Uncorded Curtain Poles
Uncorded curtain poles are a design classic – but that doesn’t mean you have to go for a traditional look. Curtain poles with rings create a warm, homely feel, but if you’re after something more modern, a pole with gliders is a great option.
Take a look at our hand-picked range, including everything from off-the-shelf curtain rods to custom design Silent Gliss curtain poles.
Traditional Curtain Poles with Rings
Curtain poles with rings are a more traditional style of curtain rod. They suit older properties and create a feeling of comfort and luxury. Our metal designs are solidly built and will last for years.
Although this sort of pole has been around a long time, our up-to-date designs are cleverly engineered to be easier to use.
Rings made only from metal can scratch and scrape, but our rings have plastic inlays ensuring they run along the pole smoothly and silently.
If you have extra-long curtain poles or bay windows, it’s likely you’ll need a number of brackets to support the pole. With O-shaped rings, the brackets can get in the way, but with our C-rings and passing brackets, you’ll be able to manoeuvre your curtains with ease.
Uncorded Curtain Poles with Gliders
Most modern uncorded curtain poles have nylon gliders instead of rings. These make opening and closing the curtains easier than ever before.
The Silent Gliss Metropole is a fantastic example of a pole with gliders. The pole shape means it looks attractive, and it’s available in a range of colours, but it works as efficiently as a plain white track.
This sort of pole is especially good for bay windows, as the gliders run freely past the brackets. It’s also extremely quiet.
If your curtains are very large or heavy, you might find poles with rings difficult to operate. In that case, it’s best to go for uncorded curtain poles.
Best of Both
Both types of pole can be bent to suit bay windows and be made in lengths of up to 600cm – in one piece! For the best bay or long window poles, take a look at the Silent Gliss 6130 Metropole and Bradbury Stainless Steel Pole.

- Bradbury 30mm Stainless Steel Curtain Pole with Rings
The Bradbury Pole works in the traditional manner of having rings hand drawn along the pole. It is a stainless steel 30mm diameter pole and is of a very high quality. The Bradbury Pole can be bent by our engineers using heavy duty electric power bending machinery. To withstand this process, the pole needs to be of an extremely high standard – not any pole can be bent to suit bay windows. This model is 100% stainless steel and not a steel pole with a stainless steel effect.
The Bradbury Pole also has exceptional bracket technology. Most poles with rings foul the brackets as they pass, but the Bradbury Pole has a special passing bracket that allows the curtain rings to flow past the bracket when used in conjunction with a C-ring.
The 30mm Bradbury Pole is also suitable for eyelet curtains and comes with a 5 year guarantee.
Please note finials and end caps are sold separately.

- Silent Gliss 7610 - 30mm Metropole
The Silent Gliss 7610 Metro Pole is the best selling bespoke curtain pole for bay windows. This is because it operates like a track but looks like a pole. The gliders and brackets are fitted in separate channels on the pole so that the gliders and curtains can run smoothly around bends and past the brackets without any restriction or interruption. An additional benefit to the pole operating in this method is that the pole can be fitted to a wall or virtually flush to a ceiling. The 30mm diameter Metropole is available in white, matt white, ecru, taupe, ochre, sand, antique bronze, bronze, chrome, silver anodised, anodic grey, slate grey, gunmetal, charcoal and black.
