Portiere Rods: A Winter Warmer?

9th December 2011
 

Over the last month, we have been receiving a growing number of enquiries about Portiere Rods on our site; with Christmas right around the corner and the cold weather now upon us, a Portiere Rod may be just what you need in your home!

Portiere Rods are essentially smaller curtain poles.  They are used for door curtains as they are very useful in reducing any drafts or heat loss which at this time of year is a very welcoming prospect.  In warmer months where a curtain may no longer be necessary, the Portiere Rod has been designed to allow the curtain to be removed easily.  The traditional Portiere Rod, also known as a Rising Portiere Rod, are fixed to the door by a pivoting bracket which attaches to the frame or the wall at the side of the door.  The curtain will then ‘follow’ the door every time it moves.

Alternatively to the traditional (Rising) Portiere Rod, is the ‘swing arm’ Portiere.  Much like the traditional Rising Portiere Rod it is designed for door curtains but instead of following the door it is designed to act independently.  This means the curtain resides against the wall and can be closed manually whenever necessary.

Hi
I have a door that is 42″ wide (55″ including frame).
Do you have any rising portiere rods that long?
Many thanks

I am trying to find ‘something’ that I can attach to the door. I wanted a portiere rising rod but I keep on seeing that they must attach to the door frame on the hinged side of the door. Problem – I have no door frame; the hinge side of the door sits at 90 degrees to the wall.
Do you have a rising rod, that opens with the door, that could attach just to the door?
