While theatrical drapery manufacturer Sew What? Inc. has traditionally done a strong business in pipe and drape systems for trade show displays and exhibits, many new and interesting uses for the portable drapes are now showing up.

According to Sew What?’s general manager Lynda Vaughn, these systems are being put to use in a wide variety of applications, from red carpet events to church choir seating.

“We’ve seen the purchase of our pipe-and-drape systems really take off in recent years,” commented Ms. Vaughn, “not just because we’re becoming better known as an industry supplier of these systems but because more people are finding the value in the system’s versatility.”

Ms. Vaughn cites the growing use of step-and-repeat custom pipe and drape used as logo backdrops at red carpet events and press conferences where their pipe-and-base systems support large digitally printed backdrops, also custom-produced by Sew What?.

In addition, she points out, special events such as high school proms use the portable curtain systems to support large masking drapes or thematic drapes that turn gymnasiums and other locations into spectacular event settings. Inside those same events, pipe and drape can also define separate stage areas.

In churches, pipe-and-base systems are routinely providing a panel for modesty seating for their choirs, whose sections generally are elevated at the front of the sanctuary.

One of the more interesting applications gaining in popularity is for portable photo booths at special events including weddings, Bar Mitzvahs and gala parties. There they provide photographers an instant studio in which they can control the background and lighting, irrespective of the location, indoors or out.

Pipe-and-base systems are extremely portable, are easy to assemble and disassemble on-site, and versatile, with heights ranging from just a few feet to over 20 feet, and widths up to 16 feet. Pipe & Base hardware is sturdy, constructed of steel bases. They can feature standard or adjustable aluminum uprights, and solid or telescopic drape supports. Custom drapes can be made from a wide variety of fabrics, including velours, satins, and sheers in standard colors produced to size, or digitally printed with company logos and other custom designs.

“Of course, we’re still seeing pipe-and-base systems used extensively in trade shows and other exhibits,” added Ms. Vaughn, “but it’s wonderful to see how this concept has expanded into so many other unexpected areas.”
