Cover Your Tracks With Snap Tape

By curtain-tracks 1 years ago 222 Views No comments

WHAT IS IT?

Have you ever wondered how you should use snap tape? This blog post will cover all of the bases so you can get started on your next window treatment project. Snap tape is sewn onto curtains to attach various snap carriers and is commonly used for ripple fold draperies and curtain panels. It has a 1" wide polyester webbing and nickel plated brass snaps placed 4.25 inches apart and attaches to the back of the curtain panel. Once sewn onto the back of the curtain, it snaps to your curtain carrier or glide of choice. The photo below shows a ripple fold curtain using 3091 snap tape, 7120 snap carriers and the 52124 curtain track.

3091 Snap Tape - sold by the yard or available in a 100 yard roll, is available in white, black or gray. There are many benefits to using snap tape but the most notable benefit is it allows for easy removal of the curtains from the drapery hardware for easy cleaning of the curtains.


COVER YOUR CARRIERS OR TRACK

If you want to cover your carriers, just sew the snap tape 1/4" from the top of the curtain header. If you want to cover the hardware and the track, bring the snap tape even lower on the curtain panel. When using the 3091 snap tape, we suggest placing the first snap approximately 1" from the side of the curtain like the photo below.

If you have questions on how to use snap tape on your next project, our team at Curtain-Tracks can help you achieve the look you are looking for!


Create Extra Space By Removing That Old Closet Door

By Curtain-Tracks 1 years ago 157 Views No comments

SMALLER IS BETTER

We live in a society where it is fairly common to want more but there are benefits to living with less. Becoming Minimalist shares 12 benefits of owning less and not only does having fewer items make it easier to clean your space, you will also spend fewer dollars and have less stress. For people that embrace a "less is more lifestyle" and live in a smaller (or tiny) home, there can be some challenges, specifically when it comes to storing those items. Off-season clothing, linens and kitchen items need a place when not in use so we suggest rethinking a closet space you already have. One way to maximize closet space is to remove the door entirely and adding a curtain.

Curtain Panel on Track Replaces Closet Door


EVERY INCH COUNTS

Removing the door and replacing with a wall or ceiling mount curtain track, along with a decorative curtain, not only enhances the look of your space, it also allows for some extra room to store those items. Maximizing space is critical when living in a small home with limited storage and using curtains instead of a closet door will allow you to utilize every single square inch. Simply install a durable curtain track along with carriers, end stops and mounting hardware and adding a curtain to an existing closet, and you will instantly create some extra space in your home.


Our friendly customer service representatives can help you decide on the best curtain track and accessories for your closet door and are happy to discuss any other storage challenges you might be facing in your home. Give them a call at 888-434-7444 and they will be happy to discuss this with you.

By Curtain-Tracks 1 years ago 90 Views No comments

NOT THE END

End Stops are recommended to be used on each end of a curtain track. They keep carriers or glides on the track and can be used to anchor the curtain at the end or in the middle of the curtain track as needed. On our website under the Hardware & Accessories tab, if you click on End Stops, you will find several that you can choose from.


A FAN FAVORITE

One of our favorites is the 88136 End Stop. The 88136 Metal End Stop is compatible with the 88001 Privacy Cubicle Track (Hospital Track), an aluminum track with silver satin finish commonly used in hospitals and clinics for privacy curtains.

Make A Lasting Impression With Hotel Curtain Tracks

By Curtain-Tracks 1 years ago 278 Views No comments

BE THE BEST

Hotels have a lot of competition so attracting guests is a priority. And as a guest, there’s always that slight bit of excitement as you open your hotel room door. Will the room be large? Clean? Updated? Will there be a mini fridge? Large windows? That impression can be dismal if any of the above aren’t met and that includes what the window treatments look like.


ACROSS THE COUNTRY

With every visit to a hotel, look to the windows. You may be surprised how the window treatments and tracks are often the forgotten part of the room. But when a guest enters the room, the eyes scan the space and then look across the room which is most often where the windows are located. The curtains and how they hang can bring delight or disappointment.


LOOK UP

If you make any of the design decisions for a hotel or you simply want to create a polished look for your windows like most hotels do, you want to check out our selection of hotel curtain tracks. The best tracks to create this finished look are curtain tracks like the 84003 or 84004 ball bearing carrier tracks, along with the master carriers and wands. The 84003 track is a ceiling or wall mount track and available in white, silver, or black. The 84004 track is a ceiling mount aluminum track available in white or silver that accommodates smooth rolling ball bearing carriers.These high-quality tracks can withstand continued use and allow curtains to overlap when closed to block light and increase privacy.


LASTING IMPRESSIONS

Whether you want to make a lasting first impression for hotel guests or want to create this look for your own home, we have the curtain tracks, carriers, and hardware you will need for the project. Give us a call: (888) 465-0274!


Creating Privacy In A Dorm Room

By Curtain-Tracks 1 years ago 192 Views No comments

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Summer is coming to a close and that means college students are moving in for the first time or returning to school in just a few short weeks. Dorm rooms historically haven't been particularly glamorous but colleges and universities are making vast updates to their housing options to attract more students. Even with the addition of private rooms and apartment-style living, the traditional dorm room still exists. This type of room usually consists of bunk beds, a couple desks and dressers and they don’t have a lot of frill, or privacy, for that matter. For those who live in a dorm room such as this, creating a space with a bit of privacy isn’t completely out of the question.

MOVING IN

We have worked with students across the country to create this privacy by adding curtain tracks and curtains to their bunk beds. Adding curtains to a bunk bed can create a comfortable study space and help eliminate distractions (like your roommate).The curtains can be pulled closed to keep light from coming in, especially for any mid afternoon naps! If eclipse curtains are used, they not only block out light, they help absorb sound. That's a win-win!


PRIVATE SPACE

For a project like this, our ceiling-mounted curtain tracks will work to transform your bunk or loft into your private space. These tracks can be installed directly into the ceiling if you have a loft, you can use clamps if your room has a drop ceiling, or you can add them in the frame of a bunk bed to cover the bottom bunk. After the track is installed, add our Bunk Bed Privacy Curtains. This awesome fabric is not only machine washable, it also blocks 98% of light. They are 48 inches wide and 36 inches tall and are available in beige, navy and black. But if you need different sizing, simply give us a call and we can make custom curtains for you!

SCHOOL'S IN SESSION

As unconventional as adding curtains to a bunk bed or loft may sound, it provides a solution that can help students get through the school year. Let us help you with your project. Give us a call at (888) 465-0274 to speak with one of our friendly customer service team members!



Using Multiple Tracks In A Large Space

By Curtain Tracks 1 years ago 119 Views No comments

When you want to add curtain tracks to a large space, like a wall of windows, as a room divider, or in a conference room, you need multiple tracks. Several of our tracks come in 8' foot or 12' sections but you can lay multiple tracks end to end for a seamless track for your space.

Capture

STRAIGHT AS AN ARROW

Installing multiple curtain tracks is definitely possible and will look great when finished if you use the right drapery hardware, tools, and a level. Our 88001 Privacy Cubicle Curtain Track, an aluminum track with silver satin finish that is available in 6', 8', 12' and 16' sections, and the 4108 Bendable I-Beam Curtain Track, available in silver or black anodized aluminum I-Beam track with satin finish and comes in 8' lengths, can be spliced end to end with 4128 ceiling splicer or 4130 wall splicer.


ALIGN YOUR PRINCIPALS

If you are aligning tracks without splicers, the tracks need to be fully aligned to minimize the seam and reduce the carriers from catching on a seam when in use. If at all possible, placing the seam of the curtain tracks as close to the middle of the space as possible where the curtains meet will help minimize the carriers catching on the track.
