Unicyc

 

Overview

UNICYC is constructed from four identical square aluminium tubes spaced apart by an H-section extrusion, These components are held together using M6 screws that lock into continuous threaded slots in the track tubes. The system can be purchased either fully assembled or as a kit that can be assembled with a cordless driver. The system is available in lengths up to 6m long. Curves are available with a minimum radius of 1m.

The track has been developed with the specific needs of T.V. studio installation in mind.

Dropout sections, side stretch beams and floor tracks are all available with this system.

Specification

UNICYC is constructed from four identical aluminium extrusions joined together by a further H-section extrusion. The four extruded rails incorporate an open slot with an extruded thread to engage with the fasteners which locate the H-extruded track clip enabling the clips to be spaced according to the load being carried at that point in the track run, a valuable feature in TV studios where the cyclorama cloth is parked in a bunch and can impose the maximum load over the shortest distance. Sections of track are joined together using four steel spigots and setscrew fasteners. UNICYC comes in its natural aluminium finish unpainted.

UNICYC can be ordered and delivered in kit form for customer assembly, with straight sections available in lengths of up to 6m, and a box containing H-clips, spigots and fasteners enabling rapid assembly on site using a cordless screwdriver.

The arrangement of the four extruded rails mimics the spacing of UNITRACK rails and therefore all the suspension fittings designed for with UNITRACK can be used with UNICYC.

The UNICYC points system is a requirement in TV studios where twin or triple cyclorama tracks are used. This is the only points system for curtain tracks available as an off-the-shelf product and is provided in both ‘Y’ and ‘crossover’ types. They have also been designed to have the smallest number of moving parts to ensure reliability and ease of maintenance. Both manual and electric operation are available options. The standard track centres for this system is 150mm.

If the track upright clip clashes with a suspension point, all you need to do is slacken the clip fasteners and slide it out of the way before re-tightening. By the same process, should any track sections become damaged, it can simply be removed and a new extrusion fitted.

The runners for UNICYC are twin wheeled and therefore can be inserted or removed anywhere along the track run, a useful feature on long track runs.
