With batten lengths up to 45' (13.7 m) and as much as 50' (15.2 m) of travel, this zero-fleet stage rigging hoist delivers a gross lifting capacity of 1,500 lb. (680 kg). It has five lift lines, is adjustable on the back bone and features steel guides so there’s no danger of cables crossing the groove. The VARION® can also be underhung or sit on top of grid—whatever meets the needs in your theatre. Equally important, it gives you the flexibility you need at a price point your budget can handle.
The Varion® Hoist can be mounted on any existing infrastructure, including a building’s bar joist, without causing horizontal stresses on the structure. Use it for electrics, curtains, drops or front-of-house stage lighting or speakers. Compact, the hoist’s motor can fit at almost any point on VARION’s robust backbone. Loft blocks can be mounted almost anywhere on the beam, so they can fit around specific objects or be placed to coincide with openings. Even maintenance is easy: The hoist’s open design provides ready access, allowing technicians to maintain and inspect the hoist.
