Scrims

Theatrical scrims are predominately constructed using a gauze material known as sharkstooth. They are woven with a vertical rectangular pattern.  Sharkstooth scrim is woven on a 30' wide loom. Because of it's lightweight and excellent opacity and transparency, scrim is ideally suited for theatrical use.  However, these properties increase the cost considerably. Standard colors are white, black, and sky blue.

Schell Scenic scrims can be rented in the following sizes:  
30'w x 16'h, 40'w x 20'h, and 60'w x 30'h.
