Crank Tower Lifting Bar

Our good friends at Community Professional Loudspeakers needed an easily transportable demonstration rig to show off their latest speaker products. The demonstration kit they traveled with did not include any lifting towers. The crew would use crank towers or a forklift provided by the local Community dealer, who was the host. A key product being demonstrated on this road show is the IV6 Vertical Array Module system.

We designed a special lifting bar that would fit all popular crank tower arm sets, and most forklifts. It has convenient lifting handles on each end to make mounting it onto a tower or forklift easy for two people. The line array frame for the IV6 quickly pins to the lifting bar with pan and tilt adjustability. The lifting bar can be easily converted to support conventional speakers like the Community R2 series.

Steve Young, Director of North American Sales for Community stated, “We have probably used them at least 20 times so far and they are excellent!”

Brian had some great things to say about working with us: “Installation was a breeze. Thanks for the incredibly smart design of your products. We were very impressed by the ability to make fine tune adjustments with the entire weight of the line array under the rigging.”

Polar Focus Pole Mounts on lighting poles are usually the easiest way to rig outdoor speakers. We use stainless steel rigging rated chain and hose kits, which provide a super strong connection that does not void the warranty of the lighting pole. This looks great and will for years to come!

Pole Mount Test Rig

This morning we were moving our test rig used for rating Pole Mounts off of our parking area and onto the lawn for winter storage. The mount that this was used with (a not yet released product) has a 129mph static wind rating, which is class 3 hurricane force winds. There’s nothing like a chance to work with a big crane!

US Steel Tariffs

A note on rising steel prices due to recent US tariffs:  Our steel vendors have already begun to contact us about limited availability, price increases, and price volatility in the steel industry.

Polar Focus is committed to providing the safest and highest quality rigging hardware systems and components and will continue to do so. We added a ‘steel surcharge’ in our system today for those instances where a markup would be necessary. We will keep working with our vendors to ensure we get the best steel prices we can.

This project came in as a rush and Polar Focus was able to manufacture the white
hardware within the installation timeline.  In the photo below, the rigging hardware
is almost invisible.Polar Focus rigging for Bose RoomMatch at Virginia Military Institute

The RoomMatch clusters truly look great in the venue – looks like speakers floating
in air.  Jim had great things to say about how much easier Polar Focus rigging made
the installation process:

“We got it all done, and even had to take down the last 3 and redo because they put the
wrong cabinets on the clusters. The more we did the faster we got. Imagine that!

They went up really easy once we got past the construction issues.”

We were very glad to help, and hope the students at VMI benefit from the new
system for years to come.
