S-Fold Track

S-Fold Track

The latest in modern window hardware.  This S-Fold tracking creates a supremely finished appearance and also has a tighter stack back than regular drapery headings, making better use of your light and view.  

When an S-Fold curtain is in the open position, the stack is approximately 1/3 of the total width of the track. 

Track colours: White, Black, Silver

All brackets are colour matched to the S-Fold track

Mount Type & Brackets

Top Fix = Ceiling mount

Attached to the ceiling, a Top Fix or Ceiling mount bracket will add elegance and height to your room and give you floor to ceiling coverage.  A luxurious finish to your decor.  (See image)

Face Fix = Wall mount

The face fix or Wall mount bracket is attached directly to the top of the architraves or the face of the wall. 

The standard brackets included with your order have the option to extend from 20mm up to 50mm from the back of the bracket to the start of the curtain

There is an extra large bracket available that gives you the option to extend out to 90mm.   

If you are combining your sheer curtains over a blockout roller blind or a plantation shutter, request the extra large bracket in your notes when you order. There is no extra charge for this.

Drop Effects

Curtains can be hung in a number of different ways depending on the effect you are looking to create.

'Breaking' gently over the floor - To add a sense of luxury and grandeur, add additional length to your curtain so that it ‘breaks’ gently over the floor.

'Just touching' the floor - The curtain just touches to the floor for a completed look.

Measure the drop from where you want the top of the track to sit to where you want the curtain to finish. It's that simple.

*Don't take any deductions

Curtain Wands

Opening Types & Wand Control 

Centre Opening - Opening from the centre, you will receive 2 wands with your curtains.  Balance the stack back on both sides of the window for an even look.

Left Hand Stack - The curtain opens to the left hand side.  When in the open position the stack sits on the left hand side as you stand looking at the window.

Right Hand Stack - The curtain opens to the right hand side.  When in the open position the stack sits on the right as you stand looking at the window.

Select your wand size:  Clear acrylic wands - 750mm / 1000mm / 1250mm / 1500mm
