Why Should You Use Heavy Duty Drapery Rods?

There are many benefits to using heavy duty drapery rods over regular curtain rods. When you are dealing with curtains of a heavier fabric, these types of drapery rods can really come in handy. You may not even be aware that your regular curtain rod is not made to hold up your heavier materials until it’s too late. When shopping for curtain rods for your window treatments, it’s always a good idea to consult with a drapery rod expert before making the final purchase. A professional in the industry will be able to advise you on the best heavy duty drapery rods for your situation.

Best Uses for Heavy Duty Drapery Rods

Heavy duty drapery rods can be used in both residential and commercial settings. For example: new parents will invest in blackout curtains for their nurseries, but will overlook the drapery hardware needed to hold up these window treatments. These heavier curtains are best paired with durable heavy duty drapery rods.

In commercial areas like ballrooms, theatres, and hotels, these high-ceilinged buildings need drapery hardware that can handle the weight of their tall curtains. Heavy duty drapery rods are perfect when looking for an industrial curtain rod application. Finding a decorative curtain rod to add a flair of elegance to your commercial space can be difficult, especially when you’re shopping for an item that is just as functional as it is ornamental. At Drapery Rods Direct, we have a wide range of heavy-duty drapery rods in a variety of styles to suit the tone of your space. Our drapery rod experts can help you find the best curtain rods for your heavy curtains.
