Doughty set to showcase new additions to Modular Rigging range at ABTT
UK – DoughtyEngineering is set to debut three new pieces of kit at this year's ABTT Theatre Show. The Doughty team will be on hand to demonstrate the company's new super lightweight drop arm and projector mount – both new additions to the award winning Modular Rigging System.
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 barrels and is adjustable from 75-400mm in length.
Mark Chorley, design engineer at Doughty, said: "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. A show like ABTT is the perfect arena for our customers to tell us just how well our products are working for them and how they would like to see them developed. 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 lists 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", explained Mark.
He continued: "ABTT is without doubt one of the most important shows for us. It allows us to introduce our products to a very specific audience and gather vital feedback from them. We know that what works for our customers in one sector doesn't necessarily work for others and the feedback we get is fundamental to ensuring we are manufacturing items that are held in high esteem by everyone."
