Lined Hem with Raised Chain
Most theatre curtains will benefit from some weight in the bottom. In both pleated and flat drapes we most commonly find a Lined Hem with Raised Chain. The reason for raising the chain is so that the curtain is able to make a “seal” with the often-times uneven stage floor. As the drape is travelled, the chain does not drag, thereby extending the life of the fabric in the bottom hem. Main stage drapes, masking drapes and cycs just to mention a few are typically manufactured with this bottom finish.
