Straight Curtain Poles

Our Wrought Iron Curtain Pole Packs contain all the necessary pole, brackets, curtain rings, finials and fixings needed to prepare a standard window for hanging your curtains.

Alternatively, pole and accessories can now be purchased separately to make up a Custom Pole order to suit your individual requirements.

 

Curtain Pole Packs and Custom Pole - the basics

  • Pole is available in 16mm or 25mm diameters
    • 16mm pole is made from 'bright' mild steel solid bar
    • 25mm pole is mild steel tube (solid bar would be too heavy and impractical at this diameter)
  • Brackets are sturdy 'sleeve' style
    • supplied with grub screws and allen key for locking the pole firmly into the brackets
    • allow a pole projection of 60mm from wall to inside edge of the curtain pole
    • come with screws and wall plugs for fixing into masonry or wood (if specialist fixings are required, such as for fixing into plasterboard, you will need to obtain these separately)
  • Curtain Pole Finials
    • finials are the optional decorative endings attached to the ends of the curtain pole
    • are fixed onto the pole ends with locking grubs screws and can be removed and re-attached at any time to allow removal of curtains, etc.
    • 12 styles available, from £12 a pair
  • Curtain Holdbacks
    • holdbacks are the optional decorative wall brackets used to hold back drawn curtains
    • 12 styles available to match Finials available, from £26 a pair
  • Curtain rings
    • pole packs are available with or without rings
    • extra curtain rings can also be bought in the Custom Poles section
  • Available in Matt Black or Polished Steel finishes
    • Matt Black poles and accessories are painted or powder coated for a durable finish
    • Polished Steel poles and accessories are achieved by polishing the metal and coating in a clear lacquer for a pewter-like patina

 

 

Measuring windows for your curtain pole
  • Measure the width of your window, including frame
  • Add on a minimum of 10cm each side to allow for brackets and curtain gather - add more depending on curtain width and thickness
  • Minimum pole length required = window width + 10cm + 10cm
  • Don't forget to take finial length into account if you have restricted space for your pole.
  • Note that approx. 2cm of pole is inserted into each finial for fixing

Buy Custom Pole and Accessories

Pole, brackets, curtain rings, finials and holdbacks are available here to buy individually to make up a custom order

 

Curtain pole

Sold in multiples of 1cm, pole can be ordered in any single uncut length up to 250cm (approx 8 feet). If you require a pole longer than 250cm, you can order two lengths and combine them with a joining bracket. Any pole ordered that is longer than 250cm will automatically be supplied in 2 halves and will therefore require a joining bracket. For example, if you need a 350cm pole, this would require 2 lengths of 175cm pole, 2 standard brackets and 1 joining centre bracket. Theoretically, any pole length can be made up as long as you use a joining bracket between each span of pole.

Brackets

All poles will need at least 2 brackets. Standard brackets have the backplate running vertically and need approx. 100mm of space to fit. They provide good support for poles and are the best choice if space permits. Centre brackets have the backplate running horizontally, taking up less vertical space when fitted above a window frame where space between frame and ceiling can be limited. We would recommend an additional centre bracket for any pole over 200cm for heavier weight curtains.

Brackets are available with narrow sleeves or wide joining sleeves. Standard centre brackets have narrow sleeves for single spans of pole whereas joining centre brackets have wider sleeves to join 2 lengths of pole together.

Where a pole will be fitted into a recess or where one end butts up against a wall, recess brackets can be used.

We will check with you before dispatching if there is any uncertainty about the order. Special instructions or clarifications can also be submitted in the comments box at the checkout stage.

Curtain rings

If you are not sure of the number of rings required (as determined by your curtain maker or supplier) a good guide is to use 1 ring to every 10cm of pole. Round up if this will lead to an odd number so that a pair of curtains will always have the same number of rings each side (e.g. a 250cm pole would require 26 rings not 25). Heavier curtains will glide more easily along the pole with more rings as this spreads the weight more evenly.

Finials and Holdbacks

Finials not only add the finishing flourish to your pole but they also serve to stop the curtain slipping off the end! Finials and Holdbacks can be ordered as single items rather than in pairs to allow flexibility. Some styles are handed so you will have to choose left and/or right hand variants when adding to basket. Handed items are also available in pairs for simplicity.

Please contact us if you have any queries.
