I am often asked for a simple but cost effective way of reducing heat loss from cold rooms. The answer is straightforward – plastic strip curtains.

Plastic PVC strip curtains are often found in cold rooms, industrial walk-in fridges and freezers. The idea is that they act as a barrier to keep the cold in and the heat out when the doors are open. They have excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties, minimising temperature variations resulting in efficiency through energy savings
They can also be used in doorways to separate working areas in factories or as a health and safety method preventing insects from entering, adding effective pest control to heat retention.

External PVC strip curtains are also available. These are intended for outdoor use and so are heavy duty, with greater overlap and usually more weighty.

All the curtains we recommend are low maintenance and easily installed. By far, their greatest advantage is the amount of money that can be saved due to the reduced heat loss.

I have no doubt that the cost of installing curtains will be recouped within three months in terms of energy saving.
