An extra pair of hands When you are learning how to hang curtains large or heavy it is very useful to have someone standing at ground level holding the curtain taking the weight. This enables you to hang the curtain onto your track or rod with ease. How many hooks will you need? Well for curtains with standard pencil pleat tape you will need a hook every 4th pocket. For bucram headed curtains you will need 1 for every pleat or goblet and one for each end. Preparing your bucram headed curtains prior to hanging. The good news other than putting in the pin hooks setting them down 1/2 inch from the top of your curtain. there is no more prepping to do.
Suspension tubing may be used with high ceilings or if existing obstructions prevent the curtain tracking from being mounted directly to the ceiling. Suspension tubing is available in 8 foot lengths and made with 7/8" O.D. hollow aluminum tubing. Suspension tubing can be attached directly to solid ceilings with a ceiling flange or via ceiling clips to a drop down/false ceiling. A screw insert is then placed in the bottom of the suspension tubing allowing the curtain tracking to be attached. Suspension tubing should be placed every six feet and the tracking ends can be attached to a wall with a nylon wall bracket. Anodized aluminum splicing clamps join multiple pieces of tracking to ensure proper alignment of the channels. This will allow the carriers/rollers to move freely from one piece of tracking to the next. Clean and smooth the ends of each piece of track before assembly; burrs may cause the carriers/rollers to hang up.
Theses overlap arms allow one curtain to pass and overlap the other curtain by 2 or 3 inches. Thus giving you total privacy. So whats the big problem? So wheres the problem? the problem is that these arms are not very strong. This means when you start to hang a medium to heavy curtain. Especially without someone carrying the weight they sag and twist or break completely. Avoiding the problem! So how do we avoid that when hanging from the center of the track or rod and working outwards. Very simple really, if you need 2 hooks to go in the overlap arm then count in to the 3rd hook and hook this into the first real glider or ring. Leaving the 1st and 2nd curtain hooks to just hang in space. continue hanging your curtain working from the middle outwards. Thats how to hang curtains my way (the best way obviously "wink") Then once you have reached the ends of your track or rod (removing any surplus gliders or rings). You go back to the middle and hook in the last couple of curtain hooks into the overlap arms. So avoiding putting to much weight on them.
