Rigging

There are several methods of rigging that may be used, depending on the circumstance (i.e.-counterweights, motorized or rope systems) in positioning props and/or people.

General Safe Use Guidelines:

  • Anything attached to a flybar must have a safety cable attached as well.
  • Check that everything attached to a light, including barn doors, gel cases and safety cables, to assure that it is secure before it is raised.
  • Make sure the rope or cord is strong enough for what you are lifting and that the rope or cord is not frayed or damaged in any way.
  • Warn people on the stage or grid before moving any rigged scenery or other objects.
  • Maintain visual contact with a moving piece at all times.
  • If you are using a purchased rigging product, follow manufacturers instructions.
  • The production crew must inspect all rigging equipment before each use.
