Can I fit a 2.4m (7’10”) curtain pole without a centre bracket?
I want to hang a light/medium-weight curtain across a 2.4m (7’10”) alcove at about 2m (6’6”) high. My problem is that the ceiling is around 3m (10’) high, so I can’t use a centre bracket.
Will the pole be secure enough if it’s only supported at each end? I can get hold of a single-piece rod so I won’t have the problem of the weak spot where the poles are joined, but I’m still concerned it will bend/bow.

No, it Must have a center bracket. Why can't you use a center bracket? We hang drapery 18 feet tall. Just need a ladder . The center bracket is wall mount just like the ends.
No, the rod will need at least one centre support to prevent bending.
Were you hoping to mount it from the ceiling, or on the wall?
Yep, you need a center support. It will sag under weight and gravity.
That's want I suspected...
You're most welcome.
