PVC Curtain Track White
Having never installed a curtain track before I was unsure what to look for in a track.
I searched several online merchants and the one which had the best reviews was this product from Screwfix.
It was also the best price by far.
Got the product home, all the fixings and runners are included, checked a couple of measurements, drilled a few holes and installed the track.
No pre-heating of soaking in hot water required. I had a couple of corners to go around in a bay window and used a couple of extra fixings for this but my spacing was roughly 500m between fixings and once clipped in, there was no unwanted bend in the track at all.
Whole job took no more than 40 minutes.

Cheap and cheerful
I bought a load of these for a renovation.
The construction and quantity of parts and fixings was without fault.
The only problem was getting them anywhere near straight. We had them in a bath full of hot water for ages (we even changed the water!). We then laid them out on the floor to try and make them flat with no success. We tried a few different times and a bunch of different methods without success.
My advice would be to only use them ion short runs and/or for curved areas.
1* for reliability as i cannot comment.

I bought this in an effort to save money, big mistake! For not a lot more you can buy a ridged track from the most famous name in curtain tracks, which IS straight.
Anyone who manages to straighten this track must have the patience of a saint, either that or they're visually impaired.
Don't waist your time or money. Useful only for a wendy house or if you have a pelmet to hide it and don't mind having to yank the curtains to close them!

Have used this product a number of times at home and at work great for bay windows and better than more expensive branded track. Runners never come away from the track.
