The Silent Gliss Autoglide 5100 range features complete electric curtain track kits, operated by a selection of different controllers, depending on the model. All four models are available to buy on this page.

They are the smoothest and quietest electric curtain tracks available. They are used extensively throughout the world in some of the top hotels, establishments and private homes.

They are extremely robust and come with a 5 year warranty as standard.

The Autoglide 5100 range is mains powered, can be up to 6 metres long and is and supplied with a 5 metre cable and fitted UK plug.

You can hang standard curtains on the track or you can buy special Silent Gliss "Wave" curtains that always hang in a professional-looking, uniform manner.

We make your Autoglide tracks to your measurements, and they can be bent at the time of manufacture to fit into bay windows. We have an easy way of working out all the angles for a perfect fit.

Each model comes with different remote controls

Please choose an Autoglide model

Track length How to measure?
Your width: cm Please enter a length between 50 and 600
Please select one of the four models above for an actual price

The motor is included in the track length and so doesn't affect your measurements. Your curtain will cover the motor.


Bending More information

Do you require bending for a bay window?


Please choose whether or not you need your track bending
We will be in touch once you have placed your order to work out the perfect fit.

Curtain layout

If you're inside, looking out, where would you like the open curtain(s)?


** Silent Gliss Curtains can be made up to 5m in width. Because your track length is greater than 5m, the "One each side" curtain option has been automatically selected so two curtains can make up your full track length. If this is not an option for you, please get in touch with us. In some circumstances curtains can be made wider with joining. **

Motor side More information

If you're inside, looking out, where should the motor be to be closest to a power socket? If you're just having one curtain, this would normally be the same side.



Fixing brackets More information



Additional control for multiple tracks

If you have multiple 5100 Autoglide tracks and want to control them independently with one remote, add this controller, and you can control up to 6 tracks, or groups of tracks individually.

Autoglide Models and Controls

As well as the control options listed below, each model has a new feature called "Touch and Go", where a small tug on the fabric of the curtain will start the motor to fully open or close your curtains.

Autoglide B

The 5100B comes with a wireless switch to open and close your curtains, and features a wall-mountable base. The switch can be removed from the base and used as a remote, then returned to the wall-mount for safe keeping. The wall mount is usually put next to your main light switch or favourite chair, so you always know where the controller is.

Autoglide R

The 5100R also comes with the wall-mountable switch, as well as a dedicated wireless remote, for keeping in easy reach or on the coffee table. The remote is slightly larger than the wall switch to make it easier to hold in your hand.

Autoglide T

The 5100T comes with the wall switch and with a wireless, programmable timer unit.

You can set your curtains to open and close automatically without you having to take any action or even be in the house. This makes the timer perfect for security when you're away.

Autoglide TC

The 5100TC comes with all control options, so you get the wireless wall switch, the remote control and the timer unit.


Controlling Multiple Tracks

Each supplied controller controls a single "channel".

If you plan on having multiple electric curtain tracks, you can obviously control them independently with their own controllers. Each track and remote will be set to different channels so they don’t interfere with each other.

If you have more than one electric curtain track and set them all to the same channel, a single channel controller will control all of the curtain tracks, but they will operate all at the same time, rather than being able to operate them independently.

If you want to be able to control multiple curtain tracks independently with one single controller, take a look at our Silent Gliss 10948 multi-channel remote. You would leave each curtain track set to its own distinct channel, and the multi-channel controller will operate each channel separately.

Fitting

Tracks are supplied for you to install yourself.

Your track(s) will be supplied fully assembled and made to your exact measurements. Minimal DIY knowledge is required, you only have to fit the supplied brackets that hold the track. The system comes with a 5m cable and a fitted UK mains plug so no electrician is required. Please see the comprehensive fitting manual:

Also see the short "fitting" video in the video section below.

Please note - curtain hanging

An image showing how the top of the curtains should be below the track and not above it

Please note that curtains should be hung so the top of the curtains are below the profile of the track. If the tops of the curtains protrude up and cover the track, it may impede the motor and affect the operation of the system and possibly affect the warranty.

Bay Windows and Bending

If you have a shaped window, such as a bay window, the track can be bent for you during manufacture.

The 5100 can be bent up to two times, or have one long, continual curve. This is suitable for most 3-pane bay windows. If more bends are required, either consider multiple tracks, or take a look at the Silent Gliss 5600 Electric Curtain Track which can be bent as many times as required.

Simply select the "bending" option when designing your track. We will be in touch to ask you to take a few specific measurements in order to make sure your track fits perfectly.

Silent Gliss Wave Curtains and Fabrics

Wave Curtains

You can now order Silent Gliss Wave Curtains made to perfectly fit your Autoglide track.

Wave technology makes your curtains always hang in a professional-looking, uniform wave. It's the secret of high-end installations and is now available for your home.

To order curtains, select the option "Yes, I'd like curtains too", and all the configurable options will appear for you to select.

You are guided through the process step-by-step, and if there's anything you are unsure about, feel free to get in touch.

Here's a link to our full Silent Gliss Wave guide.



Silent Gliss Fabrics

In our track designer, you have the option to purchase high quality Silent Gliss curtains along with your electric curtain track.

The fabrics we offer for curtains are Silent Gliss' own, specifically designed and refined for this application.

We currently offer fabrics from their two most popular groups, Colorama 1 and Colorama 2, which have both vivid and more toned-down colours to suit any application.

The fabrics are the same colours in both groups, but:

  • Colorama 1 is slightly thinner and therefore more transparent than Colorama 2.
  • Colorama 2 is thicker and lets less light through.

Here are a few examples of Colorama 1 vs Colorama 2 fabrics to show the difference in transparency, but don't forget these are without any form of curtain lining, which stops more light and adds privacy.

Colorama 1 Colorama 2
Colorama 1, fabric 423 for comparison with the next photo of the same fabric in Colorama 2 Colorama 2, fabric 423 for comparison with the previous photo of the same fabric in Colorama 1
Colorama 1, fabric 427 for comparison with the next photo of the same fabric in Colorama 2 Colorama 2, fabric 427 for comparison with the previous photo of the same fabric in Colorama 1
Colorama 1, fabric 410 for comparison with the next photo of the same fabric in Colorama 2 Colorama 2, fabric 410 for comparison with the previous photo of the same fabric in Colorama 1

Please note - curtain hanging

Frequently Asked Questions

Are your Autoglide Curtain tracks 100% authentic Silent Gliss?

Unlike most of our competitors who either assemble Autoglide tracks themselves or buy them assembled from companies other than Silent Gliss, our tracks are manufactured by Silent Gliss directly and sent straight to your door, so you can be assured of the build quality.

Can the Silent Gliss Autoglide 5100 track be bent for use in a bay window?

Yes! The Autoglide electrical curtains tracks can be bent up to twice per track to a minimum radius of 250mm for an additional cost. Just tick the box for bending on the order page and we'll get in touch to go through the measurements with you once the order is placed. There is a testimonial on each product page from people who have bought tracks with bending.

Is the "Length of Track" requested on your Autoglide price calculator inclusive of the motor?

Yes, the track is the same size with or without the motor as it hangs down behind the track, so please enter the full length of track you require. We recommend taking off 1cm if going in a recess for a good fit.

Do you supply these Autoglide electric curtains with hooks? If not, which curtain hooks are recommended?

Standard curtain hooks work perfectly well with the track and there is no specific hook recommended. Hooks are not supplied with the tracks.

How long will it take to receive my Silent Gliss electric curtain track order?

On average, just 5 working days for your automated curtains track to be made to your custom measurements and shipped out to you (approx. 7 working days for bent electric tracks). Where curtains are ordered with tracks, the lead time will be approximately 20 working days and the track and curtains will be delivered together.

What happens if the electric curtains track is found to be scratched or damaged when it is unwrapped?

When initially signing for the items, if the boxes look damaged, please sign for them damaged or send them back. If the packaging looks fine and when you open up the product is damaged then please contact us on 01543 279996 and we will organise the product to be picked up and a replacement sent. The Silent Gliss Autoglides come with a 5 year warranty.

How much does delivery cost for the Autoglide motorised curtain system?

Delivery of tracks and curtain rails to addresses in the UK Mainland are completely free ( excluding Northern Ireland). The price you see on this website is the price you pay. If you are interested in ordering Autoglide tracks from us from outside of the UK Mainland, please give us a call on +44 1543 279996.

Can the electrical curtain tracks be operated manually in the event of a power cut?

Yes, the Autoglide 5100 tracks can be manually overridden in the event of a power cut.

Can you supply spare parts for Electric Curtain tracks?

Please see the automated curtains spares / components page for parts for the current Autoglide systems. We cannot supply spares for older systems such as Swish tracks unfortunately.

Can it be supplied with 6 wall fixing brackets - to make use of existing holes?

Brackets are supplied 100mm in from each end, then another bracket every 300mm – 500mm intervals. Extra brackets can be supplied if required.

Which couriers will you use to deliver my automated curtains order?

We use Tuffnells for their reliability and speed.

Do you offer any other colours than white?

The Silent Gliss curtain tracks are only made in white at the moment. They currently have no plans to manufacture any different colours.

What weight curtains can these tracks support?

The Autoglide 5100 series can support up to 25kg if straight, up to 15kg if bent. 25kg includes most light to medium weight domestic curtains. See our article - 'How Much Do Curtains Weigh?'. The 5600 can support even greater weights.

Delivery Time

Our Silent Gliss Autoglide 5100 electric curtain tracks are made to measure and usually delivered within 5 to 7 working days from your order being placed. If you order curtains too, these can take up to 20 days and everything will be delivered together.

We will always let you know in advance when your track will be arriving.

5 Year Warranty

All our Silent Gliss products come with a 5 year warranty as standard and the 5100 is no exception.

If your product suffers a fault during this time, get in touch with us directly and we'll find the most efficient way to rectify, repair or replace your product.
