We truly love when our rental drapes seem to have been specifically built for our client’s special and unique venue spaces, however large OR small they might be. This spring we were extremely excited to get to work with tour manager and overall creative designer Tuyet Ngyuen for the transcendent American rock band Deer Tick for their current US tour. She wanted some rental drapes that would light up like a dream, be lightweight and easy to tour with, and best of all, LOOK FANTASTIC on stage behind the band. These drapes would also need to work within the confines of some of the more intimate venues that they’d be performing in, and not be overly bulky or take up too much space on stage, either.


Our innovative Sales Rep Marilyn Moss suggested that they use our exceptionally stylish 12’h x 10’4’w Silver Textura Austrian Zip-Walls from our Silver Satin Rental Drapery Collection, so that they could have a “large-scale look” using only a fraction of the size that these specialty curtains typically come in for this style of ornate draping (usually around 30’h). These superbly lightweight 12’h x 10’4” non-operable Austrian Zip-Walls have hidden ties on top, which enable you to tie them to nearly anything, from a truss system to a modular pipe and base hardware system, and helps make them very easy to install. What makes our Austrian zip-wall draperies so special is that you can literally create an entire wall length of this lavish draping at a much lower height by zipping them flawlessly together. The reduced size of these drapes, both in height and width, enable them to work in smaller venues beautifully.

Our Austrian Zip-Walls can either zip together to create a stunning seamless backdrop, or be used as independent legs to add texture and depth to existing staging. This durable, IFR fabric is semi-opaque but still amazingly lightweight and plays with theatrical lighting superbly. Offering this size and style of drape in both White and Silver Textura, we have something you can use for all types of special events, productions, and concert tours. These drapes will reflect whatever kind of dramatic theatrical lighting you splash onto it, helping make any special event that much more remarkable. We love being able to work with our clients to help them create their design vision—especially helping offer ideas like this one for an extraordinarily special concert tour. We highly suggest that you check out Deer Tick’s tour schedule here to see this extraordinary band perform live in person!
