Weather protection curtains are typically made from fabrics that include acrylics, polyvinyl, canvas, and other types of special textiles. The deployment of the curtains can either be “dropped” or slid/traversed; let’s take a quick look at the differences between the two.
- The curtains in a drop system are literally lowered down to cover the desired area.
- The curtains are made to be either flat or combined with vinyl windows.
- The curtains create a solid wall once they are “dropped” down and can be combined with other drop curtains to create a “room” outdoors.
- Drop curtains can be attached to awnings and other shade structures.
- The curtains can be rolled up and put out of site.
- Much like the curtains you see in your home, slide or traverse curtains are gathered up to the sides and drawn open or closed by using a track or pole as a guide.
- The curtains slide along the track or traverse along a pole using rings or other hardware that is attached to the cloth of the curtain.
- The outdoor drop curtains can be designed with folds and other patterns, much like the curtains you see in your home can be.
- Slide or traverse curtains end up being pulled to the sides, and thus, can be seen when not in use.
