Cooler Strip Door Applications
One of the most practical applications for strip doors is the separation of areas with significant temperature differences, such as walk-in coolers or freezers. Strip doors offer an effective means to control these environments by holding the cold in air, stopping the warm air from entering the cooler and reducing compressor running times thereby saving energy. The doors comply with Energy and Security Act of 2007 requiring strip doors on all newly manufactured walk-in coolers and freezers.

Durable PVC Strip Doors for Coolers
The vinyl strip doors used to provide climate control in walk-in coolers are infused with additives that make the PVC capable of withstanding colder environments without breaking or becoming brittle due to the cold. The PVC strip curtain used in coolers is known as Low-Temp, polar grade, refrigeration grade or USDA accepted PVC. Along with being more durable in colder environments, the Low-Temp PVC available at PVCStrip.com is accepted by the USDA for incidental food contact and can help streamline the operations of restaurants and food service industries where traffic in and out of the cooler is constant. Low-Temp PVC strip curtains and PVC strip doors will remain flexible in temperature ranging from -20 degrees Fahrenheit to +140 degrees Fahrenheit.
The cooler strips and strip curtains fit all standard size walk in coolers and freezers and are manufactured from 8 inch wide Low-Temp smooth PVC. The entire mounting system, from PVC strips to hardware, is all USDA accepted. Additionally, Low-Temp reinforced PVC is available at PVCStrip.com. The reinforced material is infused with nylon string to enhance durability and improve performance in the coldest environments. Low-Temp PVC strip doors also provide significant energy savings as the strips prevent air infiltration that occurs when a regular cooler or freezer door is constantly used or simply left open so that work flow is not hindered. Recent federal regulation established that all walk-in coolers manufactured after January 1, 2009 and meeting certain requirements must have doors in place that provide temperature separation and help conserve energy.
