PATRIARC® is an all-purpose heavy-duty stage curtain track system specially designed for large reverse curved auditorium stages. All curves are custom formed at the factory. Equipped with ball-bearing carriers, end pulleys and cable guides, this is one of the quietest tracks in the ADC line. PATRIARC® track systems are normally used with a machine operator. Each drum curtain machine furnished with PATRIARC systems is equipped with a Cable Tension Device at no extra cost. Cable Tension Devices are used to help maintain tension on the operating cables as well help guide the operating cable onto the grooved drum. PATRIARC® curved tracks are available for hand-operation, though not recommended. Curved track systems are inherently more difficult to operate manually than are straight track systems. While PATRIARC® tracks are available for manual applications, we suggest motorizing curved applications of the track.
Model 500-R(600-R) is identical to Model 500(600) except that No. 5001-A neoprene-tired ball-bearing single carriers are used in place of the standard nylon-tired No. 5001 single carriers.
MODELS 501 AND 501-R (601 AND 601-R) are entirely straight in layout. Model 501-R(601-R) is identical to Model 501(601) except that No. 5001-A(BL) neoprene- tired ball-bearing single carriers are used in place of the standard nylon-tired No. 5001(BL) single carriers.
MODELS 502 AND 502-R (602 AND 602-A) are for walk-along operation only. This track system is recommended for stage cyclorama installations where it is necessary that the operator walk the curtain to its opened and closed positions. No cord or pulleys are supplied with walk-along tracks. No. 5002-A(BL) Master Carriers and No. 5008-A Hanging Clamps (or No. 5023A Ceiling Clamps) are used instead of No. 5002(BL) and No. 5008. Model 502-R(602-R) is identical to Model 502(602) except that No. 5001-A(BL) neoprene-tired ball-bearing single carriers are used in place of the standard nylon-tired No. 5001(BL) single carriers.
