With theatre effect materials you can conjure up spaces according to the fashion of previous centuries, or even the retro-inspired bars of the 1980’s!

With our special Gerriets[1] fabrics nothing can get in your way, literally nothing is impossible.

Our high-gloss or specially structured materials, in addition to their B1 flame-retardant function, are available - unlike fabrics from other manufacturers - in extra widths of even 300 centimetres.

  • Our fabric called MIRAGE, for example, can easily form a special surface with its fantastic structure.
  • With our fabrics titled OPAL and GARNET, you can display spectacular wall surfaces or even curtained spaces.
  • Our special duvetyn[2] fabric, STARDUST, might display a starry sky with its elegance, with the appropriate lighting.
  • Our CONTRA fabric with its unique structure also has limitless opportunities for the most diverse ideas.

The duvetyn material is often used in the theatre environment

  • For sound absorption: Due to their thick texture, duvetyn curtains are perfectly suitable for noise reduction, reducing distracting noises and echoes on stage or in the cinema room.
  • For darkening: Due to the density and thickness of the duvetyn material, it has excellent light-blocking properties. This allows you to easily control the visibility of the displayed image on the stage or in the cinema room with the help of duvetyn curtains.
  • For spectacle: Duvetyn fabric is often used on stage for spectacular effects due to its high-quality appearance.
