What kind of pest control curtain is right for my business?


No matter what industry you work in, pests have the power to ruin your reputation and destroy your business. This is especially true if you work in the food service industry and it is essential you take the proper precautions to ensure your premises remain pest-free. Below we breakdown the different kinds of pest control curtains to help you determine which one is right for your business.

• Insect strip curtains (premium fly mesh)

Ideal for doorways and windows, these curtains can be made to size by a manufacturer and prevent flies and other insects from entering your building. As the curtains are made from black suntex nylon mesh with 1mm holes, even the smallest of insects are kept at bay. The material also has antimicrobial properties which prevent stains and bacteria from forming. Fly infestations can be particularly hard to remove so it is important to take the necessary precautions to keep them out of your indoor areas. Each strip is finished with a small padded weight to keep the curtains in the optimum position and helps to reduce heat transmission.

• Hook-on bird control curtains

These PVC strip curtains are an effective and affordable way to prevent birds from entering large gaps in warehouses and loading bays. Simply hook on the curtains to a curtain rail hanging system above an open space and they will keep any location free from birds or any other flying pests. The choice of the hanging system depends on how large or heavy-duty the curtain needs to be (e.g. if forklifts or just pedestrians need to be able to pass through the area.)

• Insect yellow strip curtains

These curtains offer PVC strip door and window protection. The yellow colour deters insects and prevents them from entering your building and contaminating your produce.

Perforated PVC strip curtains

A perforated plastic door strips curtain is an affordable alternative to an insect mesh curtain and is ideal for preventing pests from entering areas that require ventilation. They ensure the location they are protecting remains at its correct temperature whilst preventing larger flying pests from gaining access. Ventilation is created through verticle slotted holes which run down the length of the curtains, fresh air is allowed in and larger flying pests are kept out! These strips can be easily cut to size after they have been manufactured, unlike insect strip curtains.
