How hard is it to install the industrial curtain track?
It is very easy. All of the components simply fit into each other and connect with set screws. The installation is very intuitive. If you have any difficulty simply call or email us and we will walk you through the process.
Can I simply drill straight through the track and into the ceiling / structure?
Yes. This is called a flush mount install and is very common. Simply drill through the middle of the track and use a small wood screw, bolt, Tek screw…ect into your structure. Space the holes about every 3-5′.
What keeps the rollers from rolling out of the end of the track?
Each track comes with end stops that contain the rollers inside of the curtain track.
How close together do I need the track supports?
The track should be supported approximately every 5′ with a track support. The farther apart the track supports, the greater the deflection. If you have a relatively light weight curtain then you could space the supports out to about 8′ apart.
What size threaded rod do I use for the threaded rod curtain track?
You would use a 3/8″ threaded rod which you can get from any local hardware store.
Whats a “splice” and what is a “connector”?
A Splice connects two pieces of track together. A Connector holds the track up. Keep in mind we also have splice connectors that are also a track supports. The one show in the graphic below is only a straight splice connector which does not hold the track up.
