How to measure for an order or quote.

Whatever type of strip curtain you’re interested in, it’s essential you get right measurements before making a purchase or requesting a quote. The measuring points are not the same for all door types and / or cabinet formats.

General Pedestrian Doors

Height (H): Measure from the underside of the door lintel / frame all the way to the ground.
Width (W) : Measure between the two inner side edges of the door frame.

Roller Shutter Doors

Height (H): With the door open, measure from just below the door spool housing all the way to the ground.
Width (W) : Measure between the outer edges of the door guides.

Sectional Overhead Doors

Height (H) : Measure from the bottom of the door runner curve, all the way to the ground.
Width (W) : Measure from the outside edges of the door runners.

Concertina Doors

Height (H) : Measure from the top of the door guide all the way to the ground.
Width (W) : Measure between the outer edges of the left and right doors.

Note: If you don’t normally open the doors fully, a more economical solution is to have curtains covering just the open area. To do this, measure between the two inside edges of the partly opened doors – Alt Width (AW) – and give us this measurement instead of Width (W).

Multi-Deck Chiller Cabinets

Opening Drop (D) : Measure from the underside of the top fascia down to the top of the base sill.
Width (W) : Measure between the two inner edges.

Serve-Over Deli Counters

Opening Drop (D) : Measure from the underside of the top shelf down to the back edge of the serving shelf.
Width (W) : Measure between the two inner edges.
