Care Home Curtains Measuring Guide
When ordering care home curtains online with Dayex®, we require accurate measurements for our made-to-measure service to ensure the best finish to your room. Follow the simple guide below to provide the best results:
Measure your existing track or pole width. If no existing track, measure the length you require the track or pole to be.
Measure your required drop from top of the pole or track, down to where you would like the curtains to finish.
- Normally allow at least 150mm (15cm/6”) for the track/pole width over and above the window reveal width each side, to allow for stack back. The larger the window, the more to allow.
- Eyelet curtains: the standard upstand of fabric above the pole is 30mm (3cm/1 2/8”). Please take this in to account when measuring the drop.
- Poles and tracks are supplied in set lengths, and will need to be cut to size using a hacksaw.
- When ordering curtains with tiebacks, tieback wall hooks are only supplied if a track or pole is ordered. If you are not ordering a track or pole and require tieback wall hooks, please specify on order.
