Roll Drops

Perfect for situations where fly space is limited, Thern Stage Equipment roll drops are ideal for venues with space constraints, allowing you to save room and your performance.

Product Description

Our roll drops consist of a long, motorized aluminum roller hoist to securely raise, lower, and store fabric backdrops, acoustic curtains, green field screens, projection screens, and other types of soft good materials. These compact and convenient roll drops are available in fixed and variable speeds, and drop heights and lengths can be modified to suit specific needs. Controls are sold separately for single or variable speeds.
