When searching for window treatment options for your home or commercial space, take a moment to consider improving the efficiency of your windows.
The ComforTrack Plus energy efficient sidetracks not only help make your room more comfortable by blocking drafts, they also block small light gaps between the window frame and window shade. This sidetrack system pays for itself. Throughout the year, you’ll see reduced utility bills and increased comfort – in the winter heating and summer cooling seasons.
It's important to note, that once a shade without sidetracks is ordered, additional costs will incur for retro fitting the shade.Learn more about R-Value
Compare a standard cellular shade to the ComforTrack Plus Energy Saving Sidetrack Insulation System. Notice the large gaps between the edge of the standard shade and the window frame. The gaps allow cool air from the window surface to leak into your room while warm air is escaping. See the difference when you use the ComforTrack Plus Insulation System versus a cellular shade alone! ComforTrack Plus closes the gap, preventing cool air from leaking in and warm air escaping.
Allow light to leak in and along the sides of the window shade.
There is an energy loss where cool air leaks through and warm air escapes.
Use side track insulation system to seal all the gaps between the fabric and wndow.
This window was photographed in a controlled laboratory setting using thermal photography, a process which distinguishes temperature zones as indicated by the color transitions. See the difference a Symphony Shade with ComforTrack Plus makes compared to an uncovered window.
The blue color in this photo indicates the temperature loss of an uncovered, single pane window.
This photo shows the same window wearing a Symphony Cellular Shade with standard hardware. Note the color gradation from blue to green to yellow. The warmer colors indicate a temperature increase due to the inherent insulating effect of cellular fabric.
Add the ComforTrack Plus Energy Saving Sidetrack Insulation System and the coldest blues fade away! Energy leaks are nearly eliminated since ComforTrack Plus seals the gap between the fabric edge and window frame.
The ComforTrack Plus Insulation System is easy to install, and features removable sidetracks that are attached to the window frame with magnets. The durable, UV stable sidetracks are available in white or brown to match your existing trim.
The specially designed bottom rail end caps fit over the sidetracks and allow for smooth movement when raising and lowering the shade.
The sidetracks of ComforTrack Plus Energy Saving Sidetrack Insulation System are the first defense against your window’s energy gap. The sidetracks seal off the gap between the shade and window to create a solid insulating barrier.
The ComforTrack Plus Flex Seal is a clear spring seal that is hidden between the cellular shade and the sidetracks. It flexes open and closed when the shade is raised and lowered to help create an energy tight seal.
The final barrier is easy to miss, but makes a big impact in closing the energy gap. The small space between the head rail and the window frame is sealed off with the Foam Seal which is discretely attached to the back of the head rail.
