Features of Gary Manufacturing Navy Rack Curtains

We offer a range of options for rack curtains to ensure you get the features you need. These include:

  • Colors and Materials. From nylon and vinyl to polyester and specialty fabrics, you can choose from a variety of materials to best suit your requirements. Natural fibers allow for air flow in humid environments. We manufacture Navy rack curtains in blue, navy, hunter green, red, and more.
  • Closures and Tie Backs: Customize your closures and tie backs with velcro, snaps, L-shaped cutouts, fan cutouts, and fan covers.
  • Sizes. Standard size is 45″ W x 22″ H per piece, and each bunk will require a pair of curtains that meets in the middle with velcro. We create custom sizes to fit the correct bunk size and properly block out exterior light.

Our rack curtains also offer slider tab compatibility and optional pockets for storage.

What Are Navy Rack Curtains?

Navy rack curtains surround each bunk on Navy and Coast Guard ships. Typically hung in pairs for easy opening and closing, rack curtains block the light and offer privacy for the sailors when they go to bed or need some time by themselves to recharge. Sizing is adjustable to accommodate bunks of all sizes and configurations, with customizable features to ensure sailors have the closures, colors, and materials that meet their needs.

What Are Berth Curtains?

While rack curtains cover individual bunks, berth curtains are for the entire sleeping area. They can be used to darken a room, cover portholes, and divide the room. Because sailors typically have different jobs that put them on different sleeping schedules, the ability to darken a space at any time of day and divide a room according to schedule can reduce distractions for the sailors who are trying to rest. Adequate sleep is essential for optimal health and work performance, and rack and berth curtains are a simple way to ensure sailors get the sleep they need.

Benefits of Rack Curtains

The primary benefit of a rack curtain is privacy. Working in close quarters with many other people can make it hard for a sailor to find time alone to rest and recharge. These curtains allow you to divide the space and offer privacy, even in close proximity to fellow crewmates. Other advantages of rack curtains include:

  • Rack curtains are made of thick material, which creates a darker room to promote sleeping. They can also be customized with light blocking lining.
  • By adding pockets to your rack curtains, sailors have a place to store personal or work-related items.
  • Additional customization, with cut-outs, tie backs, and more, makes it simple to create an ideal rack curtain solution for your needs.
