Silent Gliss Colorama 2 Bioactive Fabric

Colorama 2 Bioactive is made from Colorama Trevira CS Bioactive with inherent silver ions to deliver antibacterial properties.  It is ideally suited to healthcare environments.  It is a wide width fabric and is available up to 335 cm wide in a range of 3 neutral colours, complementing a variety of modern interior design colour schemes and styles.  We would always recommend a sample is ordered prior to purchase as colours can vary on screens.  Please see the Fabric Swatches tab to order any samples.  All Silent Gliss fabrics are dyed before being woven which provides increased colour fastness and reduced colour fading.


Silent Gliss’s Colorama 2 Bioactive fabric is suitable for use on:

  • Curtains – wave curtains and the Swiss pleat curtain heading style
  • Roman Blinds
  • Roller Blinds
  • Vertical Blinds
  • Panel Glide Systems
  • Wintergarden Systems such as lantern windows

Curtain Application

Colorama 2 Bioactive lends itself beautifully to the wave curtain heading style.  Due to it being a wide width fabric if your curtain drop is less than the maximum fabric width we can make up your wave curtains without any joins for a seamless, polished finish.

We can also make up your curtains in the Swiss pleat heading style.  This delivers a soft, airy look and is less uniform than the wave curtain heading style.  You may wish to consider the Swiss pleat heading style if you prefer a more relaxed look or if space is limited (front to back) and there isn’t space for the depth of the folds on the wave curtains.  The Swiss pleat is also ideal if you are layering a voile curtain with a thicker fabric to sit in front of the voile.  The Swiss pleat is a simple, neat heading that sits nicely behind a wave curtain.

Please note due to the lightweight design of Colorama 1 Bioactive fabric, we don’t recommend the curtains are lined as the sheer fabric on occasion can cling to the lining and you can see the lining joins through the fabric.  Sheer (voile) fabrics look best unlined to allow light to penetrate into the room yet provide a level of shading / privacy.

Blind Applications

Colorama 2 Bioactive can be stiffened for use across a variety of blind applications.  The stiffened fabrics is however still very soft and makes it ideal for domestic blinds.  Silent Gliss laser cut the fabric for their blinds for a neat and precise finish.  The wide width nature of the fabric lends itself perfectly to blinds required across bi-fold or sliding doors.

Silent Gliss’s Colorama 2 Family

Silent Gliss’s Colorama 2 remains a best seller in the Silent Gliss fabric collection.  It has a uniform and stable weave which ensures high performance across a number of applications including curtains and blinds.  Silent Gliss have introduced a multicolour Colorama 2 fabric to complement Colorama 2 and extend the fabric choice.  The multicoloured yarn adds depth and dimension to the visual appearance of the fabric and is a popular choice for wave curtains.

Colorama 2 Eco is a sustainable sheer fabric woven from exclusive Colorama Trevira CS eco yarn.  The fabric is made from 100% recycled pre-consumer polyester.

Colorama 2 is a semi-transparent fabric.  Please see Silent Gliss Colorama 1 fabric collection for a transparent option.  Silent Gliss Colorama Dimout offers dimout properties so is ideal for bedrooms or where it is useful to darken a room.

    Please get in touch if we can offer any help or advice with your project.  Please email or call us on 01509 615775.


    If you are looking for a less uniform curtain heading you may wish to consider the Swiss Pleat curtain heading style.  This simple curtain heading delivers a relaxed look.  If space is limited (depth wise) it may be worth considering as it is a slimmer curtain heading to the Wave style.  Please note due to the construction of the Swiss Pleat curtains we cannot put a lining on the fabrics.

    Curtain Tracks

    The Swiss pleat curtains will come with Silent Gliss 2C gliders sewn into the curtain heading.  It is advisable to order a Silent Gliss track compatible with 2C gliders at the same time as ordering the curtains.  Please ensure the track length matches the track / pole width when ordering the curtains.

    The below tracks are compatible and will come without any gliders on when ordered with the Swiss pleat curtains.

    Please note: if you are recess fitting the tracks to fit wall to wall, or ceiling recess fitting, we would recommend waiting until you have received your curtains before installing your track.  You will need access to the end of the track to feed the gliders and curtains onto the track.

    Hand Draw track options:

    Silent Gliss 6840 (round profile)

    Silent Gliss 6010 (slim round profile)

    Silent Gliss 6870 (square profile)

    Silent Gliss 6380 (flat profile)

    Silent Gliss 6465 (ceiling fix only)

    Silent Gliss 6820 (funnel profile)

    Corded track options:

    Silent Gliss 3870 (square profile)

    Ceiling recess tracks:

    Silent Gliss 6243

    Silent Gliss 6870


    The Swiss Pleat works well layered behind a wave curtain.  If ceiling fitting 2 tracks please order 2 tracks and position one in front of the other.  For wall fixing you will require the universal smart fix brackets to accommodate 2 tracks.  Here is a link to the 6840 double track.

    Triple Track Option (ideal for layering 2 Swiss Pleat curtains.  Please note this track isn’t compatible with the wave gliders)

    Silent Gliss Triple Track 6293

    Whilst we will endeavour to fulfil our delivery promises once the goods leave our warehouse we do rely on 3rd parties to fulfil their obligations.  We therefore recommend that a fitter isn’t booked until the goods are safely in your hands and have been checked for damage and any missing items.  We cannot be held responsible for any fitter cancellations.

    We hope that you are delighted with your purchase.  We do recommend paint sample pots, wallpaper and fabric swatches are ordered prior to ordering the full sized items.  We can also send out ring samples, colour toggles or off cuts of curtain poles / tracks to ensure the colour is right before you commit to order.  Please email to request a sample.  Please note made to order / measure / cut to size products cannot be returned or exchanged unless faulty.  Please also note that we cannot accept returns on any paint orders as they are mixed to order.

    There is an £20 collection charge to return curtain pole or curtain track orders. We appreciate this is a lot of money but this is what our couriers charge us. Curtain poles and tracks are classified as ‘oversized’ items and so they incur a premium for handling long parcels.

Please ensure the returns reference, which will have been emailed to you, is clearly marked on the outside of the parcel.  We recommend you use the outer packaging the goods were delivered in.

    If on receipt of the goods we inspect them and conclude that they are not in the same condition they were sent out in we will not be able to provide a refund. We will notify you if this is the case.
