Vinyl Strip Door Material


Vinyl Strip Door Material

VERILON Strip Doors are used throughout industrial, commercial and institutional structures, both indoors and outdoors.  We can see through it, walk through it and drive through it. Made up of a series of overlapping flexible VERILON vinyl strips that are transparent, odorless and non-toxic. The strips part only enough to let a person or truck pass through. The balance of the strips remain closed with the parted strips falling right back into place automatically after passage, ensuring minimum loss of expensive heated or cooled air. VERILON Vinyl Strips are tough, sturdy - able to withstand the impact of heavy equipment and constant use.

Ribbed Verilon Vinyl Strips provide maximum structural strength and energy savings. Reinforcing ribs on each side interlock for a tighter thermal seal to prolong the life of the vinyl. Reinforcing ribs also prolong the see-thru clarity of vinyl by reducing marring and scratching on the strip surface which cuts down the need for replacement. Ribbed Verilon Vinyl Strips are ideal for heavy traffic areas.

A recent test performed by U.S. Testing Co., Inc. proved that Verilon Ribbed Vinyl Strips outperformed other brands repeatedly in strength and tear resistance. 

Energy Saver: The VERILON Vinyl Strip Door reduces the amount of air that can escape while a person or vehicle passes through the opening. In summer, this keeps filtered and conditioned cooled air inside and reduces humidity, while in the winter, it prevents frigid air from entering and costly heated air from escaping. It reduces compressor running times in walk-in coolers and freezers by as much as 45 percent, saving additional energy costs.

Pollution Seal: The VERILON Vinyl Strip Door cuts the cost of operating air-filtration systems by sealing out dust, dirt, fumes, smoke and airborne contaminants. Removing these particulates also minimizes clean-up costs, enhances the plant's appearance and will help you meet OSHA employee protection standards!

Acoustical Control: Sound transmission is reduced considerably whether the VERILON Vinyl Strip Door is used as a door, a room divider or both. Its ability to control acoustics and dampen noise can often help a facility meet OSHA noise requirements at a fraction of the cost of building a sound-deadening structure. When used around noisy machinery, the transparent VERILON strips offer high visibility and easy access to the equipment.

Standard Strip

This universal VERILON Vinyl Strip is used in nine out of 10 installations. Available in four thicknesses and four strip widths to meet the needs of light-duty to heavy-duty applications, indoors and outdoors. Meets CPAI-84 and California State Fire Marshal Requirements for flame resistance. Operating temperature from -10°F to 140°F. Meets USDA, FDA and Agriculture Canada requirements! Available in flat and ribbed.

Low Temperature Strip

Specially fabricated with FDA approved ingredients for use by the food processing industry. This special VERILON Vinyl Strip helps sustain sub-zero temperatures while retaining its dimensional stability remains flexible from -50°F to 140°F. Meets USDA, FDA and Agriculture Canada requirements! The Vinyl Strip approved by the National Sanitation Foundation! This is the only VERILON Vinyl Strip for freezer use. Available in flat and ribbed. 

Welding Strip

Blocks over 99% of UV radiation. Designed for welding booths as well as spraying, grinding, and sand blasting enclosures. This VERILON Vinyl Strip is fire retardant, highly transparent, noise deadening - and prevents dangerous near UV and UV radiation from penetrating adjacent areas.

Advantages

Easily installed

Low Maintenance - Individual strips can be replaced quickly and inexpensively. Periodic cleaning is recommended. For best results, use a professional vinyl cleaner such as Verilon Vinyl Cleaner which has been specifically formulated for this purpose.

Visibility - Provides additional safety and can facilitate traffic by allowing on-coming pedestrians and vehicles to see through the transparent strip.

Adaptability - Can cover nearly any shape or size of opening (up to 25 feet high) and virtually any width. They can also accommodate openings as small as two feet square, such as for a conveyor.

Energy Saving - Heavy primary doors can remain open during high-traffic periods, reducing wear while saving energy costs and improving productivity.

Pest Control - Minimizes the chances of birds, flying insects and rodents entering the building.

Unlimited Uses

The wide variety of uses for VERILON Vinyl Strip Doors and enclosures challenges the imagination. They offer unlimited applications both indoors and outdoors in industrial, commercial and institutional facilities.

Applications

Shipping and receiving closures on loading docks, Traffic doors, Conveyor openings,  Craneway, enclosures, Temperature control between rooms, Partitions between buildings, Storage area enclosures, Cooler or freezer secondary doors, Inside doors on refrigerated trucks, Spray booths, Welding screens, partitions and booths, Car wash exits, Sound barriers and noise-reducing enclosures for machinery, Hood enclosures for fume containment.

All three types of VERILON Vinyl Strip are UV stabilized to prevent yellowing. VERILON Vinyl Strips are resistant to most inorganic acids, bases and salts. Since some organic solvents can affect vinyl, user should test material for specific applications.

As a contaminate barrier, our plastic strip doors are designed with a specific and unique overlapping structure that forms a very precise seal along the edges of the free hanging strips. Secondly, the opening that is created as traffic passes through the barrier is at an absolute minimum, when compared to that of a standard mechanical door structure. These two attributes of our vinyl strip doors work hand in hand to minimize the level of gas, the level of particulate, fume, and other contamination in the separated area.

For use in a refrigerated environment, Verilon vinyl strip doors minimize the amount of warm air entering the area and the amount of cold are escaping. You can potentially lower your overall energy cost, while maintaining the stability and uniformity of the refrigerated area and products.

For operations that pose a potential risk from debris, near UV and UV radiation or sound pollution, such as welding, grinding or sandblasting, Verilon vinyl strip doors are the perfect solution. They are constructed from thick, high density strips of vinyl that are available in various dimensions and colors. This level of versatility with our plastic strip doors allows you to design a custom solution for your specific need, whether isolating welding operations, containing particulate debris or deadening sound.

People, equipment and objects can easily transition from one area to the next, without the need to open a door. Additionally, our strip doors offer 100% visibility, so there is never a question as to what's on the other side of the barrier, which greatly reduces the chance of a collision and subsequent property damage and injury liability.
