Walnut Elementary School

Working as a subcontractor for Turner Construction, S&K Theatrical Draperies, Inc. manufactured and installed a motorized front traveler curtain at Walnut Elementary School. The school located in Turlock, northern California was so pleased with the result that came back for more. On a second installation trip we provided with 3 sets of masking legs, a rear traveler, one masking border and a Muslin cyclorama.

Main Drape

The main traveler drape was manufactured from Cotton Velour 25oz, shirr pleated with 75% added fullness. This bi-part curtain traverses the stage on a 170 curtain track, motorized with a No. 934 AUTODRAPE® Curtain Machine.

Main and Cyclorama

The front traveler drape opens, revealing the seamless muslin cyclorama. 

Installing the hang points

Masking Drapes

The side legs were mounted on No. 6 Rotodraper® pivot arms, which provide really practical side entrances to the stage.

Hanging the Legs

The cyclorama was manufactured seamless from extra-wide muslin fabric, and installed on a one-way-draw BESTEEL® 170 Series curtain track.
