TorkStar is an inherently safe, simple lifting system designed to raise and lower a wide range of products commonly used on stages, in gymnasiums and churches and other public venues. It consists of a motor winch and one or more PosiSpools™, connected by a drive shaft and mounted to the ceiling structure. TorkStar utilizes aircraft cable lift lines with a lifting capacity of 500 pounds (227kg) each.

TorkStar eliminates the need for excessive extra top drop on projection screens, or the need for stepladders, scaffolding, or lifts to service other ceiling suspended items.

Use TorkStar to Lift: Projection Screens, Lighting, Speakers, Backdrops, Scenery, Draperies, Curtains, Scrims, Signs, Banners, Flags, Chandeliers, etc. Each TorkStar Line Set is custom-configured for the application. Contact Draper for assistance with your specific requirement.
