Seven Steps for Success For Fabric Ceiling Draping Installation

Here are seven steps that will increase the likelihood of success in transforming sparse venue space into an intimate and elegant setting:

1.  Determine how installation friendly the venue space is for ceiling fabric draping by observing metal attachment points, ceiling obstacles, ceiling height, fire codes and time availability for installation.

2.  Develop your draping design plan by reviewing ceiling draping photos on the internet and other sources.

3.  Request a room diagram from the venue and determine how much fabric you need using Fabric Draper’s measuring guidelines.

4.  Upon receipt of your order check for quantity and color correctness.

5.  Cut fabric panels according to your design plan.

6.  Install fabric panels using vendor instruction, or in the case of Fabric Draper.com, our installation video located on our Home Page of our web.

7.  Evaluate how your design looks and don’t be afraid to make adjustments.

Upon completion stand back and admire your creative accomplishment, and enjoy the savings you realized.

 

 

No! It’s All About the Magnet Holder

Last month we posted a blog entitled “It’s All About the Magnets”.  After much internal discussion we concluded that no, it is not all about the magnets.  It’s all about the Magnet Holder.  So we thought we would clarify that point with today’s blog post.

As we discuss on Fabric Draper.com, the Magnet Holder holds one magnet in place to magnet holderallow the magnet to click onto the metal on the ceiling. The Magnet Holder screws into place on a magnet extension pole or most threaded poles (even a broom handle).  The Magnet Holder also facilitates the removal of the magnet when you are ready to take down the ceiling fabric draping, paper lanterns or whatever decor you have hang.  The corkscrew of the Magnet Holder hooks the magnet ring and brings it down safely.

The significance of the Magnet Holder is that it facilitates the attachment of the magnet to the ceiling metal while you stand on the ground, NO LADDER!!!!!.  There are other magnetized hanging systems on the market however they require a ladder for installation.  So while all elements in Fabric Draper.com’s fabric hanging kit play a role and are important, it’s the magnet holder that is the key to hanging fabric, lanterns and other decor safely, quickly and as a result less cost to you.  The Magnet Holder is truly our most valuable player!!

You can see this fabulous little device in action on our instructional video at http://youtu.be/7jDM5dTH_kw or on Fabric Draper.com’s home page.

Easy Ceiling Paper Lantern Installation

Fabric Draper.com’s easy 3 step fabric ceiling draping system was developed to simplifyPaper Ceiling Lanterns the task of hanging beautiful ceiling draping quickly, safely and inexpensively.  Our system, however, can be used to hang any ceiling decor.  One such example is paper lanterns.  Paper lanterns create a festive ambiance for your event.  When we hang paper lanterns onto the ceiling we use our 3 step system.  If you have watched our fabric ceiling draping video you are familiar with the 3 step ceiling draping installation process.  The installation process is the same with ceiling paper lanterns except the lantern is attached to the magnet using a monofilament fishing line.  With the monofilament fishing line you can control the height at which the lanterns are hung.  If you are only hanging ceiling lanterns you can use Fabric Draper.com’s single Magnet Holder since each lantern will be hung individually.

Look for more information from Fabric Draper.com regarding Ceiling Lantern installation systems in the coming weeks.  In the interim, you can hang ceiling lanterns using Fabric Draper.com’s Ring Magnets, Single Magnet holder and Magnet Pole (or your own pole). Fabric Draper.com will include paper ceiling lanterns and LED lights in our kits soon.
