CURTAIN INSTALL SPECS & INFO

CURTAIN SPECS & INSTALLATION INFO

Curtains are custom sized wall hanging made of knotted stoneware components. Both Curtains & PLT's use the same components- Pinched Discs or Shells, Press Beads, and Rings.

*Please note that these are general guidelines ONLY. Installation may need to be adjusted to accommodate the weight of the curtain based upon wall type and stud location while using appropriate anchors. MQuan Studio is not liable for any damage done during or after installation.

  • Ordered by Width x Length dimensions
  • Width is an approximate measurement of the ceramic portion width
  • Length is an approximate measurement from the top of the bar to the bottom of the last ceramic component
  • All curtains require installation assembly

COMPONENT INFO:

  • Bevelled Bars are 1' longer than the width of the ceramic and available in unfinished Walnut (top) or White oak (bottom)
  • Mounting brackets are not included and available to purchase in wood, iron or brass

  • Iron & brass brackets have 2 x 1/4" hole per bracket

      VIDEO LINKS:

        • Layered components & macrame wall hangings have a 'bunny ear' loop that slides on the bar. These arrive taped in place, but if the loop needs to be established, instructions can be found here for discs/shells and macrame
          • Layered shells & layered discs sometimes 'kink' when first installed. A video for straightening them can be found here
            • Screws & Anchors are NOT shipped with wall mounts to insure that appropriate screws and anchors are used for the type of wall that the wall hanging is mounted on as well as to accommodate the weight.  Please be sure to check weight based on square footage
