Pleated curtain styles to use on curtain tracks

Posted by on

Since we often get questions about what kind of curtains go on our tracks that use the eyelet carriers, we thought we'd put some pictures of various styles in a blog post. The curtain tracks with the ball bearing carriers or eyelet carriers (the style of carrier that doesn't have a hook hanging from it) is primarily used for pleated draperies.

Pleated draperies don't just come in the Pinch pleated traditional style any more.

There is also the Euro or English pleat

All of the pleated styles have something in common. They need pin hooks inserted behind each pleat to insert into the hole or eyelet on the carriers that run on the track.

The top of the inserted pin hook will be below the top of the drapery, so the carriers are completely covered. On the 9400 series tracks (94003 wall mount and 94004 ceiling mount), the pins can be inserted lower on the drapery to cover the track when the drapery is closed.

On the 9600 track and Deco track, the top of the drapery needs to remain just below the track, exposing the track even when closed.

When using baton draw sets, master carriers are typically used. The master carriers have arms on them to allow the flat leading edges of the panels to overlap on a split draw. A pin hook is put behind the flat leading edge of the drapery panel and then inserted into the first hole on the master carrier arm. The pin hook behind the first pleat is inserted into the second hole on the arm. Batons or wands can also be attached to the bottom of these masters. On cord draw tracks, the cord runs through the master carriers controlling the operation of the drapery.
