Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church
Church founder and builder Thomas Simon called us to get some help bringing this project to life. Little did we know it was going to be such a wonderful project to work on. We provided with preliminary budgeting pricing and after a site survey trip we received the order. All curtains were made from Synthetic Encore Velour 22oz IFR, and the swags and traveler included gold bullion fringe. The main curtain also includes a custom cross appliqué made in two pieces so to open and gather to the sides with the curtain.

OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL HELP
We were honored to work directly with builder Thomas Simon in the design, manufacture and installation of the custom theater style curtains for Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Chaldean Church in Orangevale, California. Our challenge was to create a custom curtain set that would hide the altar area before mass while enhancing the building architecture. The main traveler curtains also feature a large cross applique made from Gloss Satin Inherently Fire Retardant material. When the curtains are opened the cross splits in half and travels with the curtain to the sides of the opening. The curtain track and rigging hardware are concealed between a double set of curtain swag valance. All curtains were manufactured from Encore Velour 22oz IFR color Cabernet. Additionally we installed french pleated curtains on the side openings leading to the dressing rooms and storage areas. The main curtain runs on a BESTEEL® 170 Series curtain track. To make it even more interesting, all support hardware and curtains were installed on a bowed ceiling. For that reason all the swags had to be custom shaped to replicate the ceiling arch. Curtains, track and labor were covered by our standard 1 year manufacturer warranty. Do you need new church stage curtains, theater curtain track or projection screens for your church event? Don't hesitate to contact us. We would love to hear from you!
