rooms and freezers. Commercial strip doors are also helpful at the exterior of buildings to provide a layer of insulation that contains the air conditioning or heating within a building, and to block the access of outside air. This barrier helps to maintain the predetermined temperature and reduces energy demands, providing more cost-effective and eco-friendly heating and cooling.


4. Unrestricted Movement

Although strip doors do a great job at keeping noise and air debris out, another advantage is that they do not restrict the movement of people. Strip curtains allow people and machinery, such as forklifts, to pass through quickly. This is helpful in factories and other settings where the speed of workflow is essential. At the same time, while strip doors allow easy access for the visitors you want, they help to keep out the visitors you don’t, like pests, birds and insects.


5. Employee Comfort

Since commercial strip doors help to maintain temperatures, reduce noise, and prevent debris/insects, they also help to improve employee comfort. Transparent strip curtains allow the access of natural daylight, which provides greater comfort, visibility, safety, and energy savings. Warehouses, factories, and health care settings are all investing in strip door barriers to improve the workplace and boost employee comfort.

Installed on the inside or the exterior of a building, strip curtains offer a huge range of benefits to your business, improving hygiene, safety, and comfort, while meeting industry regulations.
