Acute Care Curtain Tracks

PRIVACY, PLEASE

Patients demand privacy, as well they should. So as new acute care hospitals are being built, they are accommodating these patient requests by building all private patient rooms. As older hospitals try to keep pace, they are renovating semi-private rooms to private rooms. But even in private rooms with a solid door, additional privacy is needed when the door is opened by a doctor, nurse, or visitor.


LOOK UP

Curtain tracks have long been a familiar sight in hospitals and even with the emergence of private rooms, they are still needed around the patient's bed. When the curtains are closed, these tracks and curtains allow for privacy when the door to the room is open. Oftentimes, curtain tracks are mounted to the ceiling on just one side or 3/4 of the way around the patient's bed. A frequently used curtain track is our 88001 Privacy Cubicle Track, an aluminum track with silver satin finish and is available in 6 foot, 8 foot, 12 foot and 16 foot sections.


OPEN AND CLOSED

The curtains that hang on these tracks are privacy curtains and they are often in soothing colors and patterns. They are made of top quality construction with a triple thick 1.5 inch header reinforced with a middle layer of nylon mesh at the top. These curtains have Safe-T-Stitching which locks in hems and seams and the grommets are rustproof nickel plated brass. Privacy curtains are 100% flame retardant per NFPA #701 standards and are also, BONUS: machine washable up to 160 degrees F! These privacy cubicle curtains not only look great, they also hold up in the toughest hospital. Our privacy curtains are available in any height but be sure to include ceiling height and the length of the curtain track when requesting a quote.

Hanging Two Curtains With Double Wall Brackets

TWO IS BETTER THAN ONE

Softening the look of a room by adding lush curtains is great but adding sheer panels is even better! When you want to hang two sets of curtains, the 84172 Double Wall Bracket is your best friend. This bracket system allows you to install two parallel tracks making it a perfect solution when adding sheers, plus curtains, to your windows.

ONE - TWO PUNCH

The 84172 Extra Long Double Bracket allows for two of our 84003 Ball-Bearing Curtain Tracks to be installed in parallel, can be mounted with up to a 4 inch clearance between tracks and needs 6 1/2 inch wall clearance for the outer track. This wall bracket is sold individually and is available in silver or white. Please note that mounting screws are not included with this bracket.

In a previous blog post, we shared the advantages of the 84172 Double Wall Bracket. "Our double wall brackets are similar to a double-rod system with one HUGE advantage: the brackets don’t interfere with the movement of the curtains. These brackets hold the track above the carriers, allowing them to slide right under. This is particularly important if you are covering a large area or a whole wall. With rods you would have to create a curtain panel for each section of the rod (and you will have several sections if the area is wide), but with curtain tracks you can cover the whole wall with one large curtain if you want to."


DOUBLE DOWN

Once you have your wall brackets and tracks installed, you can add your curtains. We can help with that, too! We offer a wide variety of curtains to fit almost any style, including a wide selection of Eclipse Light-Blocking Curtains available to over 35 colors and varying lengths and widths. If you are looking for ideas and inspiration for your project, contact our Customer Service Team or visit us on Pinterest.

Convert a Closet into Functional Space

We've mentioned before in our blog about replacing closet doors with curtains. Along those lines, we came across an interesting article at realsimple.com regarding closet conversion by Nicole Sforza. The article highlighted three homeowners who took closet space that was disorganized and underutilized and converted it into stylish and highly functional alcoves in their living spaces. In each of the three examples, you will notice that a curtain was used to conceal the area or storage within the area, and you know by know that we are always on the lookout for creative ways to utilize curtain tracks in interior design.

Dorm Room Essentials


BACK TO SCHOOL

August will be here before we know it and with that many students are heading off to college. When it comes to dorm room essentials, what's on the list? Bedding, TV, a refrigerator of course, but what else? There's a myriad list of odds and ends including essential items needed for class but when it comes to your actual dorm room, have you really thought about how you can make it feel more like home?



SIMPLE BUT BRILLIANT

A couple years ago, curtain tracks customer, Laurie, jazzed up her daughter's dorm room by doing something very simple but with a big impact: she added curtain tracks and curtains. She used track 84004 Ball Bearing Carrier Curtain Track with clamps that would hold the track to the framework of the drop ceiling. By doing this, it allowed her to install a full length curtain track without drilling any holes. She installed two tracks spliced together and simply cut off any extra track that wasn’t needed. After the track was installed, she added curtains that not only helped make the room feel more welcoming but also served a secondary purpose by keeping the room dark when needed. College students often burn the midnight oil studying (or perhaps socializing) resulting in fewer hours of sleep during nighttime hours. That means they have to be able to catch some Zzz's during the day. Adding curtains is a perfect solution.


WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE?

This is an easy project that even the most "unhandiest" of people can complete. We loved it so much that we pinned this simple yet brilliant dorm room idea on Pinterest and since then, it has been repinned, and most likely replicated, hundreds of times. Such a simple idea but with such a big impact.


READY TO TRY IT?

So when you make your dorm room essentials list this year, perhaps you should consider adding curtain tracks to your room or apartment. Have questions? We are here to help! Looking for design guidance? Laurie runs L Interiors in the Houston area and can be reached at laurieschmid@me.com.

Need Some Peace And Quiet? Look No Further Than Our Eclipse Curtains!


A LITTLE PEACE AND QUIET

If you follow the Curtain-Tracks blog, you have heard us mention our Eclipse curtains. These curtains are wonderful in so many ways and can be used in a variety of settings. Most often, we talk about how they are fantastic in bedrooms where they block 98% of light, and reduce sounds from outside. These curtains are so effective at what they do, they are used in hotel rooms all over the world, in truck cabs, RVs, boats and cargo ships. We are sure you have seen these amazing curtains in several places!



ONLY THE BEST

These curtains aren’t just popular because they are functional. The Eclipse curtain fabric that we carry are simply the best of the best. They are machine-washable, flame-retardant, and available in over 25 colors so you are sure to find the curtains perfect for your space. They are also energy conserving, saving you money down the road.

Eclipse curtains have nickel-plated brass grommets every six inches (or you can use snap tape) so they require a hook and a carrier like our two-wheel carrier with hook. Hanging these curtains from a ceiling mounted track like the 88001 Privacy Cubicle Curtain Track, will maximize the perks of these curtains (light blocking, sound absorbing, energy efficient, etc.) by creating a floor-to-ceiling virtual wall.


HOW MUCH CURTAIN?

Before ordering, decide how you want to have your curtains look when the project is completed. For placement, if mounting on the ceiling, first decide how far out from the wall you would like your track to be. If you love the look of full curtains, multiply the length of the track by 0.6 and add this to the original track length. This is your curtain width. If you want even more fullness in your curtains, double the length of the track for your curtain width. You then will need to measure from the track to where you want the curtain to fall. This measurement becomes your curtain length. Confused? No problem! Contact us and we can help.


SERENITY NOW

Create a sanctuary in your bedroom and get the sleep you deserve, and need, by adding Eclipse curtains. Not sure what color will work best? Contact our friendly customer service team and we will send you samples. Call us at 888-434-7444 so we can help you make it happen.

Who’s Game for Arena and Stadium Curtains?

Lately, we’ve been thinking big. Really big. Like, arena big. These thoughts took us all the way to Kansas, where there is no place like…Wichita State University (WSU). We were happy to outfit WSU’s Charles Koch Arena with curtains, curtain tracks, and drapery hardware worthy of the Shockers. Curtains probably aren’t the first thing that springs to mind when you think of heading to an arena to watch a basketball game or concert, or to a stadium to watch football, but they can be very useful in these venues.
