Love the luxe look of that hotel room you stayed at? Then you’ve probably been drooling over gorgeous S- Track Curtains!
S- Track curtains are getting their name from the shape they create. If you took a bird’s eye view of an S-Track curtain, you would see the soft “S” shape created by the specially designed track. The fabric of an S-fold is not formally pleated but held in place by the track with special polycarbonate carriers. We call them Ripple Fold as most people are familiar with this term.
Sleek and subtle to the eye, the Ripple fold Pleated Curtain has a very modern appearance with gently and continuously folded drapery from the beginning to the end. The soft ‘s’ shape of 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 an excellent choice for creating a modern look. Perfect for large areas, Ripple Fold drapery can be used to unify multiple windows or large expenses 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.
Folds are identically beautiful from inside the room or outside the building presenting an architectural advantage. Headings, suspended under the track, cannot tip or sag. They are always perfectly positioned and spaced.
Once the curtains have been ironed, they will quickly fall into neat folds. We create this style with the use of a particular stiffened nylon tape which is sewn onto the curtain fabric to maintain the folds.
Soft ripple-like folds flow smoothly from one end of the track to the other. The effect is gently tailored – suitable for either commercial or residential installation. Master carriers that butt together and carriers that swivel eliminate "flat" drapery areas.
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 two 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. Ripple 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.
This also helps block the light bleeding onto the ceiling from the window - known as the “halo effect” - (excellent for home theatres!)
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.
Ripple 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!
The fabric you choose is probably the most important part of the curtain decision because it is the most noticeable element. Colour, pattern, texture and composition all combine to produce the right effect.
We can guide you in selecting the correct fabric for your Ripple Fold curtains. Factors we consider include the fabric composition (some fabrics are too “stiff” for Ripple Fold pleating), pattern repeat, the fullness required, the stack-back required, and the height and position that the curtain will be hung from.
If you are building a new home, we can liaise with your architect at the planning stage to ensure that your new Ripple Fold curtains are accommodated to maximise their aesthetic beauty.
So spoil yourself with a holiday at home every day by installing beautiful Ripple Fold curtains!
