Smile Kvartal - Motorized?

Has anybody successfully motorized the Kvartal panel track system? If so, how did you do it? What worked? Any snags to avoid?

Thanks in advance for sharing.

Re: Kvartal - Motorized?

Not possible- the motorized ones have pulleys inside the actual rod. The Kvartal system is purely manual- there's no pull string. You can't motorize curtains if they don't have a pull string.

What you could possibly do is buy a bunch of cheap traverse rods, disassemble them, and then use the parts in the Kvartal line. Then add a motor to the pulley string- these add-on motors sell for about $90.

This may give you an idea about how it works: How to Restring A Traverse Curtain Rod - YouTube
