Specialty Theatre, part of Specialty Group Pty Ltd has introduced a new lighting bar solution for theatre and stage applications.  

Specialty Theatre is the theatrical and stage rigging, drapery and equipment division of Specialty Group Pty Ltd.  

Featuring an extremely robust, all-steel construction, the new STS140 light bars from Specialty Theatre are designed for heavy-duty stage lighting applications. The lighting bars are fully designed and manufactured in Australia for Australian conditions.  

STS140 light bars come with Unistrut channelling, allowing mounting to be done with standard Unistrut mounting apparatus. The light bars can be used as a standalone bar or bolted together to make larger bars by joining multiple 2.4m sections.  

Key features of STS140 light bars:  

  • Contains two electrically and mechanically segregated compartments: one for 230V and one for Extra Low Voltage (ELV) or data transmission
  • 6 x 10A outlets mounted across one side of the bar
  • Complies with AS3100:2002 electrical safety requirements and AS4991:2004 (C2) lifting beam requirement
  • Multiple sections can be joined together to create a larger bar
Jim Dodd, Theatre Sales at Specialty Theatre says that the lighting bar was designed based on customer feedback about their need for a strong and reasonably priced product.

According to Brian Ross, General Manager, the lighting bar withstood destruction load testing even at 600kg, but the product is rated at a 100kg/m Distributed Load Limit (UDL) and a 100kg Point Load rating for consistency with industry standards.
