UniBeam - Heavy Duty Curtain and Scenery Track

UniBeam is the ultimate track for the most challenging of drape and scenery applications on and off the stage. With a UDL of 1070 kg per metre UniBeam is used in main house venues and film studios across the world.

Dimensionally identical to UniTrack and incredibly strong, UniBeam shares many common components with it’s sister track. As an extruded aluminium profile UniBeam is available in 6.1 m (20') lengths and can be rolled to a minimum radius of 2 m (6'6"). Steel plates and grub screws are used to join and align track sections. The symmetrical design allows it to be used either way up and the continuous top slot allows components to be fitted anywhere along it’s length. Precision ball-raced runners and scenery carriers as well as nylon sheaved pulleys are used for UniBeam from the UniTrack range.

The heaviest-duty track in the Triple E range, UniBeam is the perfect choice for large scenic items, LED walls, arena drapes, camera tracks and more.
