Nexgen Traverse Rod SetNEX
Heavy duty aluminum track set in a modern contemporary look. The track is 1" tall and 1" deep with ball bearing carriers.
Ball bearing carriers are typically used with pleated draperies or curtains with pin hooks
The track is rated at 4 lbs per foot; for example, a 10 ft. track will hold a maximum of 40 lbs
Includes decorative end caps, decorative wall brackets, carriers (3 1/2 per foot for ball bearing carriers & 4 per foot for swivel slides) and two 36" batons. Ceiling clips are available, but only in zinc color. They bring the track almost flush to the ceiling. They show, but only slightly along the top edge of the track. If doing a ceiling mount, you must request the ceiling clips in the shopping cart instruction box.
Since this is a baton draw, you can use one panel as a one-way draw, two panels as a split draw, or multiple panels and draw them any direction desired.
Longer rods ship in multiple sections with hidden interior splices.
Shop Wave fold panels (select swivel slides)
Shop Grommet panels (select swivel slides w/ attached hook)
I bought this rod because I needed a heavy-duty rod to hang 2 curtain panels, 9' high and 15' across. I wanted it to span wall to wall. The rod itself is very sturdy!! And so are the brackets. Plus I like that the brackets were more decorative (less hardware-like).
I will say that given the strength and sturdiness of the rod, the endcaps seem cheap and plastic. But since I wanted the smallest endcaps, they offered so that the rod could stretch wall to wall, it doesn’t matter that much to me. They aren’t very noticeable. I don’t know if more decorative endcaps would have been higher quality.
The ball-bearing carriers also don’t glide quite as smoothly as other carriers I have in cheaper rods. But they work well enough.
Customer service was FANTASTIC! I had numerous questions before I made the purchase. I got very quick and accurate responses. I also had some installation questions after purchase, which were answered equally fast. The rod was initially shipped with the wrong carriers. But within an hour of emailing them, they had verified that the shipment was incorrect and had shipped replacements. Can’t say enough how great they were to work with.
The rail is just right for our grommet curtains. We can now pull them all the way across without a bracket getting in the way. The rail brackets are great and quite easy to install. The rail came within days of ordering. Very prompt service.
I looked forever to find this traverse rod, for my curtain with grommets. I wanted to pull it to one side, which is why I couldn't use a traditional curtain rod. This rod is so nice and smooth and very modern looking. Very happy with it.
