General Information:

The Phantomcurtain motor is an electrically operated, automatic curtain opening and closing unit. It is designed to operate on any shape or length of heavy duty continuous corded track (3mm diameter cord) providing the weight of pull on the cord is not greater than 8kg.  With its unique design it can be fitted either way round on the wall, allowing easy installation for right and left hand corded tracks.


The Phantomcurtain motor can be wall mounted in any position provided that the cords enter the top slot in line with the drive pulley and do not chafe the sides of the housing. It is recommended that the unit be situated low down so the curtains can be opened and closed by hand in case of power failure.
