lengths/strips of gauze


Explanation:
Gaze: gauze, cheese cloth [which is somewhat heavier]
(Ernst, W. der industriellen Technik, ISBN 3 87097 145 2)

The context isn;t entirely clear about how wide the _Bahnen_ are. The term suggests wider sections, but narrower strips would also be conceivable as a walk-though projecton screen.

At any rate, an interesting and very creative idea!
