I have a customer who wants a single curtain across glazed doors which are almost 280cm wide. She wants something more decorative than a track ...... all the poles I find need a centre bracket.
There are two solutions to this problem.
The first is to use a pole that has passing rings and brackets. These are intended for bay windows but can be used on straight runs too. The rings are ‘C’ shaped and slide past specially designed brackets which mean you can have one pole several metres long.
The second solution is to use a pole with a track set into it. These are available in metal or wood finishes with a range of finials, corded mechanisms and some have false rings to look more like a real pole. They are supplied with a special overclip bracket which allows the curtain to pass freely along the whole length of the pole.
