Vortek Mechanical Load BrakeVICTOR, N.Y. – Vortek will attend the Professional Lighting & Sound Association (PLASA) show in London, Sept. 12-15. Vortek, known for its versatile family of hoists and controllers, will showcase its unique mechanical load brake. This one-of-a-kind brake is a perfect fit for lifting applications looking for a fully mechanical fail-safe secondary brake design. Vortek, a division of Daktronics Inc. (Nasdaq-Dakt), is a world leader in the design and manufacturing of automated rigging systems for theatrical, architectural and arena applications.

Vortek has recently introduced a fourth control system for the most complex theatrical rigging environments where the speeds and capacities of the hoists are at their greatest. Vortek's powerful automated rigging package includes the new Heavy-Duty hoist series which complements its popular standard Classic hoists.

Along with numerous worldwide projects, designers visiting the PLASA booth #2-Q10 in Earls Court Exhibition Centre will learn why the amazing Troia Design Hotel theatre in Portugal is opening with precise and sophisticated Vortek automated rigging equipment.

Representing Vortek will be Ivan Del Rio, Vortek Project Manager for Europe and Middle East and Dave Rossi, Vortek Operations Manager.
