  • covered tracks

    Please help me! An interior designer wants to have pinch pleat curtains on a track and she wants the track covered with the fabric and the pinches hanging in front of it. I think it's called lathe and fascia. Can anyone tell me how to assemble it and does any brand of track work better with it?

    Thanks, Anne

    Hi Anne,

    Welcome to the forum

    I think what your interior designer is referring to is an upholsterd lathe fascia with attached track.

    I use them alot and they are pretty effective, even if some may find them ugly, they do work well.

    See the topic post below, there are a couple of photos of the ones I have recently completed

    Hope that helps

      Thanks Tam,

      I presume there's no wadding on the front piece, and do you normally use 6mm mdf?

      Thanks, Anne

        No wadding is used , 3mm ply is fine to use for the front section. It only needs to be thin and tacked to the front of a pelmet board.

        Full instructions can be found in the Encyclopedia of Curtains from Merrick and Day
