An industry first, the Kirbé vertical curtain track system smoothly pulls fabric up and completely out of the way - unlike traditional curtain tracks that move from side-to-side. This unique design provides greater access to windows and views by eliminating the creation of stack back.

Awards and Recognition

In 2010, Lutron was proud to receive two awards, including Product of the Year, from the Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA) in recognition of the Kirbé vertical curtain track system.

2010 Product of   the Year Most Innovative Overall Design in the Motorisation category

Applications

The use of curtain track is typically limited by stack back – the mass of fabric that gathers as traditional curtain tracks are opened, equating to approximately one-third the total width of the curtain track. The vertical uptake of the Kirbé system eliminates this issue, making it ideal for narrow windows or other areas that could not accommodate curtain track in the past.

For floor-to-ceiling glass, the Kirbé can be recessed into the ceiling, leaving the top of the window unobstructed. It can provide a dramatic way to reveal the screen in a home theater and was designed to clear door hardware, allowing French and sliding doors to fully exploit their view. A decorative cornice from Lutron can also be used for a stylised finish with no need for a recessed pocket.

Style

 
Kirbé Pleat
The Kirbé features a distinctive pleat style, most similar to a ripplefold curtain track, that is created and maintained by the system’s unique header mechanism and bottom bar.
 
Header Mechanism
Reliably and delicately smoothes and pleats fabric as it is taken into and let out of the mechanism.
 
Perma-pleat bottom bar™
Weights fabric and maintains a smooth and even pleat to keep the curtain track's appearance uniform.

System Capacities

Kirbé vertical curtain track system utilises a roller 100™ blind drive.

The standard Kirbé bracket includes provisions for mounting an optional Lutron roller blind, which can be integrated during installation or added at a later time. Depending on the width of the curtain track, brackets can be selected that accept either a roller 64™ or a roller 100 blind drive.
