Traditional Wrought Iron Poles


Choosing your Traditional Curtain Poles

Our traditional curtain poles come in 3 diameters: 16mm, 22mm and 32mm.

Our poles and brackets are strong! - depending on the overall length of the pole, even the 16mm diameter traditional pole will comfortably support floor length lined curtains.

Each pole is individually made to measure from high quality, 3mm thickness tubular steel which offers strength and rigidity whilst minimising weight. In larger diameters hollow curtain poles are stronger and less liable to flex than an equivalent solid pole. Our experience shows that solid poles over 16mm in diameter are so heavy that they place excessive strain on wall fixings and plaster, especially when combined with heavy curtains.

We can make traditional poles to any length but for delivery purposes we’ll need to split poles exceeding 3.2m. Each joint is made with a solid insert which, when secured with a concealed grub screw fixing, is almost invisible. The joint is completely obscured by a central support bracket.

We offer a choice of 15 beautiful hand forged finials and a wide range of individually forged brackets. We have brackets to suit most situations but in period properties, old uneven walls can sometimes cause difficulties with fitting. We're experienced in solving many of these problems and if a standard bracket cannot be used, we can usually help. Matching curtain rings, hooks and holdbacks complete the look.

All curtain poles and accessories come in a choice of our natural black or light burnished steel finishes and are supplied with quality screws and plugs suitable for general fixing - you may find that there are some situations which require more specialist fixings.

Prices are calculated per cm (subject to a minimum pole price of £30 to cover the cost of making very short poles) and can be finished in either of our surface finishes.
