Curtains

Venus is a curtain specialist wholesale fabricator with around 25 years’ experience in producing quality curtains, mainly for the Australian market.

All our curtains are fabricated locally in Australia, all product carefully inspected before packing and shipment, ensuring our wholesale clients only receive absolute top quality of product.

Over recent times, Venus has invested substantially in new machinery and semi automation, we operate state of the art “needle-feed Juki sewing stations” and one of the very few Japanese Kyokutu-Sanki automated pleating machines ($100,000 plus automated sewing station) in Australia.

Expansion of the business has seen our development of “Curtain Solutions”, a combination of quality fabrics, curtain fabrication, curtain tracks cut to length, and all available for dispatch ready to install.

Venus offer a range of fabrics from polyester sheers, to linen/polyester mix, to 100% linens. Only quality fabrics are used. Our machinists have many years of experience, the level of repeat business indicative of the support and confidence from our wide client base.

Our “Curtain Solution” styles as follows:

  • Curtain Sheers

Curtain sheers are used to gently filter light in the room, provide general daytime privacy, and enhance the visual aspect of the window from both inside and out.

Often used in conjunction with roller blinds (for added privacy) or a second solid curtain (main curtain) which can be closed for total privacy and warmth.

The combination in the window area can therefore be “roller blind” and “curtain sheer”, or “curtain sheer” and “main curtain” on separate curtain tracks.

  • Non Sheer Curtains

Non Sheer Curtains are used to provide privacy and warmth, while enhancing the visual aspect of the window from both inside and out. While sheer curtains may be left across the window constantly, the non-sheer curtain may be suitable for opening and closing as required.

Non sheer curtains can include a block out lining component, or have a “lining fabric” curtain added on a second track.

Often used in conjunction with screen fabric roller blinds, where the blinds provide the daytime privacy but excellent light penetration, and the non-sheer curtain provides the evening privacy and warmth.

The combination in the window area can therefore be “sheer roller blind” and “non-sheer curtain”, or “sheer curtain” and “main curtain” on separate curtain tracks.

Curtain tracks can be “top fixed” to the ceiling (one or two tracks close together), or “face fixed” to the wall some distance above the top window architrave and below any top ceiling decorative cornice.

Main Pleating Options

We offer 5 different main pleating options:

  • “Modern Double Pinch Pleat”

Traditional pleating had the pleat depth (forward extension) at 25mm. We have reduced the depth to 20mm so the curtain will take on a more modern look and also not protrude too far forward on the tracks. (This is of substantial benefit when a second curtain track is used)

Curtain fullness is 1.8x – 2.0x

  • “Modern Triple Pinch Pleat”

Traditional pleating had the pleat depth here also at 25mm. We have reduced the depth to 20mm so the curtain will take on a more modern look and also not protrude too far forward on the tracks. (This is also of substantial benefit when a second curtain track is used)

Curtain fullness is 2.2x – 2.4x

  • “S-Wave Pleating”

We note several online websites offering only 1.6x fullness in their S-Wave curtain quoting.

Venus offer a minimum of 1.8x fullness in our fabrication calculations. You can be assured the overall quality of our S-Wave curtains is first class….

S-Wave always fits under the track, extending forward and back in the wave approximately 40mm each side of track centre (total wave approximately 80mm)

Curtain fullness is 1.8x – 2.0x

  • “Knife Pleat Heading”

This is a “flat curtain heading”, ideal for situations where there may be two curtain tracks and the back track (nearest window) with a flat looking pleat, means the front track does not protrude into the room more than absolutely necessary.

Curtain fullness is 1.8x – 2.0x

  • “Inverted Box Pleat”

This is a “tidy flat looking curtain heading”, where the depth of track is also reduced (compared with S-Wave for example), also ideal for situations where there may be two curtain tracks and the back track or the front track does not protrude into the room more than absolutely necessary, when this pleating is used.

Curtain fullness is 1.8x – 2.0x
