We have extensive experience in fitting offices, schools, theatres, hospitals and just about any other professional space you can think of. Our motorised curtain track systems are extremely reliable, of the highest quality and can be customised to the exact specification of your business. If you’re currently considering an upgrade to the curtain fixtures and mechanisms in your work space, it’s certainly worth considering motorised systems, the advantages they offer over alternative choices create an extremely compelling case for an upgrade. Read on to discover how Corona Contacts’ array of specialist options can help your business.

Security is essential in all professional environments. It’s vital to protect expensive, unique equipment and personal information stored in the workplace. Motorised curtain track systems offer a considerable upgrade in workplace security by presenting the illusion of occupancy every day, even during weekends and public holidays. This is achieved through automated systems which control curtain opening and closing at set times each day, several times a day if required. The security benefit is particularly useful for businesses whose premises are not consistently occupied or operate outside of regular office hours. Motorised systems even offer remote control via an internet connection; a business owner could be may hundreds of miles away and still be able to operate their fixtures remotely.

Automated operation can also be triggered by lighting conditions. If an area has an issue such as excessive heat from the sun or glare, the curtain tracks can be triggered to operate when the threshold level is reached. Customers working in a presentation or public-facing environment are particularly appreciative of this as it offers an extremely convenient solution with minimal distraction to clients. Over time businesses also benefit from a productivity boost since employees are no longer occupied by the need to leave their workstation and manually operate the curtain fixtures depending on temperature and lighting conditions.

Hard to reach areas tend to reap major benefits from motorised curtain track systems. Often in larger installations such as theatres curtains hang from extremely high suspension points. Issues of access arise often in environments such as these and the weight of large, thick curtains can also pose challenges to manual operation. Automated and remote control motorised curtain track systems solve many of these issues. What’s more, with no need for a manual drawstring any possible health and safety issues arising from ligature hazards are nullified, something our clients in the education world are particularly appreciative of.

These are just a few of the advantages that motorised curtain track systems can provide for your business.
