Let there be total darkness!

We provide light-blocking curtain fabrics not only for stages, but auditoriums, hotels and conference centres as well.

In summer, the light-blocking darkening materials also help protect against rays of the Sun, and in addition to their light-blocking capability, they also perform a thermal regulation function.

The incoming heat is trapped between the window and the curtain made of blackout fabric. This will significantly reduce the temperature of community spaces and lecture halls during the summer months.

The light-blocking curtain can be moved by means of theatrical rail systems

Types of movement:

  • Manual movement
  • Manual movement with ropes
  • Motorized movement
