Doughty's Three Position Tank Trap named ABTT Engineering Product of the Year 2017
UK – Doughty Engineering's Three Position Tank Trap has been awarded the ABTT Engineering Product of the Year Award at this year's show.
The new piece of kit enables rigging to be built close to a wall, in the corner of a room or near to an obstruction. It has a detachable receiver suitable for 48mm barrel, which may be fitted to any of the three mounting points, which are located in the centre as per a standard tank trap, at the edge and in the corner.
The ABTT Theatre Awards 2017 took place on the evening of Tuesday 6th June in the Londesborough Room at Alexandra Palace. The judging panel, which comprised an experienced group of working practitioners and industry peers, commented: "The mark of a good product is if, on first observation, the question raised is 'Why has this never been made before?' and Doughty Engineering's Three Position Tank Trap certainly achieves this. With a neat storage and transportation system and flexible mounting details, much of the manual handling issues associated with large tank traps have been suitably and efficiently addressed."
Doughty's new Space Saver also received the judges’ commendation in the Engineering Product of the Year category.
Dan Phillips, projects manager at Doughty, said: "We had an excellent ABTT Theatre Show this year with some useful feedback from customers – ideas like the Three Position Tank Trap come from talking to end users at shows like ABTT, which provide a great forum for us to engage with our greatest asset – our customers. Winning the ABTT Engineering Award is the icing on the cake."
