Known for their versatility in light control, vertical drapes offer a cost-effective window treatment option for your home.
Vertical Drapes are a popular choice for sliding doors and other large spans of glass. Simply tilt the blades to control how much light enters a room or draw back completely for an unobstructed view. Modern variations of Vertical Drapes include the option to fully sew in the bottom weights in lieu of chained weight, and operation via wand instead of cords. We offer a beautiful selection of fabrics that feature opaques in smooth and textured finishes that can be viewed here. Available in multiple configurations to suit varying window styles, Vertical Drapes offer flexibility and convenience to the homeowner.
Flexibility to suit your windows and doors
Available as right or left stacking for single direction sliding doors and windows, centre stacking for bi-directional sliding windows, or centre split stacking.
Careful attention in every detail
Blades are machine stitched using cotton thread (not nylon), the superior choice in strength for materials that are frequently exposed to direct sunlight. Choose from chained weights for that traditional look, open chainless weights for a more economical solution, or fully sewn in weights for a premium finish.
Wands are constructed from fibreglass, and unlike PVC wands, are resistant to warping from temperature heat. Their smooth, sleek profile make them a popular modern choice for operating vertical drapes.
Cords are pre-stretched to ensure tautness from continuous use over time. Cord operated vertical drapes offer a convenient alternative to wand operation where window access is limited.
Superior track construction
Constructed from extruded aluminium, the sleek profile of the track features an anodised tilt rod that evenly guides the wheel bearing carriages, connected by stainless steel spacer links. A simple hook attaches the blades to the track, allowing for easy removal should the fabric require deep cleaning. End caps are screwed, not held together with thrust washers, and ensure longevity of operation.
Frequently Asked Questions
Whilst vertical drapes are available in a range of opaques, they do let in a little bit of light. A small slither of light will be visible between each individual blade of fabric, as well as a small gap of light (approximately 10mm) between the windowsill and bottom of the fabric. Vertical drapes are still very well suited to bedrooms, for complete room darkening please speak to one of our consultants.
Vertical drapes are safe for little children when installed with chainless weights. All cord operated tracks are retained. For maximum safety, your vertical drapes can be completely chainless when they are operated by wand.
