Magnetic Brackets in ‘Double Rod Sets’

When purchasing the double rod set are all hardware provided to attach to the wall? What does the description mean “magnetic brackets”? what would the brackets be magnetized to?

Yes all of the brackets are included in the set. The brackets are magnetized to hold the double rods in place.

Simple Wooden Curtain rod for 126″ window

I’m looking for a basic, simple wooden curtain rod for my 126″ window.  do you carry anything that would work for me?

You could try LJB Wood Collection or Cassidy West Plantation Turned Wood. You will have to purchase the 12 footer and then we can cut it down for you.  You will need three brackets.  You can save on shipping by having us cut the 126″ length in half.  You will need a splice to join them back together again and the required center bracket will conceal and support the seam.

9′ long single string Traverse Rod

I have two curtains to hang over a large sliding glass door. I want the curtains to open in opposite directions i.e. left and right. Can I get a 9′ long traverse rod with one draw string that allows the curtains to function in this manner?

Yes we do have string drawn traverse rods, Creative Designs 2″ Traverse Rods they are available in wood or you could get the non decorative type.

1 1/2″ diameter, 118″ long curtain rod

I need 118″ long curtain rods with diameter 1 1/2″ and ceiling support for my floor to ceiling windows. DO you have anything available?

Yes we do have several, you could try looking up Curtain Rods by diameter or by length. We also have Ceiling Brackets. You can also explore the following options(they all come in 1 1/2″)

200″ long curtain rod

I am looking for a rod that is at least 200″ long. Do you have those?

We do have some rods in our Iron Art collection that can go that long but the shipping charges will be very high so we usually recommend sending them in sections along with a splice. The required support brackets will conceal and support the seam.

12′ long Apollo 1 1/8″ Steel Tubing

I’m looking at your Apollo 1 1/8″ Steel Tubing 12′ length curtain rod (SKU : 29800212). Do you have one of these but in 13′?


SKU : 29800212

Unfortunately we do not have those in 13′, you would have to purchase two 8′ rods and have us cut them down, they could then be connected with a splice. The two 8′ pieces would be cut to 6.5′ the required center support bracket will conceal and support the seam.

Extension for SKU:29800212

My window is 144 inches, but I want an extra 6 inches on both sides. I’m looking for a rod extension. If I purchase SKU:29800212 do you have an extension? Do you also have brushed stainless?

SKU:29800212

Unfortunately we do not have a rod extension.  The only thing I can suggest is that your purchase two 8 foot rods and we cut them down for you.They can be rejoined with an interior fitting splice and the required support bracket will conceal and support the seam.

Yes we do have brushed stainless, you will find it in our Finish listing.

Suggestions regarding shipment of a 17′ Curtain Rod

I need a curtain rod approximately 17′ in length. I already have the wood blinds and I intend to use the rod for decorative panels. What do you suggest I do?

Curtain rods in our Iron Art collection are sold by the foot and can be produced in that length but the shipping charges for a rod that lond are extremely high. I’d recommend that you let us ship the rod in sections, you can put the rod back together with a splicing tool which is an interior fitting piece, the required support bracket will conceal and support that portion of the rod.

Minimum clearance between Rings and Rod

I need 2 1/2″ inside diameter curtain rings with a clip.  They all seem to come in 2 1/4″ diameters.  Does a 1/4″ make much difference?  My rod diameter is 1 3/4″ and the man who is installing the rod told me I need 2 1/2″ rings.  I also need them with clips. The rod is metal and its of a bronzy color called “Earth”.

2 1/4″ inside diameter is perfectly fine because industry standard is that the ring should be 1/2″ larger inside than the rod or pole. You could check our Renaissance Collection it that has some bronze finishes, you can view the finishes at the top of the page, the link is yellow and the inside diameter is 2″. You could also try lookin in our Villiers Collection look at the 2″ ring on the second page. If you think you can use metal rings then you could try the Iron Art Collection or SKU: 355 in particular.

SKU:355

Rod size appropriate for SKU:TUSF

I am looking at the finials SKU:TUSF. Can you tell me what size poles go with these?


SKU:TUSF

Ans: that is for a 2 1/4″ pole.  The actual hole at the end of the rod is very small(about 3/8″), so that it can accept the screw that comes out of the bottom of the finial. There is not tapering on the rod.

Number of Brackets required to prevent a Rod (that covers a 148″ window) from bowing

I have a window that is 148″, and I need to go outside of the window to flank it. How many center supports are there to prevent bowing? I would prefer metal, and my panels are not very heavy, but they are lined.

You will need a 1 1/2″ diameter rod (just scroll down untill yo you reach 1 1/2″ diameter) or larger to prevent bowing. With this diameter you will only need three brackets.

Splicing rods

If I order 1 3/8″ diameter 10′ rods, would they be spliced and shipped?

Yes they would,in order to avoid extra shipping overhead.

Finial and Rod color option samples

 I am looking at  finials(2 1/4″) and rods(2 1/4″). I am a little perplexed by the various color options. Can you please tell me where I can see a sample of each of the options?

Atelier II, Creative Designs, Decorative Traverse Rods, Finesse, Finial Company, Heritage, Highland Timber, LJB Wood, Regal Reflections, Reniassance, Somerset all these have 2 1/4″ stuff. You can try curtain rods by diameter. You could also look at Creative Design Finishes.

Projection of Bracket SKU: IBEXL

Could you please confirm the projection of the following bracket SKU: IBEXL

 to be at least 7″.  Also, do you have color swatches?

Yes we have color swatches. The overall length of SKU: IBEXL is 7 1/8″ but the projection is 6 5/8″.

Do you have a bracket for a 1″ diameter rod that does have a 7″ clearance?

What finish are you looking for?  We do have this bracket which accepts a 1 1/8″ rod.  It has a 8 1/4″ projection but the post can be cut down. Here it is

I believe Antique Bronze would be the closest in color to match the rod that I have.

The Antique Brass from the Apollo Collection would be a close match to the antique bronze or you could consider doing a custom bracket from our Iron Art Collection.  You could check out some really nice finishes that would coordinate with antique bronze.

 

 

Transition Seam

My curtain rings get stuck at “seam” in the rod when opening and closing. Is there something to ease the transition over this “seam”?

Your rod should have come with a transition piece.  It is plastic and tapers down.  Unfortunately we do not have that part but you might be able to find it at the hardware store. If your rod does have that part and the rings still dont slide easily then try spraying it and the rod with silicone…water based.
