Roll Downs or Motorized Roll Drops
As mentioned above our Roll Down is often also referred to as roll drop. It consists of a tube on which the textile of your own choice is rolled. Here it is important that the fabric can roll on this tube and we have different products that applies for different occasions.
The Roll Drops are custom build. They are fitted exactly to the length of the fabric for your request.
The motor is DMX controlled, so you can control and program the speed and positions directly from the lighting desk. Several DMX channels apply to control the unit depending on which Roll Drop you are looking to buy or rent.
A way you can use the Roll Drops is by mounting projection screen on the tube. This way you can easily hide and reveal the screen as it is appropriate according to the show it is part of. Perfect for theaters, concerts, venues etc. because the application of the Roll Downs is very flexible. It is possible to include it in the scene design in many ways.

The newest addition to the Roll Down family is our DMX Snow Machine. This has the same features as our other Roll Drops and the control is similar as well. However, the difference is here that the aluminum tube which is used to roll fabric on is replaced with another tube with small holes. The tube can be filled with fake snow and when the tube is rolling the snow will sprinkle out and create a great snowing effect.
Very good for Christmas setups, or other performances where you need a snowing element effect. You can create different snow effects by controlling the speed of the tube.
