Default Circular Shower Rail

I need one of these to fit my new shower-bath, but the problem is the wall
is a stooving and I will be fixing to wallboard. The ones I've seen (in
Argos and Next) have small diameter brackets which haven't a hope of holding
up the weight of a wet curtain and its own weight when fixed to boards.

Anyone know of a stockist with circular or oval rails with larger (or even
double) brackets?
