Uncorded Poles with Gliders

Get the best of both worlds thanks to a curtain pole with gliders. That way you have the classic look of a pole, plus the ease-of-use of a track.

Although pole shaped, our Silent Gliss Metropoles have nylon gliders instead of rings. That means the curtains open and close smoothly, even if they’re heavy or large. And while some curtain rings scrape and screech, gliders are extremely quiet.

Why Choose a Pole with Gliders?

Poles with gliders can have more brackets than regular poles as there are no rings to interfere with the movement of the curtains. That means they’re ideal for bay windows or weak fixing points. The lack of rings also means you can fix the pole to the ceiling if required.

Use an uncorded pole if you want to make a statement with your window treatments. While conventional curtain tracks are typically low profile and understated, poles give a more dramatic effect.

We can bend these poles to fit the shape of your window perfectly, whether it’s multi-angled, curved or square. Simply enter the shape and dimension of your window when ordering for an instant quote.

Silent Gliss Metropoles

The Metropole is a stylish, contemporary design from a respected manufacturer. Choose from a variety of colours and finishes, including metallic and wood effects, plus a number of different widths. A chunky design looks best mounted high up in a large room, while slender models are more suitable for small windows and low ceilings.

There’s also the Metro Flat, which has a rectangular profile instead of round. This pole fits in perfectly with angular furniture and modern interiors.

All models have compatible finials and midials for even more design options.

  • Chiltern 48mm Uncorded Lacquered Wooden Curtain Pole with Gliders

    The tracked 48mm lacquered pole has been designed to look like a pole but operate with the smooth running efficiency as a track. We route a channel in our 48mm wooden pole and insert a curtain track into the pole, the curtains are closed by drawing the curtains by hand. This way the curtain track is not seen and in no way spoils the look of the pole, but the gliders run very smoothly from side to side.

    As well as being available in six modern colours that we have selected as part of the range, the 48mm pole is also available in any colour of your choice. The 48mm tracked wooden curtain poles are also available in a paint to order service where we will paint the pole to match any colour of your choosing. We will match any colour you request, whether it is a leading brand such as Farrow & Ball, Dulux or Crown, or even a sample.

What our customers are saying...

These guys were awesome. They were very helpful with measurements way before I committed to buying anything. The pole was perfect and very easy to install. I really struggled to find anything else out there that was as good.


Five Star Service. I have used The Curtain Pole and Track Company on various occasions. Very nice, helpful people. I found their advice invaluable – they certainly know their stuff – and I cannot recommend them highly enough.


The rail arrived on Friday and my husband fitted it over the weekend. It was fixed perfectly and fitted to the centimetre. The curtains have not run this smoothly in years.


Thank you very much, excellent service.


I would like to thank you all for your incredible customer service. The product arrived yesterday as promised and it is superb. I am so impressed with everything.
