Drapery Style

Curtain Rod With Pinch-Pleat and Ripplefold Drapery

Pinch-Pleat Or Ripplefold: This image of a double heavy-duty curtain rod shows a Ripplefold style drapery on the front rod with a Pinch-Pleat sheer on the rear rod. If your drapery attaches with pins, it's most likely a Pinch-Pleat. If your drapery attaches with snaps, it’s most likely a Ripplefold.

Ripplefold is a specialized drapery style. If you're unfamiliar with Ripplefold, don’t buy a rod configured for Ripplefold draperies before consulting with your drapery maker.

Cord Drop

Curtain Rod And Traverse Rod Cord Drop

The Cord Drop size tells us how long to make your control cord.

If you’re mounting your rod really high, you’ll want a long control cord that’s easy to reach.

If your household has young children or pets, you may want a very small cord drop that you have to reach up to operate.

  • "I Don't Want A Control Cord, I Want To Hand Or Baton Draw My Curtains, But I Don’t See That Option."

Most Heavy-Duty Curtain Rods and Decorative Traverse Rods will have a hand or baton draw option, but if the rod you’re interested in doesn’t have a no-cord option displayed, it’s not a problem.

Any rod can be made without the control cords, just let us know when placing your order or, simply remove the control cord yourself by untying it from the master carrier.
