Corded Curtain Poles
If you like the look of a curtain pole but want the convenience of a track, there is a great solution: a corded curtain pole. This type of pole has the shape of a traditional design, but uses gliders instead of rings. You’ll never have to struggle opening and closing the curtains again; the curtain runs smoothly and effortlessly along the pole. All you need to do is pull on the cord.
Silent Gliss Metropole
The Our Silent Gliss 6120 and 6160 Metropoles are great examples of how useful corded designs can be. Also known as Metropolitan poles, these are high quality products (as you’d expect from such a well known brand) and are perfect for hanging medium or heavy weight curtains.
We sell two sizes of Metropole: the 30mm 6120 and the 50mm 6160. Both can be used for bay windows, and which version you choose will largely depend on the size and scale of your room. If you have high ceilings or slow, sweeping curves, the larger 50mm pole will make a definite impact, while the 30mm version is perfect for smaller spaces or tight angles. There are also a range of finishes available: if you have a rustic farmhouse you could go for a beech or oak effect, while more modern interiors look great with a metallic finish.
Finials and midials
Another advantage of a corded pole over a track is that you have the ability to customise the design by adding finials and midials. These fit on the end or middle of the pole to make the effect just that little bit more special. You could order a ball finial that matches the finish of the pole, or attach a wooden or bamboo accessory for a natural look.
Straight or bay windows
Our corded poles can be custom bent by our technicians using the latest computer technology. That means they can be fitted to virtually any window, whether you have a round, square or angled bay, want to hang curtains across a corner window, or have a simpler situation in mind. The thinner Silent Gliss 6120 is the most versatile design as it can be bent to sharper angles than the chunkier 6160. However, the size of the 50mm pole makes a strong statement for a great look.
Functional and stylish
With the curtains running smoothly along the pole on nylon gliders, the convenience of a cord and stunning designs available, a corded curtain pole is the perfect mix of function and style. They can even be combined with uncorded poles so you can have lightweight voiles and heavier curtains at the same window.
