Shower Curtain Components

Shower Curtain

A shower curtain has three basic components:

  1. Rod
  2. Rings
  3. Cloth(s)


The rod fixes the shower curtain to a wall and keeps it in place. The rod can be straight or bend. It may be open-ended or form an entire loop.


The rings function as attachment points to connect the cloth(s) to the rod. The rings allow flexible movement across the rod so that it enables to open or cloth the shower curtain unit.


There is at least one cloth, but there can be also multiple clothes to allow sliding the entry into multiple ways, i.e. left and right. There can be also multiple layers of clothes of different materials (e.g. transparent material inside and textile material outside).


In following an educational video is provided that explains how you can exchange your old shower curtain cloth if you have purchased a high-end Wuttke Tech. product and want to install the new unit:
