Fewer industries run as a better-oiled machine than the world of Rental and Staging. Much like a symphony composer (but with a more haggard schedule and better taste in 90’s Grunge Rock)- leaders of R&S know what instruments it takes to create the exact ambience their audience craves. The criteria for good product is simple: It needs to be universal, it needs to maximize component compatibility, it needs to be safe and durable, it must be quick and easy to setup and teardown and it needs to provide for the high demand of cutting-edge final presentation. To anybody in the Rental and Staging world, none of this is “news,” but this isn’t a blog to reiterate challenges. Premier Mounts is a Solutions Company.
One of the biggest concerns in R&S is ensuring that each product being used is universal and compatible to any customer-requested configuration. Therefore, it’s essential to have a sufficient supply of universal projector and flat-panel mounts that can be easily assembled, proficiently used, disassembled and then reconfigured for the next project. Projector mounts like the PDS-PLUS offer customers a low-profile rental option, which has a loyal following due to its universal compatibility, cable routing, Lock-It ™ security hardware, OSHPD approval and UL Listing. For customers seeking flat-panel displays, the CTM-MS2 mount offers 12 degrees of tilt in a universal format and can be mounted to walls, floor stands, carts and ceilings. From there, a variety of configurations can be made using cart or stand packages like the EB72-MS2. Poles are offered at various lengths and are interchangeable with stand and cart bases across the Premier Mounts product line. Adapter plates like the PP-5 also enable universality by allowing a variety of mounts to adapt to whatever displays and projectors a project might require.
MAXIMIZED COMPONENT COMPATIBILITY
Each R&S installation is unique, which requires flexibility for product components to be easily rental site-transferred. Thus, having mounts that can be altered to switch from a wall to a floor to a ceiling is hugely important for versatile job-to-job assembly. The PSD-HDCA clamp adapter is one of the most remarkable adapter innovations on the market, allowing displays to be mounted to carts and stands in under a minute using one-person assembly and with no special tools required. The PCC-1-1-2 and PCC-2 Cheesebrough Adapters work with 2” tube truss and mate directly to most adjustable-height suspension adapters- offering flexible ceiling mount options with site-to-site compatibility. When ceiling-flown video walls are the request of the day, our MVWS-2×2-4655, as well as a variety of other MVWS video wall stand configurations, are easily reconfigured to morph from floor to ceiling-mounted, all while offering complete component breakdown for easy shipping, handling and moving.
SAFETY AND DURABILITY CONCERNS
Large-scale events such as concerts require specific planning for safety concerns and UL-Listing requirements. One of the initial draws that the R&S industry looks to Premier Mounts for is the spanning reputation for reliable, sturdy mounting solutions. The top companies in the Rental and Staging industry have unanimously declared their affinity to Premier Mounts’ sturdy and versatile products like the PSD-BW mobile nesting cart. It includes the PSD-HDCA adapter, works with several display mounts, has 4 heavy-duty casters and features a durable base design that will not only roll easily through standard doorways but is also the perfect nesting design perfect for tight storage spaces. It’s this notoriety throughout the industry that also allows for ease of cross-company product subleasing as well, making availability a non-issue throughout neighboring R&S companies.
EASY SETUP AND TEAR DOWN
When time is of the essence, easy setup and tear down of rental and staging equipment is key. Equipment must be easy to transport, store, assemble and break down. Products like the BW-BASE are space savers, minimizing storage requirements with an open design. Mobile Video Wall Stands, such as the MVWS-1×3, completely break down for easy transport, while the TL-BASE Floor Stand Base includes the PSD-HDCA adapter and features ergonomic transport handles with lightweight design. Each of our floor stand or cart bundle products, like the TL72-RTM, include a variety of easy-to-assemble components that are perfect for the fast-paced project lifespan of rental and staging.
UPDATED PRODUCT REQUESTS
Being successful in the Rental and Staging industry means (insert booming voice here) giving customers the most cutting-edge, remarkable, jaw-dropping visual displays their world has ever seen. With consistent requests for the latest and greatest in projectors and displays, knowing the right people and stocking the right mounting solutions is pivotal in staying ahead of the curve. Premier Mounts maintains close relationships and partnerships with some of the biggest names in the industry, enabling early access to the upcoming product releases and market trends. Combine that with a flexible and creative design engineer team, and even a curveball of a product becomes as easy as, “of course we can do that.”
