Q: Why are my panels so hard to move?

A: Panels that are hinged together usually move easier that individual panels. If your panels are hinged together in pairs, a cleaning of the track and lubrication of the trolley wheel bearings will typically keep them moving smoothly (as long as they’re not dragging the floor). If your panels are individual (no hinges) they typically have to negotiate through various intersections in the overhead track to get between their storage pocket and their "set-up" location. These intersections are the major cause of panel movement problems. We can clean, adjust and lubricate most intersections to improve panel movement. Some tracks have true 90 degree corners in the track that are notorious for problems. If the 90 degree intersections are damaged they might need to be replaced.
