Polyester - Flame Retardent Stage Curtains

Soft Handle plain dyed flame retardant dimout curtain fabric.

Our favourite dimout curtain fabric. This is our go to choice for simple curtains and blinds. It is an amazing fabric that is of the highest quality, it looks and feels great. It has a beautiful drape and means it works perfectly for stage curtains it is a medium weight fabric and when combined with our blackout lining gives the very best finish to any stage.

Direct Fabrics have used this fabric across the country for the front of house stage curtains, backdrops, tabs and more. It is an incredible price so you get the very best finish and exactly what you are looking for.

 

Stage Curtains Specification

  • For our stage curtains we manufacture them to your exact specification, but an industry standard would to 1.5x fullness of the track width rounded to the nearest width. An example of this for a 500cm curtain track we use (500x1.5=750) / (fabric width 140cm = 5.35 so we use 6 widths of fabric to make the curtains. If your track was 450cm we would use 5 widths of fabric. So we try to make the curtains fit as closely as possible.
  • The heading for our curtains is a snap hook which clips through your track loops, we can also offer tie tops and a standard pencil pleat heading, check below for more information or contact the team and we will be happy to help.
  • We use a chain weight in the hems to make them drape perfectly.

Knowledge, quality and fast delivery sums it all up. From the start the sales team were knowledgeable about their products especially about the stage curtains. They understood our requirements and advised on the fabric type and lining. Samples were swiftly sent out with a leaflet explaining the headings and the types of lining. They were patient while we measured and remeasured to ensure we ordered the correct size. The curtains arrived within 2 weeks of ordering. Not only did we order stage curtains but curtains for our exit doors. Again they were helpful advising on the right curtain rails to purchase and the curtains arrived swiftly. I feel they were let down by their delivery company who deliver early morning without prior notification. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

From the initial process of sourcing samples, gaining a quote, applying for funding and the patience of kind staff at Direct Fabrics, as we awaited the go-ahead to place an order was all superb. We really appreciate the price remaining as per the initial quote, when it took more than 3 months to gain the go-ahead from our funders.

The website gives very clear guidance to measure accurately.

The made to measure, fire retardant, lined and weighted stage curtains are beautiful. Fit perfect, and are now hanging ‘dressed’, awaiting removal of the ties to reveal the beautiful folds. Holding on to my own patience before releasing the ties to photograph!

With matching tie-backs too, our village hall stage looks quite magnificent.

The curtains are made in Mimas, colour Royal. Unfolding from the packaging, I had expected them to need a press, which would have been a huge task, given the size for stage curtains. No pressing required, they drape beautifully straight from the packaging.

Would I recommend Direct Fabrics… ABSOLUTELY, huge thanks to you all.

I needed help ordering over £1,000 worth of fire retardant curtains for my village hall & the customer service that I received was fantastic. We checked & double checked everything together & when the curtains arrived they were really good quality & very well made. They have a lovely selection of fire retardant fabric. Would highly recommend Direct Fabrics.

I dealt with Mia, who was incredibly helpful and knowledgable. Several samples were sent out to me and curtains were eventually ordered for the village hall.
They arrived quickly by courier. The quality was outstanding and a bonus that they had curtain hooks already in them.

How to Measure For Curtains, Blinds and Tracks.



Pen and Paper

For recording your
measurements.

Helper

Someone to assist if your
windows are large .

Metal Tape Measure

As this will allow you to get a
rigid full length measurement.





Make sure your curtain tracks and poles are fitted in the position you want.


Choose the type of curtains that you would like and how you want to hang your curtains. See our heading styles guide


We recommend fitting your hardware first before measuring, this avoids any issues with not getting the perfect fit.

 

Measure your window using our main guide. Quick summary below. Remember wave, pinch, and designer headings require slightly different measurement

Measure in 3 places and take the shortest drop – Floors and ceilings can run out.

Double / Triple check your measurements

how to measure for curtains



Choosing your Curtain Track Width

The width of the curtain track should extend past your window this allows for the curtains to stack back away from your window and allow light in.

Measure your recess and then add on 15cm on either side. For acoustics , we recommend further to fully cover the window and the surrounding area. In our test we added an additional 30cm to the width and also made the curtain floor length.

Wave curtains, for every 100cm of track the curtains will stack circa *18cm

Eyelet curtains, they will stack back circa 10cm per *70cm of track width

Pencil Pleat will stack approx 25% of the track width. eg. 210cm track will stack 52.5%

* all dependent on thickness of fabric



Selecting your Curtain Drop

Where to Measure From for Different Type of Curtains

How to Measure for Blinds going Inside the Recess

How to measure for blinds inside thet recess

  • Measure the exact width of the recess in three places; at the top of the recess, in the centre of the recess and near the bottom - then take the  smallest size.
  • Measure the exact drop of the recess in three places on the left hand side of the recess, in the centre of the recess and on the right hand side of the recess - then take the smallest size.
  • We will take one cm off the finished width size you have given us, to allow for the blind to pull up and down easily.
  • Double check your measurements
  • Cord Safety - Mounting Height - We ask for the mounting height of your blinds to allow for the cord to be 150cm off the ground. If mounting at 210cm This is what you enter in the Fitting height box. We make a deduction to ensure the cord is 150cm from the floor. Thus the cord loop will be 60cm

How to Measure Outside of the Recess


  • Measure the recess in 3 places on the width and also 3 places on the drop. Take the widest measurement.
  • Measure the width of the actual recess plus an additional amount – Usually from 7cm-15cm whatever you think looks appropriate. This is for overlap.
  • Measure the exact drop of the recess. The blind would be fitted above the recess, so check the space above and add an amount on to the drop – usually from 7-15cm
  • These sizes you have taken will be the size of the finished blind.

  • Double check your measurements
  • Cord Safety - Mounting Height - We ask for the mounting height of your blinds to allow for the cord to be 150cm off the ground. If mounting at 210cm This is what you enter in the fitting height box. We make a deduction to ensure the cord is 150cm from the floor. Thus the cord loop will be 60cm



Cubicle Tracks you have to measure with right angles from wall to wall where you want the track to go

Draw your room on a piece of paper with a sky view

Now measure from the wall to wall for straight tracks,

L Shape Tracks Measure to a point on the floor and mark with a piece of tape. Then for the other sides measure from the other wall to that point.

Always check for obstructions and fitting issues you may need to work around
