1. Can shower tracks be cut?
2. What shapes can the ceiling shower
rod come in?
Design Concepts will cut the ceiling
shower rods (tracks) to any dimensions you give us. If you are
not sure of the length you need, the track can easily be cut with a hack
saw, and a new hole for the mounting screw drilled using the end cap as a
3. How does the ceiling shower rod
attach to the ceiling? Does it need to be attached to studs?
Shower Rods page shows the most popular shapes, e.g. L-shaped,
Oval, Neo-angle, however many shapes can be made combining straight
sections, 90- and/or 45-degree corners. Connectors are used to
connect corner and straight sections. All corners have a 12-inch
radius. The connector must be a minimum of 15 inches from a
90-degree corner and 9 inches from a 45-degree corner. For
example, the two long sides of an Oval-shaped ceiling rod must be 30
inches apart, i.e. the connector 15 inches from each
4. What comes with my shower rod
It is screwed directly into drywall
anchors inserted into the ceiling drywall. It does not need to be
attached at stud locations. The screw and anchors come with the
track. However, if desired, the track can be
recessed in the drywall and then attached to studs with the
screws. Detailed installation instructions come with an
5. Where should the ceiling shower
rod be mounted?
The package will have:
- Ceiling shower rod cut to your
- Roller carriers with hooks for hanging
the shower curtain.
- 2 End-caps
- Connectors if the track comes in two
or more sections.
- Screws and Drywall Anchors
- Installation Instructions.
6. What is the shower track made of
and what is it's size?
The track should be placed above the
outside edge of a bathtub or over the center of the curb on a stand-
alone shower so that the shower curtain slants slightly into the
tub or shower when in use. When slanted slightly in, the weighted
curtain will rest against the tub or shower curb and minimize 'sucking
in' of the curtain when the shower is turned on.
The track is an extruded aluminum alloy
and available in either a satin anodized aluminum (Brushed Aluminum
which looks much like brushed nickel) finish or a white acrylic
electrostatic applied paint finish. The tracking measures 1 3/8
inches wide by 3/4 inches deep. The Carriers are constructed of
nylon rollers and stainless steel bead chain and hard aluminum
hooks. The carriers glide with ease.
1. What are the shower curtains
2. What colors are shower curtains
The curtains have a water barrier
protection on nylon fabric. They are similar to a 'good quality'
hotel fabric shower curtain. The shower curtains can be used as a
stand alone shower curtain or as a liner.
We have curtains in stock in white, white
with micromesh insert, parchment and champagne. The parchment and
champagne colors cannot be ordered with the micromesh. Other
colors are available as special order, however, they take 5 weeks or
more to get. Call if you want to discuss other colors.
3. What are the advantages of the
micromesh insert? What is it made of?
4. In what sizes are curtains
The mesh insert allows for light and
more air circulation in the shower. The micromesh has a woven
pattern and is 100% polyester.
5. How is the shower curtain
The length and width can be adjusted to
your specifications. You may either tell us the exact size of the
shower curtain you need; or when using our shower tracks, and with the
ceiling height measurement, we will calculate the recommended dimensions
of the shower curtain.
6. Are curtains washable?
Shower curtains have a reinforced triple
fold header and side seams are double fold hems. They have
aluminum rust proof grommets for hanging the curtain and have a heavy
metal chain weight covered with a mildew resistant material in the
The shower curtains clean easily with
soap and water. They can be machine washed in warm or cool water
using mild detergent and no bleach. They can be tumble dried on a
low setting or line dried. If desired, the shower curtain can be
ironed on a low perm-press setting. Care directions are on a tag
sewn into the top hem.
MEASUREMENTS NEEDED FOR
1. What measurements are needed
for a ceiling shower rod??
The measurements needed are illustrated
We need the length and width, or in the
case of the neo-angle track, the length of each leg starting on the left
and moving to the right when looking at the track from outside the
shower. For the L-shaped track we need to know which
side the corner is on, left or right. All corners are made with a
12-inch radius. The dimensions shown above are examples. We
can make the tracks to whatever dimensions you need.
2. What measurements are needed
for a shower curtain?
When we adjust the length of a curtain
for use with one of our tracks, we need to know whether the curtain will
hang into a bathtub or be used with a stand alone shower, and the
distance from the ceiling to the bottom of the tub or shower pan. With
this information we will calculate the correct length of the
If the curtain will be used in an
application not using our ceiling shower rods, please specify the actual
desired width and length.
