Front of House 

Commonly know as the "main curtains" the FOH drapes are usually made from velvet velour to give a beautiful and sumptuous look to your stage. These are often lined with a lighter material to prevent light leakage from the on-stage lighting. Many other fabrics are also available to suit your budget.

Wings 

Often called "legs", these are situated along each of the stage and are used to prevent the audience from seeing into the wings. They are usually made from black fabric but can also be light grey (takes light very well) or coloured, depending on the venue. These drapes are often suspended on swivel arms so they can be positioned to allow easy access during load-ins and load-outs. 

Masking 

Any drape used to hide lighting, rigging or structure. Usually made from black wool serge or Molton to block and absorb light. 

Cyclorama 

The cyclorama (or cyc) is any drape that defines a performance area but usually refers to a white canvas across the rear of the stage. The cyc can be tensioned, hung from a barrel or mounted on a track. It can be painted to create a background scene, used as a projection screen or washed with coloured lighting. 

Projection screens 

Projection screens have become an important part of modern stage equipment. With a wide variety of surfaces now available, including front and rear projection, they can be used for film viewing, scenic projection or as a general purpose cyclorama. You can choose from roller screens, tensioned screens or even track mounted. 

Others 

Black Drapes, Gauzes, Voiles, Starcloths 
Black drapes (travellers) are often added mid-stage to reduce the stage area depending on the show requirements or used to mask a cyc or wall at the rear of the stage. 
 
Gauzes and voiles are also widely used to add effects and reveals during theatre shows or product launches. 
 
Drapes can also be used to create pelmets and false proscenium arches. 
 
Starcloths can be supplied with white or coloured LEDs or fibre optics.
