Fashion Rodding

Bendable Hook and Loop Valance Solution

Fashion Rodding is a bendable, aluminum I-Beam with hook fastening tape incorporated on the face. It can be used for valances, stationary curtain panels, and stretch panels. Fashion Rodding is bendable by hand to form any size returns and to fit into bay and bow windows. Fashion Rodding is user friendly as it may be bent many times without breaking. It can be cut with a hacksaw or large tin snips. Fashion Rodding can be ceiling mounted, wall mounted, or attached to a vertical track using extension plates for a one step installation.

Any valance or curtain panel or Pencil Pleat drape with soft loop fastening tape can be attached to the face of the rodding. In addition to flat soft loop tape, Albert's Window Fashions offers a 3" OR 2" wide Pencil Pleat Tape with soft loop backing.

Curtain panels can be attached to the backside with a valance on the front side . . . or two part valances can be attached.

Fashion Rodding is available in lengths up to 8’9" (105") to meet UPS shipping size limits. It can be easily spliced by butting the two pieces of rodding together and placing an extra bracket on the splice. When the window treatment is in place, the splice is completely covered.
