Why does our PVC Pelmet benefit Curtainsiders?Our pelmet fits securely to the top and bottom of the curtain mechanism, and have a number of features. These features include:

Alongside this, as the rollers are shielded it means that they don’t require any additional maintenance to the track to ensure a smooth operation of the curtain.
