Many venues are equipped with colors that do not coincide with a customer’s color scheme. An easy and convenient way to decorate the wall space for any event is using pipe and drape. With interchangeable drapes, you can accommodate any style choice the client has.
The system can also be used to divide a larger room into smaller sections or into booth spaces for trade shows and conventions. The kits can also be used for backdrops in meetings and pictures. If you need a photo booth for an event, pipe and drape can be useful for that as well.
Things to consider when choosing pipe and drape:
1) What height do you need the draping to be?
Our kits cover heights from 3 feet, which is commonly used for booth sides at trade shows or conventions, and 8 feet to 14 feet for the wall draping used for backdrops. The ceiling height for the venue needs to be taken into consideration when determining the height you need.
2) How broad of an area do you intend cover?
Pipe and drape kits consist of a cross bar that attaches between the upright vertical bars. The cross bar can vary lengths between 6 feet and 10 feet long depending on how much area you choose to decorate.
3) What style of draping will coordinate best with the customer’s event?
The three styles of fabric we offer for pipe and drape are Banjo, Poly Premier, and Performance Velour. These fabric types are inherently flame retardant. This means the fabrics meets the fire code standards and does not require further treatment after repeated washing.
Banjo is the standard fabric primarily used for trade shows and convention booths. There is a slight sheen to the fabric that makes it almost shimmer. Poly Premier has a more upscale appearance than the Banjo and is often utilized in churches, weddings, and photography backdrops. Performance Velour is the new level in superior performance drape. With a lavish feel and high opacity, this fabric is great for theater use, galas, and other events where a plush looking drape will add a more sophisticated look.
