Good Housekeeping Panel Track Shades Panel Track Shades are a great way to cover patio doors and wide expanses of the windows. The fabric panels glide along an aluminum track. A 3" tall valance with a matching fabric insert strip completes your look and covers the track. Panel Track Shades coordinate with Good Housekeeping Roller and Roman Shades to create matching looks within your home. Panel track shades can also be used as room dividers, separating space when needed, and then quickly retracting to open up a room. Add the wand control option for cord free control in homes with children and pets.

Tips To Remember:
Use a steel measuring tape
Round down to the nearest 1/8" for width
Round up to the nearest 1/8" for height
See Product Specifications for more specific product info.
Sizes should always be provided in this format: Width x Height
On any measurement given, the factory does have a +/- 1/8 of an inch variance allowance.
Measure For Panel Track Blinds
Measure Depth: See chart on next page to determine if window casing has enough depth for an inside-mount window treatment.
Measure Width: Measure the inside width of window casing in three places. Record narrowest measurement.
Measure Height: Measure the inside height from the top of window casing to top of sill (or to the floor for patio doors) in three places.
Record shortest measurement.
Note: Do not take any deductions for clearance. The manufacturer will take necessary deductions for a perfect fit.
Measure Width: Measure width to be covered. We recommend 3" overlap on each side (6" total) for optimum light control and privacy.
Manufacturer will deduct .5 inches from width and height.
Record measurement. If you want the entire window uncovered when the shade is fully open, you will need to add more than 3" to the width.
Determine Headrail Location: Determine headrail mounting position and mark the spot.
Measure Height: Measure height to be covered from top of headrail location to bottom edge or top of sill if there is one. Record measurement.
Allow 3" for adequate mounting area above the window. If shade extends to the floor (i.e. to cover a patio door), measure height from the headrail
to the floor, and deduct ½" for Roller, Solar and Roman Shade fabrics, or 1" for Natural Shade materials in order for the panels to clear the floor.
Note: The manufacturer makes NO deductions on outside-mount installations.
