WHICH CURTAIN TRACK SYSTEM IS RIGHT FOR ME?
No matter which configuration you choose, all Doughty Six Track kits are suitable for a wide variety of applications, both in-studio and on-stage.
- Walk-along system - moving curtains by hand.
The walk-along system consists of a basic stage curtain track operated by manually pulling the actual curtain cloth, usually the edge of the curtain. It allows you to walk with the curtain to the side or center of the stage for opening or closing it.
It offers ease of use without extra devices and is more economical than other options.
In MTN Shop, this system is available with straight or curved tracks. Various lengths are supplied for different staging requirements.
- Line-operated system - operating with a hauling line.
In some situations, you may need the curtain to travel for a long distance and want a smoother opening and closing curtain movement. Line-operated system will be your wise choice.
Instead of grasping and walking with the curtain, the operator will stay at one side of the stage and pull a cord to open and close the curtains. The benefit is a heavy curtain in a hard-to-reach place can be operated with ease.
The line-operated system operates with an 8mm polyester hauling line. You can control the line either by hand with a pulley or with a wall-mounted/ floor-mounted Manual Track Drive. Doughty's Electric Track Drive Unit is also
available for a motorised line- operated curtain track system.
WHY CHOOSE THE DOUGHTY CURTAIN TRACK SYSTEM?
Doughty designed and produced the Six-Track system nearly two decades ago after much consultation with both end-users and stage curtain track installers. This diligence has resulted in a track system that avoids the problems of other types of track.
The Doughty track is made up of a tubular top hanger bar and rectangular section tube rails, finished in black powder coat. All track components are assembled using 5mm nuts and bolts. Since Doughty doesn’t use rivets in the manufacture of any Six Track components, you can modify sections or add pulleys without re-threading hauling lines. With their line of fully-adjustable brackets specially designed for Six Track, you can hang the curtain rack with ease.
