Triple E Celebrates 30th Birthday at ABTT with New Products and Competition
UK - Entertainment equipment engineering expert Triple E is celebrating its 30th birthday at ABTT by exhibiting a raft of new products, sponsoring the ABTT Awards, and hosting a competition to rig a motorised Unitrack system in the fastest possible time.
The company first attended ABTT in the same year it was founded - 1984 - and won the ABTT Product of the Year Award for its 'Loose Pin Hinge', used by everyone for scenery construction.
Three decades on, Triple E is inviting companies to enter a competition to rig a motorised Unitrack system in the fastest possible time, with the quickest team winning one of Triple E's Erail tracks complete with an SDRIVE motor system. The competition will take place in the Test Bench area at ABTT. To enter the contest, visit www.3-eee.com/news/track-competition.php
The company is also manufacturing the coveted ABTT Awards and engraving them with the winners' names for the ceremony on Wednesday 11 June, 5:30pm at Corbet Place, Ely's Yard, adjacent to The Truman Brewery, Brick Lane.
Triple E is launching two new product lines at this year's show. Triple E will be demonstrating a new Kabuki curtain drop system that has been developed with their American partners Rose Brand. The beautifully simple and robust system is well proven in the USA and Triple E believes it will be a significant addition for their UK and European markets.
In addition, Triple E will also introduce a DMX control box that is a plug and play addition to its TDRIVE and SDRIVE motors.
The Triple E team will be on Stand 66 to discuss the company's Erail, Unitrack, Unibeam and Chaintrack systems, known for their simple design, rugged construction and ease of installation in entertainment applications. The company's popular SDRIVE and original TDRIVE motors are also on show.
Visitors can also get hands-on with Triple E's brand new heavy duty TDRIVE motor, which was created in response to the requirements of a number of projects in the USA and Canada. The new TDRIVE HD motor has been developed for longer track systems and heavier curtains. The motor is designed to work with Unibeam and Unitrack systems. Like the standard TDRIVE it incorporates the control, so is a plug and play system. The drive pulley is upgraded to a triple groove system with two rope tensioners.
"Since we launched the SDRIVE and TDRIVE plug and play motors, in 2012 and 2013 respectively, demand for these systems has been steadily increasing as word has got around about their great value, easy installation and reliability," says David Edelstein. "The new DMX accessory will be a great addition to the range making the TDRIVE a perfect motor for the rental market."
Triple E is on Stand 66, 11/12 June 2014, at ABTT, The Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, E1 6QR.
