Head vs Face Fix

The largest range available in Australasia, including several of our own designs, tailored to meet New Zealand conditions and regulations.

The majority of styles are designed to “face-fix” to a vertical plane above the door, but some “head-fix” styles are carried for when the header must be fixed to a horizontal plane, eg in a corridor. Curtains can also be supplied on sliding track.

Visor-rail
Standard Light Weight Visor-rail - Face-fixing
  • For strip widths of up to 200mm wide.
  • Satisfies MPI Dairy requirements.
  • Can be modified to suit head fixing if required.

Heavy Duty Visor-rail - Face-fixing
  • For strip widths of 300mm and wider.
  • Satisfies MPI Dairy requirements.
  • Can be modified to suit head fixing if required.
  • Accommodates mounting by Tek-screws or nylon mushroom bolts.

Designed by FDT to meet MPI Dairy requirements by avoiding horizontal dust-ledges and providing a wipe clean surface. Like the visor on a knight’s helmet, a protective visor hinges down to conceal and protect the fasteners securing the PVC strips, providing a hygenic and smart finish. The header is plain mill finish aluminium, and the visor is powder-coated “Titania White.” The visor detaches from the front for curtain mounting and easy strip replacement.

Scandi sliding track
Scandi sliding track - Face-fixing
  • Accommodates 200 & 300mm strip, sheet PVC. Also 100 and 400mm strip subject to limitations.
  • Allows face or head fixing.
  • Locking pull cords prevent ‘wandering’.
  • Single, bi-parting, double and 90° flexible options available.
  • Continuous header eliminates leakage around sliding gear.
  • Multiple bearing wheels provide effortless tracking.

Designed in Scandinavia specifically for PVC strip curtains, the Scandi track allows the curtain to slide out of the way. The continuous strip carrier eliminates any leakage gaps between the rollers and the track. Multiple bearing-race rollers make opening and closing effortless. The slim profile of the track gives a smart appearance and also allow a variety of fixing methods to be used.
