Tracked Curtain Pole

This curtain pole features a track insert so marries the functionality of a curtain track with the beauty of a wooden curtain pole.  It can be hand drawn or operated with a pull cord for added convenience.  A tracked curtain pole will be supplied with gliders in the track profile instead of curtain rings.  These products are all manufactured in the UK, are made to measure and hand finished to your specification. The quality is superb and is a range we would highly recommend for both its functionality and appearance.

Silent Gliss Track Insert

Silent Gliss are renowned for their innovation and focus on quality and we are delighted to be able to offer this curtain pole with a Silent Gliss track insert that can be operated by hand, or with a pull cord.  The benefit of a track is that the curtains sit closer to the bottom of the curtain pole and the gliders facilitate a slimmer stack back vs curtain rings.  The cord operation also offers functionality benefits.  Cords work well at tall ceilings, or if one side of the curtain is difficult to reach.  If you have delicate or light coloured fabrics, a corded track can prolong the life of your curtains as you can open and close them without touching the fabric.

The Silent Gliss 6870 curtain track is channeled into the curtain pole as the hand drawn (non corded) option, and the Silent Gliss 3870 offers the corded functionality.  The track inserts are available in white, antique bronze, anodic grey and charcoal.  Please see the Track Insert colour options tab for recommendations.  White or black cords can be specified, along with white (metal), brushed steel or antique brass tensioners.

Glider Options – compatible with wave curtains

This curtain pole comes with Silent Gliss’s premium 2C gliders as standard.  These are a unique, two-component glider that offers stability and the soft component creates the quietest curtain tracks available.  There is an option to upgrade to roller gliders, which is recommended for heavier curtains for a smoother draw.  These curtain poles are also compatible with the modern wave curtain heading style.  80mm wave gliders are available which are required for wave curtains.  Please view our Wave Curtain Information page and watch our YouTube video for more information on the wave curtain heading style.

An adjustable brake and draw rod carrier are available on hand drawn poles (they aren’t required on corded poles).  The brake acts as a tensioner and prevents the leading edge(s) of the curtains jumping forwards, so the curtains stay neatly stacked back.  This is a popular accessory for wave curtains, as the wave curtain heading tape is stiff to enable to curtain to hold the wave shape, and the leading edges can fall out of the wave shape without the brake.  Please view our YouTube video that explains this in more detail.

Curtain Heading Recommendations

A 45mm curtain pole works exceptionally well with tall ceilings or extra wide windows and with heavy fabrics.  Floor length, interlined curtains complement the wide diameter of this pole to deliver an opulent, yet well proportioned look.

Readymade pencil pleat curtains are suitable, however made to measure curtains that can be interlined are more suited to the look of this pole to deliver a real wow statement at your window.

Double or Triple Pinch Pleat Heading

A double or triple pinch pleat curtain heading is a popular choice with floor length, inter-lined, curtains that will drape beautifully.  A double pinch pleat offers a more modern look, with a triple pinch pleat delivering a window dressing that is timeless and luxurious.

Eyelet Curtain Heading

Eyelet curtains are not compatible with a tracked curtain pole.  If you like the simplicity of an eyelet curtain we would recommend considering a wave curtain that is neat and stylish and is compatible with this curtain pole.  Click here for further information on the popular wave curtain heading style.  Please note for wave curtains you will need to select 80mm wave gliders when ordering your tracked curtain pole.

Curtain Pole Measuring Guide

Decide where the pole is to be positioned. This is usually above the window with the pole extending either side beyond the window.

how to measure for a curtain pole

Step 1: Measure the width of your window.

Step 2: The chart below provides guidance for making an allowance either side of your window for your curtain stack (shown as ‘B’ on the diagram above). This is particularly important if you want the curtains to clear the glazing when open. Please note the curtain heading, fabric thickness and lining specification will affect the width of the stack back. How much you would like the curtains to clear the window is down to personal preference. The chart below however is a good guide.

Step 3: Add the width of your window onto the ‘B’ measurement (x 2 for a pair of curtains) to give you the finished track length (A).

Please note this is just a guide so we recommend choosing the pole length available within your preferred curtain pole range that best suits your requirements. All poles can be cut to size with a junior hacksaw. We offer a cut to size service on some curtain pole ranges. Please read our measuring guide blog post for further information.

For precision measuring we recommend the GATORTAPE Window Furnishing Precision Tape Measure.
