28 Rotodraper®

Rotodraper® pivot devices are used for changing the position of curtains on tormentors, side legs, backdrops and cycloramas. The effect is easily accomplished either by turning the curtain itself or by fastening a towline to the curtain pipe and pulling the tow line until the curtain is in the desired position. The pivot device is unique because no implement is required to secure the curtain to its proper position. The Rotodraper® is simply installed and easily manipulated to any angle desired including a full 360° turn.

OPTIONS: Model 28-A includes an index plate and spring-loaded roller latch which secures the device at 15 degree intervals which helps prevent accidental rotation. With the use of a special brake (Model 401), track-type Rotodrapers® can be secured at any location along the track, helping to prevent accidental movement of the device. Simply by pulling down on the cord, the brake is released and the pivot arm can then be moved.(Obtainable as an option.)

To be used with 2800 track channel. Brackets formed of 11-gauge steel. Can support 75 lbs. maximum weight. Two Pipe Clamps supplied  (clamps for 1" pipe standard). Model 401 Self-Locking Brake composed of sponge-rubber brake shoe with spring-loaded lever action is obtainable as an option.
