Sometimes, a customer wants the look of an Austrian Curtain, but doesn’t have the need (or required equipment) for the drape to lift.  The solution?  A non-operable Austrian Curtain.

A non-operable Austrian Curtain has the appearance of a standard (operating) Austrian – all the smiles / small swags – without the D-rings on the back.  Since it will remain in a stationery down position, no complicated lift system is required.  The curtain is sewn with a standard top finish – typically webbing with sewn twill ties – and tied directly onto  truss.  The curtain serves as a beautiful backdrop to the show or special event, without the added expense or hassle of a lift system.

Recently we had a customer, Audio Dimensions of Albuquerque,  purchase a gorgeous non-operable Austrian.  At 16′ h x 40′ w, this Grey Super-Vel drape looks beautiful under lighting.  Take a look at these images – I’m sure you’ll agree!

Naturally, there are times when nothing but an operable Austrian Curtain will do.  Consider the drama of an Austrian Curtain slowly raising to reveal the scene behind.

But if you are looking for a gorgeous backdrop to a show, and you don’t have the need to lift the curtain, consider the possibility of a non-operable Austrian.
