Drapery Width Guildlines

Drapery Finished Width 
• Finished width = rod width + overlap + returns
Overlap 
• The part of the drapery panel which rides the master carrier and overlaps the other drapery panel in the center when the drapes are closed • A general rule is to allow 21⁄2"–31⁄2" per drapery panel on a two–way draw traverse rod • Overlap allowance not needed for one–way draw or shirred pocket installation • Consult workroom for specific guidelines
Returns
• The amount of drapery that covers the distance from the face of the rod to the wall • A general rule is to add 1⁄2" to projection to avoid fabric binding • Exact return distances are given for each Graber® traverse rod
Fullness
• Fullness defines the amount of fabric that is pleated or shirred for a given drapery finished width. • Treatment fullness can be expressed as a percentage (e.g. 100%) or a ratio (e.g. 2 to 1) • Fabric weight and personal preference determine fullness • Consult workroom for specific guidelines
Projection
• Distance from the wall to the front of the rod
Clearance
• Distance from the wall to the back side of the rod
