Only The Best Will Do For Mueller College

Jands manufactured and supplied the proscenium opening masking curtains, legs and borders, plus the main, midstage and upstage curtains with borders.

“The legs can be used as full drawn stage curtains and this gives us the flexibility to mask the stage to whatever size we want,” remarked Don Heazlewood, Mueller’s Project Manager. “Because we have a twenty metre wide proscenium we need to be able to narrow that down depending on what function we have operating at that time. In conjunction with that we’ve installed a 9 x 5 metre projection screen which comes down off one of the catwalks and we can mask this screen as well.”

All of the curtains are controlled with winch motors, again supplied by Jands, so there are no hand drawn curtains.

“One of the objectives behind installing an AMX control system is we wanted the flexibility to go to preset locations and store them in the system so as to accurately mask whatever function we’re doing,” explained Don. “It will all be automated through the stage management system.”

By consulting with the experts such as Jands, Don has assured the technological future of the college for many years. It may take a while to complete his dream but when he does, the college will be able to offer only the best.
