Quality curtain tracking is made of 16 gauge extruded aluminum and is typically sold in eight foot lengths. If shorter lengths are required, tracking may be easily cut down with a hacksaw. Curves pre-bent to 45 deg. and 90 deg. are available for applications requiring the curtain to bend around a room; curves are 2 feet by 2 feet and bent at a 12 inch radius.
Curtains and draperies are essential window treatment features that can transform the entire look and feel of any room, if done in a tasteful manner. Even though curtains are primarily used to block light and sound, they act as a fine home decorative item. Choosing the right type of window curtain includes fine selection of color, fabric, curtain rods, curtain length etc. Curtains can enhance the personality and look of any home décor if all the parameters are chosen aesthetically. Rooms can reflect modern, elegant or cool ambiance depending on the type of curtains selected. Deciding on the right curtain length for your room is crucial since it plays a key role in offering the room the right character.
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.
If you were to consider the many different types of curtains, you will be left feeling confused; there are a wide range of creatively developed curtains. According to your taste and personal style, the type of curtain you choose reflects your personality and reflects the feel of your home you wanted to create. Depending on the room you want to dress with curtains, the function and style of each considered curtain needs to be discussed and well thought out. From kitchen windows to bedroom windows, the function of these curtains must suit that particular room.
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.
