Clifton Productions Raise Safety Standards with Stagemaker Compact Hoists

Safety is one of the most important issues in any industry, and each year many companies will spend money on new products to keep up with the latest innovations to ensure safety requirements are met. This enables them to stay ahead of the competition, and more importantly keep their employees, and users of their products, safe from serious injury or death. The Australian audio and entertainment industries have been tackling the issue of safety head-on in more recent years and it is fair to say that companies that treat safety as a serious issue tend to get the serious gigs.

Melbourne’s Clifton Productions takes its safety responsibilities very seriously, and their commitment to constant improvement in this area is demonstrated with their recent purchase of over 24 chain motors this year. Clifton’s choice of Stagemaker Compact was made with confidence, as Stagemaker Compact–a product made in Europe by its parent company Verlinde–produce the safest chain motors in the world. Best still, they are developed exclusively for the entertainment industry, under European safety/standards guidelines - standards of which are the highest in the world, and duly being followed by all other international regions.

The Stagemaker Compact range of chain motors is a new product to Australia with Group Technologies taking on the agency late in 2003. As mentioned above, Stagemaker was established to develop products specifically for the entertainment industry under the parent company Verlinde, a massive European company based in France and employer of over 5000 personnel worldwide. Typically, they are in the crane, hoist, and lift-anything business, and they take that role very seriously.

So why did Clifton’s decide on the Verlinde Stagemaker Compact? “Simple answer” says Warren Maher, Clifton Productions owner: “Safety”. “…And not just that” he went on to say, “Clifton’s always look for the best and most innovative products, and Stagemaker upped the ante with its compact size, double-braking (2 brakes instead of one), an IP-56 rating which means they are more weather resistant than any of the competition, and finally, they’re the quietest hoist on the market, we just love these motors”.
