How long does my 3 sided Pole kit need to be?
This is the first question that needs answering when starting your journey to purchase a curtain pole for your 3 sided bay window. You must measure the individual lengths of each window in your bay before you can choose the perfect pole for it. Help is on hand, with our how to measure for bay window curtain poles guide.
Which 3 Sided Bay Window Kit To Choose?
There are a few options when selecting the correct 3 sided bay pole kit for your window. The decision needs to be taken based on your own individual window, as all bay windows are slightly different.
If your window has 90 degree angles, then you need to select a 35mm Speedy bay kit or Swish 3 sided kit, as these come with either double corner joints or a 'snake corner joints' which allow the poles to be connected around a tight bend. If however, you have bends which are not so tight, then you can choose any of our Speedy, Swish or Universal 3 sided kits.
Do I wall fix or ceiling fix?
This is vitally important when choosing your 3 sided bay poles. The ideal solution is to have wall fix brackets, but you need at least 10cm of space above your window for wall brackets. You also need to ensure that there is something solid to screw the wall brackets onto - not the window! It is sometimes necessary to fix a wooden batten above your 3 sided bay window, so that you can fix your brackets onto this.
If you don't have at least 10cm of space above your window, then you need to use ceiling fix brackets. These screw into the ceiling rather than the wall. When using ceiling fix brackets, you must ensure you screw into the joists in the ceiling, or use suitable plasterboard fixings.

Not a problem! Simply head over to our 5 sided bay window curtain pole page, where we have a brilliant selection of poles for windows with more than 3 sides.
