    Electric-Curtain-Tracks

    Whether it be luxury homes, quality hotels or dynamic conference venues, motorised curtains are becoming a standard requisite in this type of high-end project. Our exquisitely designed remote control tracks are extremely robust, yet discrete and can even be concealed within a ceiling recess.  Nothing creates greater visual impact than beautifully crafted curtains moving virtually silently, across a span of up to 10 metres, at the touch of a single button! The sophistication of Controliss electric curtain tracks is reflected in the simple form and sleek lines of the powerful motor and rail.  The motor is covered neatly, housing an integrated power supply; having the capability to offer a large range of control options, with adjustable limits to allow the curtains to fall naturally. Just like our electric blinds ranges, the curtain tracks are operable either individually or as groups of tracks, just by varying the choice of remote control handset. Installation is a simple operation with a basic electrical connection; ensuring the experience of an electric curtain track and all the associated benefits, could not be easier. These electric curtain tracks are so versatile, they incorporate Touch Motion functionality, to open and close the curtain by lightly pulling on the fabric, without the use of a remote control.  The motor drive shaft disengages automatically to permit use of the Touch Motion function.  The curtain tracks can also be personalised; to stop at preferred levels of opening, even the speed of operation is adjustable, with all tracks having soft start and stop as a standard feature. We can not only guarantee our tacks with a warranty for 5 years, but more importantly, we guarantee that any visitors will not fail to be impressed by the power of motion; so for any projects scheduled for 2013, where that ever important 'wow' factor is vital, then the simple solution is a Controliss electric curtain track!

    Posted on 4th December 2011 by Jules.

    Controliss Blinds showcase Lutron's award winning and imaginative Kirbé® Vertical Drapery System that represents an exciting and unique industry first. This entirely new design of Lutron blinds smoothly raises and lowers the curtain fabric up and completely out of the way at the touch of a button. The Kirbé vertical curtain system is a captivating fusion of vertical motion with Lutron's beautifully engineered quiet drive motorisation technology and traditional soft curtain fabrics. Lutron Kirbé eliminates “stack back” – the mass of fabric remaining when a traditional curtains are opened. Curtain fabric stack back can equate to one-third the total width of traditional curtains which in many scenarios can block a large portion of the overall window aperture. Utilising the unique Kirbé system increases the number of applications where you can use curtain fabrics, including restrictive spaces, French, Bi-fold or sliding doors and floor-to-ceiling windows by recessing the system into a recessed pocket for totally unobstructed access and views.

  • Do-It-Yourself Window Design for Vertical Blinds

    Posted on 3rd August 2010 by jenny.

    Vertical Window Design

    Are you feeling bored with your vertical blinds? Here is a design project you can do yourself on a weekend to cover the hardware of your vertical blinds with traditional curtains with a contemporary style. What You Need: Fabric of Any Material and Pattern Metal Ring Clips Two Tassels Trimming with Tassels Scissors Vertical Blinds Directions: 1. Cut half a width of fabric for each side panel. Using blind stitching, add side seams and hems. 2. For the valance, sew together two widths of fabric in the center and hem the panel. Prepare a scallop-shaped pattern on paper and use this to cut scallops along the top edge. Use a basting stitch into the panel to keep the valance from falling apart. Add the trimming to decorate the scallops. Use the same process for the header of the side panels. 3. Clip the metal rings to the points in the scallop and slide them over a curtain rod over the vertical blinds. Place the valance on each of the side panel to make the three pieces look like a seamless piece. Tie the side panels back with a tassel to keep it from hindering the operation of the vertical blinds. These curtains and valances will frame your vertical blinds and will up the “wow” factor of your motorised vertical blinds. Check out our line of vertical blinds; these all come in several shades and colours that can complement any room in any style.
