igus® cable carriers, flexible cables and plastic bearings for the theater industry

Reliable, quiet and invisible – setting the scene with motion plastics® for stage equipment

Every stage is unique, which means that each and every component not only has to be powerful, durable and efficient but must also fit together perfectly. Theatre and stage construction present special technical challenges. These challenges include high loads, such as those found on crossbeams, stage lighting, stage sets or entire stage platforms, which must move safely and reliably. Furthermore, technical equipment must operate quietly and out of sight, so as not to interfere with the performance. igus® offers energy supply systems, highly flexible cables and plastic bearings that meet these exact requirements. As igus® provides modular systems and a wide range of components, it is possible to implement customized applications quickly and easily.

The advantages of igus® products for stage equipment and systems:

  • Energy and data cables and hydraulic hoses guided in one system
  • Quiet - 32 dB(A) - and low vibration
  • Lightweight
  • For confined spaces or very high loads
  • High speeds and acceleration
  • Robust and easy to install
  • Simple installation and quick maintenance or repairs
