Alex curtain rails
Alex has all the installation options and accessories that make it easy for you to get the rail just the way you want.
Available in standard sizes or made-to-measure
The Alex-rail can be ordered in standard sizes or made-to-measure. By using a joint you can assemble several rails into a longer one.
For light and medium-heavy curtains
Fits light and medium-heavy curtains but can also be used for heavier curtains, but you may need more fasteners and shorter spacing between them to make it stable.
Easy to assemble
The Alex-rail features click-brackets for mounting in ceiling or on the wall. The rail then clicks into place, and can be adjusted sideways if needed.

STEP 1 b
Only if you chose rail in standard dimensions: add the mount!
If you select a custom-made rail, skip this step.
Which accessories you need for your rails depends on how you intended to set up your rails, for example, you may need a joint if you were going to put together two rails for a longer rack. The custom-made Alex rails do not include a pivot stop, which you can add on if you want. And as mentioned above, the brackets are not included in standard dimensions.
Curtain height when mounted on ceiling
For the curtain to hang freely from the floor and you should have a little margin – deduct about 2 cm generally. Remember to measure in several places, if the floor / ceiling is a little uneven! For different measurements, use the smallest measurement.
In addition to ceiling mounting, consider deductning a few centimeters from the total ceiling height, as the rails make the curtain distance from the ceiling. Below you will see how much you need to deduct depending on which hook you choose:
Alex + deep pleat hooks with short neck
Alex + deep pleat hooks with long neck
Alex + wave/rufflette hook
Distance between rails when assembling 2 rails, for double curtains
The distance between the rails need to be about 10 cm for both curtains to hang nicely. If you want to achieve a wave-curtain you will need a bigger space between the rails than pencil pleats.
Consider the window sill and radiator!
If there is a window sill or radiator that comes out from the wall, you should place your rail at least one cm further out, so the curtain can hang freely.
