As the name suggests, the masking curtains hide or obscure objects and block light.
A variety of theatre fabrics can be used for masking curtains depending on the masking requirements as well as the desired appearance. Masking curtains will sometimes be lined to enhance their function.
We suggested using high quality wool theatre fabric for most applications. Wool theatre fabric looks good, lasts for years and meets most fire codes and regulations. Our wool theatre fabric comes from Specialty Theatre Supplies.
Masking curtains can be hung from a track, rigging bar, screen frame or in some cases simply stapled to a bulkhead. Maskings can be fixed or movable.
We manufacture a wide variety of movable top, bottom and side masking systems for cinema. Please see our section on cinema masking systems for more information.
