Bradley Gliderpole Flat Profile with Flush End Cap Finials

The Gliderpole flat profile measures 36mm in height and is available in a choice of 20 Matte, 29 Satin and 28 Gloss finishes ranging from warm and cool contemporary neutrals, to cool greys, smokey blues and black along with a range of metallic finishes.  There is a choice of 16 finial styles to co-ordinate with a range of interior design styles to complement modern and traditional homes.  This hand drawn Gliderpole flat profile is supplied with flush end caps for a simple finish.  These are particularly ideal if recess fitting wall to wall.

Pricing: as the poles are bespoke, made to measure items, as you work through the order process and choose your selections the costs are added onto the finial price to give you a total.  There is no additional charge for the flush end cap finials, hence the starting price for this pole set is £0.00.

Ideal for Extra Wide Windows, Bi-Fold and Sliding Doors

The brackets hold the Gliderpole in place from the top of the track making them ideal for extra wide windows, bi-fold or sliding doors allowing the curtains to 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 Gliderpole tracks are available up to 3m in one piece.  Tracks over this length will be supplied in equal parts (unless otherwise specified) and will be supplied with a pole joiner.

Bracket Options

The Gliderpole brackets offer superb quality and easy installation.  Wall and ceiling fix brackets are available to offer flexibility in fixing.

Wall Fix Bracket Options

Bradley offer side brackets to be positioned at the ends of the Gliderpoles.  These have a longer backplate to offer increased support where the weight of the curtains will sit when the curtains are open.  Mid brackets have been designed to be installed along the rest of the pole.  These have a shorter backplate so are more discrete than the side brackets.  Magnetic, colour co-ordinated cover plates are supplied with all wall brackets to hide the fixings for a polished finish.

Heavyweight side and mid brackets are also available.  These are recommended for heavyweight curtains.  Adjustable side brackets are also available.  These are supplied as standard with bent tracks to allow room for adjustment during installation.  They can also be specified for straight tracks if required.

The standard and heavyweight wall fix brackets are available with 2 projections: 60mm and 100mm.  The 100mm bracket is recommended for wave curtains to allow the fold on the wave curtain to draw so that it doesn’t rub on the wall.  You may also wish to consider the longer brackets if you want your curtains to sit further away from the wall to allow space for window or door handles, or deep skirting boards for example.

Double brackets are also available which are ideal for layering window dressings.  Please see our Double Gliderpole range to order a double pole set.

Ceiling Fix Bracket Options

A light and heavy duty flush ceiling bracket is available.  The top of the Gliderpole will sit 3mm away from the ceiling.

Custom Brackets

Bradley offer a bespoke design service to enable them to offer bracket solutions in challenging installations.  Please refer to the Custom Bracket tab for further information.  Please email for a quotation or call us on 01590 615775 to discuss your requirements.

Glider Options

The Bradley Gliderpoles are supplied with Silent Gliss gliders delivering high performance and a smooth draw.  All Silent Gliss gliders are manufactured using 2 components – a soft component to reduce noise and a hard component for stability.  The standard (2C) gliders are suitable for pencil, gathered, pinch pleat or Swiss pleat curtains.  Roller gliders are recommended for heavier curtains.  60mm or 80mm wave gliders are required for wave curtains.

Suitable for Bay Windows

Gliderpoles can be bent for a bay or L shaped window.  We do need to bend the tracks for you in the factory as they can’t be bent by hand.  Please download our measurement form here for a bay or L shaped window.  Please upload the completed form to your order.  Please get in touch if we can offer any advice or if you have any questions.  Please email or call us on 01590 615775.

    silent gliss wave curtains

    Gliderpole tracks are compatible with the Silent Gliss Swiss Pleat curtain heading style.  The Swiss Pleat curtain heading is a simple curtain heading that delivers a relaxed look.  If space is limited (depth wise) it may be worth considering as it is a slimmer curtain heading to the Wave style.  Please note due to the construction of the Swiss Pleat curtains we cannot put a lining on the fabrics.

    Curtain Tracks

    The Swiss pleat curtains will come with Silent Gliss 2C gliders sewn into the curtain heading.  It is advisable to order a Gliderpole at the same time as ordering the curtains (as the track will be supplied without the gliders on).  Please ensure the track length matches the track / pole width when ordering the curtains.

    Please note: if you are recess fitting the tracks to fit wall to wall, or ceiling recess fitting, we would recommend waiting until you have received your curtains before installing your track.  You will need access to the end of the track to feed the gliders and curtains onto the track.


    The Swiss Pleat works well in a voile / sheer fabric layered behind a wave curtain.



    Gliderpole Measuring Guide:

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

    Step 1: Measure the width of your window.

    how to measure for a curtain pole

    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 is however a good guide.

    Step 3: Add the width of your window onto the B measurement (x2 for a pair of curtains) to give you a finished Gliderpole length (A).

    Measuring Guide for a Curtain Pole and Curtain Track
    Please note this is just a guide.  All Gilderpoles are made to your exact size.

    Recess Fitting

    If you are fitting your Gliderpole wall to wall or within a recess we recommend you take the wall to wall measurement and deduct 1cm to ensure the track can be fitted easily within the recess.

    Wave Curtains

    If you are opting for a wave curtain the stack back is a mathematical calculation. A curtain stacks back 18cm per metre of curtain track with an 80mm wave heading, and 23cm per metre of track with a 60mm wave heading.

    Please see the example below:

    On a 3m track for a pair of curtains with an 80mm wave the stack back will be 3m x 18cm = 54cm / 2 = 27cm each side.

    For a single curtain the curtain will stack 54cm one side.

    On a 3m track for a pair of curtains with a 60mm wave the stack back will be 3m x 23cm = 69cm / 2 = 34.5cm each side.

    For a single curtain the curtain will stack 69cm one side.

    Wave curtains are particularly popular over bi-fold or sliding doors or over large expanses of floor to ceiling glass. If there is wall space to the side of the glazing the track length can be worked out so the curtain neatly sits on the side wall(s) clearing the glazing to allow the light to flood into your room.
