The rental price for drape varies depending on a variety of factors including: choice of drape material–fabric type, height of drape panel, linear feet required, and whether labor and hardware are needed.

How tall can your drape be ground supported?

Typically, up to 16’ of drape can be ground supported from a temporary structure (pipe and bases). If it’s taller than 16’ it typically hangs from a structural piece of the building or has reinforced foundational support, from the ground up. With industry-standard structural support, we can install drape up to 22’ high.

Each venue (ballroom, barn, tent, country club, arena, office space, etc.) is unique, so, there are no set prices.

Estimates for ceiling treatments vary based on many factors including: available rigging points, whether there is a need for a scissor lift, design and size of the desired ceiling treatment, fabric selection, lighting integration, etc.
