Blackout Curtains

Safety is one of the highest priorities when dividing a large room into individual work    areas. PL Systems Inc. curtains use a Modacrylic material as a major percentage of the      curtain content. In addition to Modacrylic Self Extinguishing Fabric, SEF, (38%), our curtains contain Saran Flat Monofilament, (30%) for curtain strength, Viscose Rayon (26%) for softness and Polyester (6%) to prevent wrinkles. The back side of the curtain made of vinyl to prevent light penetration.

The properties of this material lend itself as an ideal product to be used in many Laboratories such as Laser Labs Class I-IV  Darkroom/Blackout applications,  Infra-Red, Ultra-Violet Measurement, Gene Separation Silver Halide and many others.

 Curtain is custom designed to the width of the opening permitting movement of curtains in either direction of the track. The outside vertical edges of each curtain are supplied with “Velcro” quick seal strips to facilitate “light-trap” overlaps for easy attachment to walls.

The valance shall be made of the same blackout curtain material, with a sewn-on Velcro strip, and shall be mounted to the curtain track assembly using Velcro supplied with track.

Track The track is constructed of satin anodized aluminum designed for surface mounting, and to the underside of the ceiling.  The track is extruded aluminum box-channel 1-1/4″ x 7/8″ slotted on the underside to receive two-wheeled carriers.  The track also serves as an integral part of the valance assembly.  Fastening should be made not more than 18″ on centers.  Corners, where required, are supplied as one piece, 12″ radius 90-degree track sections.  Tracks are supplied, as required, with hook carriers, end caps, snap-outs, and connectors, of the sleeve type.
