Standard duty track as well as Refre track are made of plastic with embedded metal plate. It will meet most residential applications such as light sheer, shower curtain or use with normal height draperies. Selfie track, made of aluminum, can sustain more weight than plastic track. Super Selfie track, made also of aluminum, is larger in size than Selfie, can handle greater weight. It is suitable for thicker, heavier commercial and industrial use curtains. It needs less mounting hardware than our other tracks.
Without a doubt, our flexible track can also be used for straight run but it will be different from straight track since it has been coiled up. In straight run application, we recommend installing mounting hardware at 9″ interval. Try to work out all mounting hardware with even even interval mounting hardware which will look better. All mounting hardware need to be installed alone center of the intended line where straight or curved, slightest off set will result in having a wavy track.

One every 24” for Selfie track and one for every 36” for Super Selfie track in the field., 4” from the edges. If the track is sharply curved, add additional mounting hardware at point of turns.
Our Refre track has metal plate embedded, it is extremely flexible and can bend 90 degrees or more without any splice so that the sliders can move freely without interruption. Selfie and Super Selfie aluminum tracks can also be hand bended. We have bending tools available for those of multiple units with uniform curvatures.

We normally use UPS or USPS ground service. UPS will not deliver any box that is longer than 9’ without incurring additional charge which in most case is more than the material cost. That is one of the reasons we offer maximum 112” long track to make the shipping easier and cheaper. Tight fit connectors can give you indefinite length of track if so intended.
Our track works the best on horizontal curve application such as bay window but it still can apply to arch window by side mounting the track with our wall mount cartridge. However the curtain can only be stationary in this case, unable to open or close like the conventional way.
There are several solutions to hide track and mounting hardware if you are planning on doing so.
Method 1: Use conventional drapery “S” pin with pleated curtain. One end of the pin goes into the ring of the roller, the other end of the “S” is to pin through the pleat. Position this pin about 1-3/4″ below the curtain top so that curtain barely touches the ceiling, the track is therefore covered by the curtain.
Method 2: Use hem and trim tape to create the facing then use the above mentioned drapery pin. This will give you a seamless drapery.
Method 3: Use our flexible hook. Use back side of curtain fabric to wrap around the paper thin portion of the flexible hook, then either stable or sew the piece in position about 1/2″ to 1″ below top of curtain. The hook can let your curtain height be adjusted to 1-1/2″. Click “flexible hook” on accessory page for detail.
Method 4: Use our optional roller which has button on the side, named BR-2. Click “assembly photo” for different applications.
You will need to make button holes on your curtain facing in order to work with it. This is a more secure way and you can use these buttons to implement your design idea in numerous ways to compliment the curtain. Click on “assembly photo” page to see design ideas. This method is best suitable for light weight fabric.
When the fabric’s weight gets heavy, such as having velvet or curtain with blackout, we recommend to hang the curtain directly under the ring and to have a separate narrow piece of fabric as valance to hang it from the buttons, otherwise the drapery won’t slide as smooth because curtain’s weight is shifted from center to the side thus creating some friction to the rollers.
Button holes are suggested to be at 1- 1/2″ from the top to center of hole, 3″-4″ apart horizontally depending on how many rollers you want per foot of track. It you don’t want to show the button, simply make the hole on the back side of facing.
