We have had the opportunity to work with community theatres as well as school theatre departments when it comes to stage curtains and curtain tracks. Theatre curtains tend to be very long and heavy and the thickness helps with sound absorption when the crew is moving props or the cast is gathering on stage prior to the next act. You can't just use any ol' curtain track for a project like this - you need to use a track that can withstand the demands of the theatre.
NOW THAT'S HEAVY DUTY
We have a wide selection of tracks that work well in this environment, but the 3120 Extra Heavy Duty Curtain Track is best equppied for this project.The 3120 track is an Extra Heavy Duty Curtain Track available in Silver or Black anodized aluminum. It has a thicker top wall for added support and cut to 8 ft and 4 ft or 6 ft and 6 ft sections for shipping (if you need 12 ft sections, give us a call for shipping information via a freight carrier). The 3120 curtain track is compatible with 7140 Double Wheel or 7146 Short Snap Carriers.
A stage isn't complete without curtains, so depending on the size of your stage, our Eclipse fabric might be the perfect fit. Eclipse curtains helps absorb sound and blocks 98% of light. It is a heavy-duty fabric available in a variety of lengths and widths so you can customize the entire look of your stage.
If you work with a theatre department that is in need of a quality curtain track to withstand the tugging and constant opening and closing of stage curtains, we can help. Our experienced customer service team can walk you through the project so the next time you open those curtains for an Encore you won't have to worry about the curtain track holding those curtains.
