Built-In Traversing Drapery Rods are a wonderful combination of function and beauty. Traversing rods have the ability to traverse long expanses without the use of cut by-pass rings or by-pass brackets and they provide ease of operation. 
At Window Imagination you can select from different rod styles and diameters and an endless array of finishes. Our traversing drapery rods can even traverse a bay or curve.
Whether you choose Pinch Pleat or Ripplefold, either Hand, Wand, Cord Drawn or Motorized – you’ll get a drapery hardware solution designed for your client’s needs.
In addition, if you have heavy duty drapes that need to traverse, we have heavy-duty options available to address those needs.

Decorative Traversing Drapery Rods: WOOD

Remember, ANY of our wooden drapery rods can be made traversing.

  • For our Standard Traversing Rods, we use a 1″ Heavy Duty C Track inserted into the back of the rod, so it is not visible from below.
  • For Standard Ripplefold Traversing Rods, we use KS Track Systems which are inserted into the bottom of the rod and are finished to match, so they are barely noticeable.
  • For heavy draperies we use a variety of heavy duty track systems with ball-bearing carriers. The heavy duty track systems, which are inserted into the bottom of the rodding, are also finished to match the rod. (Minimum rod size of 1 5/8″ required for heavy duty tracks.)
  • Regular Traversing Rods are available in 1 3/8″, 1 5/8″, 2″ and 2 1/4″ diameters
  • Ripplefold Traversing Rods are available in 1 5/8″, 2″ and 2 1/4″ diameters
  • Motorized Traversing Rods are available in 1 5/8″, 2″ and 2 1/4″ diameters
