Curtain Poles

Types of Curtain Poles

When choosing a pole for your curtains, you need to firstly bear in mind the weight and style of your curtains as well as the shape of your windows. Light weight curtains can fit onto any diameter curtain pole but are generally better suited to thin poles with a diameter of 19mm or below. 28mm diameter poles are ideal for supporting most medium to heavy weight curtains, 35mm diameters for heavier fabrics and for very large full length curtains with heavy fabric and interlining we supply poles with diameters of up to 50mm for metal poles and 63mm for wood.

Standard Metal and Wooden Poles

Our complete range includes sets made from metal, wood or one of the many stylish wood effects. These popular poles are available in a large selection of colours and finishes, ensuring that there is something to suit all types of homes and interior design schemes.

Bay Window Poles Sets

Our best selling bay window poles are usually supplied as a complete kit, with the special corner joints, passing rings and brackets included. These specialised fittings have been designed to allow the curtains to operate normally in the bay window. Conventional poles cannot be used for bay windows as they will not be able to fit around the corners of the bay. Please visit our complete range of curtain poles for bay windows.

Eyelet Poles

Poles for eyelet and tab top curtains are available in an assortment of colour finishes which include stylish finials to enhance the window treatment. Eyelet curtain poles are provided without curtain rings as the eyelets or tabs of the curtain heading is threaded through or onto the pole. We recommend that you match the finish of the curtain pole with the colour of the curtain eyelet for a harmonious look. Please browse our comprehensive range of curtain poles for eyelet curtains.

Double Poles

Often windows are overlooked or have an unattractive view such as the neighbours fence, also certain rooms such as bedrooms or bathrooms require privacy during the day. Double poles are the modern solution to net curtains as the main curtains are fitted to a larger outer pole for use at night and sheer or voile curtains are fitted to a lighter weight pole and remain closed during the day. Please view our complete range of double curtain poles.

Corded Poles

Ideal for silk or light coloured curtains where there is risk of the curtains becoming marked from constant handling. A corded systems is also often the only solution for high windows such as landing windows or for tall windows where operating the curtains may be difficult.

Extra Long Rails

Metal poles will be inherently stronger than wooden ones and are supplied with extra brackets to join the poles and for added support. If you wish to use a wooden rail, then make sure it has a diameter that is strong enough to support your curtains over a wide expanse. Extra long wooden poles are supplied with a screw fiiting to join the poles together as well as extra brackets. Visit our range of extra long curtain fixings here.
