Another Friday, another exciting announcement of a new large installation project destined for next year.
PSRIG are pleased to have signed an agreement with Växjö Konserthus to help them demolish their old and install brand-new overhead stage machinery.
A little history
The idea of building a new concert hall in Växjö was first discussed in the mid-sixties. However, serious efforts toward its realization only began in the mid to late 1980s. By March 1989, the construction for the 15 000 m2 concert hall began, and it was all finished by September 1991. The hall’s main space is named in honor of the city’s famous opera singer, Christina Nilsson (1843–1929).
The venue can seat up to 800 guests, with 60 of the seats located up on the balconies. The concert hall hosts around 100 public events yearly, such as concerts, stand-up comedy, plays, and lectures.
The new main-stage overhead solution will consist of 31 motorized FlexBeam flybar units. Each unit will be equipped with a GIS LP500 chain hoist in a two-speed configuration (2/8 m/min). Additionally, each chain hoist will also be equipped with encoder sensors for positioning and load monitoring.
Also included in the project are new point lifts, a projector lift, FlexRail curtain tracks, and complete new velvet coverings.
PSRIG’s proprietary control system, FlexControl, will be used to control the whole system.
Demolition of the old and assembly of the new system is planned for June 2024.
