WHAT'S INCLUDED IN A SET
We've taken the guess work out of your drapery hardware by included all items needed for your hardware based on the length chosen.
Included if needed based on length:
(1) Support Bracket
(1) Interior Fitting Splice
Please note that center supports will be included in your rod using the general diagram below. Support bracket will match finish of rod (photo shown is only as an example):
3/4" Dia - Any length 4' and above.
1" Dia - Any length above 5'.
1 3/4" Dia - Any length above 6'.
1.5" Dia - Any length above 7'.
If your rod is longer than 94", your rod will come in two equal pieces due to shipping restrictions. The rods will fit back together with an interior fitting splice and will rest in the center support bracket for a seamless continuous rod look.
If you'd prefer one continuous rod, please reach out for pricing on freight costs.
*Please note that rings are not included.
ADDITIONAL ITEMS YOU WILL NEED TO COMPLETE YOUR HARDWARE:
*Rings are not included in your set and must be added to your cart separately.

DETERMING THE BEST ROD LENGTH
Please select your desired rod length. If a length between the foot measurements is needed, please select the foot length one category longer than the specific length you need and list the exact length in the provided text box.
Rod Lengths are from the outside of the left wall flange to the outside of the right flange and DO NOT include the curved portion that returns to the wall. When ordering, please consider this when choosing your length. The best way to measure is to determine where you'd like your rod to start and end and measure the distance between the two points.
All rods include a 3.5" projection. For a custom projection, please contact us for a custom order.
*A round flange note: the flange will extend a 1/2" past the rod on both the left and right side. This means that the actual rod (from curve to curve) will be the ordered rod length minus 1".
We do recommend extending your rod past your window to accommodate the stacking back of your draperies. The absolute minimum we recommend is 3" past your window trim keeping in mind that your draperies need space to stack off your window/door space when not in use.
IF YOU CHOSE A LENGTH LONGER THAN 94", IMPORTANT NOTE**
If your rod length is longer than 94", your rod will come in two equal pieces due to shipping restrictions. Because of this, your order will also include the following items:
(1) Horizontal Plate Support Bracket
3/4" dia - spans up to 55" without a support bracket
1" dia - spans up to 60" without a support bracket
1 1/4" dia - spans up to 75" without a support bracket
1 1/2" dia - spans up to 90" without a support bracket
2" dia - spans up to 110" without a support bracket.
All needed support brackets are included based on your rod length.
These spans indicate how long the rod can be before it needs a support bracket.
*Please note that although the spans may reach very wide, shipping restrictions require the rod to be under 95" to ship in one piece. All rods ordered longer than 95" will come with a interior fitting splice and a center support bracket with horizontal plate.
