Most Cords are made to order.
These extended or Drop Lengths, are not set in stone, and due to the nature of the cords, they are somewhat flexible. The longer you extend them out…the more stretched out the cord looks. And with these cords they are used for cosmetic effect…ie to make the job look nice. So some people like to work on a 2 to 2.5 time extension as they feel this give a nicer cosmetic effect. This of course is a matter of personal opinion, and ultimately it is up to the installer and client to determine what is best for the particular situation. But as a general rule in our opinion we say 3:1 ratio is about right.
This type of cord is generally considered non self retracting.
In fact in these applications you actually don't want the cords to self retract. you want the cord to sit at the designated height. You can stretch these cords out, and they will generally sit at the stretched length.
In many of these applications these curly power cords are fitted off using a stainless steel wire through the centre of the cords which attaches to the light fixture or the pendant outlet.
Note: It is important to not use uncoated wire as this may have an abrasive effect on the cords!
