Designed for vertical lifting

When you need scenery to fly, float, or simply “go up” Spotline is the answer. Its powerful 5 horsepower motor, quiet operation, and redundant safety systems make it a natural fit on any stage or studio. Fly walls, props, LED screens & more.

Full torque at zero speed lets you slowly creep out the Christmas tree for Nutcracker or smoothly fly in the chandelier for Phantom. Using Spikemark’s Group Motion feature it is easy to pair a Spotline with a Pushstick winch for multi-axis motion. The helicopter in Miss Saigon can swoop in dramatically and safely.

Intuitive safety

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).

Quick

Need to get that scenery out of the way in a hurry? Spotline can fly at up to 36 inches per second (or even 72″ in special circumstances).

For an 18ft high proscenium opening it can completely clear sightlines in as little as 7 seconds. That’s just three Westside Story “Mambos”

With Spikemark you can also slowly creep into a scenic move and apply full torque at zero speed. No more jerky starts or manditory speed ramp ups to get moving.

Powerful

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 assited 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).

Versatile

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.
