How to install curtains
Installations can vary slightly so be sure to follow the instructions carefully on the sheet provided.
Your curtains will arrive ready to go so it’s a good idea to first check you have all the parts by identifying them on the instruction sheet provided.
Joining your track
Tracks over certain widths will need to be joined together with the joining component supplied.
a. First, slide the joiner piece half way through one length of track.
b. Slide the second length of track over the exposed half of the joiner.
c. Some force may be required to connect the two track segments
Position two brackets approximately 150mm from either end of the track. Fasten these brackets to the wall with screws (appropriate for your wall material), ensuring the brackets are level. Position and fasten any remaining brackets between the end brackets evenly.
NOTE: If you’re fixing your curtains onto plaster board, ensure the brackets are being secured to wall studs.
The very top of the bracket should line up with the drop measurement you provided us in your order.
*We have made a 15mm deduction to allow for the track. This does not affect the fixing point of your bracket.
Fasten the screws in the centre of the side bracket holes. This will allow you to adjust the bracket up and down to achieve the perfect drop.
a. Clip the track into the brackets by securing the back of the track between the metal and the plastic clip.
b. Gently fasten into place with the underside screw.
c. Clip the bracket caps over the brackets.
Position two top fixing clips approximately 150mm from each end of the track.
Each clip should be approximately 80mm to 100mm forward of the window, but this should be assessed on what is most appropriate for each window and room.
Position and fasten any remaining clips between the brackets evenly or into studs if possible.
For double curtains position the top fixing clips for the front track approximately 100mm in front of the rear clips.
Insert the track into the mounted clips by securing the back of the track between the ceiling and the plastic clip. Gently press the track into the bracket until it ‘snaps’ into place. This will happen when the track clips into the small ridge on the bracket.
Connect the hand wand to the dedicated runner on the opening side of your track. For S-fold curtains the dedicated runner will appear different from the rest. For a pinch pleat curtain, reserve the second runner for your wand.
The clip on the wand can sometimes be stiff. If this is the case, gently use pliers to pry it open so it can be attached to the runner.
Hanging your curtains
To hang your S-fold curtain, use the hooks on the back of the curtain to loop through the curtain runners.
To achieve the wave effect with S-fold curtains, make sure the waves are of even depth in front and behind the track. If some waves look ‘shallow’ then gently push that fold back so it creates a deeper wave at the rear.
Start the hanging process from the curtain stacking side, with the edge of the curtain pointing towards the window
To hang your pinch pleat curtain, simply use the hooks on the back of the curtain to loop through the curtain runners.
If you require more runners, simply unscrew the end cap of the track and load in as many as you require.
