Measurement Guide

How to measure for straight tracks

Example Image

To calculate the overall length of track or pole required:

i)  measure the inside recess width in centimetres (A) and

ii) add a minimum of 15cm (B) to either side i.e. add at least an additional 30cm (15cm *2) to the inside recess measurement.  

The total track length required is A + B + B. 

How to measure for tracks with finials

Please be aware that the above measurement is for the track length only, should you wish to have finials at either end  of your pole you will need to allow enough space to add on the length of each finial  (note two finials in total)  to the overall length of the pole.

WHEN ORDERING PLEASE PROVIDE YOUR EXACT POLE LENGTH EXCLUDING FINIALS BUT REMEMBER TO ENSURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH SPACE FOR THE FINIALS WHEN INSTALLING THE POLE

To minimise mistakes when measuring we would strongly advise that measurements be taken in centimetres using a metal tape measure. 

How to measure for bent tracks to fit bay or curved windows

With the exception of the 50mm system 6150M (electric operation) all tracks can be bent to varying degrees depending on the recommended minimum bend radius*.

Should your chosen track require bending to fit a curved or bay window please indicate on order.  Once we have received  of your order we will make contact to assist with calculating accurate angles and measurements to ensure your bent track will fit perfectly.  

For the further information on how to measure for bent tracks please use the link below to view  the Silent Gliss angle measure guide  /user/Silent_Gliss_Angle-measure.pdf  

The following information provides minimum bending radius for our products:

    Electric Tracks 

  • Autoglide system 5100, 5100R, 5100T, 5100TC - 300mm minimum bend radius (maximum 2 bends per system)
  • System 5600 and 5600R - 250mm minimum bend radius  

    Metropole Range  

  •  23mm system 1003M (hand operated) - 150mm minimum bend radius
  •  36mm system 6100M (hand operated) - 200mm minimum bend radius
  •  30mm system 6120M (cord operated) - 450mm minimum bend radius
  •  30mm system 6130M (hand operated) - 300mm minimum bend radius
  •  50mm system 6140M (hand operated) - 500mm minimum bend radius
  •  50mm system 6160M (cord operated) - 600mm minimum bend radius 

* Bend radius is the minimum a track or pole can be bent without kinking, flattening the profile or causing a problem with functionality.  Generally speaking as the bend radius decreases the curvature increases.
