Horizon material

One of the basic assets of theatres, television and film studios is the horizon material that provides the background!

Are you looking for a wide, seamless fabric? You just found it!

In many areas where horizon materials are used, it is an important criterion to apply these materials without seams or with as few joints as possible.

Since these backgrounds usually have to provide a homogeneous surface, it is often prescribed not to have anything that would “divert the attention of the viewer”.

The application of the horizon material has many advantages

Invisibility: The horizon material provides a homogeneous background for actors, which helps hide the fittings and staff behind the set.

Sound absorption: The horizon material aids in the absorption of echoes, which can improve sound quality.

Low weight: The horizon material is light, making transport and installation easier.

Versatility: The horizon material is a versatile fabric used in various different applications, including theatres, movies, television programmes and concerts.

Flame resistance: The horizon material is flame-resistant, which helps protect the stage and the staff from fires.

The horizon material is a limitless creative surface

Sometimes the background may be an integral part of the set, or may even stand out from it. This is usually achieved by painting or printing the background material.

It is also important that the image is not disturbed by one - or even several - longitudinal seams.
