Pipe and Drape Backdrop Kits for an Amazing Event

Posted by JC on 4/24/2017 to Pipe and Drape
Pipe and Drape Backdrops

Pipe and drape backdrop kits help you completely transform any space into an absolutely amazing setting. They’re great because they are highly effective without being expensive or time consuming. As a bonus, they’re portable and reusable, so you can have spectacular events wherever you want, whenever you need.

This guide will help you figure out the perfect system for your special occasion. Let’s get started!

The main types of pipe and drape backdrop kits:

Complete Drape Packages include everything you need to have an amazing backdrop set-up in just minutes. These systems include the hardware components (vertical upright pipes, horizontal crossbar pipe, and base plates), as well as the drapes of your choice.

Framework Only Packages are a good option if you already have drapes or otherwise have a set-up in mind that won’t require the use of drapes. These systems only include the hardware components – uprights, crossbar, and base plates. (Tip: because Framework Only Packages do not include any drapes, they’re also referred to as “pipe and base kits” or “pipe and base systems”).

Tips for choosing the right pipe and drape backdrop kit:

1) What height do you need?

Our systems offer vertical upright pipes in many sizes, from 3 feet tall to 14 feet tall. Just be sure to measure the ceiling height where you’ll be using the system to ensure that your upright pipes will fit.

2) How wide of an area do you need to cover?

Our pipe and drape kits all include a drape support rod (crossbar) that adjusts from 6 feet to 10 feet wide. If you need to cover a wider space, it’s easy with our Connecting Backdrops (Extenders). These Extenders allow you to add to your overall width in 10 foot wide increments, and you can use as many Extenders as needed to fully cover the area!

3) Do you need drapes?

If “Yes”, check out our variety of drape fabrics. Picture the setting that you want to create, and choose your drape selection accordingly. Our Complete Drape Packages offer a choice of the 3 most popular drape fabrics, but we have several other drape fabrics that are also available.

If “No”, then review Tips 1 and 2 above and check out our Framework Only Packages.
