One key benefit to using pipe and draping is that it is a neat and tidy way to create a divide in the venue. Not only this, but the process of assembling the equipment is very fast and doesn’t require many people to set up or take down. The piping is adjustable so you can have it however low or high that you require, it could be perfect for both walkway fencing or to act as a back drop to a stage. Our piping can extend up to 24ft in height and we have just invested in circular piping which means that we are able to create fabric towers or soften existing columns with nice draped curves.
