Strip Doors & Curtains
What Is a Strip Door for Walk-In Coolers and Freezers?
Air doors or PVC air curtains are devices used to separate two spaces from each other, particularly at an exterior entrance. An air door is commonly used as walk-in cooler or freezer doors, usually to keep cold temperature and even food odors and aromas from escaping the refrigeration unit. Commercial air doors are usually used in between varying climate-controlled zones as, for example, in walk-in freezers or coolers with cold air inside the units and relatively warmer air outside.
Other uses of air doors, aside from keeping inside the smells of food items and cold temperature, are to keep away insects like flies and other pests as well as dust from getting inside the walk-in freezer and cooler, thereby keeping the inside of the unit cold, clean, and sanitary.
The effectiveness of walk-in cooler commercial air doors, particularly in separating two different climate zones, is largely dependent on how strong the blower fan is. A good-quality fan is important when used in tandem with an air door because the entire operation of keeping commercial air doors functional largely determines how efficient a walk-in cooler will be especially when it comes to keeping the unit cooled.
What Is a Plastic Strip Door for Walk-In Refrigerators and Freezers?
Strip door curtains are usually made of flexible and transparent PVC strips (made of a kind of plastic) that are designed to part just enough when a person passes through. This design allows easy passage for food-service crew and staff especially while they are carrying food and beverage items or lugging heavy boxes/sacks of ingredients, all the while helping prevent cold air from escaping the walk-in cooler or freezer.
All of this is possible because PVC strip doors fall instantly back into place, affording maximum efficiency as an air seal. This makes plastic strip doors perfect for use with walk-in coolers and freezers.
