Triple E has a long-established reputation for manufacturing efficient, fit-for-purpose mechanical products and gadgets to aid the movement of curtains and the assembly and construction of stage scenery. As the unique and exacting demands of the industry change, it is often the case that pre-existing pieces of equipment need a review and a refresh to ensure their design adapts to the demands of the applications they are used for.
A manufacturer who recognises this and can evolve a piece of equipment to meet these expectations is one who knows their craft and their customers. This is exactly what the team at Triple E has done in recent months with their Rearfold accessory for their industry standard UniTrack and UniBeam carriers.
“The UniTrack system was first launched in 1988, and the Rearfold accessory has been an integral part of the system since that time. Therefore, a long overdue review of the Rearfold accessory design was implemented” smiles David Edelstein, Founder and Managing Director of Triple E. “The Rearfold carriers enable a curtain as it travels to stack offstage instead of the standard system of stacking from the centre” he continues. “The demand for these accessories has increased and so the design has been changed to ensure not only dimensional accuracy but also to allow us to run a more efficient production process and manufacture greater quantities to match this demand.”
The curtain carrier body of the UniTrack and UniBeam has in recent years changed from steel to an MRP (metal replacement polymer) moulding which is stronger than the metal it has replaced but is lighter and therefore easier to work with. To complement the re-designed runner, the new Rearfold accessory has now been updated with a moulded re-developed rope bridge with snap-in fasteners making it much quicker to fit whilst also improving the efficiency of the carrier.
“We are delighted to report that this re-design has been met with widespread approval” continues David, “and the production of these updated fittings has been pretty much non-stop since the start of the year.”
