VMB has added the TL-A220 to its range of line array lifters

At PLASA 2009 in London, VMB announced the addition of the TL-A220 to its range of line array lifters. A smaller, compact version of VMB's TL-A3200, the TL-A220 can raise 220kg of gear to a height of 5.5 metres.
Designed to be a solution for applications where quick set up of the line array. is required, the gear is loaded directly on to the forks of the lift, cranked up and in a matter of minutes the system is suspended from the lift and ready to play.
VMB explains, "With any other conventional frontal load lift the further along the forks the load is placed the less the lift can support, for example at half a metre conventional lifts lose 30 percent of their load capacity. When lifting a Line Array you need to be able to curve your array. For this reason the Line Array needs to be at a distance from the body of the lift so that it does not touch the profile and so the user can create the desired angle. The TL-A220 can lift the 220kg from half a metre out: This gives the user the chance to curve their array whilst not compromising the 220kg safe working load."
The TL-A220 incorporates the ALS (Auto Lock Security) which was patented by VMB in 1997. The ALS automatically locks the lift in place, releases all the pressure from the cable and ensures that the load will not drop. The lift also comes with lateral support and rear support bars as standard providing further stability. The outriggers have also been carefully designed to add support and accommodate subwoofer cabinets at ground level below the flown top cabinets.
Like all VMB lifts, the TL-A220 is BGV-C1 certified. It weighs in at 95kg and its height for transport is 1.7m.
