5 Star’s core industry sector is Entertainment. Under this heading we include Sound & Lighting, Events, Theatre, Special Effects and suchlike. However, we would never be able to list all individual sub-categories within the Entertainment sector. Whilst similar in many respects, we put Audio Visual into a separate sector.
From sound mixing consoles to chain-hoist trunks, special effects cases to media server racks, 5 Star has (or will find) a solution for your case projects. Some of the biggest names in the Entertainment sector have been supplied by 5 Star, including Static Light Co., Philips, Stage Electrics, White Light, DiGiCo, AC-ET, Martin Audio and many more.
Since 5 Star began building cases over thirty three years ago, Entertainment has always been at our roots. With that in mind, our design team is experienced in most areas of this sector, so when it comes to discussing case projects with customers, usually we will be aware of the equipment to be housed and be able to suggest the case layout. Our production staff are also familiar with many aspects of the Entertainment industry, due to the volume of cases produced. However, that doesn’t mean we aren’t experienced in other industry sectors.
All case designs have individual part numbers and are stored in a vast database for easy retrieval. Very often we refer back to an existing part number but modify to the individual customer's requirement, which is then given a 'new' part number.
All case types and specifications are available, from lightweight cases to house small accessories and spares, through to Super Tour road trunks for large lighting, sound and rigging equipment.
Foam inserts are also an important addition to the varied case styles and specifications.
