Curved Drapery Track Template Instructions
Please read through all of these instructions before beginning your template.
Important Note:
Standard Curved Drapery Track
Lutron provides standard curved drapery tracks to fit
around 90 degree bends. These tracks will have a
bend radius of 20 inches. This solution does not
require the creation of a template, and can be found
as a drapery track option in the Shade Configuration
Tool (SCT). To specify, select the Line Items tab in the
SCT, then click on the Add Line Item dropdown where
you will select Standard Curved Drapery Track.
Lutron drapery track can be bent to fit a curved wall, bay window, and many
other special applications.
“S” bends can only be achieved by splicing two bends together.
No splice
Important Note:
Splices cannot be made on a curve.
A splice can only be made on a straight
portion of track that is at least 18 inches long.
A paper template is the only way to ensure accurate curving of the drapery track.
A checklist is included on pages 9 and 10 to help you provide Lutron with all the
information needed to make the curved track with a minimum amount of delay.
Please be sure to use the checklist and attach it to your template prior to
shipping template to Lutron.
More information is always better than not enough information. Digital
photographs help Lutron to see the application area for the curtain track. Email
photos to shadingquotes@lutron.com.
Before beginning with a curved track order, you must obtain a “COM” number to identify the
materials that you are forwarding to us for review. This number will be used to track your order
throughout the process and it is important that it appears on the template and your
documentation. Without a COM number, your template will be rejected.
To obtain your COM number, either call the Lutron Shading Quotes department at
1 (800) 446-1503 or e-mail shadingquotes@lutron.com
Do not begin a template or ask for a COM# until the job is sold. To obtain a rough budgetary
estimate, submit your quote, with necessary notes, via the SCT or email the Lutron Shading
Quotes department and give them measurements and details of track (such as constant or
variable radius, single/dual/tandem track, and splice or no splice.).

Before starting template, please be aware of some
limitations for Lutron curved drapery track:
• Maximum track length is 18 feet without a splice joint.
• With a splice joint, track may be up to 36 feet long.
• Splices can only occur in straight sections of drapery track. Splice must occur on a
straight length of track at least 18 inches long.
• Tight bends more than 90º (i.e. where the two ends of the track bend in towards
each other as shown below) are not possible.
Tight bends are
not possible.
• Tracks have to have a minimum bend radius of 20 inches.
• Minimum spacing for dual tracks is 5 ½ inches center-to-center.
• Finished track may vary ± ¾ inches from template.
18 feet maximum without splice, 30 feet
with splice. Splice can only be located
in straight sections.

Other things to consider:
In the above picture, the bend on the left is tighter than that on the right. Multiple
bends like this on one track are very difficult to make. If the track can be a single
radius, it can be made more accurately.
Note: A splice cannot be used in this example as there is no straight portion of
track available.
Pockets should allow ample room for the track
and drapery.

Using a compass or similar tool, follow wall profile to trace track centerline onto paper.
After completing the trace, go over the pencil line with the black marker.
The typical distance for wall mounted track is 3½ inches from wall surface, however,
your distance may be greater for the curtain to clear things like handles, window sills,
columns, vents, etc.
3½ inches for typical wall mount

• Be sure that the template is taped together in one piece. Mark an “X” over each seam of
paper so that if template shifts in shipping, Lutron will have a reference as to where to join
those pieces. Note: Separate pieces will be rejected.
• Each curved track should have its own template.
The only exception is dual tracks, which can be on the same template.
Write COM # on template.

Carefully roll template (DO NOT FOLD*) and place into a sturdy shipping tube.
* Folding makes it difficult to lay flat, which may distort the true size and shape of curve.
Write your COM#, Quote #, Job Name, and Job info on the outside of the tube.

It is of the highest importance that all items requested in the instructions be
followed. A production engineer will review the template and advise if it is approved
or if additional information/revisions are needed.
If all information was provided correctly and meets the requirements, your curved
track layout will be approved for manufacture. Production of the track will begin
after approval of the template and receipt of a purchase order. Lead time for
shipment of the completed track(s) begins after receipt of the order and approval of
