Curtain Style / February 5, 2019 / Aaliyah Dotson.
These special fabric designer shower curtains are available in a huge range of colors, styles and even different patterns for any occasion or the new look you may be searching for. By adding a new fabric shower curtain you will be adding a large statement to your bathroom decor which will allow you to match any bathroom window curtains, towels, floor mats to even waste baskets.
Curtain tracking can be attached to solid or falsedrop down ceilings using screws or clips. Attaching the tracking to a solid ceiling requires the use of screws; screw directly into ceiling studs whenever possible. Holes will need to be drilled into the tracking at each attaching point. It is not always possible to screw into a stud. When this occurs, the use of an anchor is necessary. An anchor is pressed into a pre-drilled hole.
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.
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.
