Triple E gets Butlins Centre Stage on track

Triple E Ltd beat the odds and the clock to provide Illuminate Design with a custom-shaped motorised track for the Centre Stage venue at Butlins, Skegness last week.

AV specialist Illuminate called in Triple E Ltd when an existing tab system failed just before the start of a new Centre Stage show.

To follow the shape of the platform, Triple E Ltd's design had to incorporate a double S set of curves. Illuminate sent a sketch across late Thursday evening and MD David Edelstein quoted it immediately.  On Friday, the company drew it up, assembled the Erail system and the 25m TDRIVE motorised, six curve track was collected just after lunch.

Robin Shephard-Blandy, Owner/Director at Illuminate Design, comments: "The deadline was particularly tight because there had been difficulties with other ideas for the replacement track. Triple E's solution enabled us to carry out the installation over the weekend and be ready for doors on Monday.

"We have worked with Triple E a couple of times in the past, on complex projects such as lighting over and within tanks at the London Aquarium, so knew they were used to a challenge and the response to the Butlins crisis was fantastic."

David Edelstein, says: "Illuminate could only work at Centre Stage between 10.00pm and 10.00am. At the client's request they spent Friday night trying to get the original system operating properly before installing ours, which worked straight out of the box!"
