Pencil Pleat

If you have selected curtains with Pencil pleats, at the top by the curtain heading on either side you will find 3 loose cords. You will need to draw up the cords to finish the curtains.

DO NOT PULL STRAIGHT AWAY, READ INSTRUCTIONS BELOW:
  • Securely knot together the 3 cords on the leading edge (where the two curtains meet).
  • From the opposite side, pull the 3 cords together at the same time to gather the curtain into even pleats until the required width has been reached.
  • Tie off the cords but do not cut off any excess, as the curtain will need to be un-gathered for cleaning. The loose cords can easily be tucked away neatly behind the heading tape.
  • Decide which row of hook pockets to use. To conceal the track, use the bottom row of the pockets and to expose the track/pole use the top row.
  • Insert a hook at each end of the heading tape, and then approximately 10cm apart across the width of each curtain.

Pinch Pleat

Pinch Pleat
  • These curtains will arrive at the correct width, so all you need to do is simply insert your pin hooks into the heading.
  • If the curtains are to be hung from a pole, insert the pin hooks just below the top of the curtain.
  • If the curtains are to be hung from a track and it is to be hidden, then insert the hooks at a lower level.
  • The pin hooks should be inserted into the vertical seam at the back of the curtain, at the required height.

Eyelet and tab top
