A Special Testimonial Part Two

14th September 2012

Its been a a little while since we last spoke about testimonials here at The Pole Company but we haven’t forgotten their importance.

You may remember a similar blog this time last year coincidentally posted during the billing schedule of a particular program on the BBC about a Doctor; I think it was called ‘Casualty’ or something?  Well it turns out a year on we’ve received a follow up response.  Have a read to see who this could be?

Hello again Pole Company!

Look at you all!  1 year later and you haven’t changed a bit, apart from age, and size. Its great to be back!  I do apologise for the delay, I meant to return the week after my last visit to update you on how my last purchase was received (the curtain pole based on the Beta Six Sonic Screw Driver model?) but was a tad delayed.  You know what happens, fake your death, reveal you’re not dead, seems to attract a lot of questions, Daleks attack again, the usual cycle.  Makes popping back in anywhere, well…challenging.

But yes I have returned once again, that’s the main thing, this time instead of a curtain pole, bit old hat now I’ve been told, I decided to acquire a shutter, or shutters, depending on how well the psychic paper is working. Ahem.  

Marvelous invention though these shutters! I’ve seen many in my time, and other times. Saw some lovely sets in Paris in the 18th century, no hang on that’s not recent is it? 17th? No no 21st, sorry I’m not used to doing that in the right order…Shutters though always make a classic look, great for privacy, light, and heat control, lovely stuff just what Amy and Rory deserve, the best!  Also read somewhere a good shutter will keep a good marriage together too.  True? Well yes, and No, more likely no, in fact definitely no, but all the same, great to be back.

The staff were as helpful as ever, definitely a ‘Pond’s’ ranking, a great recommendation few people in the Universe are bestowed and I should know, I’ve met most of them.  Even complimented me on the Bow Tie.  See, they are cool.

In the end we decided upon a custom fit shutter, S-Craft model I believe, seems to be a popular one, sturdy enough to stand up to the journey between time and space, so again very groovy.

Highly recommend this establishment! I am absolutely sorted and look forward to seeing you soon, possibly in the new year, who knows whats on the horizon!

Yours truly

The Doctor

We can’t work out who this eccentric fellow was?  But we would like to encourage all our customers to leave a comment after purchasing!  Of course it doesn’t have to be as enthusiastic as the one above but every testimonial is welcome!  To see our latest reviews take a look here, or if you have dealt with us in the past and would like to leave a comment!

The S-Craft Legacy

9th August 2012

For the last couple of years S-Craft have been busy planting agents across the UK .  These agents or ‘S-Craft Master Partners‘ have been hand selected by the renowned shutter company to represent them officially.

Now lets just be clear the S-Craft Master Partner program isn’t a shutter company conspiracy that The Pole Company has just unearthed, instead this initiative is a training and sales orientated scheme that only very few outlets are able to take part in.

There was never just one.  The Pole Company has always maintained a very transparent and upfront working ethos and want its customers to know all about the extra training our staff go through in order to give them the best service possible.  We would also like to mention that we are not the only S-Craft Master partners out there.  However this doesn’t mean we’ll be using a Bourne or Cross to take down the other Master Partners anytime soon but instead we welcome the fact that we are one of a select few.

So what does the Master Partner scheme involve?  Well S-Craft is one of the UK’s largest shutter companies with over 15 years experience picked some of its best wholesalers and offered them the chance to join this new training program with the aim to improve overall shutter customer service.

After a quick Welcome to the program the selected shop (ie.  The Pole Company) is given a number of extremely detailed training session to ensure that they are as well informed on all of S-Craft’s products and suitable to display the S-Craft Master Partner name.

To help show off our S-Craft work, we’ve included a list of some of the shutters we sell with a very brief summary of each.

1.  Full Height Shutters-These cover the full height if the window, great for privacy.

2.  Cafe Style Shutters– The panels are designed to cover the base of the window only, creating a very classic style.

3.  Tier on Tier Shutters– This involves independent shutter panels and help maintain fantastic light and heat control.

4.  Bi-fold/By-Pass Shutters– Utilises a track system for smooth operating and works incredibly efficiently as room divides.

5.  Solid Shutters– The original shutter ensemble.  This design was used in the UK for over 200 years and still works perfectly today!

6.  Shutters for French Doors– For those looking to cover their doors in stylish fashion.

7.  Shaped Shutters– Because every window is different.  This covers all types of custom shutters, just look at our shop display upstairs for a great example.

8.  Bay Windows– The classic window shape that if done incorrectly can cause a world of difficulty.  We have had many experiences with this one and highly recommend anyone looking to buy this type of shutters to please contact us first!

Our shutter expertise expands way beyond this blog and even the shutter section itself on the site so we highly recommend contacting the shop directly to speak to one of our trained staff as after all we aren’t Master Partners for nothing.

Shutters are just the tip of the Iceberg.

The Walking Dead

29th June 2012

Surprisingly at The Pole Company we are never asked what curtain poles would be useful in a Zombie Apocalypse.  A query like this may seem trivial now but ask Rick and the rest of his gang of survivors about what they would do and this blog may not seem so out of context.  So why should you pick up a curtain pole instead of a shotgun?

Well in all fairness, if The Pole Company is still standing customer service may be somewhat strained due to the hordes of zombies running around.  However here at The Pole Company we are optimistic about our chances and simply refuse to let our passion for window dressings be dampened by the looming presence of the undead.

To help you decide on what you need why don’t we set a couple of scenarios where certain products, that we currently sell online, could help make a difference!

So you’ve woken up to find yourself in this dangerous situation, most likely in hospital (that’s where most great zombie situations begin) and miraculously find your friends and family again.  Great news! You won’t quite know the extent of whats going on at first but that’s ok! How about an Out of the Fire Wrought Iron curtain pole?  We have mentioned these curtain poles once or twice before, but we always like to reiterate this range’s great benefits!  They are very stylish with many different finials to choose from, and are highly durable, great for the dual purpose of holding up your curtains as you rebuild your life and for beating zombies with (please note this has never been tested and we do not endorse or recommend trying it).

Scenario 2 you find yourself chased from your home and in new surroundings in say…a prison! (Sorry spoilers). What would we recommend for sprucing up your drab new location?  Shutters are a very useful.  They not only are great for blocking sunlight but also maintaining privacy, great when that peeping zombie is looking for dinner.  We have many types of shutters which can all be found here!

There’s also a 10% Cash Back Sale on Duette Blinds which for more information see here.  In terms of a zombie apocalypse, no they won’t offer much protection but their heat and light control is superb as well as their environmentally conscious attributes.   Hey a good deal in a Zombie related end of days scenario is still a good deal.

Thanks for reading a few last tips when Hershel says don’t look in the barn; don’t look in the barn,  don’t mention the governor and don’t trust Kirkman he’s almost as bad as George R R Martin in terms of ‘character development’.

Of course there will be fun things happening on our  blog in conjunction with this blog so please join follow or add us on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.


Energy-Saving in Style (Spot the Green References)

9th March 2012

Did you know up to 50% of the heat in our home escapes through the window? and on sunny days excessive radiant energy pours in through the window potentially creating a detrimental effect in your living space?  Scratching your head a bit like Frankenstein (He was green see) over what to do next?

Energy saving is a huge concern here at The Pole Company.  Over the last few years we have been working with some of the UK’s biggest Shutter, Blind and Curtain companies to create  energy reducing products for our customers.  So as you can probably tell we’ve gone green!  This doesn’t mean we’ve gone to  Star Trek convention, employed the Poddington Peas or become sponsored by Greenpeace but we like to play our part against environment degradation.

With over 20 years of experience here, The Pole Company know their energy saving products, which can reduce the energy loss in your home by up to 50%! and ultimately your energy bill reduced it will be!  Yoda couldn’t have put it better himself.

We know Its not easy being Green so here are some of our energy efficient products as discussed in our Green Leaflet to make things a little easier!



Shutters are something we’ve talked a lot about here, just see some of our previous blogs! Shutters are extremely efficient at filtering daylight to create a soft ambient glow and blocking the exorbitant amounts of solar radiation we previously mentioned.  When closed, the shutter’s veins trap a layer of air next to the window and increasing the general temperature of your home!  Might be a stretch for the dustbin though Oscar.

Bathroom Shutters

S-Craft Shutters Stylish and energy efficient!

S-Craft is one of our main shutter suppliers and we highly commend their environmental efforts  with their new L-Shape frame design to block out any drafts.

We’d also like to highlight Luxaflex Vinyl shutters which are 100% recyclable! Now that’s some conscious thinking from the toxic avengers at those companies!


Venetian Blinds

S-Craft have created the closest fitting wood Venetian blinds on the market right now.  I know what you’re thinking is S-Craft run by Captain Planet? Surprisingly no, they’re just really committed bunch of people.

What makes them really special is the the cords are placed on the slats which means no cord holes, which means when the slats are closed they mean closed; no more drafts!  Which is a great thing as you wouldn’t like us when we’re drafty


Curtains With Thermal Lining

So Shutters? tick. blinds? tick.  How about curtains? well the good people at Drapes have designed a range of thermally lined curtains! This makes them  particularly well insulated and needless to say-NO DRAFTS!!


Roman Blind with Thermal Lining 

Drapes are just the company to keep on giving as they’ve been working away to deliver thermally insulated Roman blinds! So in Brightest Day and Blackest Night…these blinds will reduce draft as well as keeping your home warm and stylish!


Luxaflex Duette Architella Shade

With its honeycomb pleated fabric this product is able to trap 3 pockets of air in its 4 layers, doubling the insulating properties of a window in winter and limiting the entry of solar radiation in the summer by half. Great news for you, less so for the Swamp Thing.

Easily one of the most energy efficient blinds on sale at The Pole Company today!


Luxaflex Architella Duette Shades- Displaying the Honeycomb effect


So that is our extensive blog on energy saving at The Pole Company.  Please look at our previous blog about some of the environmental events going on over the next month here in bath with the Bath Homes fit for the future organisation!  If any of those items above interested you why not give us a call or an email?

Please check out our Facebook group and Twitter for updates and more information on upcoming events and exclusive updates! There will be a lot of relate material for this subject!

Remember stay energy conscious and  Cowabunga dudes!  Thanks Michelangelo and thanks for reading!

As a customer it is important to know what you’re buying.  When customers visit our shop no matter if they’re looking for curtain poles, blinds, shutters or even a spare holdback we endeavor to show the product in the best possible manner to let the customer walk away feeling confident in their final choice.  On our website, depending on which product interests you, we want to help make sure that it is the right decision for you.


With this in mind we are highlighting our Gallery section!  Our gallery section is situated on our menu bar and in a nutshell is the home place of all of our images.  In this section you will find numerous images of all our work and interior shots to accompany a lot of our products.  Here’s a little rundown of what is in the section already:

Bay Window project in Cheyne Walk – This bay window project dates back to last year and is one of our first Gallery items.  This shows off one of our bigger jobs in London.  Have a look at the finished job or read about it here in one of our first blogs!

What we do – This is a handful of images which establish who we are as a company.  The album shows off a project we completed in a local hotel but includes curtain poles, blinds and shutters of all shapes and sizes, letting our work speak for itself.

Children’s Blackout Blinds – A very brief album showing off a few of our children’s Blackout blinds option.  A very simple album just to highlight that we can work with any environment.

TPC Designed Finials – This is one of our collaboration efforts with one of the local companies to create a stunning new finial for their latest range.  If you would like to read more about this new finial and see how it came about why not take a look at our previous blog about it here.

Out of the Fire – Here we decided to expand on one of our most popular lines.  This particular range deals solely in Wrought Iron Curtain poles, and is sourced locally.  Why not take a look at it to admire if nothing else.
Walcot House curtain pole collection – This is an example of another popular range on our site which we thought deserved more attention.  This modern range is shown off in a bunch of spectacular photos ranging from close ups of some of the finials to interior shots with a curtain pole perfectly slotted into a homely scene.

Shutters Feel Inspired! This is the latest of our gallery items.  An array of shutter pics showing off even more of our work.  This details all types of shutters on a number of different scales.

Our exciting Gallery section

A glimpse of our brand new gallery section!

We will be adding more to our Gallery section as the months go on, but in the meantime have a look at our current gallery items as mentioned above.  If you would like anymore information about the gallery items or have any ideas on what you would like to see in our gallery section then please contact us.  As always please join our Facebook group and follow us on Twitter!
