The ShowTex story began in 1983 with two adventurous young men pursuing excellence in stagecraft and light design. Their intense quest for developing and improving flame retardant soft goods and curtain motion systems for the entertainment industry was generated by the exciting and endless possibilities created by combining fabric and light. Passion for innovation translated into partnerships with some of the world’s top theatre and event productions.
Offices around the globe now provide ShowTex with more than 150 years of professionalism and craftsmanship. Devoted engineers share their expertise with weavers, finishers, light designers, and colour consultants from all over the world to develop innovative products that set new industry standards. ShowTex salespeople know the collection inside and out and together with the specialized drapery manufacturing department and veteran installation team, they get the job done right and on time.
Inspiration comes in many forms. From expert advice, custom manufacture of draperies and tracks, to technical support and installation. Anywhere in the world. That’s what innovative partners do. Safety is more than just a word, it’s a promise. ShowTex is committed to providing the most advanced flame retardant fabrics. That’s why they invent them themselves! The ShowTex collection includes theater curtains and masking drapes, expo and scenic fabrics, canvases, scrims, stage netting, mirror foils, projection screens, dance floors, metallic fabrics, ShowLED starcloths, curtains tracks and advanced motion control systems.
