Click to zoom

All measurements must be taken on the wall and we then adjust them here at the forge to make the pole sit an even 6.5cm away from your line for the brackets to receive it.

2 - Enter Measurements (in mm)

Always measure right to the corners of the wall. These are the measurements of the wall, not the pole.
1. Measure width from A to B (full width wall to wall) mm
2. Measure depth from B to C (inclusive of finial) mm
3. Measure diagonal from A to C mm

(Total pole length) mm.
Angle at corner B degrees

3 - Choose your finial, finish and curtain rings

Finial type Finish
Beeswax = 100% natural, net-zero product, very environmentally friendly, durable, gun metal grey and highlights the metal's natural grain.
Matt Black = Black in colour, durable, less environmentally friendly (VOCs), very uniform. Read about it in full here - What is the difference between matt black and beeswax finishes?

Made by the forge provided friendly advice and created an excellent quality curtain rail for this tricky door. I wanted to be able to shut out the draft yet easily open the curtain to allow access and this works perfectly. Thank you so much, I love it! - Thanks Sarah

Product description

Handmade in our very own forge in the heart of Suffolk UK, our made to measure door curtain poles have been designed to suit any door space and are easy to install, straight out of the box. You will find that our poles are not just visually stunning, they also offer functionality and durability, and these sustainable products are designed and built to last a lifetime.

Our L shaped curtain pole is made from solid 20mm steel rod so it is superiorly stronger than its rivals in thin hollow tube. The pole needs three brackets, one and each end and a special passing bracket near the corner which allows the curtain to pass over the top.

You can choose between any finial from the 20mm range, Cannonball, Button, Thumper, Ram’s Horn or Ball and Twisted Cage. Narrow doorways will need one finial with the other end abutting the wall with a recess bracket.

We offer special passing curtain rings and a choice of colour in Matt Black or beeswax finish. We advise that you need 10 rings per metre of pole.

The passing rings and passing brackets work together to allow the curtain to pass over the top of the bracket. Here is a video of how they work.

Passing rings will only function properly with proper pleated curtains. Loose headed curtains poorly present to the passing bracket and are liable to catch.

Product specification

Material: Solid 20mm iron bar.

Finial choice: Cannonball, Button, Thumper, Ram’s Horn, Ball and Twisted Cage.

Brackets: The pole will include: 1 x standard bracket, 1 x passing bracket, 1 x recess bracket

Both finishes are traditional and will enhance the beauty of the wrought iron pole.
