For a wave style heading using our ripple gliders, then our tracked poles are a must. For this heading, we supply the tracked pole complete with an even number of special gliders linked together with cord, which hold the flat curtain panels in gentle waves/ripples, even when the curtain is closed. Just choose this option under 'gliders' when ordering your tracked pole.
If you want to achieve a similar look, but on a standard curtain pole, you can either use our pleating rings, where our snap rivets hold the fabric in a single pleat, or ask your curtain maker to create a 'mock wave' heading by using a flat curtain panel and hooking 2 curtain hooks into each ring eye, and dressing the fabric forward then back into a 'wave' effect.
Due to our wide range of bracketry, many of our curtain poles can be used for extra long spans. Our 30mm and 50mm stainless steel and 30mm and 50mm brushed bronze poles are all available in 300cm lengths in a single piece, so you can achieve a 6m span using passing rings and passing brackets.
If you want an even longer span, we recommend our wrapped and tracked poles, where we can supply the pole in 3m lengths in one piece, but the track can be supplied in 5m lengths and inserted into 3 or 4 joined poles onsite to achieve up to 10m long spans.
Passing Flush Connector brackets will be needed at every pole join (poles are supplied spigotted, which slot neatly inside these brackets) and overclip brackets will also be needed in the centre of each pole length at a minimum of every 200cm to ensure the pole doesn't bow.
The choice is yours!
All of our curtain poles are available with a recess bracket option – in stainless steel or brushed bronze for 19mm, 30mm and 50mm diameter curtain poles. The 19mm recess bracket is also available in black.
Our flush ceiling fix pole mentioned earlier is also available with recess brackets.

Add a minimum of 15cm either side, preferably more, but for full curtains or wide windows allow at least 25cm if you have the room, excluding finials (decorative pole ends).
