4 - How many curtain rings?

We advise that you have 1 ring per 10cm (minimum) of curtain pole.
Do ensure you have an even number of rings for each curtain.
A passing ring has a gap in it to allow it to pass over the brackets.
Please adjust the totals below to match your particular curtain arrangement.

Standard Rings

Passing Rings

Curtain rings come in two designs. There is the straightforward wrought iron ring and what’s known as the passing ring which has a gap in it to allow that section of the curtain to pass through the brackets.

Based on the overall length of the pole, the number of both types of rings you will need (1 for every 10cm) will be automatically calculated, we suggest half normal and half passing rings, but you may need to change this split depengin on the arrangement of your curtains.

Please note:

  • Passing brackets cannot be used with eyelet curtains
  • Most bays will need five brackets in total, two standard (end), two passing, and one centre bracket. If in doubt please phone and ask. 
  • All bays are supplied in 2 pieces as we cannot ship them in one piece due to the size
