Motor Selection

Motor load capacity according to track opening, shape, length

  • In the charts below we give the maximum weight of the curtain in kg, which can be motorised by the different GlydeaTM versions according to the different track configurations, and the length of the track.
  • When calculating the weight of the curtain the fullness ratio of the curtain has to be taken into account:

Weight of the curtain = fabric weight/m2 x Curtain covered area x fullness ratio

  • The traversing capacity is given for an installation with no extra friction created by the fabric curtain touching the rail or the track pelmet.

  • Maximum weight per runner: 1.5kg.
  • Maximum distance between runners: 10cm.

Track bending and curving minimum radius

For bending and curving track length and radius limitation please refer to the specific data sheet.


Traversing capacity for 'Classic' and 'Ripplefold' curtain
