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.
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.
An end-stop should be placed at both ends of the curtain tracking setup. Curtain tracking end-stops are used to prevent curtain carriers from slipping out. One end should contain a snap out fitting to allow for easy installation and replacement of curtain carriers. Snap out fittings sit inside an end-stop and are easily removed. Removal is necessary to install or replace your curtain carriers without removing the curtain tracking from the ceiling.
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.
The first step is choosing a curtain. You need to ask yourself what you want your curtain to do. If it is needed it to block light, then a blackout fabric should be chosen. If it must meet state and federal commercial fire codes, then mesh top curtains are necessary to allow sprinkler systems to adequately protect their environment. Quality cubicle and hospital curtains are made with inherently fire retardant materials that are durable, safe, and last throughout the lifetime of the cubicle curtain. There are many colors and styles of fabrics to choose from; including solid colors, striped, textured, patterned and more.
