The University’s Tarble Arts building has drapery that covers a glass wall that is 53 feet 7 inches. The motorized drapery track assembly does not function properly causing the trolley units to hang up and put stress on the drapery material. The curved sections of the track are causing the majority of stress on the system. The University is seeking proposals from qualified suppliers to:

Review the current installation and propose a solution, or solutions, to eliminate the problems experienced at this time with the motorized drapery track system. The proposal shall include all information necessary to explain the solutions and recommendations and clearly define the reasons and actions required to achieve them. The proposal shall consider, but shall not be limited to, replacing the existing motorized track system; replacing the existing drapery; re-aligning the existing track; replacing the trolley hangers; replacing the drapery hanging hardware; and adjusting the controls of the existing motorized system.
