Silent Gliss Products: New Curtain Track Colours



Silent Gliss Curtain Tracks – New Colours Available

We are delighted to announce that Silent Gliss have updated their track colours on their most popular curtain tracks, increasing the variety of Silent Gliss products available.

The new colours complement current interior design colour trends and styles. The Silent Gliss hand drawn 1080 track, the hand drawn 6840 curtain track and the corded 3840 tracks are now all available in a new range of colours! The colours now available for selection are matt white, anodic grey, antique bronze, charcoal and silver. These Silent Gliss products are all still also available in the standard white that has a slight gloss finish to it.

The Matt White option is a contemporary take on the standard white. The anodic grey also has a matt finish and works well with neutral colour schemes. The charcoal is a great addition to the range and co-ordinates with dark aluminium windows or bi-fold doors. The antique bronze brings a level of warmth with slightly golden hues to the bronze finish, and the light silver works well with stainless steel or matt nickel door handles, lights or other accessories.

Silent Gliss curtain tracks are superb, offering exceptional quality at good value prices.

The History Behind Silent Gliss Curtain Tracks


Silent Gliss Curtain Tracks are world famous and well known for their quality and reliability. They were first invented in 1952 when a Swiss engineer combined nylon gliders with aluminium tracks, the result was the introduction of a brilliant silent curtain track. Silent Gliss has since gone on to make curtain tracks which can be bent and can be electrically operated by the push of a button.

The Silent Gliss Curtain Tracks Buyers Guide

All of the Silent Gliss curtain tracks can be cut to your exact measurements (to the mm), which is ideal if you are fitting wall to wall and also avoids you having to cut yourself. The Silent Gliss 6 meter profile is an ideal solution for extra wide windows and bi-fold doors. As the brackets do not interfere with the track profile at all it also means you can position one curtain on the track and draw it the whole way across to the other side, offering more flexibility in comparison to other curtain tracks on the market. Due to the long track profiles available as single pieces (and you can join 2 together with connecting bridges to double the maximum widths), they are a great solution for extra wide windows and bi-fold doors. Maximum width information is stated on the product specification tab on each product page.

Extendable smart fix brackets are also available enabling you to wall fix 2 tracks onto the same bracket. This is ideal for nets, voiles and curtains creating a layering effect. It’s also useful if you want to retain privacy in the day with a net or voile, but want some thicker or blackout curtains in the evening. If you are ceiling fixing your tracks simply order 2 tracks at the same length and you can just position one in front of the other. Shop Silent Gliss Double Tracks Now!

Silent Gliss Curtain Tracks for Bay or L Shaped Windows

All of the Silent Gliss curtain tracks can be bent for bay or L shaped windows, however a specialist bending tool is required so we do need to bend the tracks for you. Silent Gliss are brilliant for bay windows, as the brackets do not interfere with the track profile there is a smooth glide around the corners. Please download our form for Bay/L shaped windows here.

Silent Gliss 1080 Benefits – a superb track suitable for medium weight curtains

  • Easy installation with universal brackets for wall or ceiling fixing
  • Single tracks available up to 6m lengths – if you are ordering a long track please bear in mind the logistics of getting the track to the room it is going to be installed in. It’s tricky to get a 6m track around a corner!! We can split longer lengths if required for practical reasons.
  • Suitable for up to 1200cm widths! 2 tracks can be joined together with a connecting bridge
  • Tracks come complete with siliconised gliders, brackets & fixings
  • Excellent for bay windows (but we do need to bend the tracks for you!)

 

 

 

Silent Gliss 6840 – hand drawn curtain track compatible with wave gliders

The other Silent Gliss products option for light to medium weight curtains is the Silent Gliss 6840 curtain track. The 6840 is available corded or uncorded and is available in matt white, anodic grey, antique bronze, charcoal and silver. It is still also available in the standard white that has a slight gloss finish to it. The profile has been designed to be ceiling fixed using the ceiling fix clamp style of bracket. This provides a very flush fit to the ceiling. Wall fix brackets are also available. The slightly curved track profile (shown below) offers a contemporary, sophisticated look and looks really neat and stylish. The profile looks the same from both sides so it can be used as a room divider.

 

You can upgrade to roller glider on this track. This is recommended if your curtains are on the heavy side of medium to increase the glide operation.

This track is also compatible with the Silent Gliss wave gliders. Wave gliders give a neat fold to your curtains for a really polished look. They are particularly popular for use at bi-fold doors or extra wide windows. Please note you do need to use specific wave heading tape on your curtains so you can’t install shop bought curtains on a curtain track with wave gliders. For more information please click here to be taken to the article about wave heading.

Silent Gliss Products & Silent Gliss Curtain Tracks Variety

 

Silent Gliss 3840 Benefits

The Silent Gliss 3840 offers the same benefits as the non corded track (please see information above). The track can be corded both sides which is recommended on straight tracks over 400cm or on bent tracks over 300cm. You may also wish to consider this on shorter lengths if your curtains are on the heavy side, or if you would like to operate your curtains independently to each other, to block out the sun on one side of your room for example, or if you have one curtain that is wider than the other. This does mean the track will come in 2 pieces with an intermediate pulley.

  • An aesthetically designed track suitable for medium weight curtains – it’s also really popular for voiles too
  • Suitable for use with Wave gliders
  • Excellent for bi-fold door or extra wide windows
  • Easy installation
  • Single tracks available up to 6m lengths
  • Suitable for up to 1200cm widths! 2 tracks can be joined together with a connecting bridge
  • Tracks come complete with gliders, brackets & fixings
  • Excellent for bay windows (but we do need to bend the tracks for you!)
  • Available in 6 colours to suit your interior design style
