What is Pipe and Drape?
Pipe and Drape consists of aluminum pipes as a framework from which to hang drapes and create what is called a backwall or backdrop. Backdrops can be positioned together to create booths, divide a room, or what we like to call “define a space.” The popularity of the system comes from the facts that it is easy to setup, take down, and store/transport, and remains the most cost-effective way to create and define space and to add elements of beauty, marketing, or simply elegant room division to any number of events.
