Theater rigging safety is serious business and we can help you maintain, repair or replace your damaged stage rigging equipment.
Do you regularly inspect and maintain your stage rigging equipment? Can you tell whether you stage equipment is in safe working conditions? Are the equipment operators trained in the proper operation and handling of the rigging equipment?
Poorly maintained rigging equipment can pose a serious risk. Protect your investment by performing a periodical stage rigging inspection. Make theater safety a priority. This will help ensure your performers and theater equipment operator safety and will reduce your liability risk.
S&K Theatrical Draperies, Inc. will send an experienced rigging technician to perform a thorough theater rigging equipment inspection and evaluation. Our technician will start with a visual inspection of the accessible parts of the rigging system components, which will help identify unsafe and hazardous conditions. The age, condition and proper equipment installation will be assessed. Functioning equipment will be operated and all pertinent information will be documented.
Once the onsite inspection is completed, a written report including photographs of damaged, unsafe or malfunctioning rigging will be prepared. The report will include recommended actions to improve rigging performance and/or suggested repairs or upgrades.
The duration of the rigging inspection and associated fees vary and with the extent of your theatrical equipment.
Annual inspections and maintenance are recommended to help prevent accidents and protect the integrity of your performers, faculty, students and audience.
DRAPERY REPAIR, CLEANING & RE-FLAME PROOFING
Properly maintaining your theater draperies will prolong their lifespan.
S&K Theatrical Draperies, Inc. offers off-site drapery cleaning and flameproofing services. The curtains will be removed from your facilities and brought to our shop for repair, cleaning and re-flame proofing as needed. Chemically made flame retardant fabrics will require the Flameproofing chemicals be reapplied after washing the fabric with a soap and water solution.
The Flameproofing treatment is done by spraying the curtains with a Flameproofing chemical. The appropriate flameproofing product required for your curtains is determined by testing a sample of your material and or determining fabric yarn composition. Note that the FR chemicals may not adhere to some synthetic fabric blends, rendering the material not FR treatable. For that reason, we recommend fabric samples are sent to us for testing.
Do you need a custom price quote?
There are several variables that affect pricing and for that reason, all jobs are custom priced. In order to get pricing we require some basic information as listed below:
Photos of your space showing drapery conditions, especially when there are tears and damages needing repairs.
Curtain quantities and dimensions (i.e: 2 curtains 20’ high x 30’ wide)
Curtain finish (flat or pleated)
Curtain layers (i.e: single-layered or unlined, lined or self-lined, 3 layers, etc)
Fabric types (i.e: Cotton Velour face fabric, lined with cotton Ranger lining)
Fabric width (i.e: Velour Memorable 54 inches wide)
The number of fabric panels sewn vertically (i.e: 5 panels of 54” wide Velour Memorable joined together making a curtain).
