A Wilson Access track mount played a leading role at a historic concert hall and music venue – by helping contractors to inspect an auditorium ceiling.
Theatre Royal Trust, who manage Newcastle City Hall, hired a Teupen Leo 21 track mount and a Wilson Access operator over three days to help specialist contractors to inspect and carry out remedial work on the City Hall’s 89-year-old ornate plaster ceiling.
Nathan Reynard, Theatre Royal Trust Chief Electrician, said: “The Wilson Access track mount performed brilliantly and gave quick and easy access to inspect all areas of the ceiling. In its stowed position the track mount entered the auditorium through a fire escape and was then manoeuvred down the aisles into an area where seating had been removed so that it could be quickly set up and ready for work.”
The Wilson Access Leo 21 has a working height of 21m and an outreach of 12m. It is one of the few tracked mounted units to offer a full 250kg lifting capacity, even at full outreach. Its non-marking tracks mean that it is ideal for internal applications, and built in outrigger pads provide low point loadings for sensitive surfaces.
