Helios HoistBig venues shouldn’t own the market on big innovation. That’s the thinking behind Helios Hoist from J.R. Clancy. It’s the company’s newest addition to its full family of automated rigging solutions.

Helios is the amazingly capable, yet compact, engineering breakthrough for smaller venues where space is at a premium. It is also our most cost-effective, feature-packed hoist yet, says Patrick Finn, Performing Arts Product Manager, Wenger Corporation.

“Today, small venues need to have multi-purpose abilities. Helios Hoist gives those venues flexibility and convenience.” Helios is ideal for light-to-medium duty electric and shell sets, light-duty drapery and scenery sets, and front-of-house electrics.
