Accordia-Fold is a trademark name for the accordion style pleating of drapery. Unlike Ripple-Fold, the spacing of the fabric is a direct result of the sewn in pleats which are sharp and crisp compared to any other style of drapery. Used primarily in Healthcare applications,

Accordia-Fold draperies stack tighter when open but tend to leak light at the edges so are not the best choice for full blackout applications. Additionally, due to the way they hang below the track, a full top treatment is required if complete room darkening is desired. A main advantage of Accordia-Fold draperies is their ability to break-away from the tracking system much easier than a standard pin or grommet hung drapery system, making this style of drapery a preferred choice for mental health and rehabilitation facilities. 



Straight needled with nylon snap tape. Fullness determined by snap tape and pleat depth. Specify 220%, 200%, 180% or 160%.



Standard: Face fabric is double turned at top. Note: Face fabric is exposed at back top of drapery for 4”.
