|Floor pocket ID is being discussed in the ControlBooth Lighting and Electrics forum; Hey everyone. I'm looking for a bit of help here. I need to replace two floor pocket covers in our ...|
I've seen this before in a theatre that was built in the 60s/70s. I doubt you'll be able to find an equivalent as when the theatre was renovated, the original floor pockets were kept - I'm assuming the company has gone out of business.
You might try (if you can and are comfortable) removing the entire pocket, there might be some information on the bottom of the pocket.
it looks very much like the ones I have. StageCraft did the install in 1986.
I think you would need to contact them with the photo and dimensions.

If this is not an Altman FF-701, I would be very surprised. If it is not a FF-701 I strongly suspect one would be a fine replacement.
I'm sure there are Altman dealers closer than me, but if not, let me know.

Instead of spending time and money trying to find the same pocket cover, it would probably be more economical to replace the covers completely with one that will fit the dimensions of your pocket.
Altman specs have, I'll go ahead and order from Mainstage.
We have some of the same floor pockets. Ours are SSRC branded. The hinges (such as they are) are broken on almost all of our covers. Is that the problem with yours as well? I've never looked into replacing them as I'm afraid the new hinges would just break in short order.
