Hospital Curtain Track Equipment
There are many different pieces of curtain track hardware that you will need to setup your completely setup you curtain track. We’re going to go through every piece that you will need. Let’s start off with the basics with Straight Curtain Track. All of this curtain track comes with the option of being silver or powder coated white.
Straight Track is used when you need hospital curtains to go straight for an 8 ft. distance. Depending on the setup you are looking for, you may only need one piece of straight track for your main setup. This track can also be connected to curved track with hardware shown below.
This style of curved track is 2′ x 2′ and curved at a 90° angle. Curved track is used when you are working your hospital curtains around corners, beds or any other obstacle. This track can be connected to straight track with the hardware shown below.
This style of curved track is 2′ x 2′ and curved to a 45°. Curved track is used when you are working your hospital curtains around corners, beds or any other obstacle. This track can be connected to straight track with the hardware shown below.
Splicing clamps are the curtain track hardware necessary to join two pieces of straight track together. Anytime two pieces of straight track meet, you will need one splicing clamp. There is more hardware to connect straight track to curved track below.
End stops are needed when your curtain track does not meet a wall. After your hospital curtain is in place you can this end stop on to prevent the carriers from falling off of the track.
Snap out fittings are used to easily snap off your end stops. When you need to clean or replace your hospital curtains, the end stops may be difficult to get off by themselves. Snap out fittings are not necessary but highly recommended for easy replacement of your hospital curtains.
Single carriers are need to be placed every 6″ to hold the weight of your hospital curtains. If you have 8 ft. of tracking you will need 16 single carriers. Single carriers glide with your curtain tracking and attach to your hospital curtains. – 1/2″ Width.
