10 Reasons Why Helios Hoist™ is Turning Heads
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.
