Triple E Celebrates 30th Birthday with hands on Track Rigging Competition at ABTT
UK – Entertainment equipment engineering expert Triple E is inviting ABTT visitors to help celebrate its 30th birthday by getting hands on with its robust and reliable track systems and motors on the Test Bench area at London’s Old Truman Brewery.
The company was founded in 1984 to specialise in developing and manufacturing equipment and products for the entertainment industry. Triple E’s first product, the ‘Loose Pin Hinge’, used by many for scenery construction, won Triple E its first ABTT Product of the Year award that same year.
Two new product lines will be launched 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 the UK and European markets.
Triple E will also introduce its DMX control box that is a plug and play addition to its TDRIVE and SDRIVE motors.
To celebrate its anniversary, Triple E is launching a competition inviting participants 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. To enter the contest email Brenda Edelstein on Brenda.Edelstein@3-eee.com with an entry form available from the Triple E website www.3-eee.com/news/track-competition.php
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.
