Sloped Roofs / Ceilings
How Do You Attach A Curtain To a Sloped Roof / Ceiling?
Attaching a curtain wall to a sloped ceiling / roof is a very common application. Depending on if you want to have a static position curtain or an operable curtain that rolls open will dictate which hardware you will need to use. The images below will help guide you to the correct hardware.
Movable Curtain - Suspended Track
The curtain track is suspended from above which is then attached to the structure of the building. The separation curtain can then roll side to side with ease to be removed almost completely out of the way.
Movable Curtain - Free Standing
The freestanding curtain track is suspended from below using vertical uprights. While this is a more expensive set up due to the additional hardware, it allows access above the curtain for gantry cranes. This setup is typically used when it is not ideal to support the curtain track from above.
Movable Curtain On Track - With Top Valance
Using either suspended curtain track or freestanding curtain track with the addition of a top valance. The curtain valance is used for additional separation in your building. This valance is usually ideal for temperature zoning or dust control. The bottom curtain opens and closes to allow full access while the top valance is static.
Static Position Curtain - Full Coverage
With this configuration you have one large curtain that only attaches at the top. The curtain is static in position so that it does not open or close. This configuration most often times features an access point like a strip door, roll up door or a swinging door to allow access to both sides for people and forklifts.
