Curtain Tracks In Health Clinics and ERs


PLENTY OF CARE

If you live in suburbia, there are plenty of detached Emergency Rooms, Urgent Care Centers, and health clinics inside grocery stores, allowing you to get a Physical, flu shot or even be treated for more serious illnesses. Most of the time, these health clinics don't have private rooms for every single patient so instead, they use curtain tracks and privacy curtains to divide the space into smaller rooms.



TOP NOTCH

Patients "rooms" aren't exactly a rectangular shape so hospital interior designers have to be a bit creative. Many health clinics use our 6100 flexible curtain track because it can be configured easily to fit just about any space. This track is smooth and comes in one piece, up to 164 feet for the standard weight. Our medium and heavy duty tracks are available in a length of 98 feet. The flexible curtain track has a metal spine making it not only flexible, but also strong.

With this track, flexible curtain track carriers can be added. We always tell hospital interior designers that to ensure proper fit and function of the carriers, they should choose the same weight as the track. Once the carriers are in place, just add a hook to hang the curtains. Our 7142 stainless steel hooks are perfect for hospital use because they won't stain or rust.


THE FINAL PIECE

Once the tracks and carriers are in place, privacy curtains can be added. Our privacy curtains come in a variety of colors, textures, and sizes, but our Sundance line is extremely popular for these settings. They are stain and odor resistant and they are antimicrobial and can be machine washed or dry cleaned. We understand that hospitals and health clinics want to create a calming feel in that environment so we have plenty of colors and styles to choose from to ensure there is a curtain to fit any style.


WHY ME?

You may ask, "Why do I care about curtain tracks when I am in the ER?" Great question! A clinic that takes time to consider the patient's privacy and create a space that is comforting, especially in a time of need, might be the kind of health clinic we would check out (but only if needed, of course).


If you are responsible for your clinic, ER or Urgent Care Center's design or just need extra carriers for your already existing privacy curtains and curtain tracks, give us a call.

    Curtain Tracks And Cabanas


    TIME TO RELAX

    Have you ever enjoyed a vacation at a resort or a hotel where they had beautiful cabanas by the pool or beach that you could rent for the day? Oftentimes, these cabanas are equipped with furnishings such as comfortable chaise lounges, a refrigerator, ceiling fan, and sometimes even a TV. Another feature that makes these cabanas so luxurious are the privacy curtains. A wait staff comes by to take your drink orders as you relax by the pool in your private space. Ahhhh, sounds amazing, doesn't it?



    SIESTA TIME!

    On a recent visit to Marco Island, Florida, we noticed a resort used ceiling curtain tracks like the 42124 curtain track, curtains in an aqua color, and a wand so the curtains would easily glide along the track. Guests could close the curtains for privacy or if they wanted to take a siesta. Don't get us wrong, we love the extra comfy cushions on the lounges in these cabanas. They are quite appealing. But the curtain tracks and curtains and being able to create that element of privacy and seclusion, makes the cabana rental daily rates a little bit more bearable.



    CREATE YOUR OWN CABANA SPACE

    We have many customers who use our tracks in their backyard to create their own private space. One customer in Florida added curtains to her lanai which helped block out the sun during peak hours of the day and also gave them privacy if they desired. Another customer added curtain tracks and billowing white curtains around his pergola. Curtain tracks are also useful on gazebos as well as in sunrooms and four season rooms.

    Tell us: have you ever seen one of the cabanas that can be rented for a day? If you have, have you ever indulged yourself and rented one?

    The Magic of A Wand


    HOCUS POCUS

    Have you ever had to open curtains that are hung from a high ceiling? If you have, did you have to tug on them to open and close them or did you use a wand? A curtain wand (also known as a baton), is often added to curtains, whether they are at standard height or on tall windows. The wand allows for added ease when opening and closing. This handy-dandy item is often overlooked because let's face it, it's not an especially glamorous accessory. But this small piece of hardware allows for seamless opening and closing of curtains and you will find them at many establishments, most commonly, in hotels and homes. In fact, we would almost bet you will find them in 90% of the hotels you visit!




    NOT FLASHY

    We will admit that the wand, or baton, is one of our favorite pieces of hardware. Our 84182 White Fiberglass Wand and 7136 Clear Acrylic Wand can be attached to almost any curtain simply by clipping it to the last carrier. It's not flashy but once installed, the wand allows you to easily open and close curtains, even those heavy draperies hung from a tall ceiling. If you are looking for a kit, our Master Carriers & Wands (Batons) Kit might be just what you are looking for. It has 8 Wheel Master Carriers to offer superior stability and overlap of curtains when drawn. Includes a left and right master carrier and two 36 inch clear acrylic wands with clips for easy attachment. The wands are hidden out of sight behind the curtain when clipped to master carrier.


    WHY ASK WHY?

    Our customers often ask us, "Why should I use a wand when I can just pull the curtains open?" The answer is simple. Using a wand can help save your curtain track, carriers and curtains from dirty hands and wear and tear. An added bonus: they are inexpensive!


    GO FOR IT

    The function of these little magic wands is pretty awesome. The next time you are working on a project, consider adding a wand. If you already use one, we would love to hear your thoughts.

    Fire Prevention Week

    FIRE PREVENTION WEEK

    The National Fire Prevention Association is the leading information and knowledge resource on fire, electrical and related hazards. Since 1922, the NFPA has sponsored the public observance of Fire Prevention Week. This year, they recognize Fire Prevention Week is October 7-13. This year’s FPW campaign, “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere,” works to educate people about three basic but essential steps to take to reduce the likelihood of having a fire––and how to escape safely in the event of one.

    FLAME RETARDANT

    When it comes to having items in your home or workplace that can help prevent a fire from spreading, we recommend our fire resistant curtains. Our Eclipse Light Blocking Curtains are 98% Light Blocking, Sound Absorbing, Energy Conserving, Machine washable, but best of all, 100% flame retardant and they meet NFPA 701 requirements.

    Not only are these curtains flame retardant, they look great as well! We recently received this testimonial from a Curtain-Tracks customer, “Had some very large curtains made for our rental properties. These curtains really do add a rich feel to the space and block the light from the huge wall of windows. They did take a few weeks to get here but it was worth the wait. Will order again.”


    STAYING SAFE

    Take a look around your home or workplace and look for places where a fire could start. Once you identify potential fire hazards, take care of them. Perhaps that means replacing your window treatments with flame retardant materials. If you are looking for fire resistant curtains, please contact our Customer Service team. We are here to help.

    Curtain Tracks Or Curtain Rods?

    WHICH ONE?

    We are often asked why someone should choose curtain tracks over curtain rods. It's a fair question and the options can be overwhelming. Never fear! We are here to help!

    KEEP THE LIGHT OUT

    If you are looking to add room darkening, sound absorbing and energy conserving eclipse light blocking curtains to a window, curtain tracks would be your best bet. Curtain tracks can be mounted on the ceiling ensuring the entire window is covered, similar to what you see in nearly every hotel room. When the entire window is covered and your curtains block the light, you are more likely to get a solid night's sleep.


    TALL WINDOWS

    If you have tall windows in your home, a curtain track system is going to be most effective. Tall windows call for curtains with lots of fabric which means added weight. With curtain rods, heavy curtains can drag the rod down (or pull it off the wall completely). Several curtain tracks work well with rolling ball carriers allowing for smooth opening and closing of the curtains. Add a wand to the curtain panels (the 60 inch wand length is great for tall curtains and high ceilings), and opening and closing just became easier and eliminates hand prints on fabric.


    FANCY

    If you are looking to attract attention to your window, besides just the curtains, you may want to consider curtain rods. Curtain rods are available in many styles and sizes and can have decorative corbels adding a different design element to your room.


    STILL NOT SURE?

    If you aren't sure if curtain tracks or curtain rods will work best for your project, give us a call or send us an email! We are happy to answer your questions.

    Oh, Snap! Using Snap Tape on Curtains

    One of the questions our customers often ask is, “What is the benefit of using the Snap Tape”?  Our 3091 Snap Tape works with several of our carriers.  Snap Tape is made with one inch wide polyester webbing and nickel plated brass snaps spaced 4.25 inches apart.  We offer snap tape by the yard in 3 colors:  White, Black or Gray.  It works by snapping the back of the curtain to your curtain carrier or glide of choice instead of utilizing a hook or pin.  It can help you achieve many different design styles in a snap!

    Get Some Sleep With Eclipse Curtains

    LET THE LIGHT SHINE IN

    We admit it. We look for curtain tracks everywhere we go, especially when we stay in hotels. On a recent visit to Las Vegas, a team member stayed in a hotel that was located right on the strip. The flashing lights and sounds are 24 hours a day because, you know, it's the city that never sleeps. Well, our team member happens to enjoy sleep and was sorely disappointed when she discovered the room she was staying in did not have curtains (let alone curtain tracks). This hotel instead chose to use plantation shutters on every window. While shutters LOOK nice, they aren't the most effective when it comes to blocking out light or sound. Perhaps in Vegas, that's the whole idea... they'd rather you DIDN'T sleep.


    CAN I GET SOME ZZZZZs...

    For a solid night's sleep, we always recommend using eclipse curtains, also known as black out curtains. They block 98% of light and are sound absorbing. They are extremely effective in creating a darkened, quieter room when installed using a ceiling mount curtain track, as they cover the entire window. Many hotels (but not this particular one in Las Vegas) use eclipse curtains and ceiling mount curtain tracks because they want their guests to get a good night's sleep. For this very reason, we hear from customers who want to replicate this look for their very own home.


    If you are interested in creating a dark, quiet sanctuary in your bedroom, our eclipse light blocking curtains will certainly help. These curtains are custom made to your exact specifications so you can be sure they are perfect for your project. Contact us and we can walk you through your project. In the meantime, if you visit Las Vegas, we recommend a sleep mask and earplugs if you want to actually sleep.

    Viola! French Door Curtains!

    We love all things French: French wine, French chocolate, French fries…but we digress. French doors make it into our top-ten list of favorite French things for good reason. These entryways originated in France several hundred years ago as large windows with a frame that opened, and had a purely practical purpose – they let in light to areas that needed it before electricity was invented. Luckily, in this case, necessity was the mother of style. Far from becoming obsolete after the invention of the light bulb, these beautiful entryways have flourished and become a coveted addition to the modern home.

    Hit The Road With Van Curtains

    HIT THE ROAD

    If you have a van, camper or large SUV and are looking to make your vehicle something more than just a mode of transportation, such as a place to catch a nap or decent night's sleep while traveling, you might want to consider adding some divider curtains.

    GET CREATIVE

    If you search online for creative ways to add curtains to your vehicle, you will come across several blogs of adventurous travelers sharing how they turned their van/SUV/camper into a home on wheels by doing just that. Some were creative by using wire affixed to each side of the van, while others used velcro on the ceiling. We are all about being innovative in your efforts but if you are looking for a solid, secure way to cover your windows or divide the front from the back to create separate spaces, we can help.

    QUALITY PRODUCTS

    Curtain-Tracks customers David and Deborah added curtain tracks and curtains to their 1995 EuroVan Camper a few years ago and they used several of our products.They travel frequently and were looking for a way to create a divider between the front and the back of their camper. They used 3112 Curtain Track. It is made of PVC Plastic and is available in white, brown, gray, and black. Customers can easily drill mounting holes during installation and it is flexible for arched applications. They added 3115 Curtain Track End Caps, and 3091 Snap Tape, which can be sewn onto curtains and attached to the 3070 Snap Carriers to create ripple fold draperies and curtain panels (which Deborah made).


    LOOKING GOOD

    Once it was all installed, the curtains were used to close off the back of the van. We think the end result is fantastic and even included their photos in our website Photo Gallery or you can read more about their project on their blog.
