What is Splitbeam?
Splitbeam is a member of the Gearhouse Group of companies. They provide a professional equipment hire service and stockholding that meets the specific needs of the theatre industry and is priced towards long-term rental.
Because they completely understand the challenges of the theatre and long-term rental market, their goal is to provide the best tools and technology for theatre production designers at a “theatre-friendly” pricing.
Most importantly, it is the Splitbeam approach that differentiates their service. Their detail-oriented planning and execution minimises downtime and facilitates quick and neat assembly.
Whether you need a full lighting, audio and audio/visual rig and staffing for an international theatre tour or just a few microphones for your low budget school functions; one of their custom made solutions will work for you.
Splitbeam is focused on quality control and client service ensuring that you will always get the LATEST technology for the BEST price with the LOWEST failure rate.
What do Splitbeam do?
Gearhouse Splitbeam has an equipment rental solution for any project that requires lighting fixtures for an extended period.
Their theatre-based Lighting rental stockholding is comprised of ETC/Altman/L&E and Thomas Conventional fixtures, ETC/Avolite/Zero88 Desks, ETC/Avolite Dimmers, Wybron/Chroma Q Colour Changers and Robert Juliat Follow Spots, as well as the largest stock of Vari*Lite and Source 4 fixtures available in South Africa.
Their audio rental stock holding consists of a range of Midas Pro series mixing consoles, Klark Teknik processing, Meyer Sound loudspeakers, DPA Microphones, Sennheiser radio microphones and In Ear Monitors as well as a wide variety of Electo Voice products. All servicing and maintenance is carried out by their highly skilled staff to stringent quality control standards.
They also fulfill staffing requirements as well, including systems technicians for safe installation and dismantle, operators for the duration of your event and maintenance technicians for service and technical support.
If your requirement is broader than that, take advantage of their Technical Director Service. They can handle all the technical and logistical aspects of your production for you - from the planning stages to completion; liaising on your behalf with designers and venues, generating technical schedules, compiling your technical riders, drawings and budgets, sourcing your rental quotes, handling the shipping documentation for the import/export of sets and costumes, overseeing your set construction, collating your lighting, av and audio packages, booking transport and equipment and hiring crew on your behalf.
All their services can be tailored to your needs - whether you need assistance from the first load-in to the last load-out of your international tour or just need to safely move your show from one local city to the next.
In short, leave the “nuts and bolts” of your production to them so that you can concentrate on the rest.
