Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do you make shower curtains?
A: Yes, we manufacture shower curtains for hospitals and all healthcare facilities. These curtains are available in multiple colors and sizes. Available for ceiling mounted track, or tracks/bars down from the ceiling.
Q: Are disposable curtains available?
A: Yes, disposable privacy curtains are available in multiple sizes and colors.
Q: What are cubicle and shower curtain panels?
A: Instead of using one continuous width of fabric to cover a privacy curtain track, multiple panels are used. This eliminates the need for many different size curtains throughout the facility. Side snaps are typically used on these panel systems for increased privacy. There is a tremendous cost savings by having one universal size cubicle and shower curtain panel.
Q: Do your curtains have snaps?
A: Yes, snaps are located on each side of the cubicle and shower curtain panels linking the panels together for added privacy. When not using a cubicle curtain panel system, snaps are not used.

A: Yes, all our cubicle and shower curtains meet NFPA 701 flame spread requirements and vertical flammability.
Q: Are curtains antimicrobial?
A: Most of our curtains are antimicrobial, and we highly recommend clients select antimicrobial fabric and if the fabric does not have it, then an antimicrobial additive can be applied.

Q: How does your system compare to traditional cubicle ceiling mounted track and curtains?
A: PRVC privacy curtains can be replaced from the floor without the need for a ladder. This is faster and safer than traditional curtains. Our track system can allow the use of a patient lift to operate, while giving 100% privacy to the patient or patients in the room. Because our privacy tracks are not ceiling mounted, it eliminates the problems caused by light fixtures and a/c vents. The PRVC system cubicle and shower track can be placed at the most strategic locations for privacy effectiveness.
