The Rowland Company is pleased to announce the introduction of a proprietary Patent Pending brake design used in the stage rigging industry. This safety brake device is designed specifically for use in raising / lowering of theater curtains and orchestra pits with future expansion into any entertainment venue that involves the raising and lowering of stage equipment such as light standards and scenery. Two of the most important features of the brake design, aside from safety, are quiet operation and minimal wear / maintenance of the brake unit. The design has wide spread adaptability to other industries such as power generation, crane elevators, and mining.
Established in 1732 as a premiere manufacturer of springs (for carriages and wagons), saws, spades, shovels and other like farm tools, The Rowland Company has transitioned to a specialty, niche distributor and fabricator. Today, we distribute industrial power transmission products such as brakes, clutches, couplings, drive shafts, crane electrification, friction material and related items. Additionally, we have a machine shop for the assembly / modification of our product to meet the specific requirements of our customers. We deal with a wide spectrum of industries such as steel, rail, marine, port authorities, power generation, mining, paper and most recently entertainment.
