Silent Gliss offer a huge range of products suitable for the domestic and contract markets. Their products are recognised worldwide as being of the highest quality. Why not consider having your curtains and blinds fully integrated with your lighting and home entertainment system? Large expanses of curtain can be opened and closed at the touch of a button, or programmed to close automatically at a certain time of day. Hard to access roller or Roman blinds can be raised or lowered by means of a sleek hand-held remote control. We can provide electrical diagrams and work with your designer/architect/developer to incorporate these specialist products in your home. We can take detailed and precise measurements for every possible combination of window treatments. This is a chargeable service but we take full responsibility for the measurements we provide. Poles for bay windows are very tricky to measure for and the measurements must be taken at the height the pole is to be fitted. We are used to assessing windows of all types and can advise on suitable treatments. We work closely with one of the UK’s leading soft furnishing workshops. Their services include a complete range of hand-made curtains, blinds, cushions, bed base valances, pelmets, headboards. In addition they are able to order fabrics from companies such as Romo, Zinc, Andrew Martin, Zimmer Rohde, Colefax & Fowler, Designers Guild and Osborne & Little.

Covered Lath & Fascia

This is a very neat and unobtrusive way of hiding a curtain track, and it works particularly well in situations where there is very little space between the top of the window and the ceiling. The lath is a wooden top-board which is covered tightly in the same fabric as the curtains. The fascia is a small down-stand also tightly wrapped in fabric, which hides the track running immediately behind it. When the curtains are open during the day you simply see a narrow strip of fabric, when closed at night, the heading of the curtain entirely hides the lath. The pictures below show how the fitter constructs the covered lath, and how it looks with the curtains in place.
