Enhance Workplace Safety With Strip Curtains

A large percentage of workplace accidents occur at internal entry and exit points as well as at points of transition between various sections in a manufacturing or storage facility.

Wim Dessing, managing director of Apex Strip Curtains & Doors, says that by ensuring optimum visibility, the risks associated with the movement of vehicular traffic can be substantially reduced. “The use of transparent general purpose strip curtains to cordon off doorways and sections of a plant will go a long way to mitigate against risks and improve safety in the workplace” he says.

Apex General Purpose Strip Curtains are produced using specially formulated PVC material which is transparent for increased visibility. Individual strips incorporate the company’s patented Balledge® feature which, while ensuring an effective thermal seal at all times, allows the strips to part easily allowing unimpeded movement of personnel or vehicular traffic.

The Balledge® design comprises a reinforced edge on the border of each strip that provides extended life of the strips irrespective of the application in which they are used.

Apex General Purpose Strip Curtains are also HACCP compliant and play a vital role in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and chemical industries by preventing the ingress of unwanted elements. This requirement is critical in the light of issues such as cross-contamination. Dessing says that production facilities as well as retail outlets have come to depend on strip curtains to minimise the entrance of dust and heat while at the same time facilitating easy access for personnel and vehicular traffic.

Apex General Purpose Strip Curtains are commonly attached to an overhead hanging rail and provide a cost-effective and highly efficient way of separating atmospherically critical areas from temperature extremes and environmental pollutants. In addition to their obvious use at entrance and exit points, the industrial PVC strip curtains are also becoming increasingly popular as a means of temporarily partitioning areas within larger facilities.

“With an in-depth knowledge of the requirements under HACCP, our team is able to customise solutions that consider all design and regulatory elements within an operation,” says Dessing.
