Typically, when you mount an insulated curtain in a doorway it is mounted to a door header above it. This can be problematic because if the track mount lies flush with the door header, the curtain may not easily retract. These curtains need about 7 inches of clearance on both sides of the point where the grommet is, which is where it attaches to the track. This grommet, which allows the curtain to connect into the track, is also what creates the Thermo-Block Curtains ability to accordion fold and retract. However, if the track is flush against the wall, then the industrial curtain is going to drag against the wall and stick out at an angle.
A unique aspect of this installation is the customer used resourcefulness to cantilever the track off the wall 7 inches. However, AmCraft offers custom cantilever brackets that will allow a customer to achieve the same results as well. If you’re mounting parallel to or against a wall it is important to give the curtains space to retract or else the curtains will drag against the wall which will cause them to wear quicker.
