Industrial Curtain Rail

Industrial Curtain Hangers
All industrial curtain track features industrial curtain hangers. These hangers roll inside of the track and allow the curtain or sport netting to move effortlessly forward and backwards. The rollers are fabricated from nylon or for heavier curtains or nets, they can feature steel wheels. Generally we suggest these hangers be connected to the curtain every 12”. Nylon Rollers have 40lb capacity, steel rollers have a 75lb capacity.
Industrial Curtain Corners
Almost any configuration is possible with the use of the 90 degree radius corners. These 24” radius corners allow the curtain to roll from one side to the other with ease.

Types of Curtain Rail Mounts
Ceiling Mount Curtain Track
Choose this mounting style if you want your industrial curtain track to mount to the ceiling with only a few inches of open gap.
Wall Mount Curtain Track
This curtain track mount is designed for mounting the track next to a vertical wall or stud. This can be parallel to the wall, or perpendicular.
Chain or Cable Curtain Track
Like the threaded rod, a chain supported curtain track is also good for spanning large distances. Both chain or cable can be used to hold up the track.
Threaded Rod Curtain Track
If the distance between the anchor points above is higher than where you want the curtain track, then a threaded rod mount might work well. Steel rods support the track and span the distance between the track and the ceiling.
I-Beam Curtain Track
When connecting to a truss, I-Beam or any other horizontal steel support this style of mount works best. Once connected, you simply tighten down the set screw.
What is the curtain track constructed from?
The curtain tracks are constructed from either galvanized steel or stainless steel. They both resist rusting however the stainless steel is better suited for ocean side use, chemical wash down applications..ect. Keep in mind the stainless steel hardware is about 3 to 4 times the cost of the galvanized hardware. Also note that all the hardware on the site that you see is the same as the stainless steel version.
How thick is the curtain track?
The standard curtain track is 16 gauge thickness. (Note 16 gauge = 0.0635 inches). At this time, we do not offer 12 gauge thickness (0.1084 inches) because it is often times overkill for hanging curtains.
