Track Layout & Measuring Suggestions For Cubicle Curtains & Track
If this is your first time measuring for cubicle curtains and track we suggest drawing your layout on a piece of paper. Please print a page of our special graph paper
for use with your layout.
Curtains for Existing Track:
New Installation of Curtain and Track:
Measure the track from end to end. If you give us track size, we will add 10% to the track width to calculate the curtain width.
|Track with bends:
Measure each length of the track as if it were squared off, give us the total length, and tell us how many bends you need. Based on that information, we will calculate the correct curtain width.
Since itís usually difficult to measure for track on a ceiling, we suggest measuring on the floor below where you plan to install the track. Measure along the floor and treat rounded corners as squared off corners, for measuring purposes.
To determine if a bend is a left bend or right bend, you need to picture the layout as if you are looking top down.
For tracks that are adjacent to one another or "run into" one another, we recommend adding 8" to the track length for the overlap.

How to Measure for Blackout Curtains
If this is your first time measuring for blackout curtains and track we suggest drawing your layout on a piece of paper. Please print a page of our special graph paper
for use with your layout.
When measuring for a blackout curtain, the most important measurements are the height of the ceiling to the floor and the width of the curtain. It is crucial that these measurements are accurate to ensure that all light is blocked. The width of the curtain will need to be equal to the total length of your track plus 10% to ensure sufficient coverage.
If you are ordering a setup with a straight length of track, you will most likely want the length of your track to be equal to the width of the room where it will be installed.
We highly recommend that you add a valance to your curtain setup. It is a piece of fabric designed to block light from between the curtain track and the curtain, and it attaches to the side of the track with Velcro.
When theyíre properly installed, these curtains can block out almost all light. They are not designed for use in a laser lab. We do carry Laser Curtains, but they are very unique and are not offered on our website. If you want to order them, please call our customer service department at 800-791-2946 and they will be happy to help you.
