Pencil Pleat Tapes
Narrowtex manufactures an extensive range of pencil pleat curtain tapes, which are simple and versatile headings. Pencil pleats form timeless traditional designs and is the standard heading for printed, plain and most fabric textures. Pencil pleats can be loose or tight and the fullness can be adjusted for preference. Due to the diverse range of pencil headings, the different construction designs produce varying pleating effects …

Corded pocket tapes
o The draw cord pass in and out of the fabric of the tape between the pleats or pass through specially made ‘tubes’ so that the individual pleats are separated and locked into position by a flat section. This design is often referred to as a ‘D’ pleat and is the classic pencil pleat design.

Reversible or double sided tapes
o The standard reversible or double sided pencil pleat is designed so that the draw cords and pockets run on both sides of the tape and these tapes pleat with the popular ‘S’ style pencil pleat. Reversible ‘S’ pleat tapes have a complete variable fullness.

Single sided tapes
o Single sided tapes will typically have the pockets on just one side of the tape so care must be taken to ensure that the tape is sewn on with the pockets away from the fabric.

Woven pocket tapes
o These have high quality woven pockets with warp and weft yarns woven together to form strong hook pockets that support the hooks firmly, they don’t sag and curtains will hang at consistent length. By encasing the draw cords of pencil pleat tapes in specially constructed tubes set in the base fabric of the tape the cords remain at the back of the pleat. The individual pleats then stand forward of the base fabric in the classic ‘D’ pleat.

Narrow to ultra-deep headings
o The full range of tapes include widths from the 18mm dainty pleat tape up to the 150mm multi pleat tape

Rods or tracks : use with tracks or rods
Fabric type : suitable for all fabric types
Fabric estimation : multiply the track width by 2 – 2.5 times
