What is thermal lining?
Thermal lining is an acrylic coating placed onto the back of the curtain fabric. Designed for New Zealand conditions, the thermal qualities help keep your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

This is separate lining that is created by attaching fabric to the back of the curtain. It has similar benefits to Thermal Lining but creates a softer curtain.

What is a curtain heading?
Curtain heading refers to the style of pleat of finish (for example tab or eyelet) at the top of the curtain.

What is a pencil pleat curtain?
This refers to the style of gathering at the top of the curtain. A tape is used to create folds that are gathered closely together to resemble a row of pencils laid side by side. They are created by pulling cords on the tape and knotting the cords off at each end to secure the pleats in place. They can be used on curtain rods or tracks. The pencil pleat curtain is our most popular heading style as it allows you to adjust the gathers to the fullness you prefer, and gives more flexibility when selecting the size for your window.

Can I order a different heading type?
Pencil Pleat is the only heading type available for standard readymades and Ezi Size curtains.

Do you have a sheer to suit the drop of my window?
Some sheers are adjustable. You can tear off or cut to length. The longest drop available is 200cm. Additional sizes are not available through the EZISIZE service.

How do you hang sheers?
You can hang them on a wire – carefully slit at each end of the tape and thread the wire through. Or you can hang them from a track. (You will also need to purchase hooks to do this).
NB. It is important that the cords at one end are securely tied off before pulling cords from the other end.

How much should your track extend out from each side of the window?
In most cases 20cm on either side of the window. However, for larger curtains you might want to consider extending this to 30cm on either side.

Can I wash these curtains?
Yes but before cleaning please refer to the care instructions that are sewn on to each curtain.
