Automated Rigging & Hoists
A new level of convenience and versatility with rigging products
Performing arts centers, school theatres, worship facilities and other entertainment venues rely on the ability to set up and run complex lighting, sound, audio-visuals and scenic effects to stimulate audience interest. Multi-purpose facilities and sports arenas require custom-designed hoists to fit any rigging application.
Daktronics rigging products were the first to be designed and manufactured as a total engineered solution. We were intent on standardizing modern-day rigging practices. Our products can be sold as a complete system, with hoist, loft blocks and battens as well as one of five user-friendly controllers.
Compact, motorized Vortek hoists - with pre-engineered wireways and convenient stage-level controls - are used by professional theatres, school auditoriums, worship facilities and other performance spaces. Raise and lower centerhung displays of all sizes with our low-speed, high-capacity hoists. Use from our family of custom hoists to securely move objects from lightweight banners to massive seating balconies.
With the highest standards in the power-rigging industry, our hoists are designed, engineered, manufactured and installed for your unique load projects.
