Welcome to the world of pipe and drape, a versatile and elegant solution for creating temporary walls and stunning backdrops, brought to you by Display Group. This system, comprising bases, uprights, crossbeams, and fabric drape or printed backdrop panels, is a staple in the event planning industry. Let’s explore how these components work together to transform any space into a visually captivating environment.
Understanding the Pipe and Drape System
The foundation of any pipe and drape setup is the steel base. Its size and weight vary depending on the drape’s height and material. For shorter sections, a smaller base suffices, while taller and heavier drapes require larger, heavier bases. In some instances, we recommend additional support like sandbags for drapes up to 25’ tall.
Uprights, available in various heights and adjustability levels, are crucial for setting the desired wall height. At Display Group, we offer both fixed and adjustable uprights to cater to diverse needs, from standard room dividers and crowd control to custom-sized setups for specific events.
The crossbeams, connecting the uprights, support the drape. They come in adjustable sizes, allowing for flexibility in the span and width of the drape setup. For wider areas, we might suggest truss support for optimal stability.
The heart of the system is the drape. With a plethora of colors, fabrics, and weights, our custom drape creations at Display Group have led to an extensive inventory. Whether it’s banjo-style for trade shows, velour for corporate events, or specialty drapes for weddings and experiential environments, we’ve got it all.
For a more thematic or custom touch, digitally printed backgrounds are a fantastic option. They can be easily attached to the pipe and drape frames, offering a unique look. Our in-house team can create bespoke designs to suit any event theme.
Corporate Events: For a high-profile corporate meeting, we used elegant velour drapes along with adjustable uprights to create a sophisticated and professional backdrop.
Weddings: A recent wedding featured a romantic setup with royal purple, white, and navy blue drapes, accented with flowers and golden curtain pulls, framing a cozy white sitting area.
Trade Shows: At an expo, we utilized banjo drapes for booth partitions, providing both an aesthetic appeal and functional space management.
