Smooth VS Ribbed

Do you know what should go on your walk-in refrigeration units? All types of strip curtains serve a specific purpose. Adding ribbed curtains when not needed won’t cause harm to your refrigeration units, but you may not want to spend the extra dollars if they are not necessary.

2 Questions should be asked:

  1. What type of traffic is going through the doors?
    – Forklifts and Machine traffic should used ribbed curtain material
    -Foot traffic should use smooth strip curtain material
  2. Do the strip curtains need to be cleaned on a regular basis?
    -If yes then smooth strip curtain material would be the better choice because of its flat profile

Smooth Strip Curtain Properties:

  • Flat Surface
  • Crystal Clear – offering very good visibility
  • Ideal for Pedestrian Applications
  • Easy to Clean
  • Commonly Used for Foodservice or More Technical Applications

Ribbed Strip Curtain Properties:

  • Ribbed Profile
  • Good for Heavy Traffic Applications
  • Ribs Work Like Bumpers – Protect from heavy loads
  • Ideal for Forklifts or Other Machinery Going In & Out
  • Ribbed Strip Curtain Material Needs to Be Replaced When Scratches Effect Visibility – When safety starts to be of a concern

Anti-Insect PVC Strips protect against ZIKA Virus

Many Companies (including restaurants, hotels, farms, refrigerated warehouses, food manufacturing facilities, etc.) are using Hinged Parts Anti-Insect Yellow PVC Strips to repel mosquitoes away from the door opening and prevent insects from entering their facility.  This exclusive product contains Citronella, a naturally occurring oil found in lemongrass, which gives off a specific smell that mosquitoes (and other flying insects) hate.  Mosquitoes will not land on the curtain due to the scent.  Also, the yellow color inhibits the insect’s ability to detect light, preventing the attraction that usually occurs after dark.  To a mosquito, this shade of yellow is opaque.

As the ZIKA virus spreads into the United States, it will be more critical than ever to protect employees and customers from mosquitoes in companies across all industry sectors. Our Anti-Insect Yellow PVC Strips provide an extra layer of security at the back door to keep mosquitoes out of the facility.

Is Your Temperature Rising …or Falling For that Matter?

Replace Your Cold Control


If your refrigerator is freezing food or is not cold enough, you may need to replace the cold control thermostat.The temperature controller on a commercial refrigerator or freezer is a vital component to maintaining food-safe holding temperatures. If it begins to malfunction, finding the right replacement quickly is of utmost importance.

Thermostats are typically found inside the refrigerator and have a knob that allows users to adjust the temperature setting. Once a user sets the desired temperature, the thermostat maintains that temperature by controlling the flow of electricity to the compressor. If the thermostat is the brain, the compressor is the heart of the operation, responsible for pumping the refrigerant through the coils.

There are two types of temperature controls used in commercial refrigeration:
1. Thermostatic (either an air sensing type or evaporator coil sensing type)
2. Low pressure control

So what happens when these are not functioning properly?

A commercial refrigeration thermostat can fail in two ways: in an open position or a closed position.

If the thermostat fails in the open position, the unit will not run at all. To check this, remove the screws from the evaporator housing (make sure the unit is unplugged or the breaker is off) and pull the housing down. Locate the wires attached to the thermostat and remove them. Connect the two wires together and tape with electrical tape. Turn on the breaker or plug the unit back in. If the unit runs, replace the thermostat.

If the thermostat fails in the closed position, the unit will run all the time. Running constantly will cause the evaporator to freeze up, restricting the airflow and causing the temperature to rise. Use the same procedure described above to test the unit and replace the thermostat if necessary. Also be sure to defrost the evaporator before turning the unit back on.

Hinged Parts selection of commercial refrigerator controls includes both digital and mechanical styles to match the one that came with your refrigerator or freezer. Visit us Online @ HingedParts.com or give us a call @ 844.292.6694.
