Prolight + Sound debut for three new products from Doughty Engineering
Germany – Doughty Engineering is set to debut three new items at this year's Prolight + Sound show. Stand E24 in Hall 3 will see Doughty display and demonstrate its new Super Lightweight Drop Arm and Projector Mount – both new additions to the award winning Modular Rigging System – as well as its new Floor Stand. Visitors to the stand will also be able to see Doughty's extensive range of grip, rigging and suspension equipment and address any queries to the Doughty team.
Mark Chorley, design engineer at Doughty, said: "Prolight + Sound is without doubt one of the most important shows for us. It allows us to introduce our products to a truly international audience and gather feedback from them. What works for our customers in one corner of the world doesn't necessarily work for others and this sort of information gathering is vital to our product development."
This year, fans of Doughty's Modular Rigging System will see the range has expanded. The Projector Mount offers full 360 degree rotation, tilts in two directions and is adjustable to fit most projectors. Meanwhile the Super Lightweight Drop Arm, with a safe working load (SWL) of 10kg, gives lighting designers the opportunity to hang smaller luminaires. With a 16mm spigot and a safety bond slot, the Super Lightweight Drop Arm fits 48-51mm diameter barrel and is adjustable from 75-400mm.
Mark continued: "The Modular Rigging range will continue to grow as long as its users keep approaching us with their suggestions on how it could be improved. We designed the Modular Rigging System to offer lighting designers the opportunity to be more creative and versatile with their lighting designs. This has worked, but more than that, it's allowed designers to dream up even more interesting ways to use the system. We believe that our best products are those which have been designed with the users' wish list in mind – and this has never been truer than of the Modular Rigging range.
Doughty is also set to debut its new floor stand at this year's show. Manufactured in steel, with a powder painted finish, the new floor stand is designed specifically for mounting moving lights and has a SWL of 50kg. "We're really excited to receive feedback on this new stand - from both our existing customers who are familiar with our other stands and from customers who are new to Doughty," concluded Mark.
