The installation was strategically carried out overnight to minimize disruption to Peninsula Group’s operations and fit perfectly with their refurbishment schedule.

    Cubicle curtain track manufacture & installation for beauty school

    Corona Contracts recently completed a successful project for another happy client in the North West. Our team designed, produced, and installed 48 custom cubicle curtain tracks for a prominent beauty school in the region as part of their ongoing refurbishment. Our tailored design perfectly met the school’s functional needs, offering a quick and convenient way to segment the room with smooth and reliable curtain tracks. The tracks also look great, with a satin silver finish which is sympathetic to the other fixtures and fittings in the school. This project is a perfect example of our commitment to quality craftsmanship and customer satisfaction. By handling both the design and installation processes in-house, we were able to ensure seamless coordination and communication throughout the project. This minimised potential issues, kept everything on schedule and guaranteed a quality end result.
