Once the tracking layout is finalized, then determine the number of carriers or rollers needed. Carriers are just that, they carry the curtain along the tracking. The standard style consists of a nylon block and wheels with a swiveling chain and hook attached. A breakaway version is available which acts contrary to its name; the carrier does not break, it flexes. This allows the curtain to detach from the carrier rather than damage the curtain or carrier. Curtain carriers should be spaced every 6" on the curtain. If your curtain is 242" in length, you will want to have 41 carriers. Drop chains and PVC drop strips are available for use when ventilation space is required and a mesh top curtain is not an option. A drop chain is 18" long with custom lengths available; it is constructed of nickel-plated steel. A PVC drop strip is 18" long with a hole on top which slips over the curtain carrier; a plated hook at the bottom connects to the cubicle curtain. Prior to installation, the job should be laid out on the floor in its intended position with all fittings properly located. This will prove valuable in determining whether all required parts are on hand and ensures proper location and placement.
If you have just bought a house or you are thinking of re-decorating your home, consider the options presented to you by a number of different curtain types and their functions. With correct curtain choice, it is possible to change the look and feel of a room completely. Curtains are an important feature of your rooms style and feel. Curtains are no longer just used for blocking cold, keeping warmth inside, blocking out light and creating a private atmosphere. Now curtains are used in a decorative manner as well as practical functions. Depending on the window you need to dress, curtains can become a focal point of an entire room or frame a view from the window. Interior decorators use colour, style and new materials to help create an excellent looking window curtain.
Quality curtain tracking is made of 16 gauge extruded aluminum and is typically sold in eight foot lengths. If shorter lengths are required, tracking may be easily cut down with a hacksaw. Curves pre-bent to 45 deg. and 90 deg. are available for applications requiring the curtain to bend around a room; curves are 2 feet by 2 feet and bent at a 12 inch radius. Curtain tracking can be attached to solid or false/drop down ceilings using screws or clips. Attaching the tracking to a solid ceiling requires the use of screws; screw directly into ceiling studs whenever possible. Holes will need to be drilled into the tracking at each attaching point. It is not always possible to screw into a stud. When this occurs, the use of an anchor is necessary. An anchor is pressed into a pre-drilled hole. As a screw is inserted into the anchor; the anchor expands and grabs firmly to the ceiling. Drop down/false ceilings require clips which are attached to the ceiling grid. There is a hole tapped into each clip that accepts a screw from the curtain tracking. These clips should be placed every 30".
