Preventing the loss of cold air from your cooler or freezer and reduces your energy bill while keeping your food or beverages cold. Using a butcher curtain will eliminate this expensive air loss. The freezer door flaps hold the cold air in and prevent warm air from entering. The butcher doors also meet the Energy and Security Act of 2007 which requires strip doors on all new walk-in coolers and freezers.
Butcher Curtain Mounting Options
- Stud Mount - Mounts to the underside or face of the freezer or cooler and is ideal for wide openings. To replace worn-out strips simply remove lock nuts from the studs.
- Tube Mount - For up to 6' wide openings and mounts to the face or underside of the freezer or cooler. To replace worn-out strips simply remove one end bracket and then you can slide off the strips and easily replace them.

The USDA passed the onus of compound compliance/approval to be under FDA provisions, specifically Title 21 CFR (Code of Federal Regulations). Since the USDA does not approve equipment or materials, we have material that meets CFR 21, which ensures that the compounds used are FDA certified raw materials. The AKON curtains are Title 21 CFR compliant and carry a UFL-94 Fire Cert.
Both styles of mounting hardware are very quick to install. Only basic tools are required to attach the hardware to the freezer or cooler.
