20mm Classic Pole in Beeswax
Our 20mm classic pole is suitable for most situations, though a 25mm pole may look better if you have very large windows or heavy curtains. Any length can be ordered, but once over 299cm for painted finishes, 240cm for polished or 210cm for beeswax, the pole will be supplied in two parts with a central joiner. Beeswax poles can be supplied in longer lengths on request, but won't fit in the forge and will therefore look slightly different.
If your pole is over 200cm long it is likely to require a centre bracket to stop it sagging in the middle when the curtains are closed.
Our beeswax finish is a completely natural finish, created by heating the steel in the forge and coating it with molten beeswax. Because the poles have a smooth surface the beeswax doesn't adhere to them, so they tend to have a shinier and slightly lighter finish than the finials, brackets and rings. In practice customers don't normally find this a problem once their poles and curtains are hung, and many customers prefer a natural finish with its attendant variations. If you would prefer a more uniform look however, please consider our matt black finish instead.
We do not recommend the beeswax finish for use in a humid environment, as it is harder to maintain and may rust. We feel that Matt Black is the preferable option.
Please note – we cut and finish each made to measure pole to your bespoke requirements, which may cause a slightly later dispatch time than our usual in stock products.
