For the purpose of ordering your door product online with Strip Doors, a regular door has a height of 3000mm or less and can be up to 1800mm wide.
For door dimensions that fall outside these measurements, i.e. your door is taller than 3000mm and wider than 1800mm it’s easy to simply arrange and order via our Request A Quote form.
Colour selection is generally for visual appeal or brand association, but in some applications, the following colour recommendations may help:
Coloured or tinted strips are only available as 75mm wide and 1.5mm thickness with flat or ribbed surfaces. Clear strips are available in all widths, thicknesses and surfaces.
PVC strips are 75mm, 100mm, 150mm, 200mm or 300mm wide.
PVC strips are 1.5mm, 2mm, 3mm or 5mm thick.
The ribbed strip surface is more durable to impacts as it provides a thicker impact point than flat PVC. The ribs also help to reduce drag, scratches and general wear.
Further, ribbed strips are highly recommended for humid, wet environments and for cold room, freezer and low-temperature applications. Moisture and condensation can cause flat PVC strips to stick or freeze together. In short, the ribs stop strips from sticking together, therefore allowing easier and safer traffic flows for these applications.
Although flat strip surfaces may stick together with moisture and are less resistant to damage, the clean slick look and high visibility appeals for open fridge displays and product displays.
PVC Grade is important when you’re looking for a strip door for cold room or freezer applications.
Depending on your cooling needs, there are two types of hard-wearing PVC strip material available for wide temperature ranges:
Normal Grade PVC is rated 2°C to +50°C
Freezer Grade PVC is rated 5°C to -50°C
Freezer grade PVC contains special plasticizers that prevent it from cracking and breaking at extremely low temperatures. This PVC strip is available in a clear strip of 100mm, 150mm, 200mm or 300mm widths.
Head sections are generally selected based on your strip door’s application.
We have three different head sections or hanging systems available:
1. Removable aluminum head section, 45mm (h) x 20mm (d)
A popular choice for retail shop fronts, domestic applications and cool rooms; strip doors with this type of head section are easy to hang and easily removed at the end of each day for storage. This head section is made of anodized aluminum with the PVC door strips securely stapled to a rigid PVC insert. Mounting this strip door to your doorway is via figure-of-eight holes in the head section that precisely fit over mounting screws provided.
2. Fixed or bolted aluminum head section, 65mm (h) x 40mm (d) x 3mm (thick)
Ideal for strip doors spanning larger doorways with heavy traffic and, therefore, may require replacement of individual damaged or worn strips. This head section is made of right-angled anodized aluminum with PVC door strips securely bolted on using stainless steel nuts, bolts and washers, that allow for easy replacement of individual strips. The strip door is generally attached to the doorway using suitable fixings for the mounting surface and weight of the strip door, such as rivets or tech screws.
3. Hook-on stainless steel head section, 30mm (h) x 30mm (d)
A sturdy, easy-to-use hanging system for heavy-duty strip doors. A good option for strip doors that need frequent removal for cleaning—simply ‘hook on’ and ‘hook off’—or for regular strip replacements due to heavy motorized traffic. Furthermore, the stainless-steel construction is resistant to the harsh cleaning agents used in some industries. These PVC strips come sandwiched between two hook-on stainless steel plates that neatly and easily hang over strong hooks on the stainless-steel head section. The strip door is generally attached using suitable fixings for the mounting surface and weight of the strip door, such as rivets or tech screws.
Your order will be shipped within 1 business day of placing your order. The delivery cost will be calculated exactly when you check out, based on where you live and the size of your door. As a rule, the delivery cost to Metro areas will be approximately $25.00 for the average size door.
If you’re not 100% satisfied with your strip door purchase, please contact us within 7 days of receiving your order to discuss whether you qualify for a full refund or exchange. We cannot accept returns of custom-made strip doors. If you ordered the wrong size, colour or other component for your strip door, we’re happy to help you rectify this. Out-of-pocket expenses and return shipping will be covered by you. Any product you return must be in the same condition you received it and in the original packaging.
