9. Q: How are the disposable curtains packaged?
A: The curtains arrive in boxes and each curtain is individually bagged. (Please see our “curtains per box” chart for number of curtains in each box. This varies by size.) The bag opens at the top, allowing you to attach your curtains to the carriers before removing them from the bag. Each curtain also has a self-auditing label where you can record the date of installation.

11. Q: Are there different shapes available for the cutouts on the Integral disposable curtains?
A: There are two shapes available for the mesh cutouts, a pentagon or a circle. We recommend the pentagon shape, since it makes the curtain more stable than when circular cutouts are used.
12. Q: How many curtains come in each box?
A: The number of curtains per box depends on the size of the curtains you are ordering. Please refer to our spreadsheet detailing quantities per box. You must order a minimum of one box in one color or pattern. Boxes cannot be mixed or broken up.

A: We will have mini-samples available per request in every color or pattern.
14. Q: What carriers do we need to use with the disposable curtains?
A: Our disposable curtains come standard with our special Snap-In Carriers. These carriers are tilted and pressed in until they fit inside the track, making it unnecessary to use track pullouts.
15. Q: Will it be necessary to upgrade my carriers to use disposable curtains?
A: No, it is not necessary to upgrade your carriers. The disposable curtains can be used with any carrier type, however the Snap-In carrier has the added convenience of ease of installation.
16. Q: Why do we need disposable curtains?
A: Disposable curtains are especially useful in settings such as Isolation Rooms, Emergency Rooms, and Burn Units, where maintenance and Infection Control may become an issue with Traditional or Permanent curtains. They can provide cost savings over time when the maintenance of traditional curtains is factored in. Please refer to our “Cost Savings Analysis” Chart for more information.

A: Yes. The MSDS sheets are available should you need them, as well as specification sheets.
A: There are 3 conditions that most hospitals used as basis for changing the disposable curtains. (1) Change out whenever they are visibly soiled. (2) After any isolation patient. (3) Quarterly thought-out the facility ( or as often as infection control suggest).
A: Measure from the track to the floor. Typically curtains hang 12-15” off the floor. Deduct this floor clearance from the track to floor measurement and that is the finished curtain height.
