The installation of the MEGASCREEN projection screen track system
The client wanted a special projection surface in the cultural centre - serving also as a cinema - which would reel up (wind up) easily; thus it would not interfere with theatrical performances when the hall is not used as a cinema.
We needed to find a solution to overcome the issues surrounding the suspension and operation of the extensive canvas as well as the logistics of delivering it to the cinema hall (e.g. the capacity of the goods lift).
We recommended to the client the 12x6 meter *MEGASCREEN system manufactured by Gerriets. We delivered the system - weighing 600 kg - to the location and subsequently to the respective hall in a number of smaller elements ready to be assembled.
The system was suspended with 4 chain hoists, with the control panel set up alongside the already installed upper machinery control panel. The installation of the MEGASCREEN projection screen track system took three days.
The *MEGASCREEN and MEGASCREEN TOUR systems are mobile, bottom-rolling projection canvas systems using our carbon tubes. They offer quick assembly and disassembly in all the standard formats and special sizes as well as quick rolling of up to 0.4 m/s.
The assignment was to laminate a hand-painted canvas to the safety curtain in the framework of the complete renovation of the Hungarian State Opera, prepared in the studio of the establishment.Project details
