Wood Curtain Pole Fitting Instructions
Please read through these instructions before making any permanent fixings or adjustments. In the unlikely event of discovering a component is missing, please call us on 01751 430350. Two people may be needed to install the pole set.
Position bracket fixing plates on the wall at least 8cm outside of the window edges and mark the wall where the brackets should be fixed. A spirit level should be used to ensure the pole is lined up correctly but before drilling check your ceiling level to make sure the pole and the ceiling are running together. Where the ceiling is not level, the pole can be adjusted slightly out of level to compensate for the ceiling line. We have often found you get a better look when lining the pole with the ceiling rather than to simply level the pole.
An additional bracket is provided with the 240, 300, and 360cm poles for central support. This should be fitted after the end brackets to ensure accurate alignment. Make sure the centre bracket is at the same height as the side brackets to avoid any dip. The 240, 300, and 360cm poles are supplied as two poles. Longer pole pairs can be supplied up to 480cm (2 * 240cm poles) upon request.
Drill holes (7mm drill bit) accordingly and fix bracket fixing plates to the wall using the wall plugs and screws provided. Please note the wall plugs provided are suitable for solid walls only. Attach brackets to the fixing plate and screw fully back to wall positioning the bracket cup ready to take the pole.
If you need to cut the length of a two piece pole set you need to cut equal amounts off each pole as this will ensure the joint sits above the central bracket. It is best to position the cut face to the ends of the jointed poles as the finial sits over the end of the pole and masks any small cutting imperfections.
Where two poles are to be joined, they must be connected together using the wood to wood dowel inserted into the pilot holes. Turn the poles in opposite directions until the joint is fully closed. When moving the connected pole ensure both sides are supported to avoid joint strain or separation.
Lower the pole on to the brackets (ensuring equal number of rings are placed each side of the centre bracket). One ring should be placed between the end bracket and the finial to hold the end of the curtain in place.
To secure the pole to the brackets insert a fixing screw into the base of the bracket cup and apply both upward pressure to the screw head as you are turning and an equal amount of downward pressure to hold the pole in place until the screw “takes hold” and continue turning until the screw head sits flush with the bracket.
Your pole is now ready to accept your curtains. If you have any further questions or problems regarding fitting please, do not hesitate to call our technical support.
Dust regularly with a soft dry cloth. Do not use household cleaners or abrasives.
