    Re: what is classed as medium weight curtains

    When I used to measure and fit curtains I used to work on the theory that using a standard size patio window as an example.
    Unlined curtains, voiles = light weight curtains
    Lined curtains = medium weight curtains
    Interlined curtains = Heavy weight curtains
    Naturally this just a guide
    Regards Dave and Sue

      Thank you for replying Dave and Sue, I've just managed to weigh my curtains. They're 5.2kg. Although they are interlined and to the floor they dont feel too heavy. Would these be medium do you think?

          The link Louise has posted gives a more comprehensive guide, are trying to find out if a particular pole or tack is suitable to hang them from?
          5.2 kilos does not sound a lot but suspeneded from a flimsy pole or track could be a problem.

            Thank you Louise, Dave and Sue. I think Louise's guide has answered my question. My customer wanted to know if a 28mm metal pole was ok rather than a 32mm that she had been looking at.

              Hi Louise



              It seems forumites found this quite useful when you first put it up, but I couldn't find any iunformation on the link. Got some latin text when I searched the site itself.... any ideas how i can pick up the info? Much appreciate it if you can help. thanks

                It looks like that site has been re-organised but I've found these on other sites that might help
