Silent Gliss System 1020 Uncorded Aluminium Curtain Track – funnel shaped profile

The Silent Gliss 1020 is a funnel shaped, contemporary styled white curtain track suitable for light to medium weight curtains.  This track is only suitable for ceiling fixing.  The track has the same appearance from both sides so is suitable as a room divider.  Silent Gliss sell a fitting tool (6827) to assist with the installation and removal of the track from the ceiling.  The track can however be installed without it.  Please see accessories below.

This track is supplied with 16 standard gliders (3533) per metre.

If you are after a layered look and are considering a voile and a main curtain, the wider Silent Gliss 6820 curtain track,  works well with this track as a track for the main curtains.  The 6820 track is suitable for medium weight curtains and is also compatible with the wave heading system.  Please view the bracket tab for track spacing advice.

If you aren’t familiar with the wave curtain heading style please refer to our blog post.

This track is suitable for bay or L shaped windows, however we do need to bend the tracks for you. Please download our bay or L shaped window measurement form here.

Please note these tracks are all made to measure and cannot be returned or exchanged unless faulty.

This curtain track is supplied with the Silent Gliss top fix clip brackets. The tracks clip into the brackets so the brackets are concealed.  Please click on the image to view Silent Gliss’s recommendation on how far to fix the track away from the wall.  The image also shows their recommendation for a double track system.

To work out the number of brackets you will receive with your track divide the track length in cm by 100, then multiply this by 2, add 1 and round up to the nearest whole number.

For example on a 300cm track you will receive:

300/100 = 3 x 2 = 6 + 1 = 7 brackets.


16 gliders per metre are supplied with this curtain track as standard.  You can add extra gliders to your track if required.
Glider Code: 3533

How to measure and order:

Please download our bay or L shaped window measurement form here.

We recommend you measure along your walls/windows. Add the measurements together along all the sides of your bay to get a total track length. We will then project the track accordingly depending on the brackets ordered with the track.

If you know the angles, we don’t require the cross diagonal measurements (these are shown on the form above), however we recommend you supply the measurements across the front of the bay as this is a cross check to see if the angles are correct. If you don’t know the angles, please supply the cross diagonal measurements required (shown on the form) and our software will work out the angles for you.

Place your order through the website. The order process takes you step by step through your purchase.

Once we receive your order, we will run the diagram through our software. If any of the measurements are outside of our tolerance we will get in touch to ask you to remeasure.

Measuring Guide for a Curtain Track:

Decide where the track is to be positioned. This is usually above the window with the track extending either side beyond the window.

Step 1: Measure the width of your window.

Step 2: The chart below provides guidance for making an allowance either side of your window for your curtain stack (shown as ‘B’ on the diagram above). This is particularly important if you want the curtains to clear the glazing when open. Please note the curtain heading, fabric thickness and lining specification will affect the width of the stack back. How much you would like the curtains to clear the window is down to personal preference. The chart below however is a good guide.

Step 3: Add the width of your window onto the ‘B’ measurement (x 2 for a pair of curtains) to give you the finished track length (A).

Recess Fitting

If you are fitting your track wall to wall or within a recess we recommend you take the wall to wall measurement and deduct 1cm for hand drawn and corded tracks to ensure the track can be fitted easily within the recess. For motorised tracks we recommend you deduct 2cm from your wall to wall measurement to ensure enough space to fit the curtain around the motor.

Please read our measuring guide blog post for further information.

For precision measuring we recommend the GATORTAPE Window Furnishing Precision Tape Measure.
