Sliding Window / July 25, 2018 / Marguerite Mathieu
You will then need to install the panels into the rails. This can be hard because they are designed to not fall out. There may be Velcro strips you can install on the inside of the head rail to secure the windows. This should also let you slip in the panels. The valance returns attach to joiners but you may have to trip excess fabric. Woven wooden valances come with an aluminium L joint in the corner that inserts into the panel. The last step is to install the cords which move the panels along the track.
Especially good for covering patio doors these window coverings preserve an outdoors look. Some interior decorators also use them as attractive room dividers. The dramatic size of these wall to wall floor to floor window coverings creates a striking image. To install these window coverings you need some kind of track to hold the window frame. Unlike wood blinds where the window and blinds are separate in sliding panels they are the same. Some have tracking on the top and bottom while some only have it on one side.
Next you need to install the head rail. Just like the lower track the pivot brackets must be a few inches from the wall. Sometimes you may need more than one track to cover a room. This also allows the window panels to be stacked upon each other. If you want to add an additional valance to the mix make sure you use one that is deigned for that window panel. Otherwise it will not fit correctly.
