Frequently asked questions
What are curtain tracks?
Curtain tracks are a key component of installing your window coverings. Manufactured from metal or plastic, they are used to hang, open and close curtains with heading tape.
Curtain tracks can be mounted directly on the wall or ceiling, and are typically covered by a curtain heading. They are also ideal for areas with limited space between the ceiling and top of your window.
How do curtain tracks work?
Curtain tracks are mounted to the wall or ceiling, and hang the fabric using a series of gliders. These gliders are fundamentally connected to one another, with each glider drawing the one behind it to create curves along the length of the track. Curtains can be opened and closed using a wand, cord or motorised track system.
What type of curtain goes on a track?
Tracks are suitable for hanging almost any type of curtain, except for those with eyelets or tab tops.
If you are still unsure as to whether your curtains need to be hung from a track or rod, please do not hesitate to contact our friendly specialists today on (02) 4958 4336.
What is the best curtain track for heavy curtains?
In general, metal tracks are best for hanging heavier curtains, while plastic tracks are suited to supporting light to medium weight curtains.
However, it all depends on the exact curtains, heading and track in question. For tailored advice on the right system for your space, please call our experts today on (02) 4958 4336.
Do s-fold curtains need a special track?
Yes. An s-fold curtain works in tandem with its track, requiring different components to its pleated counterparts. Therefore, it’s not possible to attach these curtains to existing tracks originally designed for other styles – instead, you need a purpose-designed s-fold curtain track.
Can pencil pleat curtains go on a track?
Yes. Pencil pleat curtains can hang from a track or a rod. What’s most important is that your pencil pleat curtains are measured correctly to be approximately twice the length of the track or rod so that they cover the window or door completely without compromising their curves.
Can you attach a curtain track to the ceiling?
Yes. By attaching your curtain track to the ceiling, you can create a clean aesthetic and make your window or door seem larger.
Curtain tracks can be mounted directly onto the ceiling using specific hardware such as clamps, brackets, clips or retainers. Alternatively, recessed curtain tracks offer unrivalled minimalism, concealing the components within your ceiling.
Can I hang new curtains on an existing track?
In certain cases, it may be possible to hang new curtains on an old track. That said, we strongly suggest ordering a made-to-measure curtain track designed for your specific curtains to ensure they are the right match.
If you are set on keeping your existing track, please discuss your needs with our team and we’ll do our best to tailor your new curtains so they fit flawlessly.
What is a curtain heading?
A curtain heading is the top-most part of your curtain fabric that attaches to the track or rod. As well as determining the type of track or rod that can be used, the heading style you select can have a major impact on the overall look and feel of your curtains, so it’s important to get it right.

What sort of headings can you have for sheer curtains?
The best heading for sheer curtains is all down to personal preference. That said, many of our customers prefer to use pencil pleat headings for sheer curtains, as the transparent, lightweight fabric embraces a relaxed flow that doesn’t need a formal pinch pleat. Wave headings are also popular for their contemporary and sophisticated style.
