Now Stocking: Lower Friction 2mm Cord

416 cord

The breaking strain (or ultimate tensile strength) of a curtain cord is rarely tested in a finished installation. The most important concern is friction, which is affected mainly by the width, material and plait count of a cord. Our local cord supplier, Whittam Ropes, are now manufacturing their 416 type 8-plait curtain cord without the polyethylene core to reduce friction in curtain operation.
