Silent Gliss 23mm Metropole Hand Drawn Shard Etched

View description | View delivery options


Silent Gliss Metropole looks like a curtain pole but has the functionality of a curtain track. It offers a timeless and elegant window solution. The 23mm is available hand drawn and is available in a choice of 7 contemporary colours with different finial styles to choose from. The 23mm diameter is ideal for voiles, nets or lightweight curtains.  As the brackets fix from the top of the track the Metropole tracks are ideal for extra wide windows or bi-fold doors as you don’t need any passing brackets, so the curtains can run smoothly along the complete length of the pole.   The Metropole tracks are available up to 6m (except for chrome that is only available up to 4m) as a single piece.  You can join 2 together with a connecting piece if you have an extra wide window or bi-fold door.

This track is supplied with the etched shard finials.  These reflect the light beautifully and add an elegant twist to your interior design style.

This track comes with standard gliders (3533).  If your curtains are on the heavy side we would recommend you consider the 30mm Metropole range and upgrade to roller gliders on the 30mm track.  If you are considering wave curtains we would also suggest you look at the 30mm range.  Unfortunately wave gliders are not compatible with the 23mm Metropole tracks.  For more information on the wave heading please visit our blog post.

Due to the size of the finials these tracks are only suitable for wall fixing.  If you require a ceiling fix please consider the flush or stud end caps.  We supply the 60mm smart fix wall brackets as standard.  The website gives you the option to upgrade to the longer smart fix brackets (80mm or 100mm) and also to upgrade to the square smart fix brackets.  Please see bracket tab for more information.

We can also bend these tracks for bay windows. Please refer to the Bay Window Information & Advice tab for more information.

Please view the full Metropole brochure here.

These tracks come with a 5 year manufacturer’s warranty.

Max Length: 600cm for all colours except chrome (400cm). If you require longer Metropoles please order 2 tracks and a connecting piece (found under accessories at the bottom of the product page).

Brackets: these Metropole tracks are supplied with the 60mm smart fix wall brackets as standard.  We supply the tracks with the standard number of brackets recommended by Silent Gliss, colour matched to your pole.  To work out how many brackets you will receive the formula is: track length divided by 67, rounded up and add 1.  So for example on a track length of 250cm you will receive 5 brackets (250/67 rounded up +1).

If you need the track to project further away from the wall the website will give you the option to upgrade to the 80mm or 100mm smart fix brackets.

Please note due to the size of the finials these tracks are not suitable for ceiling fixing.  If you require a ceiling fix please look at the flush or stud end caps.

Square smart fix brackets: we also offer the option of upgrading to the square smart fix brackets.  This is a popular choice as the square smart fix brackets are concealed by the track profile.  If you order the tracks for a pair of curtains we will supply 2 standard smart fix brackets (one for each end of the track) as these will be concealed by the curtains.  The rest of the brackets will be square smart fix ones.  For a single curtain one standard smart fix bracket will be supplied (for the end of the track) and the rest will be square smart fix.

16 gliders per metre are supplied with this track as standard.  You can add more gliders if required

How to measure and order:

  1. We recommend you measure along your walls / windows.  Add the measurements together along all the sides of your bay to get a total track length.  We will then project the track accordingly depending on the brackets ordered with the track.
  2. If you know the angles we don’t require the cross diagonal measurements (these are shown on the form attached), however we recommend you supply the measurement across the front of the bay as this is a cross check the angles are correct.  If you don’t know the angles please supply the cross diagonal measurements required (shown on the form) and our software will work out the angles.
  3. Place your order through the website.  The order process takes you step by step through your purchase.
  4. Once we receive your order we will run the diagram through our software.  If any of the measurements are outside of our tolerance we will get in touch and ask you to remeasure.

Whilst we will endeavour to fulfil our delivery promises once the goods leave our warehouse we do rely on 3rd parties to fulfil their obligations.  We therefore recommend that a fitter isn’t booked until the goods are safely in your hands and have been checked for damage and any missing items.  We cannot be held responsible for any fitter cancellations.

We hope that you are delighted with your purchase.  We do recommend paint sample pots, wallpaper and fabric swatches are ordered prior to ordering the full sized items.  We can also send out ring samples, colour toggles or off cuts of curtain poles / tracks to ensure the colour is right before you commit to order.  Please email to request a sample.  Please note made to order / measure / cut to size products cannot be returned or exchanged unless faulty.  Please also note that we cannot accept returns on any paint orders as they are mixed to order.

For any standard products not listed above, in the event that you would like to return your goods we accept returns within 30 days of delivery.

There is an £20 collection charge to return curtain pole or curtain track orders. We appreciate this is a lot of money but this is what our couriers charge us. Curtain poles and tracks are classified as ‘oversized’ items and so they incur a premium for handling long parcels.

If you would like to return curtain pole accessories or curtain track spare parts these can be returned by Royal Mail or a carrier of your choice.  Please return smaller items to: The Home Of Interiors, The Design Hub, 41 Brookley Road, Brockenhurst, Hampshire, SO42 7RB.

To return and obtain a refund (excluding delivery costs) please email us at or give us a call us on 01590 615775. We will then contact you to organise the collection / return. Failure to notify us may result in no refund or an additional cost to forward your returned item/s to the correct address.

Any products you return will be at your own cost and the goods must be in the same condition which they were received.  The goods must be in their original packaging.  The goods are your responsibility until they reach us so please make sure any returned items are very well packaged to avoid damage while in transit. Please ensure the returns reference, which will have been emailed to you, is clearly marked on the outside of the parcel.  We recommend you use the outer packaging the goods were delivered in.

If on receipt of the goods we inspect them and conclude that they are not in the same condition they were sent out in we will not be able to provide a refund. We will notify you if this is the case.

The refund, minus the original delivery charge and minus the collection charge, is usually actioned within a week of the items being returned but it can take up to 30 days. The refund will be made back to the account that the original purchase was made from.
