TNER Theatrical Chain Hoists from Harrington Hoists, Inc.

(Manheim PA) Theatrical hoists (a.k.a. concert hoists or motors) are a critical component of theatrical or concert stage building and rigging where lighting, audio, video or staging effects are essential for success; this according to Industry Visions Entertainment News. Harrington Hoists, Inc. has answered the casting call for manufacturing the ultimate hoists designed specifically to meet the requirements of concert halls and theaters where designers and installers demand greater flexibility and creativity for major entertainment venues. Theater, concert, or entertainment hoists must meet the criteria of reliability, durability and be portable for shows that are constantly on the move. 

In a recent interview on WVSN Reports, Bret Lussow, VP Business Development for Harrington Hoists Inc., spoke of the technology their new TNER Series Theatrical Hoist will address. “Harrington has been the market leader of hoist products in the industrial sector for over 146 years. Harrington is proud to bring our expertise in lifting solutions to the entertainment industry, whether it’s a Rolling Stones concert, or the latest Broadway play. Harrington’s TNER Series Theatrical Hoist is the best solution for concert and stage production services companies when rigging overhead trusses, audio, or stage scenery, said Lussow.”

“This new hoist line is the center stage choice with sizes and speeds that match the industry standard at 16 fpm at the ½ and 1 ton capacity; 8 fpm at the 2 ton capacity and a size that conveniently fits standard road cases. The TNER features a Pull-Rotor Motor Brake that contains no brake coil to fail or discs to replace like conventional brakes, which is a comforting factor for producers when its ‘show time.’ Other standard features essential for stage managers are a grease-packed gear box, a sleek round body with no sharp edges, built-in handles and a plug and play voltage changer from 208/ 230V to 460V for flexibility of power which is so important when setting up concerts. Harrington’s TNER Series Theatrical Hoists are CE marked and also meet the rigid German regulation BGV-D8,” he continued.

Lussow smiled as he ended the interview using show business phrases as a call to action, as he said, “We at Harrington would like to encourage the entertainment industry, whether distributors, riggers, concert producers or stage managers, to ‘audition’ Harrington’s new TNER Series Theatrical Hoist. We’re confident if you do ….. our new hoists will get the ‘leading role’ in your productions! There’s a revolution taking place at Harrington; come see what you’ve been denied and ‘Join The Revolution!”

Harrington Hoists, Inc. is a KITO Group Company and operates US manufacturing facilities in Manheim PA, Elizabethtown PA and Corona CA. Harrington also distributes hoist and crane products in South America under the KITO Brand.
