A unique, innovative product, Bendy Curtain Rails can be shaped to any curve you desire, and cut to the length you need. Bend a curtain rail to match a shower floor tile design, to have a sharp bend near a wall for tucking a curtain out of the way when it’s not in use, or for some other design consideration. Bendy rails are very flexible and easily shaped by hand, though, for precise and repeatable curves, an installer can employ a jig.
Every rail comes with a pair of wall mounting brackets to secure rail ends to walls, and one or two drop rod assemblies (one for the 78″ long bendy rail, and two for the other models) to brace the rail to a ceiling. The 24″-long drop rods can be cut to length as needed.
Use of a Bendy rail requires hook & glide fixings for hanging a curtain. One pack of 11 Hook & Glide connectors is included with every Bendy Rail. Hook & Glide connectors glide effortlessly in a Bendy Rail’s track.
- Flexible aluminum and plastic construction
- Curtains move effortlessly once hung from hook & glide connectors

- Cut rails to length with a metal cutting blade

What is the warranty on a bendy rail?
The manufacturer’s limited warranty for defects is extended to the original “end-user” purchaser. When installed in a commercial setting, the warranty period is for 5 years from the original date of purchase. When installed in a residential setting, the warranty period is for 10 years from the original date of purchase. Please see the AKW warranty for details.
Why does the long bendy rail have to be delivered by truck?
The long bendy rail protected in it’s cardboard tube exceeds the longest length allowed by UPS and FedEx.
Can I make multiple bends in a rail?
Sure, you can make a whole bunch of bends.
How tightly can I bend a rail?
The manufacturer says they can be bent to a radius as small as 3″.
Can I mount a bendy rail to the ceiling?
This takes a little ingenuity, but it can be done. Bend the rail to the shape you want, hold it in position against the ceiling, and determine where it crosses solid material to which you can fasten the rail. At the points you marked, drill pilot holes into the plastic sleeve that joins the two halves of the rail (insert the drill bit into the gap between the aluminum channels). Now fasten the rail to the ceiling with screws. The screws must have a small diameter head (“trim head” screws work best).
Do you have a way to connect bendy rails end-to-end?
Unfortunately there isn’t a fitting for this purpose.
