A question we receive often is about which type of flexible PVC strip is right for a customer’s application: Smooth or DuraRib?
At Clearway we make two different type of PVC strip profiles:
– Smooth strips have a completely flat, smooth surface. They’re made in our extrusion process with very smooth polishing rollers which allow for a crystal clear smooth appearance. Smooth strips allow for very good visibility, especially when they are new. Also they are ideal for pedestrian traffic applications. They are easier to clean and therefore very popular with food service and more technical applications.
– DuraRib strips have our exclusive ribbed profile, which is designed for use in heavy traffic applications. These ribs work like bumpers to take some of the abuse from the loads passing through the doorway. This can be important when the application uses forklifts, lift trucks, and other machinery.
– Will the strips need to be cleaned regularly?
Smooth strips may be easier to clean, due to their flat profile.
– Standard DuraRib
– Low Temp DuraRib
– Anti-Insect Yellow DuraRib
– Stop-Bac DuraRib
