Harrington Hoists Win Best Supporting Role in Stage Craft Technology

MANHEIM, PA–(Marketwired – Apr 22, 2014) – Theatrical hoists, (aka concert hoists or motors), are a critical component of traveling entertainment events where stage building and rigging of lighting systems, audio, or video effects are essential to a show’s success. This concert seasons’ biggest news is the TNER Theatrical hoist from Harrington Hoists, Inc., which is revolutionizing the lifting process at entertainment venues across America.

Designers and installers do not have time to do lengthy maintenance or repair work on their equipment at major events. Harrington eliminates that problem with their maintenance-friendly theatrical hoists. In a recent interview on Industry Visions Industrial News, Bret Lussow, V.P. of Business Development, touted the features of Harrington’s new TNER Theatrical Hoist. “The show must go on,” exclaimed Lussow. “That’s why we have developed the ultimate hoist for the entertainment industry. The TNER addresses some major maintenance items that were previously problematic in the industry. Traditional entertainment hoist brake systems have brake discs, brake coils and wire leads that prompt failure and requires excessive maintenance. The TNER has a Pull-Rotor motor brake system that is as simple as power on, brake off with no brake coil or wire leads to fail. This braking system is self adjusting and has an incredible 5 year warranty, regardless of wear.”

Chain piling and jamming is another concern. Traditional hoist motors are designed with chain guides made from stamped steel; prone to wear. In order to replace these guides, the entire hoist must be disassembled. The TNER features a cast iron chain guide located on the bottom of the hoist that is very forgiving to wear and can easily be replaced with no disassembly of the hoist.

The TNER has a unique plug and play quick voltage changer that allows the user to quickly change from 230V to 460V and the 1/2 to 1 Ton models travel at 16 feet per minute; which is the industry standard for the entertainment industry. Our TNER is also designed to fit perfectly in existing road cases. The TNER from Harrington Hoists, Inc. takes center stage, come see what the world has been denied!”

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