  • Hexagrip or Black Painted Top? The Choice is Yours!

    Hexagrip or Black Painted Top? The Choice is Yours!

    Due to popular demand by customers, we are now offering our new S10 stage deck tops in two surface finishes – Hexagrip or Black Paint. Both surface options are available on all shapes and sizes of the S10 deck.  The indoor/outdoor, non-slip Hexagrip top was launched together with the new S10 last year and is mounted on its 12mm birch plywood top. It provides increased traction during demanding performances and even when wet. The black painted surface is another popular option that comes on the S10’s 12mm poplar plywood top. This finish is also water resistant for safe use both indoors and outdoors. An advantage with this finish is that it can be repainted at the end of each season, or from time to time during the year, to cover up scratches and abrasions.  Click here to learn more about the new S10 stage deck and its many features.

The projection screens used in drive-in theatres are typically either inflatable movie screens or LED screens suspended by a truss structure. In a 90-minute webinar, Dipl.-Ing. Norbert Tripp, Technical Director of Area Four Industries, explains the peculiarities of ‘Temporary Outdoor LED Screen Structures.’ Utilizing descriptive graphics and on-site videos, the behaviour of LED screens is described including what effects they can have on the supporting structure and how these characteristics should be considered in actual practice. The webinar includes clear explanations of what to consider when hanging LED walls, information relating to relevant standards of safety, and what good construction will enable you to achieve.

Terms of use

Every single component of the EXE-Rise chain hoist main body is manufactured in Italy.

The EXE-Rise clutch system is located outside the load path. The DC brakes give a real instant response to electrical impulses thanks to a unique component specifically created for us. The optional double braking system comprises two brakes that really are independent from each other as they are supplied by two separate cables. That’s why the EXE RISE hoist is really safe. The 5-pocket load wheel, helical gears with dynamic lubrication and the precise aluminium chain guide make the EXE RISE series one of the quietest on the market. Available in Direct control and Low Voltage control versions, the EXE-RISE complies with BGV-D8 and igvw SQ P2 codes of practice.
