SAUGATUCK, MI – Shannon Stewart of Stewart Independent Production was seeking a better solution than conventional rigging allows when flying a line array on a lift tower. He found the solution with the Polar Focus Spine Frame Adapter. “The Spine Frame Adapter design is flawless in its ease of attachment, pan and tilt capability and control,” Stewart explains. “The mounting bracket goes on the tower in seconds securely and with redundant safety chains.”
Says Shannon Stewart of Stewart Independent Production, “When flying line array from Genie ST20 Super Towers, or any lift tower for that matter, we wanted a better solution than conventional rigging allows. We want fast consistent, safe, rigid rigging points that allow for great pan and tilt capabilities that can easily be adjusted on the ground or at trim and easily matched tower to tower.”
Stewart says they contacted Polar Focus Rigging and found their solution with the Spine Frame Adapter. “They have a very cool crank tower line array mount with a spine frame that allows for two in-line rigging points and everything we were looking for as mentioned above and more.”
The crank-lift mounting bracket holds up to 800 lbs. It is custom fabricated based on comparing tower manufacturer specs with the measurement of actual fork-play in the client’s own lift towers of the same model.
“The Spine Frame Adapter design is flawless in its ease of attachment, pan and tilt capability and control,” Stewart explains. “The mounting bracket goes on the tower in seconds securely and with redundant safety chains.”
Stewart adds, “Everyone on crew is not only impressed, they are grateful for the new rigging tools from Polar Focus. It is not often that everyone on any crew is grateful, so we can’t say enough good about this product and the company’s design and fabrication capacity.”
