A 50mm diameter (2 inch) wrapped and tracked electric motorised curtain pole set complete with stainless steel or brushed bronze wall brackets, gliders and Mini Disc finials.

The electric curtain pole is powered by a discreet & quiet Somfy Motor, allowing you to operate your curtains using your chosen controls. Ideal for hard to reach or heavy curtains where hand drawing is not practical. How you control your curtains can include a remote or wall switch, smartphone/tablet, Amazon Alexa, Google Home or your preferred home automation system.

The motorised curtain track is cleverly hidden behind the curtain pole, and is strong enough to support the weight of thick, heavy, lined and interlined curtains, as used by the top end interior design industry. The track is slightly curved back to the wall where the motor sits, completely hiding the motor without interfering with the curtain pleats. The wooden curtain pole is beautifully hand wrapped in embossed 'flint' dark blue finish.

The discrete yet heavy duty brackets are designed so no screws are visible, and the supplied curtain track gliders run smoothly along the curtain track.  We supply standard gliders or ripple (wave) heading gliders, depending on your curtain.

Choose from 3 motor types (hard wired or battery) depending on how you want to power and operate your curtains. The reliable Somfy motors have a 5 year warranty for peace of mind.

General

We do not have a showroom, but see our 'Find a Designer' section for details of designers or curtain makers close to you who have our product sampling. Please note that not all of our recommended designers have showrooms, so it is advisable to call first to make an appointment.

Alternatively, you can order samples of all our products online here.

The product images on our site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display will reflect the actual colour of the products. We strongly advise that if colour matching is important, you buy the samples offered for sale on our website.  

Although we have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, all sizes, weights, colours, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on our site have a 5% tolerance.  

PRODUCT INFO

Please see our Measuring Guide.

You will have everything you need in the pole set you purchase, but if your curtains are heavy weight (i.e. very long, lined, interlined or blackout curtains) and you are purchasing a 19mm or 30mm diameter pole set, we recommend you purchase our support arms here which attach to your brackets to give a stronger fixing.

If in doubt please contact us  to discuss requirements and we can steer you to the correct product online for your needs. 

Architrave brackets have elongated fixing plates to give you a larger surface area to fix to the wall for a stronger fixing, reccommended for heavy curtains or weak fixing points. Architrave brackets are supplied automatically with the 50mm pole sets, but not the 19mm or 30mm pole sets. If you want them on the 19mm or 30mm pole sets you can order these support arms which upgrade the standard brackets into architrave brackets.

If you have selected rings in your pole set, we supply one for every 10cm of pole rounded up to an even number (i.e. a 150cm pole set will have 16 rings). If additional rings are required you can order these here

A step by step guide for how to fit your curtain pole will be supplied with your pole set. You can also view fitting instrctions here.

We offer a free cut to size service so you don't need to cut the poles yourselves. You can specify this in the product page before you add your pole to the shopping cart.

However if you would prefer to cut them yourselves, here's how you can do so:

Make sure your pole is secure, ideally using a clamp to hold it in place. For best results use a bench mounted saw for a smooth and straight cut. If you do not have access to one then you can use a hack saw for metal poles, or a hand saw for wooden poles.

Please note the motorised poles cannot be cut down once they are made so the correct size must be specified at the ordering stage.

We have put together a useful guidehere  to keep your pole looking in tip top form.

Not at the moment. All our poles are supplied straight so not suitable for bay windows

Our 50mm diameter tracked poles can by made in lengths of up to 10m, and can have as many brackets as required to provide incredibly strong support. They work very well with heavy curtains as the track runners give you a smooth glide, making them easy to open and close. For the ultimate ease of use, try our motorised curtain poles which are operated with the push of a button.

If you don't want a tracked pole, then stainless steel in 30mm and 50mm diameter is the next best option, and can be made in lengths up to 4.8m. These are suitable to use with curtain rings or eyelets.

Any 50mm wooden pole or bronze pole with rings is also suitable in lengths up to 4m.

We no longer offer a cording service. We have found that the new cord safety legislation, combined with windows getting increasingly wider, has resulted in cording becoming impractical and troublesome for the user, with excessive friction, sagging cords, and difficulty using the cords due to the required use of tension pullies combined with very short lengths of cord. 

We recommend you try a beautifully simple to operate 'tracked only' pole (and use a draw rod  if the fabric is delicate), or our motorised curtain poles which are operated with the push of a button.
