Indiana State University
Hulman Center

951 Sycamore Street
Terre Haute, IN 47809

Job was completed in 2005. The Hulman Center is an arena that is used for basketball and a concert venue. Approximately 10 years ago we installed 25 motorized winches with a computerized control. The project that was completed in 2005 was a wedge curtain system that when used gives the arena the look of a theater. The job was challenging as the curtain height at the arena floor is approximately 80 feet and as the curtain follows the slope of the seats is approximately 20 feet. The drive systems for each of the two wedge curtains is a 110 foot line shaft winch with drums every 3' for wrapping the cable and raising the curtain. Since the curtain was cut on a slope the drums needed to be machined to specific diameters in order that the curtain stack in the same place when fully raised.
