Curtains enjoy a place of honor whether it is a beautiful house, elegant mansion, ritzy restaurant or opulent hotel or a shop/beauty parlor. You name it and they are there. You will find use of curtains right from the olden times. Whether they are there can be due to different reasons. It can either be for functional purposes such as to afford protection from elements such as wind, red - hot sun or winter snows or purely as an outlet for mans creative spirits and décor. Whatever may be the reason curtains and their rods have been a part of human existence and will continue to be there for ages to come. We can broadly categorize curtains in two ways - by style and by fabric. While curtains are used at different places for different purposes, they tend to be categorized by the use they are going to be put into. You can use only a plastic or chemical quoted plastic curtain in a hospital or shower stall where it come into contact with water frequently. Likewise, you cannot use stylish or fancy curtains in your bed room or drawing room.
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.
The curtain fabrics are supplied by nearly all the manufacturers in different colors and patterns so that they match the interior of the rooms where the cubicle curtains are used. The specifications of the fabrics and their compliance to fire retardant standards of the state government should be studied and confirmed before placing orders for cubicle curtains. Curtain Track and Curtain Carriers The cubicle curtain tracking is done with a curtain track that had been specially designed and bent to meet the specifications and requirements at the place of installation. The curtain tracking systems are normally powder coated and the most common powder coating color is white, so that the curtain carriers blend with the ceiling. Moreover, the curtain track is generally provided a fair amount of lubrication by the application of a Teflon coating, so that the cubicle curtain fabric could be easily operated, if opening or closing of the enclosure is required. The curtain tracking system is also provided with gliding carriers so that the above work is made much easier.
