I am designing a "hymn numbers board" for my church, where the numbers for each hymn to be sung during that service are displayed. The church floor is flat, so that during the service, the bottom of the board needs to be at least 8' above the floor. However, to put in the hymn numbers before each service, the choir leader needs to be able to roll it down easily, quickly and safely to slide in the new numbers. Choir directors may not be able to reach up more than 6' to the top of the board so the bottom of the board must slide down to about 2'.
With a continuous cord loop at the top, it could be pulled up and down. But I want to have tracks on each of the right and left sides of the board, so it can't fall down and crush someone. Your window casement track looks excellent for that - but I will also need 2 clips in Can mount onto the back of the board to run in the tracks.
Strange as it may seem to you, the church's altar is in the middle of the church and the congregation sits on both sides. So the board must be visible from both sides. The brick wall has a brick inside vertical brick girder running up it that is 18" wide and projects 8" from the wall. Each of the two sides of the board are slanted back into triangular shapes so the hymn numbers can be read from that end of the church.
1. Can I buy 6' pieces of the track from you - at what price and how would I order?
2. Can I buy clips that would fit into each track on the side, so the hymn board does not fall out on the
choir -and at what price?
3. Can you recommend a manufacturer of a continuous cord loop system, that I could order that from
as the raising and lowering mechanism for the board?
Thanks for your time and interest.
