Adjustable Church Pulpit

Adjustable lectern Arc2 -70cm/28" wide - anti reflective film

About this adjustable church pulpit:

The It just like the 70cm/28” wide Arc2 pulpit with an anti reflective top- but in addition, its adjustable.

Suitable for use by people in wheelchairs or people who are very tall. It was an engineering challenge- more involved than it looks. This lectern has five different height positions and a special anti slip mechanism, which means it won’t slip down, even if it is not properly tightened. It is the lightest adjustable lectern in its class and can be lifted with one (strong) hand. This lectern comes with anti reflective film. Click here for more information on anti reflective film. 
 

More detail:

The challenge of getting 2 curved tubes to slide within one another proved to be more difficult than we expected.

The idea seemed simple- 2 tubes bent to the same curve, with an adjustment mechanism. However, it turned out to be difficult. It’s the alignment that’s the problem. Making a straight stem that adjusts is easy. Making a curved stem that adjusts is something completely different. At each stop point, everything has to align perfectly. Otherwise the lectern top will tilt slightly to the side. Many of our lecterns are used on TV, so we couldn’t have it tilting slightly. We tried method after method. Finally we ended up with a process that uses 7 welding jigs, and 5 alignment jigs (a jig is a purpose made brace with all sorts of clamps to align something). The stems go back and forth 5 times across Sydney-  while each process is done by us and our specialists. So it all looks simple in the end. But the process of getting there is not simple.  Even after all our efforts, it is a long assembly process by a skilled technician. Every stem requires individual fine adjustments to make it fit and align properly. Each inner and outer stem are matched carefully together by hand. After this it goes though a thorough alignment check to make sure it aligns correctly at each height position.

We developed a non-slip adjustment mechanism to avoid the annoying problem of the pole slipping down mid-sermon. If you have used a music stand to preach from- you may have experienced it slipping down. This mechanism needed to be  reliable, even over many years of use. After much research and development, we came up with a special clicking mechanism. You loosen the wing nut, then click the stem up and down. After that you tighten the wing nut again. It is a mechanism that will still be reliable after years of use.

We re-engineering all the parts to make them as light as possible. We developed a new base to help make it stable on uneven surfaces. The result is that the Arc2 adjustable pulpit is only 2kg/4pounds heavier than the regular Arc2.
 
Overall, the Adjustable Arc2 retains the same style of the regular Arc2 but has been engineered with it’s own parts. They are very different but still look similar. This lectern is a good solution for the very small or very tall.

So what are the disadvantages of the Arc2 adjustable pulpit?
-It is heavier than the regular Arc2. We found that small weigh differences around approximately  8-15 kg feel a lot heavier than they actually are (for example people perceive an extra 2kg to ‘feel’ like an extra 3-4kg). So while its only 2kg/ 4lbs heavier- it feels like more.
-It has a black line where the larger outer tube to the smaller inner tube meet.
-Some churches end up not using the adjustability. So it gets set at one height and is not changed.
- If you are tall, a less expensive option is the tall version of the Arc2. This is 111cm/ 44" to the bottom of the lip where the lower edge of the bible rests (instead of the regular Arc2 at 101cm/ 40").

If you prefer the 60cm wide top with the adjustable pulpit- we can make that change for you. There is no price difference. Please order, and note in the comments that you would like the top to be 60cm wide. Please also email us- to ensure we don't miss it.

Like our other pulpits- it’s made in Australia.
