Frequently asked questions about elevator curtains

How do you hang an elevator curtain?

There are two main ways to hang elevator curtains. Either you hang it above the window or you hang it in the window niche. If it is hung above the window, attach the lift curtain so that it goes a bit outside the window.

How long should an elevator curtain be?

Measure the length of how far down you want the lift curtain to hang. It looks best if the curtain ends at the windowsill.

How wide should an elevator curtain be?

You must measure the window itself, from the inside of the window frame. Then you choose whether you want the curtains to hang inside the window niche itself or outside. If you want the curtain to hang outside the window, add as many centimeters to the width as you want it to go outside the window. If your window is 120cm and you want it to extend 5cm outside, add 10cm (5cm +5cm). If you want the lift curtain to sit in the window, select the inside measurement of your window. Most elevator curtains are sold in measurements of 10 cm, for example 120, 130 and 140 cm, but we sew up elevator curtains according to your exact measurements so that you can get a curtain that fits exactly in your window.

How do you wash elevator curtains?

The best thing to do is try to avoid washing the elevator curtain. The best way to do this is to regularly dust your lift curtains with a vacuum cleaner or take down your curtains and shake and air the curtains. You can remove small stains with a clean damp sponge or cloth and lukewarm water. In the case of heavily soiled lift curtains, we recommend that you submit the curtain to dry cleaning.
