Love the luscious look that you get in those fancy up-market boutique store or hotels you stayed at? … Then you’ve probably been drooling over gorgeous S- Fold Sheer Curtains!
S Fold Curtains (also known as ripple fold sheers) get their name from the shape they create. If you took a bird’s eye view of an S fold curtain you would see the soft “S” shape created by the specially designed track. The fabric is not pleated like the traditional pencil pleat or triple pinch pleat as the S fold is not formally pleated but held in place by the track with special poly-carbonate carriers. We call them S-Fold as most people are NOW familiar with this term.
Sleek and subtle to the eye, the S fold Pleated Sheers has a very modern appearance with gently and continuously folded drapery from the beginning to the end. It is common for these sheers to be raised from floor to ceiling and extended wall to wall to create that grand appeal. The perfect shape of the way the fabric is created by the uniquely designed track. No pleats or gathers are needed to create this stylish look.
Dramatic folds and easy operation make our Ripple Fold drapery a great choice for creating a modern look. Perfect for large areas, S-fold sheer curtains can be used to unify multiple windows or large expanses by covering an entire wall. Ripple Fold drapery glides along a low-profile track that seamlessly blends with your wall or ceiling, making it a great solution for corners, floor-to-ceiling windows or other hard to manage spaces.
This style of curtain pleating is suitable for use with hand drawn, corded and motorised curtain tracks. They are very well suited for tracks that need to be curved to accommodate bends when 2 windows at right angles are treated with one continuous curved track.
We can help you decide whether you want a manual or motorised system, a minimal or feature hardware system. S-Fold tracks can be ceiling fixed or wall fixed depending upon the look you want. By ceiling mounting the track you can achieve a dramatic look and help give the impression of a higher ceiling.
A ‘Butt Master Carrier’ can be used to further reduce stack-back. Curtains simply snap on and off the Ripple Fold or S Fold tape.
S-Fold tracks are available in numerous colours with white and anodised silver being the most popular, and can allow for a double track. Whether you love the look of decorative sheer fabrics or a block-out lined fabric, the Ripple Fold track can accommodate either style. If you want the best of both worlds, you can even have a decorative sheer on the front track and block-out lining on the rear. Ripple Fold tracks are so versatile!
