Each year as the summer draws to a close, the Billie Jean King Tennis Center in Queens, New York welcomes professional tennis players as well as hundreds of thousands of visitors to the U.S. Open Tennis Championships. This two-week event is the fourth and final of the Grand Slam tournaments and is watched by sports fans from around the world - both courtside and on television. A major company in the sports broadcasting industry provides power and set-design support at the Tennis Center, and they contracted with us here at Deal Rite to fabricate several rain curtains for use around the venue.
Rain curtains provide a creative visual backdrop and are lightweight and easy to transport to short-term events. For this project, we manufactured several rain curtains with various sizes using 20 gauge clear vinyl, a flexible and durable material that stands up to heavy use. To provide a uniform look, the rain curtains all featured a 4" white vinyl top, a grey bottom, integrated weight grommets, and a chain for stability.
As a major manufacturer of industrial curtains, the client was confident in our fabrication capabilities and trusted us to deliver the rain curtains on time and at an affordable price. They arrived at the company's location in North Carolina in plenty of time to be transported to the Billie Jean King Tennis Center and get set up before the opening match.
