I would like to hang some drapes or curtains across the wall that my screen is on. There are windows on either side of the screen and would like to have system where by everything is covered, or the curtains open to reveal the 100 inch screen, or open to the windows.
This means I need a continuous curtain rod / rail of about 15 feet. I can put a brace in the middle (also at the center of the top side of the screen).
I have searched for such a thing, but have had no luck.
My current solution is to tension a wire cable across the span, with a support in the middle. I will use turn buckles to make it very tight and run loops on the cable to hang the 9 foot or so curtains. There will be 4 panels of fabric, two on each side of the center brace. My biggest concern is sagging. It will be a lot of fabric hanging on the cable and the longest and the unsupported span is 7.5 feet.
Any other options. I am sure there must be since theaters etc have very long spans of curtains. Where does one find a really long curtain rail / rod and how much are they?
