Choosing The Right Curtain Tracks, Part 2


Choosing The Right Curtain Tracks, Part 2


As we’ve said before – we love curtain tracks, and we’ve got more than anyone around. We’ve got flexible, rigid, small, big, aluminum, plastic, and many more categories. Plus some of our tracks are available in light-weight, medium-weight, and heavy duty! How is a prospective curtain-hanger to choose? The good news is that you do not have to pick out your curtain tracks in a vacuum. We love to help you with choosing the right curtain track by organizing our website in a user-friendly way, and by giving you tips in this blog and others. If all that fails, then simply call us, tell us what your project is, and we will propose a few candidate tracks for you.

6100 Flexible Curtain Track


One of our most popular tracks is the 6100 Flexible Curtain Track. This is a white I-beam track made of PVC with an internal metal spine that can be bent by hand to a four to ten inch radius (depending on the track size). We store this track in 100-foot coils (give or take, again depending on the size) and cut it to custom length for your needs. This track is available in standard, medium, and heavy duty strengths and sizes. Many people don’t realize that the standard track is a very lightweight track that should be only used for sheers, shower curtains, or in RVs, boats, campers, etc. The standard size is good for everyday residential or commercial uses, and is particularly good for drop ceilings. The heavy-duty size is good for heavy commercial or outdoor use. It is particularly effective when installed around the perimeter of a porch or pergola.


If you need a curved track, but want an aluminum track with a lower profile, you might order the 88001 Privacy Cubicle Curtain Track. This track can be ordered in pre-bent sections, and because it is installed directly into the ceiling, and the drapery hardware is inside the track rather than outside, it has a clean visual line and no visible hardware. This track is often a first-choice of hospitals and office buildings, but works great in the home as well.

It’s our job to know everything there is to know about our products. It’s your job to know everything about what you want your finished product to look like. Let’s get together! Call us at 888-434-7444.
