Patented Single and Dual-Drapery
Rods and Conversion Assemblies*


Dual-Drapery Rod Enhances the Look
and Functionality of Layered Drapery1


Superior to Double Rod with Accent or Full Front Drapery


Layers accent in front of sheers or opaque drapery

without requiring a bare rod exposed across the front

 



The back sections of curved conversion rods telescope into any compatible single-drapery rod


Mounting-bracket pins slip through apertures in the rods to secure the curved conversion rods in a horizontal position.






Telescoped extensions adjust to the desired width of accent drapes, which hang from the front and side sections of the conversion rods.


 

The front sections can also be extended to accommodate full drapery. The wrap-around design insulates and maximizes control of light and privacy, making it ideal when using room-darkening drapery in front of sheers.

 

 

Although the above were manufactured with high-end metals, prototypes

demonstrate high quality can be obtained with inexpensive materials.

Motorized Conversion Assemblies

 

Convert existing standard traverse rods into
motorized single or dual-drapery rod assemblies.


The patented single-rod conversion adds motorized functionality
easily and inexpensively to an existing standard traverse rod.

single motorized

A motorized-drive pulley is contained in a housing with a front aperture shaped to receive one end of the traverse rod.

An aperture penetrating the bottom of the housing is shaped to slip over the pin of the conversion assembly's mounting bracket.

The other end of the traverse rod is mounted, as before, on a traverse-rod bracket.



A plate with apertures designed to receive drapery pins or hooks is attached to the face of the drive-pulley housing.

Apertures in the back end of the housing are similarly designed to receive drapery pins or hooks.





The apertures allow the drapery to wrap around the housing, mirroring the look of the drapery on the other end of the rod, which wraps around the traverse-rod bracket.





The patented dual-drapery rod conversion adds motorized functionality and
enhances the look when layering accent drapes in front of opaque drapery.

dualmotorized


The traverse-rod bracket used with the single-rod conversion is replaced with a take-up pulley contained in a housing that has an aperture shaped to receive the end of the traverse rod.



The curved conversion rods telescope into apertures that penetrate the back of the housings.

Apertures penetrating the bottom surface of the housings are aligned with the apertures penetrating the conversion rods and slipped over the mounting bracket pins to hold the curved conversion rods in a horizontal position for the accent drapes.



The power source for the remote-controlled motor plugs
into a standard outlet. No hard-wiring is required.

1The terms drapery and drapery rods used throughout refer to curtains and curtain rods as well. The rod assemblies were designed with both in mind, and can be easily manufactured for either.
