Jands  is a major distributor of professional sound and lighting systems as well as stage equipment.  

Based on the Jands SBH-150 motorised steel band hoist and the Jands JLX-PRO wired lighting bars, the Jands SLX-100 motorised lighting battens are an innovative line of packaged hoists designed for television, dance and rehearsal studios, media venues, theatres as well as various performance or corporate venues.  

Jands motorised lighting battens feature an integrated energy chain cable management system that reticulates cabling from the lighting bar. Cable trays fitted to the side of the motor unit facilitate the reticulation of cables past the hoist.  

Designed to extremely high safety standards (German Safety Regulation BGV-C1), the motorised lighting battens are fitted with a dynamically irreversible gearbox and patented safety catch to ensure safety in a brakeless design.  

The brakeless design ensures smooth acceleration and deceleration even under Emergency Stop or power failure conditions and also contributes to low maintenance.  

Overload and underload sensing is provided, while the gimbled design of the steel band pulleys minimises twisting of the bands.  

The strut-style top channel of the motorised lighting battens can accommodate the wide range of JLX-PRO accessories for fixing to wire ropes, chains and fixed supports.
