    I'm setting up a HT in my basement. I'd like to close off part of the basement in a temporary fashion. I'm thinking of a large curtain or panels on a rail that I can move.
    Anyone have any ideas or experience in doing something like this?
    many thanks, Mark

    Hi Ace, the divider needs to be moved regularly as we have our orchids on the other side of where the divider would be and in order to reach that area we need to stand in the finished portion of the basement.
    I was thinking of a big curtain, but it is difficult to find a heavy weight material that will block light from high power bulbs (for orchids).
    Any ideas appreciated. Mark

    These by chance wouldn't be SMOKEABLE orchids, would they? (wink, wink).
    Sorry to be a smart-aleck. I was actually thinking of installing some kind of curtain in my basement too, because my wife REALLY doesn't like the idea of walling off a section permanently. I think the curtain idea is better than sliding panels, which could potentially rattle every time the LFE signal kicks in.
    If you cannot find a good thick curtain at a reasonable price, maybe try sewing two back-to-back, because you're going to want it to look good on both sides anyway. You could even sandwich a third layer of some light-blocking material between them. Let me know if you come up with anything easier.

    How would you mount that to the ceiling on some sort of a slider? Is there a company that does this?
