This support includes providing foundational, electrical and control requirements, trim details, data for structural analysis and any other assistance the project requires.

Long-term service contracts are also available at each of these installations for periodic inspection and maintenance programs, as well as training services, as needed.

Diorama Seating Turntables

Macton turntables are used to orient the focal point of the room to suit the material being presented. Motion may be slow and continuous to view panoramic views, or indexed to re-direct attention to presentations at fixed locations around the audience. Macton will design and build the turntable with whatever diameter or capacity may be required and can provide trusses to create stepped or sloped floors to suit sight line requirements.

Macton can custom design a turntable or motion system to deliver whatever visual impact is desired.

Custom Controls – From variable speed and reversible direction to precision indexing, sequencing, interfacing with show controllers, and wireless remote operation, Macton can provide the custom control system that is right for any specific application.
