Universal 25mm-28mm Extendable Metal Curtain Pole

This Universal 25mm-28mm metal extendable curtain pole features stylish faceted ball 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 25mm diameter pole is telescopic and fits inside the 28mm 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 25mm pole meets the 28mm 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.

Please note you may need to help your curtains over the small ridge where the 2 poles meet.

Eyelet curtain recommendations: 40mm eyelets are ideal for 28mm poles and can be specified when ordering made to measure eyelet curtains.

Readymade eyelet curtains typically come with 40mm eyelets so go well with a 28mm pole.

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).
