Schools and Universities
Universities and Schools have relied on Drapery Industries for decades.
Custom Shades, Blinds and Stage Curtains
Schools and Universities have relied on Drapery Industries for decades to provide the highest quality products and service. The process usually begins with an on-site visit by one of our project managers to review the project in detail and determine the best possible solution. We then see the project through its production phase in our own factory. And when it comes to final completion our expert team of installer/technicians assure our customers of a safe installation and an attractive window treatment.
Institutional Window and Stage Products Overview
Our BlueShade® brand roller shades are now a standard in many institutions. Because they provide a combination of durability and serviceability, our shades are a favorite of both specifiers and maintenance staff. And we have the largest selection of screens in the market place to provide just the right color and openness factor.

Blinds can be a quick, cost effective way to cover a window. These include both vertical and horizontal blinds. In addition to our own brand, we carry other leading brands such as Bali, Graber and Hunter Douglas.
Stage Curtains have always been long term investments. That’s why schools have relied on Drapery Industries to help them assess all aspects of the stage curtain – including tracks, piping and of course, the curtains themselves. It is always our pleasure to educate our customers as to the best possible materials, to always service the tracks if needed and to replace anything that does not work well or is unsafe.
