Bracket Projections - Use brackets with 1 1/2” projections for hanging tapestries; use 3” projections for most single layer window treatments; use 6” projections for two layer treatments.
The 1-1/2” and 2” diameter rod brackets are rated as heavy duty and 50% thicker than our brackets for up to 1”diameter rods. Order the C-Style Bracket only for bypass support locations, and Standard Brackets for all others. Unless specified, rods may have seams located in equal sections based upon the number of brackets ordered for each rod. Only the Standard Brackets will conceal any rod seams.
How many brackets do I need?
To determine the recommended/guideline number of brackets just divide the length of each wall area by 72”, always round up and add 1. For example, a 120” window would be 120/72, or 1.66, which would be 2. Then add 1 for a total of 3 brackets. For light fabrics or valances, of course, you may use fewer brackets, but generally do not span more than 72” without a center support. For heavy fabrics, use our heavy-duty brackets with at least the guideline number of brackets. Using the guideline number of brackets also hides all rod seams.
