Rope and platforms

A rope rests on two platforms which are both inclined at an angle θ (which you are free to pick). The rope has uniform mass density, and its coefficient of friction with the platforms is 1. The system has left-right symmetry. What is the largest possible fraction of the rope that does not touch the platforms? Express your answer as a decimal between 0 and 1, to 3 places.
