Do I need mesh at the top of my cubicle curtain? If so, why?

Because we said so! Just kidding. Cubicle curtains come with mesh, or ‘netting’, at the top, as required by fire code, mandated by your local Fire Marshal. If your hospital curtains are being installed either in a medical facility or anywhere near fire sprinklers or an exit sign or where patients may be immobile, you are required to have mesh at the top of your privacy curtain. It’s best to check with your local Fire Marshal if you are not sure whether you need the mesh or not, however, we highly recommend being safe over very, very sorry, and ensuring there is mesh added to your cubicle curtains.
