Drapes are the finest way of completely transforming your Event Space.

From top Hotel function rooms, to Warehouses, to Sports Halls to Aircraft Hangars, we can offer a solution to match your creative and aesthetic brief. Nothing is too difficult nor too much trouble for us.

Our Drape Hire Equipment:

We can offer a wide range of drape fabrics, drape colours and drape rigging. In most venues we are able to provide a drape hire solution that will not involve any wall or roof fixings.

We hold one of the UK's largest stocks of Blackout Drapes.

These are ideal for a wide range of purposes including prevention of light ingress, and avoiding noise pollution and adverse room acoustics. They can also be used effectively as decoration. These blackout drapes come in a wide range of sizes to suit venues from small rooms up to the largest event spaces such as the NEC and Wembley Arena, both of which we have provided drapery to major productions.

Acoustic Benefits

Our blackout drapes present significant benefits to the acoustics of any venue. By using a thick wool serge drape, mid and upper range frequncies of sound are absorbed. This is of huge benefit when you want to limit the adverse environmental impacts associated with loud performances.

We often provide these blackout drapes to events where a high level of sound seperation is required between different event spaces. This is ideal if you are having a conference and need to create seperate breakout rooms within a large event space.

Our Blackout Drapes are made from 500GSM wool serge and feature the following properites:

  • Complete light blackout, including stopping broad daylight
  • Effective for acoustic treatment and featuring a high absorbtion coefficient, especially at higher frequencies
  • Our drapes have both ties and clips on two sides - allowing for a variety of rigging methods

Starcloth is a black fabric with many lights shining through; giving an impression of a night sky. It is an excellent way of dressing the back of stages or as a base decorative fabric. In recent years starcloth has become a base effect onto which other fabrics, set pieces and lighting may be used. Our starcloth features:

  • LED lamps with a medium-warm colour temperature
  • Base fabric of 500gsm black wool serge - thus matching standard blackout drape
  • Full blackout capabilities
