How to Choose the Right Strip Door for Your Application

The size and width of your strip door varies by the overall door size and the traffic levels. For light pedestrian traffic, 6" or 8" wide strips are common. Larger door openings with high traffic levels may require 12" or 16" wide strips.

  • Standard Clear PVC strips are used for normal and light fork lift traffic in temperatures above freezing.
  • Offset Double Ribbed PVC strips are used in high traffic forklift areas and temperatures above freezing.
  • Low Temperature and Low Temperature Ribbed PVC strips are used for coolers, freezers, and exterior applications with temperatures as low as -20 degrees F.
  • Welding Grades of PVC strip (Amber, Aztec Red, Charcoal Gray, Dark Green) are used in welding applications and added UV protection.
  • Anti-Static Clear PVC strips are used in Clean Room, computer and data center applications.
  • Insect Control Yellow PVC Strips, either flat or ribbed, are used to deter flying insects.

Strip Door Mounting Hardware

TMI offers the broadest range of PVC strip door mounting hardware for nearly every application. TMI's versatile mounting hardware can be mounted in the doorjamb (in-jamb mount), on the wall above the opening (face of wall mount), or mounted around a sectional or rolling steel garage door (overhead door mount).

For standard door applications, our Patented Save-T Loc® style and traditional nut and bolt styles are available for in jamb, face of wall, or universal mounting. Sizes are stocked in full foot increments from 3' wide up to 10' wide. TMI also offers Piano Hinged hardware, commonly used in applications with traffic that moves closely to the height of the doorjamb. This style includes a hinge that allows the hardware to swing in each direction.
