IPS Pipe Drape BayIPS fully adjustable Wentex Pipe & Drape system is ready to hire - now with Black & White drapes

 The Wentex Pipe & Drape system has been a popular part of the IPS hire stock for some time now, and following much research and development a custom made Black Wool Serge (BWS) drape has now been added to the range. Measuring 3m x 4m, the drapes have Velcro to all sides, so they can be configured as either a 3m wide cloth with a 4m drop, or a 4m wide cloth with a 3m drop – and all cloths can now be joined together. Velcro fastenings are used to attach the material to the Wentex framework, making installation quick and easy.

The IPS Wentex system comprises of adjustable height upright poles with weighted bases that are interconnected with adjustable width cross bars. Two uprights and a crossbar create a bay, and then additional crossbar and uprights can be added to create all kinds of shapes as required. All the parts are available to hire individually, so it is possible to configure systems however needed for events – popular set ups include room divide walls, masking panels and backdrop supports. The uprights can be adjusted from 1.8m to 4.2m high, and the crossbar sections are adjustable between 1.2m to 1.8m or 1.8m to 3m wide. We suggest that some flexibility is allowed within the system for ease of assembly – so don’t use all sections to their maximum extents. Also, when working with walls that have a long straight run, or are liable to be knocked, additional stage weights on the bases add extra stability.

Black White Wentex Pipe Drape WallAs well as the BWS drapes, IPS also stock white drapes for a different look. These drapes measure 3m wide with a 3m drop – and look especially effective when combined with uplighters. IPS LED Starcloth can also be used with the Wentex Pipe & Drape system by attaching using cable ties. ShowLED Classic LED Starcloth is available with a 3m drop in either 6.6m or 12m lengths and the ShowLED Chameleon RGB LED Starcloth is available with a 4m drop in 10m lengths, and is a quick and easy way to transform a room or event space.


Pipe and Drape systems are available as dry hire items, or can be supplied as a fully installed solution. IPS also stocks a wide range of other draping and rigging solutions, including Kabuki Drop reveal systems – and a huge stock of Staging, Lighting, Video, Sound & Power equipment.
