In-Harmony Productions rely on ProLyft hoists


South Africa: When it comes to suspending line arrays for large-scale events, In-Harmony Productions rely on ProLyft motors from Prolyte. With six one Ton Prolyft motors in stock already, they recently made an investment of an additional two ton motor to keep up with demand.

In-Harmony provides a service in two key areas, Live Technical Productions and installations particularly for Houses of Worship, explains Juan Soothill, MD and System Designer and Engineer at In-Harmony. “We own a JBL VTX V25 system, and for massive events collaborate with two other V25 owners. When working on bigger indoor and outdoor gigs, we want to be able to suspend more line array boxes with the focus being on safety.”

Earlier this year, In-Harmony used the Prolyft motors for church meetings held in Johannesburg’s FNB Stadium (an over 94 000 seater venue) and in Accra, Ghana. The motors then went straight onto the next show, “Manna vir die Boere” hosted at the Voortrekker Monument, south of Pretoria. “This was a special benefit concert for the farmers to raise funds for the drought recently experienced in South Africa. Marius Marais, owner and sound engineer from Audio Logic, contracted us (along with his own system), for both these events.

“The greatest thing about the ProLyft motors is that they are dead quiet compared to other brands available, and some of the reputable companies we have worked with have said the very same thing,” said Juan. “We also converted our 1 tons to 2 ton motors at a fraction of the cost it would have been to buy new 2 ton motors. DWR’s Robert Izzett specifically suggested that option and it worked like a charm.”

Robert Izzett explains, “The great thing about Prolyft is they have this option available. We turn a single reeve motor into a double reeve that halves the speed but doubles the capacity. The process takes ten minutes and can even be done on site if need be.”

Juan loves his motors and ends, “DWR have been instrumental in the service they have given us and no matter what time of the day you phone them, even if it’s a simple question, they are delighted to assist.”

The Prolyft Aetos range

The reason we choose to buy Prolyte products is not only because they have great products, I think it¹s the sales support and service they supply that really were decisive for our choice.
