Pipe and drape is one of Kettner Creative’s most popular rental items. It is simply the most cost effective way to transform a space. It can be used to create booth spaces, small rooms, and to hide unsightly walls.
The basics of pipe and drape
Pipe and drape is exactly what it sounds like: Drape threaded around aluminum pipes.
Drape – Available in a host of colors and fabrics; most common is velour and banjo fabrics. Header/Horizontal – An adjustable horizontal support for the fabric to hang from Telescoping Uprights – Unique slip-lock feature easily locks when pole is raised or lowered Base – The foundation of pipe and drape; weight depends on style of drape Sandbag – Recommended for taller pipe & drape configurations, depending on the size of the baseplate
Do you need to worry about these details? No! At Kettner Creative, we take care of the details for you and simply quote on a per foot basis. This means that you don’t have to count baseplates, uprights, crossbars, or drapery panels. We believe that it’s our job to make your job less complicated.
In most cases, the a heavier velour drape is used on stages for productions and concerts as a back drop.
Banjo drape is more affordable and is more common at trade shows.
