Cooler and freezer strip curtains can be mounted on the wall or within the door jamb itself. Certain considerations should be thought through when looking into where your strip curtains should be mounted (like obstructions).
Hinged Parts universal mounting hardware can be used in both jamb mounting applications as well as wall mounting applications (depending on which way you place the screw wholes).
On a wall mount application, the strip curtain hangs above the jamb on the wall itself and overlaps the opening on
both sides as well as above the door. This mounting type has extra coverage creating a stronger barrier keeping additional warm air out. This is the best mounting option when taking energy efficiency into consideration or if the curtain will be accompanied by another door like a cooler or freezer.
Exact dimensions of the opening are not generally needed for this mounting application. When considering a strip curtain kit for a wall mount application roughly 4″ are added to the width dimensions (2″ per side) and 6″-10″ to the height (depending n how high you are planning on mounting the curtain). Ex. A standard wall mount curtain kit is 40″ x 84″. This is perfect for an opening that is 36″ x 70+ (since the strips themselves are trim-able).
In a jamb mount the mounting hardware is installed in the top part of the door jamb. The curtains hang directly within the door opening and do not overlap on the side walls or top.
Exact dimensions of the door opening is crucial for this application. The jamb mount application is usually utilized in warehouses, loading docks, or when there is an obstruction such as lights or other hardware and the wall mount is not able to be used.
