Pipe and Drape Displays: How to Order and Measure

Pipe and Drape Displays: How to Order and Measure

A pipe and drape display can have a variety of uses. These drape setups can help define a trade show booth, provide privacy screening for changing rooms and voting booths, or be used as entertainment backdrops.

Pipe and drape setups come in many configurations. MVP Visuals offers these trade show drapes in basic polyester, flame retardant polyester, or blackout materials. We also offer them with or without print to custom suit your needs. And, of course, both your trade show drapes and their hardware come in various sizes.

Drapes are available in standard sizes of 95" tall for 8' pipe systems and 35" tall for 3' pipe systems. Pipe Stand Uprights are available fixed in 3', 6', or 8' configurations and adjustable in 3-5', 4-7', 5-8', 6-10', or 7-12'.

Because there are so many configurations, it may be difficult to decide which pipe and drape setup is right for you.

Here are some tips to order and measure your pipe and drape display with ease:

1. Pick a Fabric: Want to block out light for a private booth or changing room? Blackout velour drapes are your best choice. Keeping your drapes near light fixtures? Opt for flame retardant polyester. Or, just stick with basic polyester for a simple, more affordable option.

2. Choose a Design: You may want a simple drape setup without any print. That's fine. We offer  many colors that will suit your needs. Or, for a trade show or retail event, upload your logo for a full color dye sublimation that will enhance your name and draw in customers.

3. Know Your Size: Depending on your pipe and drape configuration, you may need multiple sizes for both your drapes and your hardware. Decide what your layout will look like - or call us to help you design a layout - and base your sizing on that.
