You might think curtains that open and close themselves are for the house of the future, but there’s no reason you can’t have electric curtain tracks in your home today. Motorised designs like the Silent Gliss 5100 are great for adding a little more comfort, style, security and practicality to your life.
The Automated House
Home automation is the latest interior design trend, and all our electric curtains fit into a high tech house perfectly. They can be activated by remote control or timer – perfect if you’ve got a home cinema projector and want to block out bright light, or you want the curtains shut when it gets dark to keep the house warm in winter.
The tracks are also great for offices, conference centres and meeting rooms to help control light levels.
Great for the Elderly
Electric curtain rails are perfect for older people who may have mobility problems. Stretching up to pull the curtains closed becomes a thing of the past as you can just press a button or set them to work on their own. Motorised designs also deter burglars as the curtains can be set to open and close even if you’re not in the house.
Made to Measure
All our electric curtain tracks are made to measure in our factory and can be bent by our trained engineers using the latest computer technology, so you can be sure they’ll fit. The 5100 Autoglide is an entry level system that can take up to 25kg of curtain weight and can be used for bay windows with up to two bends.
We also manufacture more advanced designs (5600) that can be wired into home entertainment and lighting systems. These heavier duty electric tracks are ideal for curtains up to 40kg in weight and are suitable for multiple bend bay windows.
