Have High Ceilings? Longer Batons Now Available up to 5 feet!
If so, you may be happy to learn we now have batons in 60 inch lengths, making it easier to draw curtains on many of the track systems we offer. The 5 foot batons with clips are available in both clear acrylic (Part # 7136) and white fiberglass (Part # 84184), and are great for shorter users or those with tall curtains or draperies.
If your track system offers master carriers, they makes a great attachment point. If not, you can usually add an additional carrier between the first and second carriers supporting the curtain to help move the curtains from side to side. Batons also help to avoid fingerprints and smudges on hand drawn curtains, keeping your curtains better looking and longer lasting.
Pantone Selects 2010 Color of the Year
"Whether envisioned as a tranquil ocean surrounding a tropical island or a protective stone warding off evil spirits, Turquoise is a color that most people respond to positively. It is universally flattering, has appeal for men and women, and translates easily to fashion and interiors. With both warm and cool undertones, Turquoise pairs nicely with any other color in the spectrum. Turquoise adds a splash of excitement to neutrals and browns, complements reds and pinks, creates a classic maritime look with deep blues, livens up all other greens, and is especially trend-setting with yellow-greens."
If you are trying to select the right color for your new curtains, draperies, trim, or accessories, Turquoise may be just the right choice.
Customer Profile - Samurai Seamstress
Lisa Bibbee has been specializing in marine canvas, cushions, and curtains, as well as designing clothing, costumes, and prototypes for over 14 years as the Samurai Seamstress in Santa Cruz, CA. For several of her recent projects involving boat interiors over the last six months, she has become a repeat Curtain-Tracks.com customer.
"I recently finished a job using the 3120 track with double wheel carriers for a 60 foot power boat. I loved the ease movement of the double wheeled carriers for the 11 foot wide curtains," said Bibbee. "The owners loved it and are scheduling more work for their boat. The customer support offered by Curtain-Tracks.com has been extremely helpful in choosing the right product for some of my more complicated marine jobs."
It's not often you get an endorsement from a real Samurai, and we look forward to supporting the Samurai Seamstress' ongoing success. Can we help you as well?
