Prolyte Installation for Doornroosje

One of the most renowned pop stages in The Netherlands, Doornroosje in Nijmegen, has completely revamped.
The prestigious project encompasses student housing and the Doornroosje pop venue, comprising of two stages, the main auditorium and the small auditorium.

Prolyte distributor Controllux was requested to quote for the complete technical installation, including Prolyte truss, stages and ProLyft hoists.

As part of their meticulous preparation, venue lighting technician Robbie van Rheen and his colleagues, Ed Spaargaren and Maarten Verdwaald, came to Prolyte at an early stage, to discuss the ins and outs of the desired installation. Based on the rock solid advice from both Prolyte and Controllux, their choice for Prolyte was a well-deliberated one.

For both the main auditorium and the small auditorium a variety of Prolyte products were selected, like the H40R and H40V truss in black powder coating, rolling risers from Litedeck and StageDex decks for the DJ area’s.

Overall, no less than 34 ProLyft Aetos hoists were installed for all the moving grids, using a combination of the 250kg, 500kg and 1000kg hoists.


Furthermore also Prolyte crowd barriers, H30V truss for the foyers and Protrac for the main stage were brought in.

As Gerrit Schottert from Controllux commented: ”That’s why working with Prolyte works so well, not only do they give excellent support, the fact that they offer a one-stop-shop where I can get all the hardware for a complex installation like the Doornroosje venue makes our life as installer much easier. The whole installation went flawless, also thanks to the backing from Prolyte team”.

Managing director from Doornroosje, Toine Tax, just awarded as best venue director in the Dutch pop sector expects growth for the future, based on the enlarged capacity, but also on the planning of quality acts.
