A fly system or theatrical rigging system allows the stage crew to hoist quickly and safely components such as lights and stage effects. Drop boxes can form part of a line set, the purpose of which is to fly a bar by hoisting it with lift lines, allowing scenery or lighting to be flown. Electrical line sets may require drop boxes (fly rail socket boxes), which MTX Electrical and Engineering can supply. This allows for the temporary wiring of the line set. It is also possible to use fully wired line sets.
MTX supply a range of fly rail socket boxes, also known as drop boxes, in linear and standard styles, suitable for a variety of applications. MTX Electrical and Engineering, not only supply six-way and twelve-way standard boxes but also offer a customisation service. This means you can purchase an item that suits your exact needs even if you need to change the colour or connector type.
Speak to our team and they will be able to help you piece together a fly rail socket box that has all the connection types you need for your project. Our fly rail panels have developed to suit all standard applications and are manufactured from 1.5mm steel sheet. As well as connection customisation, you can also choose a custom colour.
