Silent Gliss Metropole
Silent Gliss Metropole looks like a curtain pole but features an internal gliding channel, offering the functionality and benefits of a curtain track. The range balances quality and functionality, with design to offer a timeless and elegant window solution. Metropole is available in 3 round profiles; 23mm (hand operated), 30mm (hand operated or corded) and 50mm (hand operated, corded or motorised), and a rectangular profile (36mm hand operated) Metroflat.

Silent Gliss 30mm Corded Metropole with Spear Finials
The corded Metropole is available in a choice of 15 contemporary colours, from striking metallics to muted and neutral shades, with a range of finial styles to choose from to suit contemporary, traditional and blended interior design styles. This corded Metropole is supplied with traditional spear style finials that flow seamlessly from the track profile for a stylised finish.
Ideal for Extra Wide Windows, Bi-Fold and Sliding Doors
As the brackets fix from the top of the track the Metropole tracks are ideal for extra wide windows, bi-fold or sliding doors as the curtains can run smoothly along the complete length of the pole. A single curtain can draw from one side to the other without any interference from any brackets. The Metropole tracks are available up to 6m as a single piece.
Track Length Recommendations
We recommend that straight tracks over 400cm and bent tracks over 300cm are supplied corded with both sides. This will mean the track will come in 2 pieces with a connecting bridge and intermediate pulley. We would also recommend upgrading to corded both sides on shorter tracks with heavier curtains. Please see the weight chart under the product specification tab for guidance. A single curtain can only be corded from one side. If you have a requirement outside of these recommendations you may wish to consider a Silent Gliss 30mm hand drawn Metropole with a draw rod for ease of opening your curtains.
Metropoles can be wall or ceiling fixed. A ceiling mounted Metropole will blend with the architecture of the room giving the curtains maximum impact. If ceiling fixing there is a choice of the 3mm fixing top plate (this is the standard ceiling fix bracket), ceiling hanger or top fix bracket to ensure room for the finials.
For wall fixing these Metropole tracks are supplied with the smart fix wall brackets as standard. These are available with a 60mm (this is the standard for standard gliders), 80mm (standard for 60mm wave gliders) and 100mm projection (standard for 80mm wave gliders). 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 more discreet. 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.
Fillet style wall fix brackets are also available offering a contemporary option.
