Full Example Planning Session

We have created full example planning session videos to show you how to plan an entire project! This begins with your panel configuration and goes through guidelines for ordering the hardware you need to put it all together. Choose the video with a tracking or Velcro® top attachment to get off to a fast start.

Tracking Planning Session

Velcro® Planning Session

Let’s Determine a Path

There is a subtle difference in the path curtains will take depending on what type of columns or you have. There are two types of paths to take, an inside (columns) hang, or an outside (columns) hang. The path you take depends on the “shape” of columns that you have as well as the recommended number of panels. If we can seal to a perfectly straight edge (regular Column) , we want to take advantage of that opportunity to maximize space and performance of your curtains. If you have irregularly shaped columns, we will need to plan in such away that we never have to directly seal the straight edge of the curtain to a non-linear edge.

Regular or Irregular Columns

Regular Columns

Irregular Columns

A regular column has a straight edge that makes for a good sealing surface with marine snaps. We recommend an outside hang ending panels at corner columns.

Irregular columns do not have this straight edge to snap to, so panels will straddle irregular corner columns with our elastic cord to “pinch” the center of the straddling panel to an irregular corner column.

Two Top Attachment Types

Tracking Option

Velcro® Option

We offer Outdoor Curtain Tracking and Velcro® top attachments. Tracking allows you to open your curtains sliding them side to side. Velcro® is fixed at the top and does not slide.

Velcro top attachment is obviously less expensive because there is no need for our tracking hardware. Both are easy to install. Velcro® is almost always an outside hang. For tracking… well, it depends on the shape of your columns.
