In this video Michael demonstrates the 75mm S-Fold heading tape used to ensure the curtain is well structured, delivering a gentle S-shaped curve that holds its form all the way from the top to the bottom of the curtain. He explains that our curtains are made to 100% fullness, meaning that the fabric width is 2 x the width of the track giving volume and depth to the fabric when hung and that all of our curtains are made in a continuous fashion, so that the curtain is made from one piece of fabric leaving no joins or panels. Michael then gives an overview of the various opening options available.
Michael demonstrates the 3 track styles available for your Curtains. Select from the Standard track, Curved track or the more designer Round track. Understand the difference between a ceiling mounted sheer and a wall mounted sheer and which tracks to use for each.
Michael explains what you need to do when measuring your windows for a Wall mounted curtain. He explains the use of the standard brackets and how they can be adjusted to come over the top of an architrave as well as the option to select extension brackets if you are coming over the top of a roller blind or a greater obstruction to ensure your curtains hang perfectly every time.
Michael takes you through all you need to know when it comes to measuring your windows for either a sheer curtain or a blockout curtain for a Ceiling mount, including Cornices.
Michael shows you how to install your curtain tracks for a wall mount. He describes the two types of brackets available - the standard bracket and the extension bracket. Use a stud finder to locate as much timber as possible to install your brackets. Ensure your brackets are evenly spaced and use a string line to make sure they are level. Then simply present your track to the brackets and clip them into place. It's that easy!
Michael describes the two track options available for ceiling mounted curtains. He shows you how to attach the brackets to the track when preparing to install your curtain tracks into the ceiling. Ceiling mounts will either be installed into timber or more commonly into plaster. Michael demonstrates how easy it is to use a hollow wall anchor to securely attach your track to the ceiling if mounting into plaster.
Now that your track is installed, Michael shows you how easy it is to hang your S-fold curtain. Start by attaching your wand to the track, ensuring you leave the first runner free. Then attach the hooks provided onto your curtain tape. Now clip the hooks into the runners on the curtain track. Voila, you are finished!
