3 Important Ways PVC Strip Curtains Can Cut Down on Your Energy Bills

There are plenty of benefits that come along with hanging PVC strip curtains in your working environment, and the ability to cut down on your energy bills is probably the most compelling. In fact, this happens in multiple ways. When businesses hang PVC strip curtains in their cargo or storage areas, they're commonly stunned to discover just how much lower their monthly utility costs get.

Here are just three ways PVC strip curtains can curtail your use of power.

1. Provide Excellent Temperature Control

First and foremost, PVC strip curtains are excellent at keeping rooms as cold as they need to be. People commonly assume that having strip curtains instead of a door will result in a drop in energy efficiency; after all, a door is a whole lot more solid. However, your strip curtains will create a perfect seal between two areas, so you can keep one at a lower temperature without affecting the other.

The best thing is that strip curtains help ensure that cold air stays where it is when someone needs to come in. Because you slip through instead of opening a door right up, the cold air doesn't tend to rush out upon opening, and people can get in and out a lot faster. As if that wasn't convincing enough, the fact that there aren't any quick drops in temperature will reduce wear on your cooling systems, ensuring they continue to run efficiently. If you really need to keep a space chilly, you can even opt for low temperature reinforced PVC, which is idea for maintaining freezing temperatures.

2. Allows Light to Shine Through

Most people will only consider the cooling costs that can be saved by adding PVC strip curtains, but you're also going to be able to save significantly when it comes to lightning-related expenses. Because PVC curtains are usually transparent, or at least semi-transparent, they provide excellent visibility and let sunlight stream into more closed-off rooms. With natural light entering, your employees won't need to rely as heavily on artificial light sources and the energy that they consume.

3. Restricts Movement of Pollutants

From dust and dirt to smoke and fumes, industrial areas can produce a lot of pollutants, and those will need to be filtered out of the environment. By using PVC strip curtains, you can cheaply restrict the movement of such pollutants, meaning that expensive filtration systems won't need to be placed in as many rooms. That's obviously going to offer substantial savings when it comes to upfront costs, and you'll also cut down on the energy costs associated with running such systems.
