Stage Curtains & Drapes
Theatrical curtains, drapes and accessories come in a variety of types, sizes, materials and colours. Permanent stage curtains are generally made to order, but Portable Backdrops are available in a range of ‘off the shelf’ sizes.
Portable Backdrop Kits
Available in a range of fixed sizes, the backdrop curtain is suspended from a lightweight crossbar. Both the height and width can easily be adjusted since the suspension poles are telescopic.

Permanent Stage Curtains
Different names mean different things to different people, so here, for the purposes of clarification is a general (although not exhaustive) list of the main types we supply and install on a regular basis.
A word about curtain tracks…
Stage curtains and drapes weigh considerably more than domestic curtains and so need a heavy-duty suspension system. Tracks come in a variety of shapes and sizes – straight sections, overlaps, curves and even crossovers.
Rear curtains are frequently specified with a hand-drawn (walkalong) track system, but most Front of House track systems are installed with either a manual or electric winch. Electric winches also have the benefit that they can be operated remotely, from a control booth for example.
It is generally possible to upgrade a hand-drawn system to a winched system, or a manually winched system to an electrically winched one. Most track mechanisms are modular in design, ie the additional components are simply added to the existing installation – there is generally no need to remove the existing track – please ask for details if this is of interest.
