I bought a new curtain pole for my bay window only to find out the fittings are larger than the batten above the window. I'm not sure if this is normal as I've only ever had a cheap curtain track fitted to the batten. I have plasterboard walls but I'm not sure if it could hold up the weight or not. It's a 28mm metal pole with a rough length when fitted of 2.5m. Any advice guys?

Is there no brick behind plaster board you could alternativly use anchor plugs. Normally in this situation I use long drill bit and drill into brick wall then using long screw and plug on top tap in gently with hammer and tighten up or you could using fixing screws and plugs those have extra long plugs.

Thanks for the info. I'll look into the options.

Everywhere else in the house is hollow between plasterboard and the walls. Above the window does sound a little more solid though so I am hoping it's at least brick.

This makes me wonder if there's any brick behind plaster board you could alternativly use anchor plugs. Normally, I use and always prefer spam removed Mod 2.curtains to the rest and thank goodness, I've never encountered such mayhem.There are a variety of poles and other provisions that come with the set thus catering for any such inconvenience. However, I think that in this situation it's advisable to use long drill bit and drill into brick wall than using long screw and plug on top tap in gently with hammer and tighten up or you could using fixing screws and plugs those have extra long plugs. Hope that one works.

Cheers!
