We have supplied this area to help give a general understanding of the principles, construction and  operation of stage and theatre curtains and stage curtain tracking systems. It is hoped that it will provide some useful information to help lay out a stage or studio. Or at least, give some idea what should be provided.

STE / Theatrequip also offers the ability to assist in the design and other specifications requirements that your theatre, stage or other performance project may have. For further information please contact us.
