Stage and Theater Curtains
Not all stage curtains are made the same way, most are still make like they were 100 years ago. Decorating with Fabric Stage Curtains are designed with unique features to eliminate problem areas and to provide curtains that start out looking beautiful and retain that look for years of service.
Unique features such as:
TRIPLE UNTEARABLE TOP HEM: Most "traditional" stage curtains have one piece of burlap sewed to the back of the curtain, so the curtain is supported by one layer of burlap and the curtain material. Decorating with Fabric Stage Curtains have one layer of virtually un-tear able 18.5 oz flame resistant Herculite 80® vinyl-coated polyester, and then one layer of waterproof plasticized 10-oz. buckram, and then a third layer of curtain fabric. Because pleats are made by grommets, the curtain is supported by SIX LAYERS of material and TWO brass grommets. Quite a difference in strength!
FROM TOP TO BOTTOM: "Traditional" curtains have a boxy pleat sewed flat onto a piece of burlap. Decorating with Fabric Stage Curtains arrive from our sewing room flat, with special packaging for fewer wrinkles, and pleats are made on-site by putting an S-hook through 2 grommets. Same size pleats, same fullness, but round from top to bottom. Quite a difference in appearance!
NO CHAIN IN BOTTOM HEM: Most "traditional" curtains have a chain inside a cloth pocket sewed into the bottom hem, to provide weight. Chains don't stack or pleat neatly because they want to stay straight, and they wrinkle the bottom hem, and they rust and corrode the fabric and eventually may wear through the cloth, drop out, and drag on the floor. Our bottom hems have individual galvanized metallic weights, each inside an individual electronically welded pocket in a continuous strip inside the bottom hem - no rusting - no corroding - no wrinkles - no problem in stacking - no flattening out of the pleat - and no wearing through the hem. Quite a difference in design!
TRACK: Cord-operated, walk-draw, or electrically operated, straight or curved, chain-suspended or ceiling mounted - whatever the need for stage hardware, we can furnish it, with or without curtains.
STAGE CURTAIN ACCESSORIES: Different styles of chenille/felt letters for the valance, in a range of colors, and 6" bullion fringe in colors, to accent valances. Custom emblems or logos or lettering styles can be ordered. All letters and emblems are removable for re-use. Wrap-around curtain covers of 18-oz Herculite 80® material protect curtains from damage or wear.
FABRICS: Decorating with Fabric Stage Curtains have all the materials for stage curtains: cotton velour, inherently flame resistant polyester velour, cotton repp, polyester repp, plain or vinyl backed inherently flame resistant fabrics, scrim, muslin, leno, devetyne - whatever is needed. And everything passes NFPA 701 flame testing.
