At Walcot House, we offer extra long curtain poles and long tracked poles to suit many situations such as bifold doors, wide patio doors/french windows or extra wide windows.
Many of our standard pole sets come in spans up to 400cm or 480cm, or, if you order by component, up to 12m long!
Longer curtain pole spans (up to 1200cm / 12m) can be achieved using passing brackets and passing rings
with multiple pole joins, or BY USING our tracked wrapped poles with overclip brackets and 2 x 6m length tracks
which your fitter can insert into the poles on site.
You can build your own pole using our components section, but you might want to consult one of our recommended designers or one of our team for more advice for spans this long as special delivery arrangements will be required, and access needs to be considered.
At Walcot House, we are well known for our unusual finials and pole finishes. Don't just settle for boring!
A more common way to fix. But as we offer passing brackets and passing rings in most of our ranges, wide spans can be achieved.
Our unique ceiling fix system can be used for spans up to 5m and comes in a wide range of pole finishes and can be used with normal or ripple gliders.
Our wooden poles are only available in 50mm diameter, but we offer a wide range of stains, gloss and matt lacquers and wrapped poles. Some are available with a hidden track.
Three metal finishes are available: real stainless steel and brushed bronze (antique brass) are offered in 19mm, 30mm and 50mm diameters; black is 19mm only.
If you are doing a wide span, and your curtains are very long or heavy, use our
extra support brackets
(if you are ordering by component)
or extra support arm add-ons
(if you are ordering a pole set)
If you need to have your curtain pole supplied in one piece to avoid a centre join, (for example if you don't want a centre bracket as you are using a very light voile or a single curtain) some poles are available in 300cm lengths
and most poles are available in
240cm lengths in one piece.
Remember - at the bottom of each of our pole product pages (in the components section), we show, in red, the span we recommend between brackets.
However, if you would like to see this infomation all in one place, we have created an INFOBLOG which you can read here.
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).
