These fabrics are commonly woven from natural and/or synthetic yarns and then topically treated with a flame retardant chemical so that the material meets fire safety codes.

used for the “bleed-through” effect

Flame retardant classic theater Black Sharkstooth Scrim, 8 point, 2 thread open-weave. The chosen material for backdrops used for disappearing/reappearing acts on stage by manipulating stage lighting, also known as the “bleed-through” effect.

This netting can both reflect and transmit light and can be used to project abstract images. The scrim rectangular weave is dense enough to be dye-painted without altering the scrim unique capabilities, making it a very versatile piece of stage scenery.


When the right lighting effects are projected into this fabric scenes and performers appear and disappear like magic.  If a scrim is lit from the front at a highly oblique angle, and the portion of the stage behind it is kept dark, the scrim will appear opaque rendering the scene behind invisible. However, when the scene behind the scrim is illuminated and the lighting in front of the scrim is dimmed, the scrim becomes invisible, revealing the upstage scene. Using double layers of scrims creates a “moiré” effect.

Cut yardage fabric may be folded to ship via UPS. Full bales ship via LTL freight.

FR Sharkstooth Scrim meets the minimum requirements of flame resistance established by the California State Fire Marshall for products identified in Section 13115, California Health and Safety Code.
