Verlinde Stagemaker

ShowQuip is very active in large installation projects of trussing and rigging and have been ready to meet the fast–changing demands on hosting equipment and the guidelines required for safety.

Traditional entertainment hoists available have been governed by a 5:1 safety specification but with more and more dynamic loading required in the air, the European rigging industry looked at increasing the safety factor to 10:1. Stagemaker were one of the first companies to offer a 10:1 safety factor with the addition of double–braking and sophisticated detection devices.

STAGEMAKER® motors and accessories meet today’s demanding market requirement and lead the way to the future. STAGEMAKER® hoists are recognised worldwide as the future standard for stage and tour equipment. VERLINDE is synonymous with stage-of-the-art technology, uncompromising safety, and product reliability and availability in the widest range of speeds and load capacities. This is the result from 150 years of innovation and it’s no coincidence that STAGEMAKER® introduced on the market the first hoist dedicated to the entertainment industry, the LITACHAIN L104 in 1975. Our product’s amazing characteristics and features truly open the gates to creativity and inspiration for lighting movement solutions.

STAGEMAKER® staging the future.
