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.
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.
