Erail - Medium Duty Theatre Curtain Track

Flexible and reliable stage tracking for walkalong, corded or motorised operation of drapes on straight or curved systems, ideal for schools and smaller venues.

Erail is an aluminum extruded black anodized track section. The standard stock length for Erail is 6.1 m (20 feet) and can be curved to a minimum radius of 500 mm. The Erail section incorporates a ‘Tee’ slot in its upper face that accepts a proprietary M8 channel nut which is used to attach all components to the track.

Erail is perfect for permanent installations in small to mid-size venues such as schools, studios and theatres. Erail can be used walkalong, corded or motorised. Our plug-and-play motors can be quickly retro-fitted to an existing system so Erail gives venues the flexibility to upgrade their system in the future. All Erail runners utilise ball-raced polyurethane wheels for maximum quietness and smoothness.
