As 28mm is possibly the most common size of metal pole, we have seen this dominate the market and be most customers ‘GO TO’ diameter.

Some manufacturers such as Jones have chosen to use the 28mm diameter, but the thickness of the actual pole is thicker, giving extra strength.

With a large market, many manufacturers have lots of accessories to help make double poles, bay windows curtain poles and most recently long lengths in one piece.

The ends of the curtain poles (Finials), many manufacturers select the Ball Finial design as the starting point, but many have fancy and cut glass finials.

With 28mm, the choice of brackets can have many customers bewildered. Many cheaper poles come with a simple bracket that will do the job, but as the quality of the range increases so does the bracket design.

We do prefer the brackets with concealed screws, for two reasons, one the screws are hidden, secondly and most important, these brackets normally allow 3 fixing points.

Metal Poles in the 28mm diameter also have a large number of accessories such as Passing Rings and brackets, these are used in Bay Window or long length pole sets ups.

The increase in pole diameter, increases the strength of the poles, and will also allows the poles to hold larger finials with more show.

With the larger diameters we see a new and fresh approach from manufactures. Lots of the poles in this sector will be Made To Order, or simply Cut to Size.

With the larger diameters we do see the lengths of poles increasing to 600cm.

The longer poles are 2 x 300cm and an internal Joiner.

40mm and Above

Above 40mm the metal pole becomes larger than life, and will need to be fitted in a large room.
