FRICTION-DRIVE Components for STDUIO

Curtain sections move without rope or pulleys. The motor moves silently along the track and receives its power from a trailing festoon cable or from integrated, track mounted conductor rails. Curtains/scenery are directly attached to motor and are "pushed" and "pulled" along track. This allows long, complex track configurations, including endless loops.
