Anodized aluminum splicing clamps join multiple pieces of tracking to ensure proper alignment of the channels. This will allow the carriers/rollers to move freely from one piece of tracking to the next. Clean and smooth the ends of each piece of track before assembly; burrs may cause the carriers/rollers to hang up.
With the internet it is possible to view the many types of curtains, choose the appropriate style and colour to suit your home. To name a few types of curtains you are likely to find: curtain valance, cascade curtains, shirred curtains, café curtains and more. When you consider curtain types, also investigate the type of hanging style you require, for example you may want to choose a rod which has designs to fit, you may be interested in pelmets or using a tie-back curtain system.
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.
Deciding the right length is up to you. If you have kids running around in your home, it is ideal to have shorter curtains taking into account safety aspects. Whatever be the length of the curtains, see to it that it suits the mood of the 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.
