Retaining heat is a big concern in a lot of businesses
Especially where you have a large area to work with, such as in a warehouse, it can be a real struggle to keep heat where you need it. Here’s why you should be looking at PVC strip doors as an essential purchase.
Why should you use PVC curtains rather than normal doors / doorways?
First off, let’s have a look at what happens when you use a normal door to fill in the gap. This will normally be kept closed, which is all well and good. However, in a busy working environment, it is likely that you will have employees coming in and out of the space often. This means that the door will be opened and closed frequently.
Every time the door opens, some of the heat escapes. This means that a little bit of the energy that you use to create the heat escapes too. Not only does this mean that you will need to use more energy to create more heat, but it also could mean that the overall temperature drops in the meantime. In a controlled environment, this is a huge problem.
With people walking in and out constantly, there may also be times when the door is left open. An employee or visitor could forget to close the door, or may not be aware of how urgently it needs to be closed. When in a rush, it’s certainly possible to push a door to rather than fully closing it. This will leave a gap which will cause problems with heat consistently disappearing over time.
Using PVC strip doors
So, what happens when you use PVC strip doors? Firstly, the doors will be see-through, meaning that people may not need to cross through them as often if they can simply look through. They also don’t have an opening and shutting mechanism – rather, you can slip through between each of the strips if you would like to.
Less heat escapes when using the PVC strips, as the material is stronger and will retain the energy inside the room more easily. The “door” will also be open for a much shorter duration of time, which means less energy escaping every time someone enters or leaves the area.
It’s not possible to forget to shut this kind of door, or to accidentally leave the door ajar. As soon as someone has passed through, the strips will fall back into place, regaining the perfect coverage they were providing a moment before.
Overall, far less heat and energy will escape any time someone uses a PVC strip door as opposed to a regular door. When replacing a gap which was not blocked in any way previously, the difference can be phenomenal.
