Most fabrics used to construct cubicle curtains are Panel Cut. The fabric is unrolled and cut to the desired cut height of the curtain, producing a panel. The number of panels used is determined by the desired curtain width. If more than one panel is needed, the panels are sewn together.

In the diagram to the left the fabric cut height is 84" and the cut width is 144:. After the top/bottom hems and seams are sewn, this will produce a curtain with a finished height of 80" (if no mesh is used) and a finished width of approximately 135". If 20" mesh is required the curtain height would be 100", 80" of fabric and 20" of mesh. 

 

 

 

 

 

 





railRoad2Railroaded fabric does not require panels to be cut and will produce a seamless curtain; however, the height of the curtain is limited to the width of the fabric roll. The fabric is unrolled and cut to the desired cut width.

In the diagram to the right the fabric cut height is 72" and the cut width is 144". After the top/bottom hems are sewn, this will produce a curtain with a finished height of 68" (if no mesh is used) and a finished width of approximately 138". If 20" mesh is required the curtain height would be 88", 68" of fabric and 20" of mesh. If extra curtain height is required taller mesh must be used (up to 40").
