APE Hanger™ Series 9/8 loudspeaker rigging is designed around a 1 1/8″ (9/8″) diameter tube. It is a single-point system with low visual impact. The system is used in conjunction with user-provided schedule 40 steel pipe and/or steel framing systems like Unistrut. This combination creates a system that is flexible, safe, fast and affordable.
Because it is a single-point system, it is far less time consuming to make the structural connection amidst the jungle of other building elements like conduit, duct work and ceiling support systems. The APE Hanger™ can be used to install a speaker to within a few inches of a ceiling while retaining full adjustability of aiming angles. This is a great advantage when last minute adjustments to aiming angles are required. It also alleviates the need to know precise aiming angles prior to installation. Unlike systems that require linking speakers together at fixed angles, the APE Hanger™ can create arrays of any configuration without sacrificing the adjustability of each speaker.
The APE Hanger™ allows much more preparation to be done in the controlled environment of your facility instead of the frequently chaotic conditions of a construction site. Speakers can be transported to the job site in their shipping boxes, with the APE Hanger™ attached, then literally hoisted out of their box and into position. Even the vertical aiming angle can be adjusted prior to delivery.
Utilizing these features decreases installation time, protects equipment from damage, and decreases the opportunity for theft.
