Mark 1 ShowTower

ground

ground

Safely lifts 2000lbs up to a height
of 28’ft.
28’ft Mast
uses 12in ShowTower trussing as Mast.

The Mark 1 ShowTower: a self erecting, freestanding ground support tower giving you an over head rigging point wherever it is needed.


•The ShowTower System was invented for applications when a Genie Lift doesn’t do it. With basically the same footprint as the Genie Lift you get higher load capacity (2000lb vs. 750lb) and a more ridged tower.
•Lift small roof systems, SpeedGrid systems, green screens, rain covers, blackout tents, backings, etc.

Comes standard with:
1 x 16ft section
1 x 8ft section
1 x 4ft section
1 x 2ft section

THIS PERMITS REDUCTIONS IN HEIGHT AT 2'FT INCREMENTS.

Mark 2 ShowTower

ground

•The Mark 2 ShowTower is a self-erecting, free standing ground support tower.
•ShowTowers give you a safe, flexible rigging point anywhere you need it. Jus as if you rigged a chain motor from the perms.
•Lift Green Screens, SpeedGrids, Rain Covers, Giant Overheads, Kino Flo Rigs, Black Out Tents, Backing, etc.
•ShowTower Truss is Equilaterally braced. Designed specifically for compression loads.

•Maximum tower height: 40’ft
(Taller than most stages in town)
•Maximum lifting capacity up to 4000lbs when rigged with a 2 ton chain motor.
•Assemble the tower on the ground. Uses the chain motor and lift cable to stand it up

Self-Climbing Tower Systems
Each tower consists of truss for the mast, a head block for the chain of the lifting motor to go over and a sleeve block, a corner block that slides up and down the out side of the tower truss that that the horizontal truss is bolted to.
These systems are normally used with a minimum of four towers (like a table) to support a truss frame or roof system. The towers rely on the attached truss or grid to brace the towers vertically eliminating the need for outriggers, resulting in a "cleaner" look and a smaller footprint. The ShowRig Sleeve Blocks have multiple bolt hole patterns to allow for SpeedGrids or a variety of different size trusses to be bolted to them to them. This allows you to choose the best truss and tower combination to meet your span and load requirements.

ground

This system can support up to 2,000lbs
s per tower to heights of up to 25ft


Our 6in IBTW self-climbing tower has the smallest footprint of any ground support system. Using an IBTW self-climbing tower in conjunction with a SpeedGrid gives you a compact adjustable height grid with columns that are easy to mask for locations like ballrooms or nightclubs.
