Borders & Valance Curtains

Our Borders & Valance Curtains Service

The Valance curtain is the horizontal strip of fabric that spans the entire width of the stage, completing the frame of the proscenium. The Valance curtain is predominantly constructed using the same fabric, colour, pleating and style of the grand drape and legs to create a consistent and complete aesthetic for your performing space. The role of the Valance curtain is to shield any hung rigging or lighting from the audience’s vision as to not hamper their immersive theatre experience.

Similar in style and purpose to the Valance, the Border curtain is also a horizontal piece of fabric that spans the width of the stage however, the Border curtain is situated behind the main valance acting as an additional screen of rigging, tracking, systems and light configurations for the audience. The height and drop of both the Valance and Border are critical to ensuring optimal sight lines for the audience and will vary from stage to stage.
