Tracks & Rods

Curtain tracks and rods can be a beautiful statement that adds the finishing touch to the heading of your curtains or they can be as unobtrusive as possible by blending in with your colours.

I've chosen to offer the selection below because I've used it for the past 16 years and can thoroughly recommend it. All the options in this range run beautifully smoothly when you open and close your curtains and the components are durable and well-made.

Work through the steps below to choose from this range of high quality NZ made products in a selection of colours and styles.

Step 5. Choose the colour you'd like from the options below:

Note: unless requested otherwise, all parts of your set will be the same colour - rod/track, finials and brackets.

White

Cirrus

Ivory

Calico

Brumby

Pepper

Rust

Stone

Satin Chrome

Pewter

Black

Custom Painted (see note below)

Custom painted options are available as hand-painted washed or rubbed finishes.. A 25% surcharge applies. View the options here.

Step 6. Download this guide then measure for your tracks/rods. 

Specify the width required excluding any finials for rods (but make sure you allow room for these - the length of each finial is given in Step 2 above).

Step 7. Does your track/rod need to be bent around one or more angles or corners - eg a bay window?

If yes, simply specify the bend number as per page 3 of the measuring guide. This is enough information to provide you with a quote. If you accept the quote a diagram including the degree of each angle will be required (you will be supplied with more information at the time).

If you already have a diagram of the bend/s you can upload it when you request a quote below.


Step 8. Do you want your track or rod hand or cord drawn? For double sets please specify whether you want the front, rear or both cord-drawn (and which side you want the pull cord).

Please note, cord drawn tracks are not recommended for heavy curtains or bent tracks & rods. Some rods can't be cord-drawn - refer to options in Step 1 above. As an alternative to cords, consider using curtain wands - see note at end of this page.

Step 9. Are your tracks/rods to be fitted on the wall or ceiling? 

Single tracks and rods will be supplied with 6cm brackets as standard if fitted to the wall. However, several other projections are available so please make a note at the bottom of the quote request form if you have specific requirements. Double brackets have a projection from the wall of 130-160mm + the diameter of the front rod/track.

All track and rod sets are delivered with the correct number of brackets and screws for installation. 

Step 10. Save your completed Quote Form and attach it or use it as a reference when you request a quote below.

Curtain Wands - an alternative to cord-drawn rods and tracks

For use on hand drawn tracks and rods where you don’t want to handle the curtains to open and close them. 

Designed to help keep the leading edge of curtains clean, they simply clip onto the first or second glide of the curtain track or rod and hang neatly behind the curtain.

Available in all the above standard colours as either a 75cm or a 150cm option. Available as a clear acrylic option in a 75cm length only.
