The making of the Fly and swag curtain is identical to that of the Swag curtain.
It is normally made with vertical fullness and each of the two halves, with central opening, is equipped with a cable with guide-rings sewn on the back.
Like the Swag opening system, the Fly and swag opening uses a fly facility to raise the curtain's tails, but the structure carrying the curtain is raised simultaneously with the tails with a harmonious movement.
The need for lifting makes the Fly and swag curtain less suitable than the Swag curtain for low-height stages.
A Fly and swag opening system can theoretically always perform the Swag opening movement as well, it is sufficient to deactivate the connection between the lifting device of the tails and the lifting device of the supporting structure.
In cases in which it is possible to do the opposite and operate the lifting while leaving the tails immobile, the mechanical system can work as a Fly opening with curtain with vertical fullness.
The Fly and swag opening is also compatible with the Traveller opening system, with which it can be combined.
