Types of Metal Curtain Tracks

Here at Direct Fabrics we try and make buying curtain tracks simple and affordable.

Our hotel contracts require a product to work perfectly everytime and have simple easy low maintenace.

Our range is made up of three types of curtain tracks;

Cord Operated - These curtain tracks are operated using a cord closing mechanism for a simple solution

Electricly operated - These are done with a push of a button.


Grading of Metal Curtain Tracks and Purposes - Light (voile) Medium (standard) Heavy (surrounds) Stage (front of house)

Our range of contract curtain tracks are of a much higher grade of aluminium to something that would be used in a domestic environment. The main reason for this is that in a commercial space a client just cannot afford for something to go wrong. Our range is heavy duty aluminium and benefits from toughened gliders for simple movement, the brackets are tough aluminium for extra strength

The main method of deciding on a track is the weight tolerance that the curtain tracks can tolerate. By using a simple weight chart a client can decide. We always recommend our heavy weight tracks as then you know it can tolerate more than enough unless your curtains are ridiculously heavy.

Weight Guide for Curtain Tracks

Voile - Light weight drapes.

Medium - Lightish weight fine for nomal windows.

Heavy - Our most common weight category for tracking.

Stage - For front of house stage drapes.


Heavy Duty Curtain Tracks

Direct Fabrics run a full range of contract heavy duty curtain tracks. These are speciifcally designed from strong aluminium and can be fitted easily in a variety of enviroments. The heavy duty tracks can be made with corded or hand operated options. Speak with the team to find the best option contract option for your project.

Use of Heavy Duty Curtain Tracks


Made to Measure Metal Curtain Tracks

95% of our curtain tracks are made to measure so you can get exactly the size that you want either in a hand drawn or a cord drawn. We would recommend going past your window by 15 to 30cm to get the best dressing finish for your windows. 

As the tracks are made to measure all you need to do is open the packaging and install the brackets. the key to a curtain track operating perfectly is a good fixing for the brackets. As the track is only as strong as the bracket when secured to the wall. So always fit with the appropriate wall plug and fixing.
