Curtain rod technology

Curtain rods that need to cover a long distance are fixed to the wall above the window using aesthetically beautiful mounts. Depending on their length, intermediate support brackets may be used. These brackets are also aesthetically pleasant and complement the design of the curtain rod. In the kitchen or bathroom, clamping or bistro rods are frequently used. This variety is simply affixed between the window frames without screws or drilling. The curtains are located immediately in front of the window, usually only covering it partly to provide optimum privacy protection and sufficient light at the same time.

Delicate ropes constitute a modern alternative to classical curtain rods. They are affixed with curtain clips or hooks for a relaxed decoration with transparent fabrics. Tension brackets that are securely incorporated into the wall transfer tensile stress to the rope while providing an visual highlight by the window. In addition to wall brackets, we also offer recess mounting systems. They create rope tension between one recess and another.

Curtain rods are attached to the wall above the window and ensure that the lower curtain and the decorative hanging are free to flow in the desired wave shape. The textile window decoration is either pulled over the rod via loops or attached using a folded band. The transparent lower curtain normally covers the entire window while ensuring that the room receives enough light without granting outsiders views inside. The decorative hangings are made from opaque materials and can be attached on one or both sides. If required, they can be attached using a separate rod and pulled closed.

In general, curtains lend any kind of room an additional touch of comfort and cosiness. The modern, purist style of interior design initially frowned upon the idea of covering of large windows: curtains would make the room too comfortable. Today, transparent polyester fabrics, casual linens and delicate colours have turned these views of modern interior design upside down. In addition, beautifully purist curtain rods in stainless steel joined the stage, giving the art of window decoration a new mode of expression. In bedrooms and children’s rooms, it is important to choose a fabric that darkens the room adequately. A combination of roller or pleated blinds and decorative hangings is also recommended.

This depends on the diameter of the rod: from 160cm to 200cm, an intermediate beam is installed.

The length always refers to the length of the rod without any end pieces.

Round rods are used for eyelet or loop panels. Inner rails are used for sliding curtains or decorative hangings with gliders or rollers. Both rods can be combined on a pole system, allowing the curtain to be moved easily in front of the window (using the inner rail), while the side hangings are normally fixed (to the round rod).

The pole systems are generally supposed to be attached to the wall. For a ceiling installation, a special support is required. Wall mounts are available for most rod diameters.

Curtain rails

Curtain rails are the undisputed classic among curtain fasteners. They are attached to the ceiling. Softly flowing fabrics and curtains fall freely and airily, while angle pieces ensure that even curved distances are covered with elegance. Curtain rails are available with one, two or three glider channels. In addition, curtain rails can be combined with attractive laths.

Curtain rails are directly screwed onto the ceiling. They visually blend into the wall and remain almost invisible. Round intermediate sections allow for the rail to be guided around corners. Aluminium rails are securely attached to the ceiling using ceiling mounts.

Curtain rails consist of three rails: the first and second are at a smaller distance to each other and used e.g. for side hangings that are not decorated across their entire width.

Panel curtains

Panel curtains are made of straight fabric panels. They are moved to the right position in front of the window using rail systems. A purist and straightforward design element, they have introduced curtains to modern interior design and make for a particularly attractive eye-catcher in elegant rooms with subdued decoration. A hem weight at the lower edge ensures that the panel stays in its place and remains smooth and stable.

Panel curtains are attached to the ceiling using a rail system. The fabric panels are slid across the window along guide rails. They are easily detached or attached thanks to a Velcro fastener. Depending on the window size and desired decoration, the rails are available with up to five guide rails.

Panel curtain rails

Sliding curtains are an attractive alternative to classical curtains. They are used for privacy and sun protection especially in spaces with a modern ambiance. To ensure that the sliding curtain can be moved to the desired position in front of the window quickly and easily, the smooth, floor-length fabric panels are attached to the ceiling using a so-called panel carrier and a rail system. These rail systems are available in aluminium or white. They have a modern, subtle look and leave the centre stage to the panel curtains. In order to layer several layers of fabric and achieve the required privacy protection effect, panel curtain rails are available with up to 5 tracks.

These rails are directly screwed onto the ceiling. Gardinia offers a complete rail package including mounting elements, panel carriers, etc. Please also take note of our installation instructions. You can directly download all information and documents.
