Custom Made Bay Window Curtain Tracks

What makes these tracks so special ?

These metal bay window curtain tracks can be made in ONE complete length. So No centre join to snag your curtains. Unlike DIY store bought curtain tracks.  Which come in two halves with a joiner to make them easier to get in your car.  

That is unless you want your new bay tracks to deliberately overlap in the centre. So you have a perfect light block with one curtain hanging in front of the other curtain when closed.  A great solution with blackout curtains. Especially in bedrooms, yours and childrens.

"Hi Lee, I wanted to say how pleased I was with the track. It wouldn't have been any more perfect if you had come to my house. So thank you for the work, it was excellent.

Regards, Steve, Rochester, Kent"

Another real benefit of having your new bay window curtain track made to fit perfectly. Is not having to cut the track down to size. Also not bending it in the wrong place. Then trying to re-bend it and making things even worse. 

Not sure if you can fit one of my bay tracks for yourself. Then take a look at what Paul had to say about fitting the bay track I made for him here.

They can also be made to fit very wide bay windows. Right up to 6 metres in one piece. As you can see here, they look really neat and discreet. If you are ready you can jump straight down to the costing calculator right here. However you may find the following information useful.

You don't have to worry about getting perfect bends in all the right places either. As these tracks arrive made to shape and ready to fit straight away.

I even supply the same screws and plugs that I use to fit these curtain tracks every week. These work for most situations when fitting to walls or ceilings.

"Hi Lee, My curtain maker was very impressed with my new bay window curtain track. She said she will recommend it to her other customers.

All the best, Sue, Lincoln, Lincolnshire

See how discreet this white metal ceiling fixed bay curtain track is. After a while you almost forget its there. This gives the bay window a simple uncluttered look. Allowing the curtains to be the main focal point.

Curtain track for bay windows with heavy curtains

The way these tracks are constructed and the thickness of the metal gives them greater strength. Even compared to other metal tracks. Also the density of the metal used  compared to DIY bendable tracks makes them superior. Then the curtain brackets and the gliders are also super strong and will give many years of trouble free use. This is because they are made from nylon and not plastic which is harder wearing  and does not go brittle in the same way as plastic.

You may have seen similar looking tracks however ours are made with a thickness of 1.5mm, most others are made using only a 1mm thickness. I know that 0.5mm extra does not sound like a lot more. But believe me it makes a lot of difference to the weight this track can carry.

Hi Lee, I'd also be happy for you to give my email address to prospective customers who want to contact existing customers.  Yours is such an unusual business, that I imagine a lot of prospective customers probably hesitate because they can't quite believe that buying a fitted curtain track online really works.  I can reassure them that it does!

Have a question about your bay window ?

This is where you can ask me any questions about your bay window. Not sure how to get the best fit. Should you have your curtains return out of the bay. Thinking of fixing to the ceiling but not sure how to go about it.

Any questions are welcome and there is no such thing as a stupid question. After all it's not something most people have to do very often if at all.

All I ask is that you give as much detail as possible. Also a photo really helps with understanding what needs to be done. You can upload up to 4 photos. The photo file size needs to be no more than 1Mb. Don't worry too much about this as you will be redirected to a webpage that allows you to shrink the file size if necessary.

Finally in the spirit of keeping things friendly. It would be nice if you give your first name and rough location. It's always good to know what part of the country people are from.

Now all you need to do is fill in the form just below. This will create a new page on this site that shows your question and my answer. This not only helps you, but also many more people looking for answers to the same question.

All the best

Lee

Curtain tracks for bay windows ceiling mounted

 Also being made of metal it wins over plastic every day of the week. Firstly it will carry more weight with ease. It will also last and work well many times longer than plastic bay tracks. Also they just look so much better! 

If you choose the ceiling mounted bay window curtain track. Then the brackets make the track sit flush to the ceiling. Unlike other  DIY bendable curtain tracks that are supposedly  ceiling mounted.  They use what are called "universal brackets". These brackets allow you to either fix to a wall or to a ceiling. The downside is that they just look ugly. In the image below you can see the flush fit bay window curtain track we supply using the purpose designed ceiling mount brackets. In most situations you can hardly see them.

The track above has a small gap between the ceiling and the top of the track. In my opinion they just don't look as good. This is common on most DIY store bought curtain tracks.  As you can see the  brackets also look ugly  as they have to serve as wall fix as well as ceiling fix. 

Another problem with DIY tracks are that they NEVER seem to come with enough gliders to hold your curtains up. Also you will find they NEVER have enough brackets. Especially when fitting them in bay windows. Funny how that works out :-)

You will need more brackets when fitting in bays. The more bends there are, the more brackets you need. It's all about fitting a bracket just on each side of every bend. As well as having brackets evenly spaced along your track. 

But hey no problem as they are more than happy for you to make another trip to the store to buy extra packs of gliders and brackets :-( 

Also good luck with getting perfect looking bends with these and other store bought bay tracks. That goes for plastic plastic curtain tracks as well as metal tracks. 

Hi Lee, I ordered a ceiling attached bay window curtain track from you last year, to hold heavy interlined curtains and it was easy to put up and works beautifully.  Very pleased with it and will certainly recommend you to people.

 Thank you, Heather, Sandbach, Cheshire

I'm sure you have had an old plastic curtain track fitted. Then one day you go to close the  curtains and a bracket breaks away. Then soon after another and another bracket breaks.

Soon the track becomes almost unusable. The same with the plastic gliders that end up going brittle and breaking after a few years.
