SLIDING WINDOW TREATMENTS
Design Solution for Sliding Doors, Room Dividers & Large Windows
The Panel Track system consists of narrow panels that stack to one side (or both) and then close for privacy. The panels run on an aluminum track with bottom hem weight bars. The fabric in the panels can be roller shade material, grasscloth or woven wood material.
Panel Tracks constructed of woven wood materials usually have an edge binding to keep from fraying. Tracks are 2-5 channels that can hold 2-6 panels depending on configuration. Can fit openings up to 218" wide and 144" tall.
Residential fabric panel systems have been used for decades and were very popular in the sixties when Kirsch Drapery Hardware offered the first panel track system.
Panel Track systems are ideal for patio or closet doors, used as a room divider, or simply to control the environment on any elevation of a home.
Suitable in any setting where you would use draperies, the number of product options for this style of treatment far exceed ones imagination.
Larger fabric patterns can be fully displayed showing the print as it was intended. Most fabrics are simply hemmed at the side, but by adding a binding or trim, lace or woven wood materials can also be used.
Screen fabrics are also ideal for this treatment as they are laser cut to avoid fraying along the edges. In addition, the panels are easy to maintain and remove for cleaning or to change décor at a moments notice.
As the operating hardware requires that panels stack behind one another, space must be available somewhere along the travel to accommodate these panels. If not, provisions can be made inside a wall to allow panels to disappear when not in use.
Stacking configurations can be: center split, one way draw, or center stack. Panel widths are limited only by the fabric used and stacking space available.
The track systems for this product provide an endless number of options for any situation. Baton-draw systems for basic requirements, cord drawn for wider applications, and even combination baton / hand drawn tracks for more sophisticated systems.
Motorized panel track systems are also available for commercial and higher end properties and heavier treatments where operating cords are not suitable.
Each track comes with hook style Velcro rails, with the width depending on the number of panels for easy removal for cleaning.
