Curtain Tracking Installation Tip
Prior to installing the curtain tracking hardware, the job should be laid out on the floor first by placing the track on the floor in its intended position and the fittings in their location. This will prove valuable not only in determining whether the required number of parts and/or accessories is actually on hand, but also in determining their proper location and placement.
Ocelco’s curtain tracking is made with 16 gauge extruded aluminum. Our curtain tracking is sold in 8 foot lengths. The curtain tracking can be attached to many ceiling types, screw directly to solid ceilings, use ceiling clips to attach curtain tracking to suspended ceiling or use suspension tube to drop curtain tracking in areas with high ceilings or where obstructions prevent mounting the curtain track directly to the ceiling. Curtain tracking curves are bent to 12 inch radius, available in 90 deg. and 45 deg. bends, 2 feet by 2 feet. Other curtain tracking bends and curves are available upon special request.
Use ceiling clips to attach curtain tracking to T-bar on suspended ceilings. Recommended spacing is every 2 feet 6 inches.
Use anodized aluminum sleeve for joining and extending curtain track sections. A splicing clamp should be used whenever joining two pieces of curtain track together to assure proper alignment of curtain track channels.
Use curtain tracking end stops to prevent curtain carriers from slipping out of the end of curtain tracking. A end stop should be placed at both ends of the curtain tracking setup. One end should contain a snap out fitting in the end stop, to allow for easy installation and replacement of curtain carriers.
Snap Out Fitting
Use a snap out fitting along with a end stop at the end of you curtain track to allow for easy installation and replacement of curtain carriers. Snap out fittings easily come out to allow access to the track to install or replace your curtain carriers, without having to remove the curtain track from the ceiling.
