Doughty launches the Fifty Clamp at LDI

USA – Doughty Engineering is set to launch the brand new Fifty Clamp at this year's LDI. The clamp which will make its debut on booth 1827 has TUV approval, a safe working load of 50kg and has been designed to fit tube diameter 38mm-51mm. Made from pressure die cast aluminium ensures it prevents damage to thin wall truss. It is captive with M10 or M12 bolts and comes supplied with an M10 fixing kit.

Mark Chorley, design engineer at Doughty commented: "We've been working on the Fifty Clamp for a little while, so we're very excited to be launching it at LDI this year. Our Twenty Clamp is one of our best selling pieces of kit and we realised that a clamp which could take a safe working load of 50kg would be a welcome addition to the range."

Doughty's Omega Space Saver will also make its debut at the show. Mark continued: We actually brought the prototype version with us to LDI 2017, but this year we want to let our customers know that the Omega is now available to order. The Omega version of our popular Space Saver sees one of our Omega clamps permanently fitted to a luminaire with a hinge that locks into place. In the closed position, the luminaire can be put in its flightcase neatly and easily without having to dismantle all the pieces thus eliminating the chances that pieces are lost or mislaid when moving a luminaire from one location or venue to another. Not only is it a more ergonomic solution but it also speeds things up for the lighting technician who might find themselves having to move lights into different locations on a rig or for the touring lighting professional for whom time is always of the essence.”

Julian Chiverton, sales director said: "We'll have an incredibly full stand at LDI this year, we expect our new items to get lots of attention but also appreciate that kit, which has been a part of our range for years will also get lots of queries too; it's the success of these, and their reputation as quality, reliable products, that mean our customers return to us time and time again. LDI is a truly international platform from which to launch the new Fifty Clamp which we anticipate becoming another big seller – and we'll be keen to see whether the Omega Space Savers are as popular with in the US as they are in the UK and Europe."
