Panel Tracks For Chicago Homes Sliding panel tracks are a Chicago glass door or large window’s best friend. Perfect for patio doors, sliding glass doors, and more – panel tracks offer privacy, style, and versatility. Choose from a wide array of styles, colors, and fabrics with panel tracks – some of the most customizable window treatments in Chicago. What are Panel Track Blinds? Panel track blinds (or just panel tracks) are a trendy alternative to traditional hanging blinds in Chicago. Suspended from a carrier track, their lavish fabric panels glide without the hassle of turning, rotating, or tangling. The panels are much larger than most vertical blind[s| slats]35], blocking more light and adding a more modern style to your space. Panel track blinds are also much lower maintenance than vertical blinds, since they have fewer moving parts to manage and no chance of broken slats. The panels smoothly glide and stack onto each other when you open them, and easily glide back into place to shut. Benefits of Panel Tracks Modern, chic, trendy – panel track blinds are some of the most fashion-forward window treatments. But that’s just one of their many benefits: Ease of Use: Panel track blinds offer all the perks of normal blinds, but without the hassle of turning them around to shut them, swinging slats, or fraying cords. Privacy: Panel tracks always sit parallel to the window, so there’s never an angle of light coming in between the panels. Light Control & Energy Efficiency: The large, bold panels let you control the natural light in your space, and they can help block energy loss through your windows. Where Can You Use Panel Tracks Panel track blinds are best used in certain places in Chicago homes. See if they make sense in some of these spots. Sliding Patio Door Panel Tracks Panel tracks are the perfect accent to sliding patio doors. They slide the same way as your door and offer the protection and privacy you need for a sliding door. They’re a lot easier to use than classic vertical blinds, which can be a hassle to open and close. Panel Tracks for French Doors Like with sliding doors, panel tracks are beautiful accents to French doors. Slide the panels to the side to get easy access to the door, or draw them closed to darken your space. Sliding panel tracks work especially well on French doors where only one door opens, because you can conserve space by stacking the panels on the side. Panel Tracks on Tall Windows Panel tracks aren’t limited to just doors–they’re fantastic for the taller windows in your home. Sliding panel tracks let in all the light you want without covering up a single inch of your big beautiful windows.
