Curtain Style / January 17, 2019 / Aaliyah Dotson
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.
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.
