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.
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.
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.
Depending on the breathing space you want to embellish with a window curtain, color is a vital factor, color can relay a the doldrums for that particular room, for example, if you have a room where you like to read, relax and have some quiet time, choose a curtain color which will aid your relaxation - dont go with bright colors. For childrens rooms and rooms where the objective is to have fun, choose a bright color that will add to the fun environment. The color and the design of the curtain fabric are imperative factors to take into account. There are many different designs available, some fun, some serious, some serene. So, before you make your alternative think about the end product and how you want to make the scope sense.
There is no spat regarding the significance of curtain lengths in adding to the mood of the room. Long length curtains are ideal for those rooms that display formal attitude and cater to official activities. Curtains that touch the floor are apt for living rooms and formal dining rooms. Curtains that flaunt floor-to-ceiling length will add a refined elegance to any room by making the ceiling of the room making the ceiling of the room appear taller. These types of curtains are ideal if you want to offer a sophisticated look to the room. Family rooms are ideal candidates for these kinds of long length curtains.
