Metropole Explained

27th February 2012

Whether you’re swinging around the city, engaging in illustrious altercations with fellow super powered individuals or simply overwhelmed with the hustle and bustle of everyday life it can be difficult to find to consider the precarious well being of your home environment.  As always your friendly neighbourhood Pole Company has the solution at hand.

If you could lower your web-shooters for a second and resist leaping back into action for a few more we would like to cast your mind back to last week where we mentioned our intention of promoting curtain tracks on our site as a potential alternative to curtain poles (see the blog itself for more details).

Of course its up to you, some people prefer the thought of curtain poles holding up their curtains rather than curtain tracks, but if you feel your windows are currently sporting a quick fix soltuion and need something new then here’s an idea which could help you out. The curtain track product we would like to introduce is the wonderful Metropole range.  The range itself combines  beautiful decorative curtain pole designs with the function of a traditional curtain track, essentially giving you the best of both worlds.  Is your Spidey Sense tingling yet?

At a closer look this particular range of curtain track comes in 3 diameters, 23mm, 30mm and 50mm in lengths up to 600cm.  The Metropole curtain track systems are available in two formats Hand Drawn and Cord Drawn.  However please note that the cord drawn Metropole option is not available in 23mm.

Colours for the range include White, Black, Diva Gold, Chrome, Oak, Mahogany and many more.  All look incredibly stylish while also a perfect for each and every Spider costume you may find yourself in over the years.  Again note that the large selection of colours is dependent on the diameter, so please check before purchasing!  Finials available online include the Spear and Ball, however we do sell an extensive range in the shop.  Take a look at the online brochure which can be found with each Silent Gliss product or here.  If you see a product you like please contact us.

All Metropole products can be bent to the necessary angle, which makes them perfect for bay windows.  They are not however suitable to bend around a Green Goblin’s head but they are able to easily fit into very awkward window spaces.
