Masking, blackout and acoustic fabrics are the ideal way to adjust acoustics and light in a theater or venue.

Light masking and blackout curtains partially or completely block atmospheric lighting to create a complete black box. The fabric’s ability to absorb light and remain truly black is key.
Our acoustic fabrics are designed to improve sound quality and reduce reverberation levels, but apart from absorbing sound, they also allow for an element of acoustic ‘tuning’ within a room.

Curtains can be custom dyed to any colour.

A colourful range of cotton, polyester, and mohair stage velvets, in a variety of weights and finishes. Manufactured into luxurious front curtains and valences, borders, legs, stage skirting and backdrops, they serve a decorative and a technical function on stage. ShowTex velour innovations include the Ultrablack velvet range and the collection of ecological Oeko-Tex 100 velvets.

The curtains can be embossed with logos and historical patterns and custom dyed to any colour.

Add colour & texture with our display & decorative fabrics and non wovens for temporary or permanent use.
