  • Polar Focus Ultimate Line Array Rigging Hardware

The mission of Polar Focus is to design, manufacture, sell, and support safe, high quality rigging systems used in professional audio and related activities. We strive to be the very best at providing a complete transition between professional loudspeakers and an architectural structure.

Polar Focus offers structural engineer PE Stamped Drawings in our product scope for all 50 states.

At Polar Focus, we promise to help our customers on the path from hardware need to hardware success, while staying safe and economical. We can interpret design requirements to achieve innovative yet simple results. Sometimes a complicated problem can be solved with something startlingly simple. Bringing that result to our customers is our highest reward. From that reward flows good customer value, while conforming to the required engineering standards and practices. Polar Focus does not just sell brackets, we help a customer achieve a complete transition between professional loudspeakers and an architectural structure.

Polar Focus provides the best value, the best products, and the best service in Audio Rigging. Our turnkey systems form a complete transition from the top of your speakers up to and including  the roof attachment. Our standard 10:1 design factor provides the high level of safety and peace of mind required by our customers.

Polar Focus products are designed to allow for the focus of a loudspeaker or cluster in a polar coordinate frame. Polar coordinate frames have parameters of pan and tilt in typical loudspeaker terminology, latitude and longitude in navigation, pitch and yaw in aeronautics, and θ1 and θ2 (pronounced theta one and theta two) in calculus. The Polar Focus logo is a mathematical definition of pan and tilt.

Prior to the development of the Polar Focus product line, common loudspeaker rigging techniques and equipment resulted in very poor ability to aim loudspeakers. Aiming control frequently resulted in undesirable interactions between the pan and tilt angles of different speakers within a speaker cluster.

Most Polar Focus products separate pan and tilt control to allow ease of aiming while under load, with no undesirable mechanical interactions. Modern loudspeakers and line arrays have precision dispersion pattern control that requires this fast and accurate aiming.

Polar Focus reduces labor cost and variability by providing rigging systems which are pre-assembled to the maximum extent possible.
