Through an innovative engineering principle and a most unusual bracket-pole arrangement this product changes the traditional view on a curtain pole. The product is characterised by a pole that extends itself across the centre bracket to both sides. The gliders appear to float across the pole and, thereby, complete the design. Inside the pole a hardened string in an off-centre position is tightened by bolds hidden inside both ends of the pole. Therefore, the natural bowing due to pole and curtain weight can be compensated for yielding a perfectly straight pole up to a maximum span of 300 cm.
The implementation of this technology into a curtain pole was developed to perfection by interstil and is protected through a worldwide patent.
