Preventing the loss of cold air from your cooler or freezer reduces your energy bill while keeping your food or beverages cold. Using a walk-in cooler curtain or a walk-in freezer door curtain will eliminate this expensive air loss. The freezer door flaps hold the cold air in and prevent warm air from entering. The doors also meet the Energy and Security Act of 2007 which requires strip doors on all new walk-in coolers and freezers.

Applications & Codes
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.
In the past, the USDA examined the composition of materials and gave "letters of no objection" to those that were judged suitable chemically for the intended use. There is no longer any use for this protocol. To make sure the materials are of a high quality the Title 21 CFR is followed.
Our PVC strip curtains are meticulously designed to meet the stringent requirements set by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), ensuring optimal performance in hygiene-critical environments. They provide a reliable, durable solution for maintaining temperature control and cleanliness in food processing areas.
Cooler and Freezer Usage
Both styles of mounting hardware are very quick to install. Only basic tools are required to attach the hardware to the freezer or cooler. The studded hardware hangs the strips on studs with lock nuts. The tube mount style only requires a few screws on the right side and the left side of the opening.
Free flowing air in a controlled temperature zone is the number one cost for most food processing facilities and retail outlets. The freezer flap doors eliminate this unnecessary expensive and are one the of the quickest solutions to install. With an excellent ROI and ability to fit almost any opening, these clear food grade strips are found in almost all facilities with coolers and freezers.
Low Temp PVC Strips
The unique composition of the low temp strips stays flexible to -20° F and the standard strips stay flexible to 0° F. The PVC material is nonporous making for an extremely slick surface. This is ideal as it helps prevent bacteria buildup. Standard grade PVC comes in 6” and 8” widths. Low-temperature PVC comes in 6” and 8“ widths.
Benefits of Using a Strip Curtain on Your Cooler
There are many advantages to using strip curtains on coolers, especially in commercial and industrial environments where energy economy and temperature control are critical. All things considered, strip curtains are a useful and effective way to preserve temperature control, boost energy efficiency, and guarantee the integrity of stored items in colder climates. The following are some of the main benefits:
- Energy Efficiency: By reducing the quantity of cold air that leaves when the door is opened, strip curtains assist keep the cooler's temperature stable. Lower energy expenses result from using less energy to maintain the cooler's temperature.
- Temperature Control: They act as a barrier to help maintain a steady interior temperature, which is necessary to maintain perishable goods' quality. Strip curtains contribute to the maintenance of ideal conditions needed for the storage of food, medications, and other temperature-sensitive goods by preventing the entry of warmer air from the outside.
- Cost-effective: Strip curtains are a less expensive solution for controlling temperature than solid door installation. They are more affordable because they are simple to install and maintain.
- Simple Access: Without requiring employees or equipment to physically open a door, strip curtains make it simple for them to reach the cooler. Because it cuts down on the time needed to open and close doors, this is especially helpful in busy areas where operational efficiency is increased.
- Reduced Condensation and Ice building: Strip curtains can aid in preventing condensation and ice building around the cooler entry by preserving constant temperatures and minimizing the exchange of humid outside air with the dry, cool air within. This lowers the risk of slips and falls, making the workplace safer.
- Better Air Quality: By keeping dust, bugs, and other impurities out of the cooler, strip curtains can help keep the inside air purer. This is important in situations when the quality of the kept goods is impacted by the air purity.
- Versatility: Strip curtains can be used in a variety of settings, including those with harsh temperatures or hygienic requirements, because they are available in a range of materials and grades.
- Reduction of Noise: They can also aid in attenuating noise, resulting in a more comfortable and silent workplace, particularly in hectic industrial situations.
