Motorized Rigging Systems


Motorized Rigging Systems

Motorized Rigging systems for theaters, sports facilities and TV studios offer a cost effective and safe way to raise and lower lights, scoreboards, speaker clusters and other key equipment. These systems consist of an electric hoist, controls, cabling and all pulleys required to get cable from the hoist to the suspended load.

Peter Albrecht has been designing, manufacturing and installing safe and reliable theater hoists and motorized rigging systems for more than 50 years. Our experience and extensive library of previous projects allows us to provide custom systems for less than competitors standardized products.

Additional advantages of a system from Peter Albrecht:
  • Gearboxes utilize only worm gear arrangements to prevent load slip even without brake engagement. These systems do not allow "back-driving". This feature gives a significant safety advantage over competitor's hoists utilizing gearboxes designed to maximize gear efficiency (lowers cost) instead of safety.

  • Multiple Hoist configurations to accommodate even the most challenging space and mounting requirements. See our Products page to learn more about some of our more common hoist configurations. Contact us for information on flagpole hoists, self-climbing hoists, batting cage hoists and other unique designs.

  • Hoist systems are available in capacities ranging from a few hundred pounds to over 40,000 pounds.

  • We design and build products in-house. Experienced staff is available to handle complete installation or just to supervise install.
