Not All Wall Mount Curtain Tracks Are Equal

AGAINST A WALL

We often talk about ceiling mount curtain tracks and how they are designed to be mounted to the ceiling or any other horizontal surface. Depending on the track, it can be screwed directly into the ceiling, attached to the ceiling using specific hardware, or it can even be recessed into the ceiling. But we don't just carry ceiling tracks, we also have a robust selection of wall mount curtain tracks - and they are not all the same.


FLUSHED

Some wall mount tracks like the 5400 curtain track and 3112 plastic track can be mounted flush to the wall. These tracks only need screws and there is no need for any additional mounting brackets or hardware. The 5400 Wall Mount Track is available in 3-foot sections and has mounting holes every 9”. These tracks can even be overlapped for longer applications. What makes this track so fantastic is it can be bent to a 15” radius horizontally, and vertically 5” per 36-inch section. The way to do this is to heat the track in hot water first and then slightly bend it for arched and bent installations making it perfect for your project.



The 3112 Wall Mount Track (pictured below) is made of PVC plastic and is available in 8-foot sections. This track allows for mounting holes to be easily drilled during installation and is also flexible for arched applications. This versatile track is available in a variety of colors including white, brown, gray, and black.


DOUBLE TROUBLE

Others tracks like the 84003 or 4108 track both use wall brackets that enable for a space between the wall and the track. The 84003 track also offers double wall brackets which allow for a pair of wall mounted drapery tracks to run parallel. This use is common with sheers on one track and curtains on the second.


OPTIONS GALORE

No matter the project, we have the largest selection of curtain tracks giving you options when it comes to your curtain track project. Check out other articles on our Blog to learn more about wall mount curtain tracks or reach out to our customer service team with your questions: 888-465-0274.

Airstream Travel Trailers Gain Popularity

Beginning with Wally Byam's dream to build the perfect travel trailer, Airstream travel trailers have been manufactured for over 70 years. The classic and efficient designs of those early trailers are still present in today's models, with the look of the Airstream mostly unchanged. Airstreams have certainly stood the test of time and their popularity continues to grow (as documented in the Today Show segment provided below), particularly as the RV industry begins to show signs that the US economy is indeed picking up some momentum on its way to a recovery.

Retail Dressing Rooms or Changing Areas

Curtain tracks can offer a retail store owner a lot of flexibility with regard to how their dressing rooms and changing areas are configured. Often times, a retailer wants to create a space for customers to try on clothes or change without incurring the expense of building out hard walls to meet this need. In this scenario, curtains on tracks can be used to conceal the entire perimeter of this changing area. No walls are needed, and the curtains can be pulled back or removed to free up the space for other uses as needed. The use of divider or privacy curtains allows a shop owner to fully utilize their floor space and grants latitude to change the use on the fly.

Hit The Open Road With Curtain-Tracks

SUMMER DREAMS

There's nothing like updating your home, whether that home is permanently affixed to the ground or is a home on wheels. Lila T. from San Antonio, Texas freshened up the inside of her home on wheels and is ready to hit the road this summer now that her project is complete! She recently sent us photos of her completed project and the end result looks fantastic.

LOOKING GOOD

For her project, she used Track 3110-4 cut to length and mounted it to the window frame with 2-sided foam tape. This is a PVC plastic track and is flexible, non-corrosive, and rust free. She added 3032 end caps, and 3042 glides sewn to the curtain. To top it off, the curtain material has a black-out backing for privacy and also helps block light and absorb sound.

Lila T. used Track 84003-S cut to length and drilled holes to mount to the bottom of the shelf with flat head screws. This is a strong aluminum architectural track that accommodates smooth rolling ball bearing carriers and is available in white, silver, or black. She then used 84134 end caps, 84102 micro carrier, and 4146 pin hooks. She did all of this with two other identical windows.

THE END RESULT? FANTASTIC.

Whatever your project, the friendly and knowledgeable customer service team at Curtain-Tracks is here to help you every step of the way. Lila said, “Thanks for the great products!” Thank you, Lila, for sending us pics of your finished project! It looks great!

Open Office Spaces And Curtain Tracks

OPEN SESAME

We've recently read a few articles discussing the many downfalls of open office spaces. A recent article in The Journal Times shares, "Across America, companies have torn down walls, built big open spaces, and designed work environments to make it easier than ever for staff members to talk. But what's been the effect of all of these open spaces? A series of new studies suggest that open workspaces aren't all they're cracked up to be. In fact, opening up offices may actually have the effect of decreasing communication and hurting productivity rather than helping it." What this article, and several other we have read, is trying to say is this kind of environment actually decreases face-to-face communication. But if you have an open office space, what are you to do? Start building walls? This can be time consuming and expensive. However, there is a solution that allows you to break up an office space when needed or open it up for large meetings: curtain walls.

DIVIDE AND CONQUER

Curtain walls can divide a space into smaller offices and conference rooms for brainstorming sessions and we have everything you need! The 6200 Heavy Duty I Beam is a strong track that can be mounted to the ceiling or the wall with the appropriate brackets and can divide the room beautifully. The 6100 F6100 Flexible Track on the other hand, is great for creating a few cubicles. Adding Eclipse Light Blocking Curtains to the curtain tracks will help also absorb sound so larger meetings don't disrupt others working at their desks.


SURPRISE!

Imagine doing this project over a weekend and having your team walk in on Monday. Do you think they would love it? If this is a project you are considering for your office space, contact our Customer Service team at 1-888-465-0274 and we can help you.

Creating Versatile Spaces In Churches


WORSHIP SPACES

We talk about curtain tracks being in homes, workspaces, hospitals and clinics, but one place you may not think to find them is in churches. No matter the religion, many churches use their space in several ways in addition to Sunday services. Churches use their buildings for meetings, concerts, events like Vacation Bible School and weddings, and even plays. These versatile spaces require flexible solutions to accommodate these different functions.


TALL CEILINGS

Many churches have tall, expansive ceilings. When looking to add a curtain track, the 3120 Heavy Duty Curtain Track is the best bet. Available in silver or black anodized aluminum, it has a thicker top wall for added support. This track can support the weight of heavy curtains that are longer than 10 feet long. When selecting carriers, the 7140 Double Wheel Carriers are durable and the perfect choice. Available in white they have 11.5 mm diameter wheels supporting a large metal ring. These carriers make the opening and closing of tall curtains smooth and easy.


READY TO HELP

Whether you are a church staff member or a volunteer looking to create versatile spaces in your church, we are here to help. We can speak with you about the spaces in your church and how adding curtain tracks can create multiple uses, including smaller meeting rooms or even an enhanced backdrop in the sanctuary or auditorium.

Joe from San Luis Obispo, California recently fully restored his 1971 VW Westfalia Camper Bus.

Joe contacted us for a few different products to help complete his project.

MAKING THE OLD NEW

The 3110 track is made of PVC plastic and can be mounted on the ceiling or wall. This track is flexible, non-corrosive and rust proof. Mounting brackets aren't required with this track and it is available in black, brown, gray and white.

Bending I Beam Curtain Track

One of the great benefits of the RECMAR 4108 I-Beam curtain track (also used in the 4372 Deluxe Shower Curtain Track Kit) is that it can be bent into angles or arcs by hand without the need for any special tools, equipment, or inserts.  This track can be bent to a 90 degree angle while requiring only a 2 inch bend radius.

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.
