This is the latest bay window curtain pole that actually works with eyelets. These bay window curtain poles has a solid construction with a 28mm or 35mm tube. Using a central supports and the side supports makes everything incredibly well supported and give the eyelet curtain enough space to move around the curtain pole efficiently.

The 3-sided bay window eyelet curtain pole from Direct Fabrics has a elegant and slender finish and works well to complete your bay window with stunning eyelet curtains!

Unlike other bay curtain poles this one is fully compatible with 1 pair of curtains.


Recommend Fitting Heights for Eyelet Bay Curtain Poles

For 135 Degree Bends a maximum fitting height is recommended of 286cm

For 90 Degrees bends a maximum fitting is recommended of 230cm


Why Choose This 3 Sided Eyelet Bay Curtain Pole.

The central support and the end support are extra strong which allows for no brackets to be used in between the main sections of the pole other than the middle, this means that you get a full sweeping effect for the curtains even around the corners.


Your options when it comes to Bay curtain poles:

The pole is available in both 28mm to 35mm diameter. Standard eyelets are usually 44mm an will work very well with the 28mm eyelet bay pole. If you choose the 35mm pole then 50mm + eyelets are slightly better to allow them to move along easily.

There are 4 finishes with the Eyelet Bay Curtain Pole:


 Stainless Steel Curtain Pole

Stainless Steel 

Chrome Effect Curtain Pole


 Spun Brass Effect Curtain Pole

Black Nickel Effect Curtain Pole

The pole has a choice of 17 finials and these can be selected whilst purchasing




Layout of the Bay Curtain Pole

For L shaped windows you will receive 3 end brackets in total. 2 to be positioned at the end of the longest pole and 1 to be positioned at the end of the shortest pole. The centre bracket is designed to blend into the pole and have a low impact discrete effect, whilst being very sturdy.


Unique Corner Piece & How to Bend the Corner

Passing Bay Curtain Pole Corner

The corner piece has been produced to be able to be bent to the angle required for the bay window all the way up to 90 degrees. The best method is to hold the metal corner piece upto the window and slowly bend it to fit between the 2 straight lengths of pole. Then take down the 2 straight lengths and twist them together with the corner.

Remember whilst bending over your knee it is advisable to use a towel to stop the grooves within the unique corner not to dig into your skin and pinch. Ensure to bend the corner joint in the direction it is meant to be. Thus creating an internal bend. 


Specification of Eyelet Bay Pole Corner

The corner has had grooves cut out of it to enable it to be bent. IT is manufacutured to only be bent once with some adjutment. Please do not bend it back and forth as this will coporimise the strength of the corner. The advice is to mark the angle and then bend the corner close to what is required then adjust accordingly.

When working with the corner piece it should be noted that when connecting pieces together using the joining splices they twist into each other. Be careful not to push as this will damage the system.




Position The Brackets for Eyelets and Curtain Rings.

If you are fitting the pole with a pair of end brackets then the right location is to have one curtain ring in between the finial and the bracket.


Eyelet Pole Brackets and Curtain Rings

Strong Curtain Pole Brackets for Eyelet Bay Curtain PoleSpecification of Heavy Duty Wall BracketThe brackets are made from a solid a cast steel which means they are tough and durable.

How to Measure For Curtains, Blinds and Tracks.

Pen and Paper

Someone to assist if your
windows are large .

Make sure your curtain tracks and poles are fitted in the position you want.

Choose the type of curtains that you would like and how you want to hang your curtains. See our heading styles guide

We recommend fitting your hardware first before measuring, this avoids any issues with not getting the perfect fit.

Measure in 3 places and take the shortest drop – Floors and ceilings can run out.

Double / Triple check your measurements

how to measure for curtains

Choosing your Curtain Track Width

The width of the curtain track should extend past your window this allows for the curtains to stack back away from your window and allow light in.

Measure your recess and then add on 15cm on either side. For acoustics , we recommend further to fully cover the window and the surrounding area. In our test we added an additional 30cm to the width and also made the curtain floor length.

Wave curtains, for every 100cm of track the curtains will stack circa *18cm

Eyelet curtains, they will stack back circa 10cm per *70cm of track width

Pencil Pleat will stack approx 25% of the track width. eg. 210cm track will stack 52.5%

* all dependent on thickness of fabric

How to Measure for Blinds going Inside the Recess

How to measure for blinds inside thet recess

  • Measure the exact width of the recess in three places; at the top of the recess, in the centre of the recess and near the bottom - then take the  smallest size.
  • Measure the exact drop of the recess in three places on the left hand side of the recess, in the centre of the recess and on the right hand side of the recess - then take the smallest size.
  • We will take one cm off the finished width size you have given us, to allow for the blind to pull up and down easily.
  • Double check your measurements
  • Cord Safety - Mounting Height - We ask for the mounting height of your blinds to allow for the cord to be 150cm off the ground. If mounting at 210cm This is what you enter in the Fitting height box. We make a deduction to ensure the cord is 150cm from the floor. Thus the cord loop will be 60cm

How to Measure Outside of the Recess

  • Measure the recess in 3 places on the width and also 3 places on the drop. Take the widest measurement.
  • Measure the width of the actual recess plus an additional amount – Usually from 7cm-15cm whatever you think looks appropriate. This is for overlap.
  • Measure the exact drop of the recess. The blind would be fitted above the recess, so check the space above and add an amount on to the drop – usually from 7-15cm
  • These sizes you have taken will be the size of the finished blind.

  • Double check your measurements
  • Cord Safety - Mounting Height - We ask for the mounting height of your blinds to allow for the cord to be 150cm off the ground. If mounting at 210cm This is what you enter in the fitting height box. We make a deduction to ensure the cord is 150cm from the floor. Thus the cord loop will be 60cm

Cubicle Tracks you have to measure with right angles from wall to wall where you want the track to go

Draw your room on a piece of paper with a sky view

Now measure from the wall to wall for straight tracks,

L Shape Tracks Measure to a point on the floor and mark with a piece of tape. Then for the other sides measure from the other wall to that point.

Always check for obstructions and fitting issues you may need to work around
