    Hi Dee
    I am sorry you are having so much trouble with your poles. I have no experience with either but do know that Karen in Edinburgh is the forum expert on Metropoles.
    Maybe try PMing her.
    Kindest Regards

      We put up some tapestry style fabric curtains in a barn a few years ago on a metropole and we had to hire a scaffolding tower due to the height which must have been 4 to 5 metres, so I am sure it would be ok. I saw the house for sale in local paper recently and they were still hanging at the window!

        These curtains aren't interlined, so the pole should be fine with the weight. If you are worried, you can order extra brackets separately for the pole, but I don't think it will be a problem.
        Kind regards

          Sorry to be so late and not living up to my reputation!

          A 3m straight corded 30mm Silent Gliss Metropole will take up to 9kg in weight but can be double to 18kg if corded both ends for a pair. What you can do is guestimate your fabric by doing the maths on the lining and fabric per sqm. I know some companies can tell you the sqm weight on fabric and most linings have the weight information. Its always best to take the weight guide seriously. I once had a customer who did not and then had to get the poles corded both ends because she did not bother with the weight table and the cord snapped.
