Extra Wide Scissor Lift Covers Sound Booth Pit

Custom-made extra wide scissor lift designed to lower roof into sound booth pit at Millennium Park / Jay Pritzker Pavilion.


The Challenge

The Jay Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park in Chicago wanted to demo the existing sound booth and build a low profile booth. The project included adding a retracting roof and a scissor lift that would lower the roof into the pit during concerts. 

The Autoquip Solution

Autoquip specially designed an extra-wide scissor lift to meet the specifications of the sound booth project:

  • Platform measuring 244” W x 116” L
  • Smooth steel platform surface with access cover
  • Travel up limit switch set to 24” travel or raised height of 36”
  • Hydraulic locking pins that automatically extend and retract as part of the lift’s up and down operation
  • Audible signal with volume control & red flashing light
  • 12,390 rated capacity
  • Customer supplied rails for retractable roof

Solution Benefits

Through our custom design capabilities, we were able to build a scissor lift to exact spec. The scissor lift lowers the roof down and out of sight during concerts, but also works to raise the roof to cover the sound booth walls when there is nothing going on at the pavilion.
