Panel track blinds are a type of window covering especially suitable for large windows and doors. A panel of material is attached to a sliding track system, usually wheeled for smooth operation.
Panel track blinds are relatively new to the window covering arena. Advantages of using a panel track blind include less dust collected, ease of replacement, minimal movement and versatility in interior design. The safety of children and pets often comes into play with window treatments. Panel track blinds keep safety concerns at bay because they are usually operated by a stick wand and only if required can also be operated by cord.
Panel track blinds stay mostly static with the track providing stable placement, reducing blind breakage and replacement costs. Some models offer weighted panel bottoms to hold the paneltaut using gravity. The panels offer a clean, sleek look and are manufactured in a wide array of materials and patterns. The blinds are typically available in fabrics. Parents of young children may appreciate the ease of cleaning l panels, which can be wiped down with a damp cloth or sponge.
Additionally, the tracks do not take up much space above the window or door.
