An Introduction to Wave Curtains
Silent Gliss introduced the unique ‘wave’ curtain heading system that turns traditional curtains into a striking modern design statement. As an alternative to traditional curtain headings such as pencil pleat, pinch pleat or goblet, the wave system offers a more contemporary, neat and stylish curtain presentation. The finished appearance is similar to that of eyelet curtains but the fabric hangs directly below the track in a neat and uniform style.
The ‘wave’ effect is created through combining a specially designed heading tape and Wave glider-cord to get a soft and simple continuous wave effect. When opened the curtains stack back neatly and straight and when closed the fabric hangs in a smooth continuous wave effect.
Please view our YouTube video that explains this in more detail.
As well as being able to supply all the Silent Gliss wave curtain fabrics, we can now offer wave curtains made from all the main fabric brands, including the best selling wave fabrics from Harlequin, Romo, Clarke & Clarke, Sanderson and many many more. If you have found a fabric from any of the main brands, give us a call and we can talk you though the options and quote on both the track and the curtains.
