Examples:

  • “Fashion Conveyor” window curtain rod for store fronts in New York. 4-Wheel trolleys are used in a Free Rail to support extremely large curtains for storefront displays. Curtains are closed while employees rearrange displays and change clothing on mannequins. After the display is ready for public viewing, the curtains are pulled back.
  • “Fishveyor” – Rio Casino in Las Vegas. Powered Chainveyor® was used to decorate the ceiling over gaming tables. The system was installed in the ceiling and concealed by an elaborate faux coral reef. Brightly colored, articulated “fish” were hung on the Chainveyor® system. The fish appeared to swim through the coral reef above the gaming tables as though the patrons were under water in the reef!
