To fit a curtain track inside a recess, the overall length of the
track should be slightly shorter than the actual width of the recess. Standard size PVC or slim aluminium tracks can be cut to fit using a hacksaw.
When measuring, allow for bends. The gentler the bend, the more smoothly your curtains will run. Most PVC or aluminium track can be bent to fit. If the track is heavy duty aluminium you'll need to order it ready bent – just fill in one of our measurement forms in store and we’ll do the rest.
We can also supply and fit the track if your bay has several bends, or if you're unsure about measuring tracks yourself. Please visit one of our shops for details.
