CURTAIN HEADING

Product Details
(1) Pinch pleated headings are our most popular heading and can be used on curtains, valances and sheers on all types of tracking. It results in a very uniform curtain folds as opposed to the unstructured look of a gathered or pocket heading.
(2) Twin pleating is a simple variation of the pinch pleat.
(3) Pocket heading is almost exclusively used for sheers on conduit rods.
(4) Gathered headings give a less formal look.
(5) Eyelets provide a contemporary look and are often used with a room darkening blind behind. Like all curtain tracks brackets are required at regular intervals, however an eyelet curtain cannot pass over a bracket. Therefore the following maximum widths apply:

Maximum widths are: CO 3800mm
One Way 2000mm

Any greater widths than these and the pole will bow even if no curtain is hanging on them.
The eyelets are plastic and available in GOLD, SILVER, and DARK BROWN must be marked in your notes when ordering. Double Eyelet tracks are NOT available.
(6) Inverted Pleats, also known as Inverted “Box” Pleats can be used in place of a pinch pleat curtain. The only drawback on the inverted pleat is that they work best when the curtain sits below the track. Otherwise they look great as a static sheer.



(7) Roll Pleat is a contemporary, new look that creates a slim clean curtain.
(8) Knife Pleat is a sharply creased narrow pleat, usually one of a series folded in the same direction.

STACKING

Indicate if the curtains are a pair (CO) or a single curtain stacking to the left (L) or to the right (R).

FIXED

To know how the track is to be fitted, for face fix indicate by an (F), top fix into the ceiling (T) or reveal fit (R).

CORD SIDE

Cords can be either Left or Right on tracks up to 6m. On tracks over 6m, tracks must be in two pieces and corded separately. This creates a CO track with both Left and Right cords, with each cord operating one side of a CO curtain. This can be done on request for smaller widths as well. Enter the cord side as LR. One-way track maximum width is 6m

MEASURING CURTAIN WIDTHS AND DROPS

The width of the curtain is largely dependant on the layout of the window, the stack back required and whether a single or double track is required.
The drop or height of a curtain measured is determined by the track type being used and again the layout of the window. Existing Tracks and Pelmets can also affect the way a drop needs to be measured.

RETURNS

Most curtains will have returns. A return is the distance between the last pleat and the end of the curtain. This in effect creates a flap which is folded back (returned) to the wall at the end of the track to enable the last pleat to hang correctly and to reduce light coming around the side of the curtain.

   

The leading edge or moving side of the curtains will have similar flaps which create an overlap and underlap when the curtains are closed. As shown in the image above.
