Some helpful things to consider when ordering stage curtains:

Types of soft goods available include: travelers, borders, legs, valances, drops, tab curtains, contour lifts, Austrian puff curtains, cycs, and scrims.
What kind of fabric would best suit your needs?
Muslin, Scrim, 16 oz. Velour, 20 oz. Velour, 25 oz. Velour, 32 oz. Velour or other
What color would best suit your needs?
Does curtain needs to be flame retardant?
All curtains and drops in schools or public buildings must be flame retardant and must meet NFPA 701 Fire Code.
What are the dimensions of your exitsting curtains? Width? Height?
If your current stage curtains were sewn by a professional drapery company, this information is usually attached to the curtain. Look at the top or bottom edge of the curtain for this information. If this is not available, you can measure or we will measure for you.
Is the curtain to be sewn with fullness or flat?
Fullness adds additional fabric to the width of the curtain panel and results in pleats. Added fullness is normally specified from 50 to 100%. Fifty per cent fullness means that for every foot of curtain, there is 18 inches of fabric; 100% means that for every foot of curtain, there is 24 inches of fabric. Curtain sewn with no added fullness are referred to as flat. Normally, all stage curtains have some added fullness, but it is not uncommon to see borders, legs and blackout drapes sewn flat. Scrims and cycloramas are generally sewn flat.
Do you need a lining?
Is there an additional curtain panel on the back of the curtain? These curtains are considered “lined.”
What types of side, top, and bottom finishes are needed?
Snap hooks or grommets and tie lines? Three inch side hems or half-width? Chain or pipe pocket in bottom?
How are the curtains to be hung or supported? On a pipe batten? On a track?
Front curtain and travelers are usually installed on track which allows for the curtain to open and close. Valances and borders are normally attached to a pipe batten. Masking legs can be attached either to a pipe batten or track, depending on the application. Types of tracks and pipe battens are sized depending on the type and weight of the curtains.
