Silent Gliss System 6840 Uncorded Aluminium Curtain Track – compatible with wave curtains – round track profile
Silent Gliss 6840 curtain track is a neat, attractive curtain track suitable for medium weight curtains and compatible with the wave curtain heading available in 6 contemporary colours. An upgrade to roller gliders makes the track suitable for heavier curtains so please select ‘roller gliders’ if your curtains are on the heavy side. Purpose designed for ceiling fixing but face fix brackets are also available. This track has the same appearance from both sides so is suitable as a room divider. The profile is curved slightly so looks aesthetically appealing. If you would prefer a squarer profile please consider the Silent Gliss 6870 hand drawn curtain track. This track is supplied with the new 2C glider technology offering a quieter glide (14 2C gliders are supplied per metre of track). 10 roller gliders per metre are supplied as standard. If you are choosing wave gliders the track will come with the calculated number of wave gliders for your track length. The track comes complete with gliders, brackets, end stops and fixings. Any tracks ordered over 6m will be supplied in 2 equal halves (unless requested otherwise) with a connecting bridge.
This track is also suitable for the popular wave heading system. The wave gliders are evenly spaced either 80mm or 60mm apart and give a neat fold on your curtains for a stylish finish. Please note you do need to use specific wave heading tape so the wave gliders are not suitable for curtains with other heading types such as pinch pleat or pencil pleat. Please click here for more information on the Wave system.
This track is also suitable for bay or L shaped windows, however we do need to bend the tracks for you. Please download our measurement form here.
Please note these tracks are all made to measure and cannot be returned or exchanged unless faulty.

This curtain track will be supplied with the nylon style wall fix bracket (only available in white), or top fix clamp style brackets as standard when the track is ordered with standard or roller gliders.
If you are ordering the track with wave gliders the top fix clamp style bracket will be supplied for ceiling fixing. This gives a lovely flush fit to the ceiling. If wall fixing the Silent Gliss smart fix brackets will be supplied. The 80mm bracket will be supplied with 60mm wave gliders and the 100mm bracket will be supplied with 80mm wave gliders. This is to ensure the track sits far enough away from the wall for the wave to fold without touching the wall.
To calculate the number of brackets you will receive with your track as standard take your track length divide it by 67, round it up and add 1. For example on a 200cm track you will receive 4 brackets (200/67, rounded up + 1).
Please note the wall fix brackets for the wave heading are only available in white or silver. We will supply white brackets if white or matt white tracks are ordered, and silver brackets if silver or anodic grey tracks are ordered. We will be in touch to discuss the bracket colour if an antique bronze or charcoal track is ordered with wall fixing for a wave curtain.
This track is available to order with the new 2C standard gliders (that are even quieter than the old standard gliders), roller gliders or wave gliders. 14 2C (standard) gliders are supplier per metre and 10 roller gliders are supplier as standard per metre. The number of wave gliders required will be calculated on the track length ordered.
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.
Get the ‘Wave’ look!
The wave heading is a contemporary curtain heading style that is now widely seen in showhomes and is gaining in popularity. The wave system offers a more contemporary, neat and stylish curtain presentation to more traditional curtain headings such as pencil pleat or pinch pleat. The finished appearance is similar to that of eyelet curtains but the fabric hangs directly below the curtain track in a neat and uniform style.
Wave has some key advantages over more traditional curtain headings:
- Minimised curtain stack
- Simple curtain dressing
- Form throughout the curtain drop
- Minimalist appearance
- Suits traditional and modern interiors
- Compatible with pelmets
The ‘wave’ effect is suitable for voiles and curtains and is created through combining a specially designed heading tape and Wave glider-cord to get a soft and simple continuous wave effect. When opened the curtains stack back neatly and straight and when closed the fabric hangs in a smooth continuous wave effect. Please view our YouTube video that explains this in more detail.
To achieve the ‘wave’ look you will need to order a track that is compatible with wave gliders. We have classified our tracks as ‘suitable for wave curtains’ to help you shop.
You will then need to purchase ‘wave’ curtains. Shop our range of wave curtains here. Wave curtains are made using a specific wave heading tape to achieve the wave look. Readymade wave curtains are not available as a wave curtain needs to be specially made to fit your track length. The amount of fabric and gliders required are all calculated based on the track length so the make up of wave curtains is very mathematical! If you are making your own wave curtains for the first time and have any questions please give us a call on 01590 615775 and we will be happy to give you some advice. You will find all the wave curtain accessories here.
For more information on the wave heading system please read our blog post. Our Q&A is also a useful tool that answers the most common questions we are asked!
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).
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.
Measuring Curtain Track lengths for Wave Curtains
If you are opting for a wave curtain the stack back is a mathematical calculation. A curtain stacks back 18cm per metre of curtain track with an 80mm wave heading, and 23cm per metre of track with a 60mm wave heading.
Please see the example below:
On a 3m track for a pair of curtains with an 80mm wave the stack back will be 3m x 18cm = 54cm / 2 = 27cm each side.
For a single curtain the curtain will stack 54cm one side.
On a 3m track for a pair of curtains with a 60mm wave the stack back will be 3m x 23cm = 69cm / 2 = 34.5cm each side.
For a single curtain the curtain will stack 69cm one side.
Wave curtains are particularly popular over bi-fold or sliding doors or over large expanses of floor to ceiling glass. If there is wall space to the side of the glazing the track length can be worked out so the curtain neatly sits on the side wall(s) clearing the glazing to allow the light to flood into your room.
Please view our wave curtain information page for more information on the wave curtain heading style.
