Versatile, Robust & Precise

The Carousel 5000 platform is exceptionally resistant and robust, yet precise in design. It enables studios to photograph 60+ cars in a single day, and is available in two models. One is easy to install on top of any existing floor space. The other recesses into a studio or showroom floor for easy loading on and off the turntable. In this way, you simply park cars on the rotating platform for a photoshoot, and drive off afterwards. Great for when constructing a new studio, the Carousel 5000 becomes a natural part of any studio floor.


Easy to Keep Clean

Grooves along the rotating plate’s perimeter allow air-driven dirt and dust removal.

Built for the Long-Term

Benefit from long-term, maintenance-free operation thanks to quality design materials. 

Easily Replaceable
