There are rare circumstances (mostly industrial) where we have added weights, but weights pose problems for residential applications. First they need to be very heavy to do any good, and you run the risk of getting whacked hard during a stiff wind. Weights make the curtain hang funny and drive the bottom into the floor wearing it quickly, lastly curtains don’t bunch very well when using the tracking. Fixed attachment using a few strategically placed marine snaps is definitely the sensible way to keep the bottom fixed.
