ShowTex is a worldwide leader in inventing, manufacturing and installing innovative flame retardant fabrics, tracks and motion control systems for achieving the creative vision of theatre, event and entertainment professionals.
The first-of-its-kind theme park in the Middle East, VR Park, is designed to blur the lines between perception and reality with a combination of augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and thrilling rides.
In the visual centre of the two-storey attraction, underneath an impressive StretchTulle ceiling, is the "Burj Drop" simulating a breathtaking fall down the Burj Khalifa. The grey elastic mesh creates a mind-blowing upside-down effect by covering the roof in colourful projections of the Dubai skyline.
No less than 1750 square metres of StretchTulle, split into 7 panels, act as a gigantic see-through projection surface. The fabric screen stretches seamlessly up to almost 8 m wide and allows for ultimate flexibility and amazing special effects.
The specially designed Mesh Fabric Profile keeps the flame-retardant scrim easily in place. By stretching the tulle over the pins of the custom comb profile, the mesh ceiling was up and running in no time!
Apart from the impressive projection ceiling, ShowTex also supplied black Molton CS masking drapes to cover the walls surrounding the entertainment venue and some smaller pieces of black StretchTulle to neatly finish the remaining open areas in the ceiling.
