Room Divider Curtains For Your Business

IS IT TIME TO DIVIDE?

Room divider curtains are becoming more popular, especially during this time of COVID-19. They are a fantastic solution to make the most out of a room, whether big or small, by dividing areas off and creating privacy. Often used in churches, conference rooms and restaurant banquet areas, room divider curtains are now seeing more use in dorm rooms, classrooms and office spaces. They not only offer flexibility in how interior spaces can be utilized, they also help with sound proofing and create a barrier for social distancing. In the image below, the restaurant added ceiling mount curtain tracks painted to match the wood beams, and curtains that compliment the decor. The curtains allow the space to be enclosed to create a separate party room.



OPTIONS GALORE

Several factors come into play when deciding what products to use for your room divider project. These include the size of the space, the height of the ceiling and the weight of the curtains that will be used. This information will help determine the correct curtain track and hardware for the project. A common track that is often used for room divider curtains is the 3120 Extra Heavy Duty Curtain Track. This track is available in silver or black anodized aluminum and it has a thicker top wall for added support. The 7140 Double Wheel or 7146 Short Snap Carriers work well with this track. Other ceiling mount track options include the 6200 Heavy Duty I-Beam Track which is commonly used in commercial businesses such as warehouses. Another option is the 84003 Ceiling Mount Track Kit. This kit includes everything you need including a 8 foot curtain track, 28 ball bearing carriers, 2 metal end stops and 6 ceiling clips.

Curtain Track Kits Offer Everything You Need

ALL-IN-ONE

Curtain tracks have many benefits. They are easy to install and are high quality to ensure years and years of use. But there are additional accessories that accompany your high-quality curtain track and we have made it easy for our customers by offering curtain track kits. In fact, the 84004 Ceiling Mount Curtain Track Kit includes a strong 8-foot curtain track with pre-drilled mounting holes on 16-inch centers for ceiling mount applications. The 84004 Ceiling Mount Curtain Track utilizes smooth rolling ball bearing carriers and is available in silver or white. This kit includes everything you need to complete your project, including: one 8 ft track (84004), twenty-eight ball bearing carriers (2 bags - 84100), two metal end stops (84132). Tracks can be mounted end to end for wider applications, but it is critical to get them aligned during installation. Looking to add a wand kit? Check out the 84114 Kit that allows the overlapping of curtains when drawn.



SOME PRAISE

We know this curtain track kit is fabulous but don’t just take it from us, take it from this Curtain-Tracks customer who says, “Used these for a 12 foot wall of windows and doors that were floor to ceiling so a curtain rod wouldn't work. These were easy to get up and what I loved is that I could slide a huge wall of curtains back to the side with ease using the wand and master carrier kit. These were used at our primary rear access door so we'd be moving them back and forth all the time. Having that smooth glide was a huge benefit in that sort of application. Going to buy some again for our patio door in our new house.”


JUST WHAT YOU NEED

When you are looking for curtain tracks for your next project, whether that be hanging curtains in your bedroom or over your sliding glass doors, the 84004 Ceiling Mount Curtain Track Kit may be just what you need.

Customer Project: Curtain Tracks on a Pergola

STAYING HOME

As it turns out, 2020 is the year spent at home. Hunkering down and taking precautions means more families are spending time outside. If you are spending hours and hours in the great outdoors, you may as well make the most of your outdoor space. That's just what one Curtain-Tracks customer from Centreville, MD, decided to do with her patio and the result is fantastic! This family already had a beautifully built pergola but they decided to enhance the look by adding a few different products from Curtain-Tracks, including the 3120 Heavy Duty Curtain Track in Silver, 7127 Stainless Steel End Stops, 7140 Large Double Wheel Carrier and 7142 Stainless Steel Curtain Hooks.



QUALITY PRODUCTS

The pergola was already white so they simply painted their 3120 Heavy Duty Curtain Track white to match. This track is made of anodized aluminum and has thicker top wall for added support. Perfect when using on tall ceilings or pergola! This is a 12 foot track but is cut to 8 feet and 4 feet, or two 6 foot sections for shipping. They also used the 7127 End Stops. End Stops are used to close the ends of the tracks so the carriers don't slip off. They also have another use: you can use two end stops to hold a curtain carrier in place by pinning the carrier between the end stops. Doing this will keep a curtain closed at one end. Genius!



TIME TO RELAX

Once the track was installed, this customer added blue and white striped curtains that can be pulled closed for privacy but can also protect against the elements, like wind and afternoon sun. The curtains look fantastic with the landscaping and create a finished look to the patio. This patio looks so inviting, we just want to sidle up to that bar!


Whether you are looking to add curtains to your pergola, screened in room or front porch, the Curtain-Tracks team is here to help bring your vision to reality. If you have completed a project using some of our products, we would love to see your pictures. We just might share them on social media and our blog. You can send your project pictures to: info@curtain-tracks.com.


Enjoy the summer and stay well!

Modern Media Rooms

The term modern is often used when referring to a design style with clean lines. Modern design style also has a simple color palette and oftentimes incorporates materials such as metal, steel and glass. For those who love this style, they enjoy simplicity and often embrace a "less is more" mentality. According to House Beautiful, "White, beiges, and even some shades of black are the main color palette for modern design, but it can incorporate color as an accent, so long as it leans towards earthy. Also, "Modern design favors open-concept floor plans."



Creating a media room in a home with this design style can be done. We suggest mounting the television on the wall and hiding any cords to create a clean look. Although modern design encourages natural light, it is still possible to add window treatments that are neutral and simple. After all, a true media room is only complete when you can darken the room!


When it comes to adding curtains, a homeowner with modern interior design would embrace a ceiling mount curtain track over a curtain rod. Curtain rods often have finials that are intended to draw attention and stand out while a ceiling mount curtain track, like the 32124 Low Profile Ceiling Mount Curtain Track is much less obvious. The 32124 track has a low profile. Mounting brackets are not required and this track can be mounted end to end with additional tracks if a longer length is needed. This is an aluminum curtain track with silver satin finish and is intended for lower ceilings which many modern homes have. If your home has higher ceilings, we recommend 6200 Heavy Duty I-Beam Track. This track can be ceiling or wall mounted and is available in 8 foot length plus 4 foot length or two 6 foot pieces (12 feet total). It is a silver mill finished aluminum curtain track featuring an I Beam Configuration.


These are just two tracks that would work for a project like this. We have many more to choose from and our customer service team is happy to help you make the perfect decision. You can create a media room and still maintain a modern design. It can be done!

Feeling Distracted and Exposed At Work? Workspace Curtains to the Rescue!

There has been a push in recent years for “open workspaces” in the corporate world. This type of workspace puts lots of employees in one large room with little, if anything, to separate each employee from the next; much like a 1960s newsroom, minus the clacking typewriters. The idea is that this environment will encourage collaboration and allow the company to be more creative and productive. A recent New Yorker blog highlights some research that indicates the reality is quite different. Open workspaces are noisy and privacy is lacking. These conditions lead to distracted, less productive, less satisfied employees. Health may even be affected as workers in an open workspace tend to take more sick days than those in an individual office.

Here Comes The Sun: Outdoor Curtains

HERE COMES THE SUN

For those who are fortunate to live in southern states during these cold winter months, you may be spending some time outdoors. If this is the case, why not create some privacy like C-T customer Jennifer W. did when she added curtain tracks to her lanai?

KEEP THE PEACE

Jennifer has a pool with a great lanai surrounding it. To create some privacy, she wanted to add curtains that could be left open or pulled closed for privacy. She decided to use the 42124 Ceiling Mount Curtain Track mounted to the frame of her lanai along with snap tape and snap carriers. This aluminum curtain track is available in silver or black and can be mounted end to end for longer lengths. The 42124 track is compatible with 3 different carriers: 7120 Single Snap Carrier (used with 3090 snap tape), 7122 Button Carrier w/ Stainless Hook, and 7124 Button Carrier and the 7127 end stop.


PROTECTED

To complete the look, she used weather-proof material for her curtains. The beauty of adding curtains and curtain tracks to an outdoor space like this is it doesn’t just create visual privacy from the neighbors, but it can also help contain sound. For example, if you have kids who love to play and yell in the pool, curtains can help keep the sound from traveling to the neighbors. Adding curtains to a lanai can also be helpful when it comes to sun protection. Many lanais offer UV protection but not all screen enclosures do. Adding UV protected curtains can be helpful when it comes to sun protection.


READY?

Even if you don't live in a part of the country that has warm days throughout the year, you can still start thinking about a summer project where you add curtain tracks and curtains to your lanai, screened in porch or pergola. We have everything you need!

Outdoor Curtain Project

We recently received some great images of an outdoor curtain installation in Oakland, TN from one of our customers and wanted to share them.  Jerry C.  fabricated his own outdoor curtains from a Sunbrella outdoor fabric.   This outdoor fabric will hold up well in the elements, and provides shade while still offering some transparency through the curtains based upon the weave of the fabric.  The intent was to provide shade for the covered patio behind their home, and we really like the look of this finished do-it-yourself (DIY) project.

Making Your Great Room Grand With Curtain Tracks

GREAT IS GRAND

Wikipedia says a great room is, “a room inside a house that combines the roles of several more traditional rooms (e.g. the family room, the living room, the study, etc.) into one space. Great rooms typically have raised ceilings, and are usually placed at or near the center of the home.” A feature that is often found in a great room are tall, two-story windows. These grand windows are a focal point allowing in plenty of light. The tricky part about these windows (aside from the difficulty of cleaning them) is deciding how to “dress” them.


Jun 29, 2017 12:44:41 AM

CREATING A FOCAL POINT

Adding curtains or sheers is indeed possible and they look fantastic once they are completely installed. This is when we strongly suggest you use a curtain track over a traditional curtain rod. The right curtain track can bear the weight of heavy curtains, and they will be heavy, because that’s a lot of fabric. This also means a sturdy curtain track will support the constant opening and closing of the curtains.

HEAVY DUTY QUALITY

If you plan on hanging long drapes, we recommend our 6200 Heavy Duty I-Beam Track. This track can be mounted on the wall or ceiling with brackets, and uses a metal block carrier with nylon wheels. If you have really, really heavy curtain panels, we suggest our 3120 Extra Heavy Duty Track. It can be drilled directly into the ceiling with no brackets and uses large double-wheeled carriers. The type of curtain panel you choose will determine the best hooks for your project. If your curtains have grommets, our inexpensive steel curtain hooks will work well, but if the curtain panel has pleats, our equally inexpensive drapery hooks are a perfect fit.

THE NEXT STEP

Now that you have decided to add curtains to your stunning tall windows, you will need a tall ladder, possibly some scaffolding, to get the job done. If this seems daunting, you can call a local handyman who has the proper equipment.

Don’t be intimidated, instead, be excited! Your great room will look grand with your sturdy curtain tracks and beautiful curtains! Give us a call if we can help, at 888-434-7444.
