Slimline bay window curtain tracks for a perfect fit

Some great reasons why you should you buy your hand draw custom made slimline bay window curtain tracks from us ?

  • We actually make them unlike most of our retailer competition. They buy them from trade curtain track makers and put their mark up on them. Then sell them as their own product.
  • We know what we are doing and have more than 30 years experience doing this. 
  • We have developed a super simple ordering process. This makes it simple for you to order in confidence that your new bay track will fit perfectly.
  • Our 10 Year NO quibble Guarantee, on the incredibly rare occasion something does go wrong. We simply remake at no cost to you.
  • They arrive made to the exact size and shape you need to fit your bay window perfectly. The bends are a perfect radius and the track is completely assembled out of the box. So this makes it super simple to fit.
  • Finally, because we make the tracks ourselves and we run a really tight ship. We can supply you at prices well below our competitors 😊.

Our custom made slimline bay window curtain tracks are only 15mm deep (17mm deep with ceiling brackets) and will carry most domestic weight blackout lined curtains with ease.

So why would you choose this slim profile rather than our regular profile hand draw bay track?

The obvious reason is you see less of it being only 15mm deep on the front.  Another reason we recommend this is when customers have shutters fitted within the bay. Often the regular bay track is just slightly too deep at 23mm. If you have shutter doors then when they opened they may hit the back of the track.

Another issue is inward opening tilt and swing windows. Whoever thought they were a good idea?? Same problem again the window frames hitting the back of the tracks when fitted to the ceiling within the bay.

Other good reasons to buy this slimline track or our regular custom made bay tracks are.

  • No more, trying to bend a straight track to fit your bay shape. We take care of all the bending.
  • No more having to cut the track down to size.

You can choose to order your new slimline bay window curtain tracks with the overlapping tracks option (see images lower down). 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.

Or you can choose to have your bay track made in 2 halves with a heavy duty centre joining splice.  On top of this option you can also add an independant overlap arm (see images lower down).

These slimline bay window curtain tracks are made exactly to your bay shape (angled or curved) ready to fit straight away. Customers tell me how easy they are to fit. Even with no previous experience. Watch the video lower down

I am so confident of the quality of my bay tracks that I offer an industry beating ****10 YEAR GUARANTEE **** (but they will last a lot longer :-)

You have the option to buy your slimline bay window curtain tracks with, or without an overlap arm.

Choosing the overlap arm option will allow your curtains to overlap each other in the middle of your bay window when closed. This is especially good when hanging blackout lined curtains. As you can eliminate even more light from leaking in.

Fitting the slimline bay window curtain track

Another real benefit of having your new slimline bay window curtain tracks made to fit perfectly. Is not having to cut the track down to size.

The hardest part of fitting a bay window curtain track is the bending. Getting the bends in exactly the right place on the track and to the right radius. If you buy one already made to the perfect shape. Then the fitting is so much easier. This especially true for ceiling fixed tracks within the bay.

 "Hi lee just wanted to say I received the item quickly from the date of order and thanks for guiding me though the process ,brilliant packaging mate to , I got it fitted over the weekend me and the farther in law 10 minutes and done , looks brill lovely finish blends nicely into the ceiling ..waiting for curtains now thanks for the speedy process really happy with the fit finish and quality.   Damian, Kings Norton"

They can also be made to fit very wide bay windows. Right up to 5 metres. As you can see on this page, they look really neat and discreet at only 15mm deep (17mm deep when ceiling fixed).  

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. These work for almost all 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"

Slimline bay window curtain tracks and heavy curtains

End profile of the slimline bay window curtain track

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 metal curtain brackets are also super strong and will give many years of trouble free use. Also tough and robust gliders mean this track will last giving decades of trouble free use.

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!  Paul, Maidstone"

Curtain tracks for bay window ceiling fixed

ceiling mounted bay window curtains track

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.

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. 

There is a reason they cost less!

If you choose our ceiling mounted bay window curtain track. Then the brackets make the track sit flush to the ceiling. Unlike other  DIY bendable curtain tracks (See competitors bay track here) 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 plain ugly.

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. They have neat little covers that hide away the bracket and screw.

The track below has a small gap between the ceiling and the top of the track. In my opinion they just don't look good at all. This is common on most DIY store bought curtain tracks. 

Slimline curtain track brackets and gliders?

Another problem with DIY shop bought curtain tracks is 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 a straight window. The track needs more support on each side of each bend. Also, if fitting to the ceiling within the bay. Then I set the brackets closer together than when on a straight track. An average of 30cm spacing on bays and an average of 40cm spacing 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 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. This is the domino effect of the first failed bracket putting more weight on the next weak bracket. 

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