The Crestron® Drapery System Hardware is a track and mounting system that allows draperies to be mounted to a ceiling, on a wall, or inside a pocket. The hardware offers solutions for straight tracks in either single or dual track applications. Tracks are available in lengths up to 240 inches (610 cm). Additional length is achieved by installing two tracks end to end in a tandem application. Motorized operation is provided by the compact Crestron CSM-QMTDC-DRP-3 Digital QMT® motor. The motor seamlessly integrates with a Crestron control system, enabling the draperies to be easily drawn using remote controls, keypads, and touch screens. The QMT motor snaps into its bracket and has a quick release button to make installation and removal without any special tools quick and easy.
Dual track Drapery Systems create the opportunity for different light conditions within a space. One track can carry a light, sheer drapery fabric to allow filtered light into the room while the other holds a heavier, darker fabric for room darkening conditions. Each track has its own controls, affording great versatility to any dual track application.
Configurations & Styles
Every Drapery System has a draw configuration and arm style. Draw configuration refers to the point or points on the track where the draperies can be opened. In addition to left, right, and center draws, fabric can be parted in an asymmetric draw, in which the drapery is longer on one side, or a multiple draw for spaces that require more than one opening. The master carrier arms bring the drapery fabric sections together. The draw configuration, track style, and fabric pleat all factor into the recommended master carrier arm for a particular Drapery System.
Depending on its individual characteristics, drapery fabrics are pleated into one of several styles. The pinch pleat, Ripplefold, and Accordia-fold are all supported by Crestron Drapery Systems. The carriers from which the draperies hang attach to the fabric in patterns specifically designed to flatter the pleat style. The master carrier arm is also designed to complement the pleat style and draw configuration. For example, center-draw draperies with a Ripplefold often use an overlap arm where the fabric meets for an illusion of continuity when in the closed position. Pinch pleat draperies with a center draw achieve the same aesthetic with arms that butt up against one another.
Drapery System Hardware can be mounted to a ceiling, on a wall, or inside a pocket. For ceiling mounts, the track can be mounted using cam lock mounting brackets, which feature a handle that rotates to secure the track into the ceiling. The track can also be mounted directly to the ceiling with screws. For wall mounts, adjustable “L” brackets facilitate installation of the drapery track. The drapery bracket can be adjusted after installation in front-mounted installations, ensuring mounting precision by allowing the installer to make changes without having to remove and reinstall the entire bracket.
Pocket mounts conceal the drapery track motor, rail, and other hardware. The Drapery System can be mounted inside the pocket via cam lock mounting brackets, screws, or “L” brackets.
Drapery tracks greater than 192 inches (488 cm) in length require a splice, in which one, long track is broken up into two or more shorter tracks. Crestron also offers track splicing on shorter tracks as a convenient shipment solution. Drapery Systems with spliced tracks are shipped in multiple sections and then reassembled at the installation site using a splice bar.
