Cubicle Curtain Tracks
Goelst manufacture and install made-to-measure cubicle curtain tracks in accordance with customer requirements to include all necessary accessories. Due to their quality finish, Goelst tracks are suitable for use in wet rooms, they are functional, robust and durable and are supplied with dust-resistant PVC cover strip. Other components associated with privacy tracks include IV drip supports, IV hooks and curtain holdbacks etc. The track can be both wall and ceiling mounted creating a stable, secure installation.

Electrical hospital curtain tracks
Our hospital curtain tracks can also be supplied as electrical units. Patients can press a button themselves whenever they want privacy. This is more convenient for the patient and time-saving for personnel.

LRS – Load Release System for Reduced Ligature Risk
The Goelst Load Release System is our solution to the healthcare sector's requirement that cubicle curtain tracks and window tracks should release where certain high risk situations exist. This unique, patented solution allows the track to release from its contact points under momentary loads of approximately 35 kg.

The LRS system was developed specifically for Goelst cubicle curtain tracks. At peak loads of more than 35 kg, the tracks will detach correctly providing they have been installed in accordance with Goelst specifications and by qualified, trained personnel.

LRS gliders can be used in our wide-channel profiles. The gliders pop out of the track whenever the curtain is subjected to sudden or high loads. This helps reduce the risk of ligature while at the same time reducing damage to the curtains/curtain tracks. For safety reasons, flexible plastic hooks should be used. The LRS system is particularly suitable for hospitals, nursing homes, homes for the elderly, mental health facilities and other healthcare institutions.

You can turn to Goelst for all your customization requirements (bending the rail, curves, assembly etc.). You will receive a free quote based on your drawings and specifications. You are assured of clear communication with the experienced project managers of the Goelst project department.

The Goelst KidsRail
Goelst kidsrailA hospital does not look like home, no one likes to be there. A color makes it a bit more cheerful.
That’s why our privacy rails 4100 and 5100 are available in all colors of the rainbow. So that children’s departments are no longer dependent on colors for adults. And everything looks a bit happier. A bit like home.
The different components of each rail system can be made in one or in different colors. The plastic parts such as end caps and gliders are delivered in black, but can be ordered in custom colors unders certain conditions.

The Goelst Extension glider
Goelst kidsrailThe Goelst extension glider is a unique solution for privacy rails in healthcare, incase the rail needs to be mounted to the ceiling. The extension glider is a rotating glider with S-hook.
Usually, a separation rail is not mounted against the ceiling, but when the rail is mounted against the ceiling, a ‘mesh’ part is placed in the curtain for the operation of sprinklers and good ventilation.
A good alternative to this solution is the Goelst Extension glider. The rail can be mounted against the ceiling, and the the curtain can be lowered from the rail thanks to the extension glider.
The extension glider can be applied to privacy rails 4100 and 5100.
