Swivel hinge polar ribbed PVC curtain strips should only be used in freezer environments. In warmer locations, the extra plasticiser can make the PVC feel ‘sticky’ which can make a curtain more difficult to pass through. The strip’s surface has multiple raised ribs running along its length (approx 2mm deep). These reduce the level of surface contact when items pass through a curtain. The ribs also give extra protection to the PVC surface, helping to minimise scuffs and scratches and helping to prolong its clarity. This extra durability makes it the ideal choice for areas of high wear and tear where pallet trucks and forklifts need to move quickly and freely between freezer areas.
We can supply new and replacement curtain strips using polargrade ribbed PVC for all swivel hinge rail set ups. Priced by the linear metre, cut to your required length and punched ready to hang according to your chosen strip overlap.
Available in: 300mm x 3mm (Medium / Heavy Duty) : Recommended max height: 5m

Other key facts: Highly flexible. High impact resistance. Highly effective a noise barrier. Competitively priced. Sourced from highly reputable UK manufacturers / suppliers to ensure best quality.
Hanging tip: Strips are supplied rolled-up. When first hung this may result in the base of the strips curling upwards slightly. This residual curl will naturally fall out given time. (It may take longer in cold conditions.) If possible, before hanging, unroll and leave to flatten out overnight. If this isn’t practical, try reverse rolling the strips or applying gentle heat.

Longevity: PVC strip is considered a consumable product. How fast it’s consumed is beyond any manufacturer’s or supplier’s control. Its lifespan will be dictated by where it’s used, what type of traffic might move through it and how carefully (or aggressively) such traffic does so. We have some customers who replace their PVC annually… others who’ve had the same for many, many years.
