Designed for vertical lifting
A motor side brake and a secondary brake on the drum shaft adds redundancy to ensure Spotline can stop and hold the load safely in any condition.
Other integrated safety features including a built in cable keeper, manual brake release, and Forward, Reverse, and Ultimate limits. Spotline can safely handle big loads with or without counter-weight assist.
Reviewed and stamped by a 3rd-part engineering firm ensures that Spotline conforms to ANSI E-1.6-1 2012 (the live entertainment industry’s standard for motorized hoists).
With a 5hp SEW motor, Spotline can hoist 500 lbs. without missing a beat. Or you can rig it to your arbor to automate a counter-weight assisted move. Your capacity is only limited by your fly system.
Spotline is efficient enough to lift lightweight props, drapes, and gags. Use multiple Spotlines to fully automate fancy Venetian Contour drapes (wire rope easily works as lift lines through d-rings).
With the optional Spotline Tensioner you can convert the hoist into a deck winch. Let the Spotline pull double duty. Double your investment and your automation capabilities with a single hoist.
The Tensioner clamps onto the bottom of the Spotline frame and allows the wire rope to exit from the bottom of the machine right where you want it for your deck track.
Spotline can be mounted to 12” or 20” box truss. It can also be secured to the stage floor or “bucked” into the grid, wings, or arbor well.
