Interesting stuff about these corded bay window curtain tracks

Let me show you exactly what makes these made to measure corded curtain tracks so much better than store bought track. Also, many other custom made corded curtain tracks.  I'm certain these will cost more than you had planned on spending.  However, that extra now will give you far superior service for vastly longer than the alternatives.  

Another benefit is that your curtains will stay looking good for far longer. No more yanking on the cords because the curtains are stuck. No more dragging the curtains trying to release a stuck overlap arm.

The curtain overlap arm on these corded tracks

Bay Window Curtain Rails with overlapping curtainsBay Window Curtain Rails with Overlapping Curtains

As you can see here the curtain overlap arm is heavy duty and will carry heavy domestic weight curtains with ease.  This is one of the weak points with every diy store bought corded curtain track.

Even some custom made bay window curtain tracks suffer with weak overlap arms.  Over a period of time the arm starts to droop down under the weight of the curtain. Then finally one day it just collapses.

You won't have to worry about this happening to you if you order one of our corded curtain tracks for bay windows. The overlap arm is not fitted when your corded track arrives. This prevents damage in transit.

However, it's really simple to fit and only requires one supplied screw. you can see how simple it is by watching the video just below.

"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!  Paul, Maidstone"

The cords on our curtain tracks

Cord operated bay window curtain tracksCorded bay window curtain tracks

Another great things is the thickness and durablility of the cord use to control the curtains. As you can see here the cord is 3 times as thick as store bought corded bay window curtain tracks.

This means you can get a far better grip of the cord when pulling down to open and close your curtains. You can also benefit of having a cord control on both sides of the track. This means with larger heavier curtains. You are only moving one curtain and not a pair.

The other great benefit when doing this is that it puts less strain on the last wall or ceiling bracket. As you only have the weight of one curtain to move.

Child Safety Regulations!

All made to measure corded bay window curtain tracks now have to meet child safety laws. That means that the cord loop has to finish no lower than 150cm from the floor when the track is fitted over your window. You don't have to worry about the cord loop being the right length. We make sure every track we supply is correct before it leaves us. 

Occasionally, I get customers asking me to make the cord loops longer. So they can reach them lower down. This is sometimes because they can't reach up because of mobility issues. Or sometimes it's because there is something in front of the window. Meaning they have to reach over more than usual.  The answer to this request is always the same "NO".

We won't break the law and more importantly put a child at risk of strangualtion.  If accessing the cords presents a real challenge. Then I do have a solution to this problem. 

Electric powered curtain tracks will cure any of these problems.  I know they are not a cheap option but they are not as expensive as they used to be. So if you have a problem window then this might be a possible solution. 

Cord channels and why do they matter?

Functional Bay Window Curtain TrackFunctional Bay Window Curtain Track

Another great thing thing that beats store bought corded tracks is the "cord channels"

In the image here you can see the cords sitting in thier own round channels within the track. Separate from the channel where the gliders slide or roll.

This is not the same as cheaper corded tracks where the cords and the gliders travel across the track in the same channel. Needless to say this causes problems over time. Either the cords get tangled up with the gliders. 

Or especially true for bay windows the cords fall out of the channel. Then start to hang down below the track.

Another benefit of these tracks having separate cord channels. Is the abitlity to reverse bend the tracks. So what does that really mean. It means you can not only have bends in your track within the bay. You also have bends out of the bay into the room on each side. This means you can stack the curtains off the windows within the bay.

You can't have reverse bends out of the bay with store bought corded bay window curtain tracks. Having no separate cord channels means the cords will simply drop out of the track on the reverse bends.

Also, just look at the thickness of the metal in this track.  Even with metal store bought tracks you won't get the same thickness and strength from your curtain track.

Curtain track bracket options

10cm wall fix bracket
7.5cm wall fix bracket

The 3 wall fix curtain bracket option below will cover most situations. The 7.5cm wall fix curtain track bracket is the most popular option. This will give your curtains a little clearance if hanging in front of small window sill.

The 7.5cm and 10cm wall fix brackets come with a back cover that covers the screw heads after fitting the brackets. This give a nice neat finish. The 4.5cm bracket don't have a back cover. however they do come with a screw head cover as the image below show.

screw cover closed

Ceiling fix brackets

If you have chosen to have your track fixed to the ceiling within the bay. Also, possibly on the track returns out of the bay on each side. Then you will have a neat cover that clicks in place after fitting your track. You can see how this works by checking out the short video below.

"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,

Corded Curtain Tracks for Bay Window Ceiling Fixed

Sleek Bay Window Curtain SolutionsSleek Bay Window Curtain Solutions

See how discreet this white metal ceiling fixed corded bay window 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.

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 (10 year guarantee*) 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. This is often not the case with store bought tracks.

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 plain ugly when fitted to a celing.

In the image here 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. Even when you do see them they look really neat with the bracket cover hiding the bracket and screw.

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 than on straight windows.

"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"

Problems with old plastic curtain tracks

I'm sure you have had an old plastic corded curtain track fitted. Then one day you pull the cords to close the  curtains and a bracket breaks away. Then soon after another and another bracket breaks. Or the cord snaps!

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

***We supply all our tracks with quality 50mm screws and wall plugs***,  The same ones I use myself. 

Super smooth operation

The glider channel on these tracks are sprayed with a silicone spray for smooth operation from day one.  So no more struggling to move your curtains around your bay track. These tracks can be made to fit almost any angled or curved bay shape.  3 sided, 5 sided, 6 sided, and more sided... So you get the idea.

On larger bays over 350cm we recommend you have your bay track corded to both sides. This will mean less weight needs to be moved with each cord control. This is also our recommendation for all bay tracks with reverse bends out of the bay.
