Panel Glides

Panel glides also known as Vertical Drapes are a unique, stylish and contemporary product. Sliding panels of fabric are used as a beautiful window furnishing but are also very practical as a room divider.

To maintain a universal look throughout the home or office you can have your Panel Glides made in all the same fabrics used for your Roller and Roman Blinds.

Panel Glides are also commonly used for sliding and bi-fold doors and as room dividers for Studio apartments and restaurants.

Panel glides are considered a modern alternative to vertical blinds without the hassle of chains and trip hazards.
