  • pleated curtains

    did a quote for a bay window pair of curtains and a valance. (too the job on and then the customer showed me the heading of the curtains. what i could see was pencil pleat tape the standard type and instead of the cords being pulled up it was left flat. then i noticed a hook was inserted using the box pleat books with a double end and one foot was put in one side then one in the other side so there was a 13cm gap in between pleats then it was perfectly pleated. (has anyone else done this) it was only normal pencil pleat tape but different hooks . my question was this would it be the normal ratio as per gathered on would it be less. ( i have ordered some hooks and i thought i would try it out on some at home to see what happens but if anyone else has used this method could you enlighten me.

    I've never used triple pleat hooks on pencil pleat tape, but I can't see that it wouldn't work. There is deep pleat tape and hooks - the tape has pockets all the way across and the four prong hooks form the pleats.
