How do you calculate Ripplefold curtains? A more precise way to figure widths needed is to take the rod width and divide by the carrier spacing. This equals the number of carriers needed. Multiply that number by 4.25 (space between snaps) for total number of inches needed. Add for joins and side hems, then divide by the width of your fabric.

What is a Ripplefold curtain? A Ripplefold drape is a single continuous panel produced with snaps sewed into the top hem. The ‘pleat’ in this drape actually comes from the way the snaps connect with the hardware. As the ripplefold drape is snapped into the hardware it creates an undulating wave pattern.

What is a wave drape? Wave curtains are fitted to a slim, discreet curtain track so they are suitable for all standard sized windows. Because they have a relaxed fold, they help to create a contemporary look in any home. They work particularly well in large open-plan living rooms and kitchen-diners, although they look great anywhere.

## How do you calculate Ripplefold curtains? – Additional Questions

### How do wave curtain tracks work?

Wave curtains use a modern alternative to a curtain heading, guiding the curtains along special wave curtain tracks to create a uniform, ripple effect. When pulled back, wave curtains avoid the bunched look that you get with regular curtain poles or tracks.

### Can wave curtains be lined?

Layering is also a popular option with a wave voile on the back track and a standard lined or blackout lined wave curtain on the front track. Some fabrics do however hold the wave shape better than others. Please watch our YouTube video for advice on fabric suitability for wave curtains.

### How many widths do you need for wave curtains?

On a 60mm wave the hook spacing option is either 10 or 12. 12 gives the fullest curtain width. On an 80mm wave the hook spacing options are 14 or 16, with 16 giving the fullest curtain. Please see the below diagram that shows you the different options and curtain fullness for each option.
