Save energy/electricity

We are talking about that scarce commodity in South Africa … the one Eskom asks us to use less of. A strip curtain installation will result in less use of electricity to cool a cold room, freezer, office space or workplace down. Plastic strip curtains can help to maintain the required temperature and humidity in areas where climate control is critical, for example, wine cellars.

Reduce food spoilage

Constant temperature and humidity levels in your plant and cold room will assist you in maintaining the cold chain more effectively. This in turn will increase the shelf life of products because strip curtains prevent the loss of cold air.

Save on cleaning

One of the best known advantages of PVC strip curtains are that they reduce airflow, or draughts. This in turn prevents the influx of dust, pollutants, insects, fumes, odour, wind and even birds. Yes, lately we have seen more and more orders for bird control. They cause a mess which is unhygienic and unhealthy, leaving you with the associated cost of cleaning. This can be prevented.
