A: Specialty Theatre recommends hanging your stage curtains, wall drapes or backdrops for a few days prior to your performance, concert or show. This should allow the wrinkles and folds to "hang" out of the fabric much like you might do with a wool suit. The warmer the temperature, the quicker this usually happens. The weight of the fabric usually pulls the wrinkles out pretty effectively.
A: Here's our guidance on how to care for stage drapes and theatre curtains that have been treated with fungicide to help inhibit the formation of mould and mildew:
A: NDFR stands for Non Durably Flame Retarded. These fabrics are chemically treated with a water soluble retarding solution. All fabrics classed as NDFR will withstand at least 5 water free dry cleaning cycles without effecting flame retardancy. If these fabrics are wetted in any way, it is essential to retreat the fabric to meet flammability requirements.
Q: Can theatre curtains be treated for flame retarding in situ without removing them from the venue?
