Net curtain tracks

Moved to new apartment and their are twin rails built into the ceiling.
I have net curtains and need to hang them.
What do I need to hang net to track. My nets came with plastic hook things?
What do I hook that to?
Never dealt with these before?

Re: Net curtain tracks

Not entirely sure what kind of curtains you have, but if the rails look anything like this, you'll find "holes" on one side. Mine are on the right, but I guess that depends how they were put up. This is where you put the plastic hooks in - one after the other.

Fiddly work. But once they are up, quite handy.

Re: Net curtain tracks

Can you identify the curtain rails from here: http://www.hamotec-ag.ch/de/sortimen...-57#detail-pdf ?
Note the size of the running slot in the rails.

Re: Net curtain tracks

You should have a "stop" at one end or the other which could look like a small screw .
If you take this out, you can feed in the hooks to hang your curtains.

Beware though, there are 2 sizes -mini and maxi so check before buying, although I think Ikea do some that fit both depending on which way up you put them .

If you don't have this screw-like stop, I bought mine in Manor for a couple bucks.

Re: Net curtain tracks

There is a twin rail going from wall to wall.
One side has a cut out ie access point for runner/slider.
Would the net curtain go in the inside or outer rail? I assume outer

If by net curtain you mean the white see-through ones which let almost all light through, and you want to add another curtain which does filter light more, you put the net curtain on the rail which is closer to the glass and the other curtain on the rail which is closer to the center of your room.

That only matters if you also have "Nachtvorhänge", the kind you can't see thru, which is why they're pulled back during the day otherwise the daylight wouldn't get into the room.

If you have both you want the day curtains (usually white-ish, perhaps what you call net curtains) close to the window, as otherwise you'd need to pull them back in order to draw the night curtains.

As for the gap on either side: Make sure to have one slider on the outside side in order to stop the curtain when you draw it, thereby making sure the full window is covered without you tediously adjusting the curtain every time. So the sequence on the left is glider, plug, glider, glider, glider, ..., and inverted on the right side.
