tri-fold flat showing folds tri-fold flat, front view
Flats are your walls to confine the action or the infinity to open your stage into the universe. If you paint jail bars or cabin walls or the inside of a cave; your actors have a closed acting space. But they can also include a window to anywhere or they can be the sky or the forest or... you get the picture. Also useful to mask an offstage area or provide on stage changing area or for character hiding places.

Our Trifold Flats use dual acting hinges, so they can open in either direction and stand freely without clamping. They are canvas on both sides, so both sides are front sides. There are endless shapes to design and quickly change for the next scene.



Painted set pieces are treated with Rosco P-50 Flame Retardant

Can be ordered unpainted, or painted UIL Medium Gray
