Bay Curtain Poles & Tracks FAQ

Unfortunately most of our bay poles are not suited for eyelet or tab top curtains as these headings cannot pass the brackets. However, we do have a range of Rolls Neo Eyelet Bay Curtain Poles that may suit your requirements.

Bay poles/tracks are suitable for pleated curtains by using passing brackets and rings. These are used to allow the your curtains to be fully drawn to the centre of your bay, below is a brief description of each item.

Passing ring or 'C ring' Unlike a standard ring which is a complete circle, the passing ring or 'C ring' is a C-shaped ring allowing it to pass freely over the bracket, which is usually a specially designed passing bracket.
Passing bracket The passing bracket is not too dissimilar from the standard brackets you would receive with a standard curtain pole. The main difference is that they either lower the front edge of the bracket cup or remove the front and leave it as the bottom part of the bracket to support the pole. These act mainly for supporting the weight of the pole.

With most of our bay curtain poles the finials are excluded from the overall length. The one exclusion to this rule is our made to measure range which allows you to either select the length to include or exclude finials in the measurement, however this will be specified within the options on the product when ordering.

Cutting down the pre packaged bay poles/tracks can be achieved with a junior hacksaw. However the made to measure range cannot be cut down once produced as this will void your warranty.
