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.
Our pipe and drape comes in a wide variety of colors, and can be setup at 3’, 8’, 12’, or 16’ tall. We can almost always setup our pipe and drape to effectively suit any event or venue.

Your audio visual company was professional, polite, hard working and extremely flexible during our last minute request. Weddings can be stressful and your company took the stress out of the A/V portion of the wedding. Robert was amazing with us on the phone set and he really gave us a sense of peace that this event was going to be handled.
Your set up was great and it was impressive to see the owner of the company working with his crew on a Saturday.
