UK - The trust that Neg Earth Lights has put into EXE Technology products was demonstrated last year when they purchased over 200 new EXE-RISE units within a six-month period.
Recent purchases included 250kg, 500kg, 1000kg and 2000kg units, all featuring the new 8:1 safety factor standard and FEM class 2m rating, along with some specific Neg Earth Lights customisation.
“The current EXE-RISE hoist (8:1 range) has seen some fantastic improvements,” says Neg Earth. “For example, the way in which the wiring has been arranged internally, and also the upgrade of the limit switch assembly, especially in the 500kg hoist. Mechanical improvements have seen the chain size increase, leading to a higher safety factor. Another great part of the EXE-RISE is the external nylon guide used, with a carefully designed chain opening to avoid damage to internal components if the chain sees any twists.
“The chasses have carefully machined gaskets that allow for a high IP rating, and so far, this has proven to work well in the toughest of outdoor tours. As stadium tours get larger, and as hoists exposure to the elements increases, this serves to be an important factor to the life of the hoist.”
“EXE-RISE hoists are proving to be very reliable and durable on tough tours. It took a little time at first to change people’s opinions about them, but now many renowned riggers are asking specifically for EXE-RISE. This is really great feedback, since we usually don’t hear many comments on hoists, as we normally get on lighting or other aspects of this industry.”
Stand-out shows that have used the hoists include Phil Collins, Guns ‘N Roses, Take That + ELO (Chris Vaughan - production director), Volbeat, Sting, Blink 182 and The Rolling Stones.
“The service provided from both Area Four UK and EXE Technology has been second to none. In an industry that requires such a high level of service at short notice, it’s very important to know that when we need assistance they will make that extra step.”
