Do you have this size drape or this color drape in stock?

We’re the Drape Kings, so odds are, we do have what you need. Whether you’re renting or buying drape, Drape Kings carries an impressive stock of sizes and colors.

If (and this is a big “IF”) we do not have what you need in stock as far as a specific height goes, we can employ our UNDER EASY™ method that allows the drape heights to be adjusted to the exact height you need. Beyond that, we can probably refer you to someone who has it, if it’s out there. Drape Kings is big on customer service, even if we aren’t the company who ends up servicing you.

How hard is it to put drape up?

Easier than it looks.

If you’re holding an event and you have the man-power to do it yourself, setting up drape is not hard at all.

Can I set up my own drape?

Sure!

Drape Kings offers three a la carte service options. As previously mentioned, if you have the man-power to set up the drape, go right ahead. We can still deliver the drape to your location for you if needed.

Are your drapes flame retardant?

Yes!

All of our drapes are made of inherently flame retardant materials.

What importance does fullness have?

Fullness adds depth, richness, opacity, and sound absorption. In many cases, the more fullness, the better, but that depends on your event needs.

Our drapes are sewn flat, thus allowing the user to select the fullness from nearly flat to more than 200%, depending on the fabric and desired look.

Most velour drapes are quotes at 50% fullness (1.5 times the fabric width). An ultra-thin sheer drape may be quoted at nearly 200% (4 times the width).

What types of finishes do you offer?

Our drapes are typically finished with a 4″ to 6″ pipe pocket that allows for the sleeving of the drape directly onto the hardware and the original Velcro tear-back pocket opens to eliminate humps where the drapes meet. Most drapes also include blind ties that allow the drape to be tied directly to a pipe, such as truss or existing theatre pipe.

Can you do a reveal?

Yes!

We are able to do both Kabuki Reveals and Traveler Track.

For a smaller display, we can also use our Quick Tracks to create a quick, flawless reveal.

I need a specific form to make an order. Where can I find that form?

You can either find the form in our forms section or you can ask any Drape Kings representative.

I want to place an order. What should I know in advance?

Before calling Drape Kings, please figure out the following:

  • What color drape are you looking to rent/buy?
  • How tall must it be? How wide must it be?
  • Do you need it shipped? Do you prefer to come pick it up at our warehouse?
  • Do you need Drape Kings to set it up and strike it?

Knowing the answers to these questions prior to contacting Drape Kings will simplify the ordering process, enhancing your experience with Drape Kings.

    What is “fullness”?

    When a drape is sewn or gathered with more fabric than the width of coverage, it’s called fullness.

    Back to Top

    Why add fullness?

    Fullness adds depth, richness, opacity and sound absorption. In many cases, the more fullness the better, but that depends on what your event requires.

    Our drapes are sewn flat, thus allowing the user to select the fullness from nearly flat to more than 200%, depending on the fabric and desired look.

    Most velour drapes are quoted at 50% fullness (1½ times the fabric width). An ultra thin sheer drape may be quoted at nearly 200% (4 times the width).

    What is “finish”?

    Finish refers to the top and bottom of the drape. Our drape is typically finished with a 4”-6” pipe pocket that allows for the sleeving of the drape directly onto the hardware; and the original Velcro tear back pocket opens to eliminate humps where the drapes meet.

    Most drape also includes blind ties that allow the drape to be tied directly to a pipe, such as truss or existing theatre pipe.

    What is FR and IFR?

    FR (Flame Retardant) refers to fabric that has been topically treated with a flame retardant solution. FR-treated fabric needs to be re-treated over time or during cleanings to remain flame retardant.

    IFR (Inherently Flame Retardant) refers to fabric that is woven with flame resistant yarn or treated during the finishing process, thereby guaranteeing its safety for the life of the drape.

    Both FR and IFR meet the industry standards set forth by the NFPA 701 Small Scale. Certificates are available upon request for all our rental drape.
