Smart – Simple – Safe
Versatop™ products introduce a revolutionary Pipe & Base system for any event. Time-saving and innovative solutions, such as versatile adapters, help to work safely, organised and efficiently.
Versatop has revolutionised the world of pipe & drape systems with innovative product design. With the Pipe & Base 2.0® system, there is now a product that is stronger than the old hook and lock system and also has a longer lifespan. It is faster to set up with easy-to-use connections and accessories, saving time and money.
Drape Support Rods
Horizontal support, telescoping and fixed
The robust design of the horizontal support 2.0® telescopic rod is legendary.
At the heart of the Versatop Pipe & Base 2.0® system is the unique “ball and socket” design.
The telescopic girders fitted with the uniquely designed Ball Cap™ allow users to connect system components quickly and safely. With no hooks or sharp edges, the top connection saves time; less damage during set-up and dismantling. Even under the most bizarre conditions, the almost indestructible Ball Cap™ continues to perform year after year. Girders are also available in fixed sizes.
Drape support rods are also available in fixed sizes
-All ends are rounded to prevent snags.
-Ball Cap™ design offers the best shaping of any available product.
-Robust spring knob stopper for quick length selection.
-Low-profile steel rivets at Ball Caps™ are standard
-Lifetime warranty under normal use.
Uprights with Glide-Lock™
After revolutionising a dated product with the patented Pipe & Base 2.0® system, we set our sights on other parts of the old system that required improvements.
Thus was born the remarkable Glide-LOCK™, telescopic uprights. A complete makeover of the old collar. The patented design provides a solution to several problems that needed improvement. Check out the benefits of uprights with Glide-LOCK™.
- Smooth, patented, slip-locking mechanism that makes lifting easy, with a strong lock that does not damage the tubes.
- One-button release, negating the collar bottlenecks of the old locking system.
- This one-button locking system allows the user to better hold the upright when raising and lowering it.
- The lift type release™ gives better control when lowering the telescopic upright.
- No more open space between collar and tube, means no more entrapment and/or blisters.
- This new design prevents the inner tubes from sliding outward, even at the 45-degree angle.
- Equipped with Versatop 2.0 Crown™.
- Quick “top down” connections.
- Compatible with all Pipe & Base 2.0® accessories.
- No slots. So no hook damage.
Building at height without standing on a ladder!
INVERSION-SERIE MET GLIDE LOCK™
Introducing the Inversion Series™ of telescoping upright poles. Using our patent-pending Glide-Lock™ system, this novel product allows users to set these upright poles inverted. The result is a system that allows a “from the ground up” extension of the upright to the required height, without standing on a ladder. The unique design allows the user to stand firmly on the ground in a safe lifting position while raising and lowering the telescoping pole.
Often referred to as the workhorse of the trade show decorator business, fixed uprights are used by the hundreds of thousands for exhibit booths around the world. Our fixed uprights with Versatop™ connections offer a vast improvement of the conventional system. By allowing a multitude of money-making accessories to be securely attached to our poles, users now have the ability to upsell easy-to-install signage, decor and lighting options to exhibitors.

The Versatop Sidearm™ is the best solution to safely and easily install multiple drape lines to a single upright. Molded as a structurally reinforced body with an extended Crown™ (approximately three inches from the connection point), it allows simple and secure installation of an additional drape line or valance to your next set. The Sidearm™ also gives users the ability to attach lightweight accessories directly to the body. By using one of the “flange nut” rails on either side, users have a wide variety of attachment options. In addition, there are two 1/4” threaded inserts accessible from the top.
The Shoulder Block™
The Versatop Shoulder Block™ is the perfect solution for securing lightweight accessories to your Versatop 2.0® upright poles. Add a wide variety of elements to drape lines, from curtain swags to exit signs, you can secure just about any lightweight accessory with the Versatop Shoulder Block™. Utilizing one of the three 1/4” “flange nut” rails on the body, you have the ability to adapt to any need. Add eyelets, hooks, carabiner clips, exit signs, *lightweight LED fixtures, and more. In addition, there is a single 1/4” threaded insert accessible from the top for added functionality and security.
Angle Mounted Crown™
The Versatop Angle Mounted Crown™ has proven to be one of the most versatile tools in the 2.0® product line.
Attach the Angle Mounted Crown™ to a clamshell clamp or cheeseborough* for a variety of connection options. Use the Angle Mounted Crown™ to wrap truss with drape while still allowing clamp access to the truss structure. Secure the Angle Mounted Crown™ to a wall in a permanent installation to create doorways or draped off areas without the need for uprights or bases.
*Clamp Not Included
Another great solution for securing lightweight accessories to uprights outfitted with the Pipe & Drape 2.0® system. The Steel Mounting Post™ allows users to add a wide variety of elements to drape lines. Utilizing 1/4” x 20 threaded insert that is located in the center of most Crowns™, the Steel Mounting Post™ secures firmly to the top of your Upright. This allows users to secure a variety of accessories to the tops of uprights using the 7/16” x 14 threaded post; from exit signs, *lightweight LED fixtures and more. The Steel Mounting Post™ is built to be a versatile addition to your Pipe & Drape 2.0® solution.
*Made from case hardened steel for years of use in the field ( 7.5 LB Maximum Weight Limit ).
Threaded Ball Stud™
One of the most useful accessories in the Versatop 2.0® lineup, Threaded Ball Studs allow users to connect a variety of elements to the 2.0® system. For example, attach Threaded Ball Studs to standard *frame screens that use 5/16” x 18 (or M8) coarse threaded inserts, and simply hang the screen from the drape line.
*Weight limit of 20lbs per Ball Stud when properly installed and used with properly installed Versatop 2.0® Crown.
A simple solution to overcome the pull towards the center of gravity when using tie-on drape or backdrops with Versatop 2.0® drape support rods.
The Versatop Anti-Roll Clip™ is the perfect solution when using grommet drapes that require bongo ties, or tie line. Once clipped, the “beak” prevents the crossbar rolling action due to gravity, while still allowing for the flexible angle movement that the Pipe & Base 2.0® system is known for. The Anti-Roll Clip™ fits any crossbar that has been outfitted with the Versatop Ball Caps™.
Recommended use is two (2) clips per cross-bar section. Rated to support a maximum torque rating of 15 inch-pounds each, the Anti-Roll Clip™ will easily support standard velour or poly drapery.
The Socket Clip™ is a simple solution for integrating old slotted uprights with your upgraded Pipe & Drape 2.0® system. If you cross rent from companies that have not upgraded to Pipe & Drape 2.0®, or if your company rents to other firms, the Socket Clip™ is a “must-have” accessory. The Socket Clip™ fits any upright that has standard slots, allowing cross supports (sliders) fitted with Pipe & Drape 2.0® Ball Caps™ to connect to the slotted area of the upright. Made from a specially formulated fiber infused Nylon compound, the Socket Clip™ is lightweight and very strong. Rated to support a maximum load of 20 pounds each, the Socket Clip™ will easily support standard velour or poly drapery.
