Buy or Hire

Need some drapes? We have two options for you:
  1. Temporary solution - in our Hire Stock we have a huge range of wool and molton drapes of various sizes.
  2. Permanent solution - Custom made / made to order - We can provide wool, molton, velvet, velveteen, lycra & gabardine for starters. Production time is generally 3-4 weeks, depending on current workload.
But remember if you want them by tomorrow you'll have to pay us a nice bonus to work through the night!

We also hire and sell autopoles with base plates, uprights and cross-bars if you require free-standing drapes.

Fabric Selection

Please email us your postal address if you require samples.

As a rule - wool is the best. It can last up to 50 years or longer if it's well cared for. Some of the other fabrics like molton or velvet may only have a 10-15 year life, so although it's cheaper - it doesn't go the distance. If you can afford the wool, that's your best option.

For stage skirts we recommend gabardine , as it's light weight and doesn't get wrinkled when put away for storage.

Lycra is used for making 'truss socks' - available in white or black.

The white satin is perfect for weddings and parties, they shimmer beautifully and look stunning - especially if you hang one of our star curtains behind.. you get the twinkling effect of hundreds of LEDs through the shimmery satin - very pretty!
White fabrics reflect colour, for example you can transform white satin drapes into a soft pink or vibrant blue, depending on what lights (and gels) you use.

Specialty Curtains

Star curtains are available for hire or sale, and come with a controller box giving you effects such as 'strobe' or 'twinkle'. (Available in white or multicoloured LEDs in various sizes). Please contact us for pricing and further info.

We have many options available so if there's something in particular you're after then why not contact us and try your luck!

Curtain Repairs

We can repair or alter curtains and drapes at our workshop if they are still in good overall condition.

It is usually best if you can email a photo of the curtain or drape showing any damage to start with and we will then discuss the options available.

Support Systems

Hanging your drapes

For hire or temporary situations we usually use autopoles to hang the drapes. They are supported by a heavy steel base plate & spigot, which holds the vertical pole (up to 6m in height). The horizontal poles extends up to 3m wide. These work great as long as there's no wind around. For permanent installations, we suggest steel poles or tracking. To discuss your options please give us a call on 9371 1032 and we'll sort you out.

We can even manufacture curved curtain track to suit your space.
