A Little Bit of Drape History…
In the past, draping anywhere in the kingdom was an arduous and complicated endeavor. The only available option was traditional theatre drape, which has grommets and ties every six-to-twelve inches across the top hem and is also quite time consuming to attach. The search for hanging hardware sent you to heavy steel lighting pipe, base, and cheeseboroughs that came from a lighting supplier. To put the drape up, you needed a crew to build the steel, and to tie on the drape one-tie-at-a-time.
Then came Drape Kings
Seeing the need to modernize a full-service method of supplying and installing event pipe and drape, Drape Kings decided they must leave the castle, and bring its wares to the land.
The Kings innovated a top-sewn pipe sleeve with tear-back pocket and adopted the use of low-profile steel bases, slip-lock adjustable aluminum uprights and adjustable horizontal drape supports to allow for quick, easy hardware solutions.
Since our inception, we’ve also instituted the new standard, inherently flame-retardant fabrics to replace the outdated cottons that faded, shrank, and needed to be retreated with flame-retardant chemicals if washed.
Keeping the drapes and hardware in the highest regard, through years of research and design, we’ve pioneered our molded plastic hampers, plastic pipe cases, and custom designed base boxes, all which move easily up ramps and across ballroom floors.
Drape Kings continue to innovate, releasing new solutions in hardware and drape, keeping our rightful place as the Undisputed Leader in Event Drapes.
