Choosing Curtain Tracks Accessories

Jul 1, 2009 by

Topic: Curtains

Curtain tracks are an important part of the window covering as a whole but what accessories are available to improve how they are used?  Read on to find out.

What are Curtain Tracks?

Curtain tracks are a type of hanging system for your curtains.  There are four main types of curtain tracks.  PVC tracks are great for light and medium weight curtains but you cannot get cords to use with these tracks.  Aluminium is bendable, suitable for light and mid weight curtains, and can be used corded or uncorded.  Steel is a good option for heavy weight curtains and these tracks are always corded. Heavy duty aluminium is also available.

Uncorded tracks require you to manually open and close your curtains.  Corded tracks allow you to open and close the curtains by using a pull-cord, which is great if you have delicate fabrics, heavy curtains, tall windows, or a combination of any of these.

Types of Curtain Tracks Accessories

Curtain accessories help make your curtain tracks easier to use and more attractive. Some options include:

  • Brackets -- tracks come with brackets that can be fitted to the wall or the ceiling, depending on your needs.
  • Spare parts -- these could include things such as extra gliders, end stops, brackets, runners, and roller runners.
  • Extension brackets -- these allow you to extend the curtains further out from the wall.
  • Draw rods -- assist you with opening and closing curtains that are on uncorded tracks.
  • Spray lubricant -- helps the tracks to run more smoothly and prolongs the life of corded tracks.
  • Electrical operation -- wiring your curtains for electrical operation means that you can open and close your curtains at the push of a button, with no effort required from you.
