Stall Width Shower Curtains

Are you searching for stall width shower curtains? 

A special size shower curtain that’s narrow, or extra wide?  Then look no further! We manufacture them.

Stall width shower curtains

First, let’s cover the sizes of shower stall widths.  Remember, the width is the wall to wall dimension, (left to right.)  Here are several widths for stall shower openings:

  • 30”
  • 36”
  • 38”
  • 40”
  • 42”
  • 46”
  • 50”
  • 60”

Regardless of the width size, you will need to order a wider/larger shower curtain to ensure complete coverage.  (We recommend an additional 3” on either side, but you can order more for a fuller width.)

One option for stall width shower curtains is to order our Dobie fabric.  It’s what most hotels order, and it’s great because it’s waterproof, and an industry leader. Another option is to order our vinyl.  The 10 gauge Pebble is our top-selling plastic curtain.  In either case, no shower curtain liner is required, however, you can hang an additional decorative stall curtain on the outside.

We know of several very happy customers who’ve been selling our stall width shower curtains in their catalog for many years, and we’ve seen them in gyms and universities all over the country.  People always remark on how happy they are they’ve finally found a manufacturer who can get the size right for their stall!

In case you’re wondering, our minimum commercial order is 12 curtains, but if you need just one stall size curtain, you may order that too.  They just cost a little more. For more information on stall width shower curtains, and all products we produce, contact us today: 1 800 775 0804 or request a quote.

Clear Top Shower Curtain in Vinyl or Fabric

Clear top vinyl shower curtain in vinyl, with mesh header for institutional use.

Clear Top Shower Curtain in Vinyl or FabricWe manufacture clear top shower curtains in vinyl or fabric for use in all kinds of institutions. Recently we got a call from The Menninger Clinic in Houston. They were looking to replace their shower curtains, with clear tops. It was really important for them to allow for privacy, but still be able to monitor their patients.
Our clear top curtains meet standards of regular shower curtains, but you may customize them depending on the needs of your project:

  • Size
  • Material (vinyl thickness or fabric)
  • Size of clear top window
  • Header style (foldover with Velcro, hookless, etc.

They requested custom widths which we were able to do. The height is also custom.

  • 96 wide x 84 high
  • 91 wide x 84 high
  • 77 wide x 84 high

When we manufacture clear top curtains, we usually use our Velcro foldover, hookless, or just regular.

For more information on this and all the products we produce, contact us today: 1 800 775 0804 or request a quote.

Mesh Top Shower Curtains for Commercial Use

We manufacture mesh top shower curtains for commercial use.

The mesh sewn at the top facilitates light and air to pass through the mesh opening.  Some customers order the shower curtain with mesh, AND a clear plastic window, as shown in the photo. Mesh Top Shower Curtains

The mesh at the top of the curtain is 100% nylon and studded with rust-proof grommets every 5.5” for easy hanging.  The mesh is attached to a lower portion of the curtain with a double-needle stitch (2 rows of sewing) for extra strength.

The mesh top may also be ordered with a Velcro (hook and loop) along the top.  This allows for break-way applications and multiple hanging options if using ceiling track.

The lower panel can be made from heavy-duty 10 gauge vinyl, or medium weight 6 gauge.  Select from multiple colors, although most customers choose white or beige.  Vinyl is best for commercial applications, as it is very durable, and contains anti-bacterial properties to retard mildew growth.  Alternately, you may order our super repel polyester which is a water-resistant fabric.

Mesh top shower curtains are ideal for any area with patient monitoring, poor lighting in the stall, or cubicles with ceiling track.  All of our shower curtains are made here in the USA.  If you don’t see what you’re looking for, give us a call: 1 800 775 0804 or request a quote.
