Print Instruction Sheet Installation

Track above architrave

Step 1: Consider drop height

When deciding height of track installation whether it’s for swags & tails or fabric valances workout how far the track covering will hang down and consider how it will impinge on the view out of your window.

For curtains made to Easy-Track specifications the drop should be between 2.5cm and 3 cm more than the finished length of the curtains - this will allow the curtains to hang between 1cm and 1.5 cm above the floor

Consider Drop Height


Step 2: Mark the wall

After working out the drop (point on wall where the underneath of the tracks will be mounted). Using a stud finder locate the studs in the wall and draw a pencil mark at your drop measurement. Note: Some windows have wood everywhere and some windows have no studs at all. If no studs can be found wall plugs will have to be used. The gap between brackets should be no more than 650mm. Always measure track drop from floor.

Mark the wall


Step 3: Fix small gold brackets to wall and mark centre

Using a cordless drill and biggest screws - screw small gold brackets to wall with top of bracket even with pencil marks already made on wall. Leave 2 marks on each architrave without brackets these are for larger brackets.

Measure outside architrave to outside architrave half this measurement and measure out from one side, pencil mark this point at the same height on your wall as the other marks - this is your window middle point.

Step 4: Mark top of track and attach brackets

Subtract the outside of window architrave to outside of window architrave measurement from the track length and divide by 2, put a mark on the track each side at this distance. This is where the end of architrave would be if you held the track up on top of the architrave in the middle.Also place a mark in the centre of the track underneath. Attach a large bracket to each end of track. Bracket can be lined up with either left or right side of track top pencil mark. Make sure position lines up with window side stud and bracket won't interfere with the side of architrave. Attach brackets with long side on top of track and shorter side hanging down. With the cordless drill screw from top using small thick screws provided.

Step 5: Before attaching track to wall

When screwing into small bracket in wall from underneath – position the tip of the screw as close to front side of bracket hole as possible – this will force track closer to the wall as screw tightens up.

Step 6: Fix track to wall

Place tiny screw on cordless drill end and place drill in a position you can easily reach from ladder. Lift track up from the center and place on top of gold brackets already attached to wall. Align middle track pencil mark with middle wall pencil mark. Using smallest screws while pushing track hard against wall screw – screw track to bracket. One screw should hold it till you organise yourself to put the remaining screws in.

Installers opinion -

“As an EasyTrack installer, I’ve set up hundreds of tracks for many happy customers. People are always amazed at the superior craftsmanship and quality of the curtains, tracks and blinds they receive and just how easy they are to use.”

 

Happy customers 2010!!

“For many years I have had trouble sleeping due to the light and noise coming from a busy intersection nearby my house. After a friend had EasyTrack installed in his own house I decided to try the system out for myself and no longer get the loud traffic noise and irritating street lights through my bedroom window. Thank you EasyTrack!”

 

“I grew up with Easy Track in my home as a teenager, and my parents swear by it. Now that I am building my own house I can’t think of a better product to really compliment all of our hard work.”

 

“I’ve stayed in countless hotels, holiday apartments and guestrooms throughout Australia and have never come across a curtain tracking system as easy, elegant and remarkable as the Easy Track system. So simple to take down, wash or change and rehang; I’ll never use anything else!”
