How it Works

HOW AV-DROP WORKS

NO TOOLS REQUIRED 

AV-Drop has been specifically designed to be 100% tool-lessThis allows for quick & easy installation and strike, and a measurable cost savings for labor. Even an inexperienced team can easily assemble this product​, versus the difficulty of traditional hard wall flats.

How to Assemble AV-DROP

The build process begins by assembling click-together modular aluminum frames. These frames are offered in varying sizes and shapes starting with the basic “A” and “F” framesFlat walls are built by attaching frame to frame and adding extenders to enlarge to your needed size.  Angles and radiuses allow for further customization of your design.  All parts are connected with specialty clamps and unions that are at the heart of its’ tool-less assembly.

Once assembled, the frames are covered in light blocking, flame retardant solid or print fabrics that Velcro onto the frames for a perfect fit.

AV-Drop walls are capable of reaching over 20’ high in unlimited widths with ground supported jacks and can go even higher when flown.

AV-DROP’S MODULAR FRAMES OFFER AN INCREDIBLE 2:1 STORAGE AND TRANSPORTATION CAPACITY ADVANTAGE VERSUS TRADITIONAL THEATRICAL FLATS

Big things really do come in small packages! Our single largest component is our 5’h x 4’w “A” Frame. ​All of our other components scale down from there, including our 5’h x1’w “F” Frames and extensions. You can store and transport 2x the amount of AV-Drop materials vs traditional scenic elements utilizing ​half the amount of space. Save Time! Save Money! Save Space!

1 pallet of AV-Drop = an entire bay of standard flats. ​

Our reduced footprint in the warehouse is another reason why AV-Drop is in a class of its’ own. ​
