Universal 16mm-19mm Extendable Metal Curtain Pole

This Universal 16mm-19mm metal extendable curtain pole features stylish glass style finials.  The poles are available in 4 finishes: satin steel, chrome, antique brass and a matt black.

An extendable pole enables you to adjust the length of the pole without needing to cut the pole to size.  The 16mm diameter pole is telescopic and fits inside the 19mm pole so that the total pole length can be easily adjusted to suit your requirements.  Please note there will be a small ridge where the 16mm pole meets the 19mm pole so you may just need to help your curtains over this.  Please view our YouTube video that features an extendable pole.

The Universal range of metal curtain poles offer exceptional value.  The extendable curtain poles are available in 16mm-19mm and in 25mm-28mm diameters.   Non extendable poles are available in a 19mm and 28mm diameter.  A 28mm bay curtain pole is also available with a ball style finial.

Unfortunately we are unable to take the rings out of the pole kits.  You can however remove the rings should you opt for eyelet, tab top, tie or channel style curtains.

Measuring Guide for a Curtain Pole:

Decide where the pole 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 pole length (A).

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.

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.
