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.
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.
