WHY USE DROP CHAINS?
If you have ever visited a hospital emergency room, nursing home or clinic, you may have noticed privacy cubicle curtains around an adjustable bed. Oftentimes, these curtains have drop chains at the top that connect the curtain to the curtain track. Drop chains can replace the mesh at the top of the curtains and both (drop chains and mesh) meet fire code requirements by providing clearance for sprinkler systems in the event of a fire. The 7185 Beaded Chain Curtain Drop With Hook is a nickel plated brass chain and eyelet with stainless steel hook. The beauty of this chain is it will not rust or corrode. It is available in 12', 16.5', and 28.5' lengths and also has removable eyelets that allow it to be cut to custom lengths.
Curtain-Tracks.com has everything you need for your privacy cubicle curtain project including connectors, eyelets, and stainless steel curtain hooks. The 7187 Beaded Chain Connector is a nickel plated 7-inch Beaded Chain Connector with Eyelets and allows spacing of carriers when the curtains are closed. This chain connector is recommended for curtains that require a drop of 16" or more. The 7183 Beaded Chain Eyelet Connector is used to connect the beaded chain (ball chain) to hooks, screws, bolt, or rivet and the 7142 Steel Curtain Hook easily attached to Curtain-Track carriers with a ring to allow for curtains with holes or grommets.
NOT JUST FOR HOSPITALS
You may notice drop chains in a hospital but they can also be used in non-medical settings to bridge the gap between a curtain and the curtain track that may be mounted higher than the height of the curtain. Oftentimes, they are used in a shower or around a claw foot tub in a bathroom with high ceilings. If this is the case for your project, Curtain-Tracks not only has drop chains in common lengths, we can also customize the length to meet your specific needs.
