The number of tracks will generally be determined by the number of panels however, it is discretionary. The track colours available are White, Birch, Anodised and Black. As an option, you may choose your panel glide blinds to be made with extra track at either or both ends to allow the panels to stack further away from the opening, e.g. over the wall.
Number of Panels

Our experts will explain to you which panel will be fixed and the panels will slide. You may wish to have the panels stack behind or in front of the fixed panel
Unless otherwise stipulated the wand colour will match the track colour. Please note that wands are used in SP Screens Panel Glide Blinds instead of cords due to Australian laws aimed at reducing strangulation risk in children.

Care & Maintenance – Panel Glide Blinds
The application of a silicone-based lubricant to the wand is recommended. Regular dusting of the fabric will ensure no build-up of dust and grime occurs. Professional cleaners using ultrasonic cleaning methods are recommended. Any other form of washing of the blinds is not recommended.
Please Note: SP Screens uses the latest guillotine, crush and ultrasonic fabric cutting tools depending on the type of fabric. We do not side hem any fabrics so caution must be taken when operating blinds to avoid unnecessary rubbing which may cause fraying or other damage. With normal operation of a cord or chain operated blind, other than cleaning there should be NO circumstance where anything should come in contact with the fabric of the blind. Should you notice any instance where your blinds do appear to be rubbing on anything, you must report this to the place of purchase immediately so preventative action can be taken. Fraying or any other damage caused by the blind rubbing against anything is not covered by warranty.
