There are 3 different mounting options for the industrial PVC strip curtains. The most traditional and common would be the fixed track styles which include header mount, wall mount, and universal mount. These can be supplied in galvanized steel, aluminum or stainless steel.
For more specialized mounts of the PVC bulk rolls we have standoff mounts which are ideal for roll-up doors, piano hinges and sliding mounts for sliding strip curtains.
How To Choose The Correct Strip Width
By using the simple chart shown below you can choose the appropriate width of strip. For instance, if you have a very tall opening that you are trying to cover and the strip width is too narrow it will curl at the bottom. The taller the opening the wider the strip must be.
As an example if you have a 14’ high opening and it will be located indoors then ideal strip as shown in the chart below would be a 12” wide strip.
How much vinyl strip overlap do you need?
Determine the type and volume of traffic to select material overlap:
Personnel – Doors for people-only access should utilize small sized strips with less overlap. Consider 6″ or 8″ material with 33% to 67% overlap. Use 4″ material only on very small openings because smaller strips have less wind resistance and aren’t ideal for heavy forklift traffic.
Pallet Trucks – This indicates the door will get heavier traffic including material pallets, typically accompanied by a person. In this scenario, 6″ material with 67% overlap, or 8″ with 25% or 50% overlap is the best option.
Forklift Traffic – Forklift traffic indicates strip doors will face more abuse. Consequently, large PVC vinyl strip sizes are the best bet. Also consider the load the forklift will carry as the strips will drag over the load. If the load is light, very large strips may drag it off the forklift. Consider 8″ material with 50% to 100% overlap or 12″ material with 25% to 50% overlap.
Opening Size to Load Ratio:
If the opening is small compared to the load size, it’s better to consider smaller strips with less overlap so the strips don’t cause any drag. For example, consider 8″ material versus 12″ material on a 96″ high opening with an 84″ high load.
For large openings or in draft presence, consider larger vinyl strips and/or more overlap.
