Each week we will take you back to our warehouse or on-site for 30 seconds to see what is being done to offer custom solutions to our rigging projects. 
 
This week we finalize some of our custom Flyhouse washers for an upcoming project.

We like challenges at Flyhouse. When Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch, Colorado (a suburb of Denver) came to us wanting a motorized curtain system for their church, we found a solution that went beyond their expectations.

[Project Recap] St. Viator High School Acoustical Drapes

Posted by Flyhouse on Aug 8, 2016 8:30:00 AM

Tucked away in the suburbs of Chicago, Saint Viator High School is a Catholic secondary school with approximately 1,000 students. The building, originally established in 1961, remained virtually untouched over the years until the 1990s when a series of building upgrades took place.

In recent years, another round of upgrades took place. As part of the upgrade, Saint Viator High School wanted to improve the acoustics of both their choir and band room. While the rooms were functional and provided the needed resources for the choir and band, the sound quality needed a slight adjustment.

In order to accomplish this, Flyhouse installed three manual acoustical drapes on the walls of the rooms. Also as part of the acoustic assistance, a manual bi-part, 25oz thick Charisma Rose Brand acoustical curtain was installed. The curtains hang roughly 10’ above the finished floor and had to be adjusted during installation due to an already installed HVAC system in the room.

While Flyhouse wasn’t around for the first rehearsal after the installation, we are certain the sound quality was impressive.

Every summer, Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay, Florida creates an entertainment atmosphere for everyone needing an escape from the minutiae of life. One aspect is their Kinetix show which incorporates modern music, pyrotechnics, stunts, and performer flying. 

For the last few years, the Kinetix show has had an assist from Flyhouse to make their performers fly through the air with ease. By using our Ziplift 300 series hoist system, performers are secure and can go about their work of entertaining the crowds with no issues.
