Theatres and Concert Halls
Cable reels with spring powered automatic rewind provides a convenient way of supplying
moving appliances with electrical energy.
The range of equipment supplied by Metool Reeling Products Ltd for Theatres, Concert Halls
and similar venues has been designed and developed with the benefit of over 50years
in this field. There are numerous installations of our equipment working very successfully in
many countries worldwide
The reels can be built to suit the various requirements of modern day venues i.e lighting,
ethernet, DMX,speakers etc. This is achieved by varying the slipring assembly within the reel
to suit the requirement of the customer (i.e Gold on Gold slipring assembly for ethernet applications).
Case Study No. 1: Royal Albert Hall
Metool Reeling Products have recently completed an installation of cable reels in the dome
of the Royal Albert Hall in London. The installation consisted of a large number of our SC75
carrying up to 40M of 18C cable to provide power to the lighting bars and also a number of
our SC30 reels fitted with special Gold on Gold slipring capsules to provide Ethernet signals
to the lighting Bars.
Due to space restrictions the SC75 cable reels were supplied as a kit of parts and the Metool installation team assembled the reels in their final position.
The reels were finished to our standard Poppy Red powder coat finish
Case Study No. 2: Greighallen – Bergen – Norway
Metool Reeling Products are pleased to have supplied a number of cable reels to
ATEA for the Greighallen in Bergen, Norway. Following discussions with the
consultants for this project our supply consisted of:

10 SC30 type reels with Gold on Gold slipring capsules and 31M of a cat 5e reeling cable to provide the controls.

These reels were completed to our Black powder coated finish which we use as a optional finish for all reels to be used in Theatres.
