Factory Assembled Strip Doors are made with the highest quality material available on the market today!
Transparent strip doors are used in areas where traffic through a doorway creates energy loss, encourages foreign matter to enter, or causes time-consuming operation of doors. Rotary's PVC strip doors are a series of transparent, flexible, vinyl strips permanently placed in doorways to create a barrier. PVC strip doors permit unrestricted movement between areas while aiding in efficient passage, climate control, and noise reduction. They also act as a deterrent for entry of unwanted elements such as dirt, dust, insects, birds, and fumes. Rotary strip doors are custom designed according to intended use, whether it is an interior personnel door or an exterior freight door. Depending on the application, the strip door material is available in different strip widths, thicknesses, and overlaps. A wide variety of specialty strip materials are also available.
The door opening height is important because the strips are concave, which means that they curve in toward each other when hanging. When set up properly, this feature causes the strips to lie against each other to make an effective seal. The problem which occurs when the strips are hung too high is that the overlap decreases from top to bottom. The strips will then become horseshoe-shaped at the bottom, which will result in little or no overlap.
We also offer bulk PVC strip material rolls or by the foot in less than roll quantities.
Available in a variety of sizes.

|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.|

|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.|
Don't be mislead 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.
