Here are some things to consider when shopping for a manual or motorized drapery system:

Weight of the Fabric in Ounces:
If the weight is not advertised, find out what it is before purchasing. This is a huge consideration and will tell you the quality of the fabric. Ask for a swatch of the fabric before ordering something custom.

Remote System:
IR vs RF

Warranty of the Track:
If you are ordering a custom drape system you will need a quality motorized track system to handle the weight of the fabric. The inexpensive motorized track systems will not hold up over time for heavier drapes.

Brand of the Track:
If you are purchasing a motorized custom curtain, look for a brand name track to drive the system. Brands like Makita and ADC are excellent brands and will have the power in the motor to drive the weight of the drapes.

Power of the Motor:
Make sure the motor will handle the weight of the drapes. A qualified reseller will be able to recommend an appropriate system given the weight of the drapes.

Is the track bendable for Curves?
This obviously does not always apply, but you can do some nice things with bendable track.

Fullness of the drape:
the number of "folds" (for lack of a better word) in the drape. There is typically 0%/Flat, 50% and 100% fullness available.

Stack Back:
This tells you how much room you will need on the sides of the drapes. It will be a function of the weight and fullness of the fabric selected.

Color Options

Price Point (of course)

How Loud is the motor?
