Once a style is determined, calculate the height and length of the curtain necessary to cover the intended space. The length should generally be 15% wider than the length to be covered. For a more ruffled look, add 30% to the length. For example: you require 220" of length to cover your space. You would then multiply 220" x .15 and come up with 33"; add the 33" to the original 220" and you will need to order a length of 253". To establish the height of the curtain there are three measurements needed to be determined. Begin by measuring the height from the floor to the ceiling. For this example lets start with a 10 foot ceiling which is 120 inches in height. Next measure the height of the carrier and curtain tracking; this is usually 3"-4" combined. The third measurement to determine is the open space wanted below the bottom of the curtain; 12"-18" is typical. Take the ceiling height of 120" and subtract 12" for bottom clearance and 4" for tracking and carriers and this leaves a final curtain height of 104". Typical curtain sizes range from 72" to 234" wide and 84" to 108" long. Cubicle curtains can be made to order and customized in most cases. Healthcare facilities often have building and fire codes which must be met; check with an administrator before proceeding.
Majority of the manufacturers use FR nylon mesh fabric for the top portion with a snag-free, woven header, along with a grommet for providing support and ensuring durability.

The fabrics are classified as antibacterial materials, antimicrobial materials, botanical materials, bio-active materials, and eco-friendly materials. Such materials are normally used for cubicle curtains supplied to hospitals. Shower curtains would be made of normal polyester yarn fabrics, because the other types of fabrics would be too costly to warrant using them in home.
