Failsafe brakes on stage equipment

The recently reopened Manchester Royal Exchange Theatre relies on Mayr Roba-Stop-M electromagnetic failsafe brakes on the stage automation equipment. The 40 mobile hoist assemblies for raising and lowering scenery are each fitted with 8Nm Roba-Stop-M brakes, and an additional seven permanent hoist assemblies in the roof of the theatre were each fitted with 16Nm Roba-Stop-M double brakes for added security.
