Theatrical drapes are an essential element of any stage production. At the start of the show, drapes create a sense of mystique and expectation. During the show, theatrical drapes cloak the movement of actors, technicians and scenery that assists in creating the magic of theatre. When the show is over, they provide the encores that tell the audience that it is time to go home.
Jands have been dressing Australian stages with theatrical drapes since the 1970s and have handled venues of all types and sizes, from scout halls to concert halls.
According to Jands, a good set of drapes should do the following four things:
- Make the venue look stylish, comfortable and welcoming
- Run smoothly and reliably in every show, every time
- Retain their colour, finish and overall ‘look’ for many years
- Comply with Australia’s fire and building compliance regulations
All drapes in places of public entertainment must comply with Building Code Australia (BCA) Specification C1.10. Jands offer drapes that are built with fire safety.
