Packages and Connecting Backdrops

We offer Complete Packages, as well as Connecting Packages (Extenders) that extend the width.

Please note that there is a difference between the two...



PACKAGES:

Each of our Complete Packages includes 2 uprights (vertical pipes), 2 bases, 1 drape support rod (horizontal pipe/crossbar), and the drapes*.

*NOTE: Drapes are included with our Complete Drape Packages. Framework Only Packages do not include drapes (as pictured above).



CONNECTING BACKDROPS:

Each Connecting Backdrop only includes 1 upright (vertical pipe), 1 base, 1 drape support rod (horizontal pipe/crossbar), and drapes*.

CONNECTING BACKDROPS WILL NOT STAND UP BY THEMSELVES. They must have a Package to "hook into", continuing the width. See below...

*NOTE:
Drapes are included with our Connecting Drape Packages. Framework Only Connecting Packages do not include drapes (as pictured above).


USING PACKAGES & CONNECTING BACKDROPS TOGETHER

If you wanted to extend the width of your set-up using Connecting Backdrops (where there are no "breaks" in the span -- more on breaks below), it would work like this:



The connecting backdrop "hooks" into the package (where they now "share" a middle upright). You can keep adding connecting backdrops and continue this repeatedly, like below...



This shows one Package (on the left) and 4 Connecting Backdrops.

REMEMBER:

-Connecting backdrops can be used to continue a linear span (connecting together with a package), and can also be used at 90 degree angles to create "L" shapes, "U" shapes, "boxes", etc.

-Make sure that your Package and Connecting Backdrops are the same height so that they can hook into each other using the top slots in the uprights.

-Areas in your set-up where there is a break (or breaks) will need to start over with another package (and then connecting backdrops if you need to expand the width)**.

-Our Packages cover 6 feet to 10 feet in width, and each Connecting Backdrop covers an additional 6-10 feet in width.



**MORE ABOUT BREAKS IN A SET-UP:

Let's say you want to cover 90 feet in width, BUT, you want 10 feet in the middle as an entrance way where there will be no pipe and drape. This entrance way is considered a "break" in the set-up. You would really have:

-40 feet on the left side of the room
-10 foot wide entrance way with no pipe and drape...this is a "break"
-40 feet on the right side of the room

For the LEFT side of the room you would need 1 Package and 3 Connecting Backdrops. (Remember, the Package covers 10 feet in width, and each Connecting Backdrop covers 10 feet in width).


For the RIGHT side of the room you would need 1 Package and 3 Connecting Backdrops. Because there is a break, a new package must start the new span.




Pipe and drape is what we do every day, so if you're still unsure about packages, connecting backdrops, or anything else regarding our products, please contact us and we're more than happy to help.
