Draper Adds Lift for Use on Stages and in Other Public Venues

Draper TorkStar(Spiceland, Ind.)—Draper’s new TorkStar Utility Line Set is designed to raise and lower a wide range of products commonly used on stages, in gymnasiums and churches and other public venues.

TorkStar is an inherently safe, simple lifting system designed for intermittent usage, which can be used to raise and lower lighting, speakers, backdrops, scenery, banners, flags, projection screens and more.

TorkStar eliminates the need for stepladders, scaffolding, or lifts to service or change lamps, filters, or other ceiling suspended items. In the event of an electrical outage or motor failure, there is sufficient braking capacity to arrest the entire system.

TorkStar is the latest addition to Draper’s Conceal/Reveal product line. For more information on the TorkStar, go to www.draperinc.com/go/TorkStar.htm.
