Side-Loading Arbors

A classic staple for theaters and venues around the world. Thern Stage Equipment’s traditional side-loading arbors provide quality performance for counterweight rigging systems.

Product Description

Our side-loading arbor is a traditional rod arbor for holding counterweight and traveling within steel, aluminum, or wire-guided tracks. Weights are loaded and unloaded from the side of the arbor between two large rods, rather than the front. This arbor contains weights equal to the weight of the object being raised and lowered on stage for smooth, safe, and quiet operation.

Made to last, our components are comprised of durable, heavy-duty materials. We guarantee consistent service life for your Thern Stage Equipment side-loading arbor by offering a two-year limited warranty to make sure that you’re 100% satisfied.
