Double Curtain Pole

Windows can be the perfect medium to keep the warmth in while keeping the cold out. A drawn curtain offers a measure of privacy to those living in a densely populated area but it sacrifices letting the light in. The answer to this is a double curtain pole enabling the independent drawing and opening of both the main curtains and the lighter sheer curtains underneath. Sheer curtains maintain the lion’s share of the light coming in through the window and they also make it impossible to make out any detail looking in from outside. More »

Product description

We have developed a double pole system that is more than up to the task. Made using strong metal that will not bend or break, the inner pole is slightly thinner and designed to hold a lightweight sheer curtain that can open and close independently from the main curtain. This is perfect for the Summer days when light is wanted but privacy is needed. The front pole is thicker and perfect for holding light and medium weight curtains. Both can be closed or opened separately which is an advantage in both winter and summer alike.
