A POPULAR TRACK
We offer many different curtain tracks, each with their own distinct strengths and uses. While we don’t have a “one size fits all” track in our arsenal, we do carry many tracks that have multiple uses and can be used in many environments. Among these is one of our bestsellers, the ball-bearing-carrier curtain track. This track is a strong, aluminum, architectural track available in white or silver that keeps a low profile once installed. It can be mounted on the ceiling or the wall, and parallel tracks can be installed in the ceiling, or on the wall via a double wall bracket. This track uses (surprise!) ball bearing carriers. These little gems are smooth, quiet, and durable, which is why they are a popular choice for home/bedroom curtains.
LIKE BEING ON VACATION
Chances are, even if you don’t have a ball-bearing-carrier curtain track in your home, you have encountered one before. They are an industry standard in hotel room window treatments. If you have ever wished you could recreate layered, room-darkening hotel curtains in your own bedroom, you would need to start with the ball-bearing-carrier curtain track. These tracks are often installed in parallel on the ceiling in front of hotel room windows so that both a sheer curtain and a thick drape can be hung. They are commonly installed with drapery hardware such as master carriers and wands that make it easy to close the curtains, allow the curtains to overlap when closed, and help keep the curtain panels clean since you don’t need to touch the fabric to close them. (Incidentally, hotels usually use black-out curtains like our Eclipse fabric curtains that block both light and absorb sound. If you tend to sleep better in a hotel room than in your own room, you might want to consider these for your boudoir.)
The parallel mounting capability on both wall and ceiling make this track a great fit for spaces with sliding glass doors or floor-to-ceiling windows, or anywhere you might want a sheer and a heavy drape. And, of course, a single, ceiling-mounted ball-bearing-carrier curtain track with a heavy drape can create a virtual wall, virtually anywhere.
