Gerriets introduces 40’ wide inherently flame-retardant canvas

April 3rd, 2018 / By: / Industry News, News

Gerriets International has introduced a 40’ wide inherently flame-retardant canvas, woven from high quality Trevira CS polyester. 40’ high seamless cycloramas, drops and projection surfaces are now available in a heavy-duty IFR material. The 9 oz/yd2 IFR Super Canvas CS allows large theaters and opera houses to have seamless IFR soft goods with a long working life that can be cleaned without losing flammability. Unlike cotton based fabrics, curtains made from the IFR canvas are well suited for high-humidity climates and temporary use outdoors due to the moisture resistance of Trevira CS fibers. A bolt length of 55 yards make seamless IFR projection surfaces and backdrops up to 40’ high and 164’ wide possible.

The canvas can be purchased by the yard or made into custom sized seamless curtains, drops, cycs, digitally printed back drops or projection screens at any of the Gerriets workshops worldwide.
