Installation Course at A Class Draperies and Interiors Ltd.


Over the years I have found that the biggest challenge is not that of making the panels or the swags but how to get them installed professionally. There are so many variables at the client’s premises and so little resources available locally that installation may sometimes become a nightmare. Now it is best to decide on what tools, rods, brackets and techniques to use at installation before fabricating the window treatment. This often requires a lot of foresight and creativity but it avoids costly mistakes or tacky installations. In this modern era of floor-to-ceiling glass (curtain wall construction) there is very little space to install a traverse bracket mounting boards. Knowing where to source supplies can enhance your products and increase your profits.

This intense five-day course is designed to expose you to tools and techniques based on years of experience and research.  You will be conducting actual installations and will be exposed to many time saving tricks and tips.
