Rotary Products can recommend the optimum strip door for every application.
The height and conditions of use for a strip door determine the overlap, material thickness,

and width to do the job .


STRIP DOOR MATERIAL SELECTION CHART

STANDARD STRIP MATERIAL

The standard strip door material is a clear, vinyl material available in strip widths of 6", 8", 12", 16" and 48". The material selected for Rotary Products strip doors has outstanding clarity and stabilizers added to the raw vinyl compound that helps reduce fading and yellowing due to ultraviolet light. The standard strip material is easily cleaned by using water and household detergent.

RIBBED STRIP MATERIAL

The ribbed strip door material has a unique, triangular shaped ribbing which helps prevent scratching of the strip material surface due to heavy use from truck and cargo traffic. An added benefit is that the ribs on both sides of the material add to energy savings effectiveness by creating small pockets of air space as insulation. Another benefit of the ribbed material is that the ribs reduce the contact between the surfaces of the strips creating less static electricity.

WELD STRIP MATERIAL

The weld strip material is designed for doors enclosing areas where welding is being performed. Its tinted color helps reduce the incidental effects of bright, ultra violet light from welding arcs. Sparks fly off the thick material, yet it is transparent enough that supervisors and others can view welding area.

USDA STRIP MATERIAL

USDA Vinyl strip is a material that meets federal government requirements for incidental contact with meat, poultry and dairy products. It is available in reinforced vinyl strips which function at temperatures as low as -30 degrees F.

ORANGE SAFETY STRIP

A bright orange vinyl safety strip material can be used to outline hazardous areas as well as marking door jamb edges and high-traffic areas.

STRIP MATERIAL COMPARISON-DON'T BE MISLED BY THE SPECS COMPARED TO THE COST...ARE THE SPECS TO BE BELIEVED?

          "Buyer Beware" is a fitting statement when it comes to purchasing vinyl strip doors.  Be cautious when comparing cost between  manufacturers.  With careful investigation you will find that not all manufacturer strips meet their stated specifications.
           In checking the specifications on some of one competitor's vinyl strips, it was found that there is a significant difference between published and actual dimensions.  The competitor's standard smooth vinyl .080" was actually .068" thick, and their .120 was only .105" thick.  Even with normal manufacturing tolerance these products were still at least 10% lighter than their specifications.  Their standard ribbed for 12" is suppose to be an industry standard thickness of .110" but actually came in at .086", which is over 20% thinner than accepted industry standard.  This thinner vinyl will decrease the effectiveness of the strip doors in keeping in conditioned air and keeping out unwanted elements.
           When you consider that you are actually buying your strip doors by weight, you can see that even though the "size" is the same, when the thickness of the vinyl is less there is a difference in the weight of the strips.  Thus, the thinner the vinyl the lower the price.  So if you are comparing our .080" with some other manufacturers .080" (that are not within normal industry standard) you may think you are getting the same product for less, but you are really getting less for less.  This would be the equivalent of buying a steak on sale in a meat market and the butcher who is weighing it has his thumb on the scale.  You are not getting what you're paying for!
           Also, because of some of our competitors manufacturing process, some strips are inferior and suffer from flaws like flow marks and other imperfections which impair clarity of their strips, decrease eye appeal and call into question the suitability for use as a strip door.  Not only are you getting poor quality products, but these problems combined with lighter weight vinyl may end up not performing up to your standards.
