There are a few things to note before building your stage backdrop:
-Everything should be built using no tools.
-You will have extra parts, those are spares inn case parts are lost in the future.
-Your first row is the most important row to setup, make sure your first row is level horizontally and the rest of the stage backdrop build will be easy.
-If you are using Pipe and Drape, ensure it is properly setup, designed, and sandbagged to hold the additional weight of the Pro Scenes Panels.
-If you are renting stage backdrop panels, please return your products in the same boxes they were shipped in. Please also, ensure that no hardware makes it into the panel boxes as that can cause damage in shipping. Damage is no fun!
Use captive 4 way tie connectors and 2 way tie connectors to attach to truss, pipes, or line sets. You will build your first row of panels from these connectors.

You can utilize our Pipe and Drape hangers to hang on top of standard pipe and drape. They are made to gently hug your pipe cross bars without damaging your drape or pipes. Our pipe and drape hangers are bendable and can bend to fit larger pipes. Make certain to bend all clamps back to their original shape before attaching connectors. Once your pipe and drape hangers are hanging from your pipe and drape, attach 2 way connectors (on the edges) and 4 way connectors (in the center) to your Pipe and Drape hangers using the provided black cap nuts. Make sure to tighten the cap nuts securely.

Next, attach your first row of design panels to your connectors. Simply slide your panel over the captive screws of the connectors and tighten the connectors and panels together with white nylon cap nuts. Fully hang each panel before moving on to the next one. Make sure your hangers are level to ensure a seamless build all the way to the floor. Making sure this first row is flat will make your stage backdrop build incredibly easy.

Once your first row of panels is completed, you will add a row of connectors on the bottom half of the top row of design panels. Utilize 2 way connectors on the edges of your design and 4 way connectors in the center. Once this row of connectors is added every bolt hole in the design panels should be filled.

For the next step, hang additional design panels to the connectors that were just added. The top of these design panels will connect to the bottom of the previous row of connectors. Attach these in the same way using nylon cap nuts to secure the panel to the captive bolt of the connector.

Next, repeat steps 3-4 until you reach your desired height. Most panel types can build to a height of over 24 feet. If you have a specific height limitation question, feel free to contact us at Modscenes.com and we can give you exact specifications.

To finish the last row of your stage backdrop, add 2 way connectors across the bottom bolt holes of your backdrop panels. These keep the backdrop looking seamless and finished.

Next, add a single loose bolt and cap nut to the bottom corners of your backdrop. This is key to making the backdrop look uniform. The bolt should be 5/8 inch in length to make the process easy. These are included in a small bag labelled loose bolt sets.
