PRACTICAL ADVICE


HINTS AND TIPS FOR BUTCHERS Introducing the fi rst of an occasional new feature.


Craig T omas from Wolverhampton kicks us of with notes on rivets and replacing insulating strip curtains. (Do you have any similar ideas to share with fellow butchers?)


MAKING A NEW CURTAIN FROM A ROLL


roll out required length


Clip bars to end to act as template


Mark holes with coloured marker pen


Remove metal to show holes to drill out


Place ridged ruler over pvc and cut to length


Rivet all holes


Place onto hanging rail overlapping 1 part for full coverage


REMOVING RIVETS


If curtains are fixed on rails as above use method below Unhook from the rail and lay on a block of wood


It is easier to remove rivets by drilling out over pre-drilled holes in the wood using a 5mm metal drill bit as there is no risk of damaging anything when putting pressure on the drill.


Remember to do this away from any food areas as the metal can spread greatly from the drill bit.


If removing a curtain whilst still fixed in place remember to wear protective eyewear and ensure all metal is accounted for after


drilling out rivets.


IDENTIFYING RIVETS AND NORMAL USES


Left - Aluminium (general) slightly domed when installed


Centre - Stainless with reinforcement mainly where forklifts and heavy floor traffic is operating


Right - Stainless (high salt areas) flat squared off top when installed


STAINLESS STEEL RIVETS HAVE A GROOVED SHAFT AND A SQUARED OFF HEAD


ALUMINIUM RIVETS ARE DOMED
