Ultimate Line Array Rigging

  • Polar Focus Ultimate Line Array Rigging Hardware

About

The Polar Focus PY Quick Disconnect Fitting is a simple yet powerful component designed to allow a broad range of speaker grids and speaker rigging accessories to be quickly pinned to each other. The members of this patented and patent pending family of products are all derived from our XY Grid® System, providing unprecedented control of pan and tilt under full load. Pan control is standard on all PY products and is equipped with a friction bearing. The friction bearing works like your car sun visor; when you push, it turns, when you let go, it stays.

If you don’t see what you need listed here, please contact us – we frequently manufacture custom equipment.  Polar Focus offers pro audio rigging design, roof attachment, supplemental structure, sales, support and PE stamped drawings for our product scope in any US State.

Additional line array frames and manufacturer specific products coming soon.

Structural Attachment

PY1-RBC-1_1100

PY1-RBC-1-11001

Allows a cluster to be mounted directly to a level steel I-Beam with pan control.  Used for level I-beam with vertical loading. Fits I-beams with a flange width from 2.95 to 9.05 inches. Maximum flange thickness is 0.79 inches. WLL = 1100 lbs at 10:1 design factor.  Other load capacities available.

See our PY1-RBC-1-1100 Datasheet for more complete information.


PY1-CBA-32

Allows a cluster to be mounted to a level or sloped large wooden or glue-lam beam with pan control.  The basic size is perfect for a single trapezoidal speaker or small line array, but it can be scaled up for heavy arrays up to the limit of the wooden beam.  The PY1-CBA-3 includes the fasteners for attachment to the wooden beam.

See our PY1-CBA-3 Datasheet for more complete information.


CBA-4 PY

PY1-CBA-43

Allows a cluster to be mounted to a rolled large wooden or glue-lam beam with pan control.  The basic size is perfect for a single trapezoidal speaker or small line array, but it can be scaled up for heavy arrays up to the limit of the wooden beam.  The PY1-CBA-4 includes the fasteners for attachment to the wooden beam.

See our PY1-CBA-4 Datasheet for more complete information.


box-truss-with-l416-arrows-2PY1-BTP1212-15504

PY1 with Box Truss Plate is a component designed to allow for clean and fast attachment of a line array to the end plate of a 12” x 12” truss, or the joint between two 12” x 12” trusses. The use of this component eliminates the need for slings and integrates a pan control feature with infinite adjustability. This product may be used at the end of a truss or bolted between two adjoining truss components.

See our PY1-BTP1212-1550 Datasheet for more complete information.


PY1-WMV-2226

PY0-WMV-2226-2505

Allows a cluster up to 250 lbs to be mounted from a masonry block wall, load bearing sheetrock wall, or solid concrete wall. Partition walls and walls where the studs do not connect to the roof are not appropriate for this application. Typically used with small line arrays. Working Load Limit of 250 lbs at a 10:1 design factor. Other load capacities available.

See our PY0-WMV-2226-250 Datasheet for more complete information.

Accessories

Post-PYPY1-UJEXT-POST1

An extension post which allows any cluster to be mounted up to 16 feet below the roof attachment point. The interior of the post has a 2 ½” x 2 ½” cavity which allows speaker signal cable or amplifier power cable to be run through the post. This allows for a super clean installation.  The top of the PY1-UJEXT-POST assembly has a heavy duty rated U-joint.  This allows the cluster to move laterally during a seismic event with minimal moments applied to the supporting roof beams.

See our PY1-UJEXT-POST Datasheet for more complete information.


PY1-MZB-SR52

PY1-MZB-SR52

Allows a cluster to be serviceable with up/down motion using only one half ton hoist with a 1 ton load.  Other load capacities available.

See our PY1-MZB-SR-5 Datasheet for more complete information.


L379-3.2

PY0-STEM3

Allows a cluster to be mounted from a stem through a ceiling with speaker cable passing through, with pan control. The hollow characteristic of the Stem component allows the speaker signal wire to be chased through the Stem body, preventing the need for a junction box below the ceiling.

See our PY0-STEM Datasheet for more complete information.


PY1-ZBH.2. jpg

PY1-ZBH-15504

Allows for two point support of a cluster for permanent installations, with a center service pick point, with full pan control.  Not for use with two hoists.
*If you need to lift your cluster with two chain hoists, you must use the PY1-ZBR, found below.

See our PY1-ZBH-1550 Datasheet for more complete information.


PY0-ZBH-300

PY0-ZBH-3005

Allows for two point support of a cluster for permanent installations, with a center service pick point, with full pan control.  Not for use with two hoists.

PY-SLH

PY1-SLH6

PY1-Self Leveling Head allows a cluster to be suspended at the apex of a bridle with pan control.

See our PY1-SLH Datasheet for more complete information.


PY1-ZBR

PY1-ZBR-15507

Allows for a cluster in portable or installation application to be safely lifted/supported by a pair of hoists, with pan control.  Working Load Limit is 1500 lbs.  Also available in other weight ratings.

See our PY1-ZBR-1550 Datasheet for more complete information.


RLP-X2-1800 Redundant Load Point for Polar Focus Line Array Frames.
RLP-X2-1800 8

Redundant Load Points are used in jurisdictions where it is required to have a second load point to support the full speaker load. They are not needed by engineering definition but may be required within some building codes. The RLP components can be added to a Polar Focus matching line array frame or spine frame adapter in the field when the line array frame or spine frame adapter is not supporting the load.

See our RLP-X2-1800 Datashseet for more complete information.
