Our Mini Roll Down can be applied for any stage performance you are preparing for. It is created with a motorized aluminum tube with mounting options for stage curtains, backdrops, laser gaze or other textiles in your stage design.

The tube can be fitted to your requirements regarding the length of your fabric. It is thus a very flexible solution, where you have several opportunities for integrating in your show.

Furthermore, you can mount almost any fabric which makes it possible to use the Mini Roll Down for different stage effects such as projection screen, making pictures appear etc.

We also have a Fast version of the Mini Roll Down, which you can see here.

Mini Roll Down – The Perfect Theatrical Roll Drop

As mentioned, the Mini Roll Down is perfect for moving any type of fabric. That is why if you are looking for a theatrical roll drop solution, the Mini Roll Down has been successfully implemented for this in the past. Take a look at our Portfolio here.

It is controlled from the lighting desk via the integrated DMX interface. The top and bottom limits are set via a DMX desk, which makes it easy to take on tour to venues with varying ceiling heights.

Just simply set your limits, and run your cues as normal. The advanced DMX protocol will take care of the rest.

So, whether you want to make your backdrop move or map your video projections onto a movable piece of fabric, the Mini Roll Down is the roll drop system for you.

A Solution for your needs

Variable speed and precise positioning provide an easy and effective tool for curtain motion. 16-bit DMX precision controls the position, while a second channel controls the speed of the movement. As a result, the movements can easily be implemented in a cue list on the lighting desk and integrated into the show.

Whether you are creating a completely new show, or adding this to your existing design, the Mini Roll Down is easily integrated.

The system is available as a custom solution, with customizable curtain width (1-4 m/3-13 ft), working height, speed, and lifting capacity.

The Mini Roll Down is made with the Wahlberg DMX Motor Unit, and thus easy to apply for different tube lengths.
