Curtain track is a kind of curtain accessories for hanging curtains, which is used for curtain landing and opening and closing, and can increase the beauty of curtain fabric. There are many kinds of curtain tracks, which are generally divided into two series: open track and dark track. Dark track includes: nano track, aluminum alloy track, and silent track. The texture includes plastic steel, iron, copper, wood, aluminum alloy and other materials. There are many kinds of open rail, such as wooden pole, aluminum alloy pole, steel pipe pole, iron pole, plastic steel pole, etc. the common form is art pole. In addition, there is a kind of curtain track called snake curtain, which is mainly popular in Europe, Taiwan, Japan and other regions, and has begun to emerge in China recently.
Concealed rail profile:
Based on aluminum alloy, the so-called nano track is a plastic profile extruded from plastic with nano plastic filler. By adding UV resistant additives and toughening agents, the aging and fracture problems of long-term use are avoided. In addition, the manufacturing process accuracy is easy to control, and the cost is often smaller than that of aluminum alloy. It is a good choice for the mid bottom market and customers. There are many kinds of aluminum alloy tracks. The surface treatment includes oxidation, spraying and electrophoresis. The raw materials are primary aluminum alloy. Many cheap aluminum alloy tracks are made of recycled materials. The surface treatment is electrophoresis, with smooth surface and no fading. Pulley:
There are two categories: plastic and nylon. Most plastic ones use recycled materials, with a dull and rough surface, which will break and age soon after use. Its pull ring is generally bent with ordinary iron wire, which will rust and pollute the curtains after a long time. Good pulleys are made of wear-resistant native nylon, which is smooth and burr free, and can be pulled smoothly by hand. The pull ring is made of 304 stainless steel, which can be distinguished by a magnet when you choose.
Generally, 0.5mm thick ordinary coating is adopted, and the pressing plate is made of recycled plastic, which is easy to rust and damage. A good installation code is the guarantee of the firmness of the track. 1.0mm steel plate should be used, and nylon pressing plate should be used. The surface should be strictly cleaned by pickling and scaling cleaning process, with firm coating and convenient installation.
Generally, the cheap track is made of recycled plastic, with a dull surface and no toughness. The excellent cover is made of high-quality ABS, with a smooth surface and clear trademarks and words.
Generally, the track packaging is simple and no packaging. A good track will use a well printed PE packaging bag.
There are more open rails now. The Ming track emphasizes decoration, which is generally divided into art track and Roman track. The open rails are made of aluminum alloy, solid wood, steel pipe, plastic steel, etc.
1. Solid wood decorative Rail:
It is relatively common and has various colors. According to the types, it can be divided into transparent color and covering color. Basically, it depends on the surface treatment, whether it is smooth, whether the paint is uniform, and whether the shape of the decorative head is symmetrical. There are two kinds of solid wood decorative rails with and without silencing strips, no matter which one is good or bad, purely depending on personal preferences and needs.
2. Aluminum alloy decorative track:
There are many in the market. The difference in quality depends on its wall thickness. The relatively thick wall of a good pipe is 1.5mm-2mm. Secondly, look at the design of the pull ring. Many pull rings of aluminum alloy decorative rails have grooves on the upper and lower parts of the rail, which is actually a fake decorative rail design. The pull ring of the real decorative rod slides directly on the rod, and the manufacturing process of the poor decorative rod is rough.
3. Steel pipe decorative rod:
Commonly known as iron rail, surface treatment includes spraying and electroplating, with diameters of 16mm, 19mm, 20mm, 25mm, etc. the quality depends on the quality of spraying and electroplating, the thickness of steel plate of mounting foot, and the thickness of pipe wall.
Note: the quality of the window rail determines the smooth opening and closing of the curtain. When shopping, you can't covet the cheapness of the track. You should compare it from the above aspects. The track is the foundation of the curtain. A good track is smooth and firm, which can save you a lot of trouble and money in the long run.
Window rail classification:
*According to its shape, it can be divided into: straight rail, curved rail, telescopic rail, etc., which are mainly used for windows with curtain boxes. The most commonly used straight rails are: heavy rail, plastic nano rail, low noise rail, etc.
*According to its materials, it can be divided into: aluminum alloy, plastic, iron, wood, etc.
*Window rails can be divided into Roman poles, artistic poles, etc. according to their workmanship. Roman pole and art pole are suitable for windows without curtain boxes, which are the most decorative
