Why you need rigging services?

Rigging Suppliers provide the rigging needs for all kinds of productions. They have a wide variety of rigging equipment and supplies at their disposal to handle any kind of production need. Rigging Suppliers are able to create custom rigs that fit specific project requirements from start to finish, from design through installation.

What is rigging and how does it work

Rigging is the act of securing objects in place, or working with rigging equipment such as ropes and steel cables. Rigging Suppliers use a variety of rigging techniques to accomplish tasks efficiently and safely on set or location. Rigging Suppliers are able to create custom rigs that fit specific project requirements from start to finish, from design through installation.

Rigging suppliers sells and rents the materials, tools, safety equipment, engineering services or labor involved in supporting any type of production. Rigging Suppliers provide everything from basic scaffolding to industrial cranes for high-rise construction projects.

The rigging department is responsible for assembling, dismantling and maintaining all the equipment on set. Rigging Suppliers fall within this category include grips (riggers), best boys, electricians, carpenters or welders. Rigger jobs are often more dangerous than other departments in filmmaking due to their work with heavy loads that could injure themselves or others if mishandled. The industry requires rigger training programs and certification before a prospective worker can be considered qualified.

Rigging supplier supplies typically includes: ropes, cables, chain slings/shackles, steel wire rope clips; pulleys; sheaves; blocks & tackles; rigging hardware such as hooks and eyes; safety harnesses for specific tasks like tower climbing or aerial lifts.

Rigging Suppliers offer rigging equipment to the film industry, typically for movies and television shows. Riggers are responsible for setting up all the necessary equipment on set in order to ensure that it is safe from heavy weights or other dangers. They also have a responsibility to maintain ropes, cables, chain slings/shackles steel wire rope clips; pulleys; sheaves blocks & tackles.; safety harnesses for specific tasks like tower climbing or aerial lifts.

How to choose the right rigging suppliers for your needs

Wire rope is made from steel, which can be coated in polyurethane to make it stronger and more durable. Synthetic fibers are made from materials like nylon and polyester, so they’re not as strong or durable as wire rope.

Another thing you’ll want to consider if hiring someone new is how they work with your budget so that both parties have adequate expectations set when it comes time for billing–some may charge hourly but others may offer flat rate pricing based on type of rigging and scope of work.  The difference between wire rope and synthetic fibers is that a synthetic fiber is more likely to break when it’s put under too much pressure or tension.

While the cost will be higher, wire rope is going to last longer and hold up better in high-stress situations like rigging for construction of buildings or bridges–it’s also going to cause less damage if it were cut as opposed to a nylon product which would fray and create sharp edges upon being cut.  On top of this, you’ll want someone who can handle larger jobs with ease so consider what your needs are before making any final decisions on what type of supplier would work best for you.

Synthetic fibers are round nylon ropes with a plastic coating that provides protection against abrasion.  They’re less expensive than metal but will require an annual inspection by the National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) or the Rigging Engineering Society (RES).

Wire Rope: This is when you’ll want something strong enough to carry your load all day long without breaking–the most common type of rigging for aerial work. Wire rope comes in many different diameters depending on what you need it for; if you have heavier loads then choose one with a thicker diameter, whereas thinner diameters wire rope is for lighter loads.

Rigging safety tips

When using wire rope, always inspect it for any signs of wear or damage before and after each use–it’s not a one time inspection.

Rigging safety should never compromise productivity; if you need to fix something in order to complete your work safely then do so without hesitation but don’t take shortcuts that could put yourself or others at risk.

Ropes are flexible structures made from twisted strands of material with an outer protective casing called a sheath, which prevents fibers from becoming unraveled. Modern ropes may also have various synthetic coatings applied for extra protection against abrasion and/or chemicals such as polyurethane, and many are now constructed with small fibers that can be woven into the rope’s core for extra flexibility.

The best way to preserve the integrity of your ropes is by keeping them out of the water. At a minimum, you should inspect and dry all rope when it gets wet or after each use–it’s not a one time inspection.  When working on any project that involves ropes in adverse conditions (such as rain) be sure to keep an eye on everyone’s safety and don’t hesitate to fix something if need be but never take shortcuts that could put yourself or others at risk.

Different types of rigging systems

Modern rigging (also called “theatrical rigging”) is a complex system of ropes, blocks and tackle that can be used to create an overhead support system from which lights or heavy scenery can hang. In the past it could also have been employed as scaffolding on film shoots; this was however phased out in favour of modern hydraulic gantries with built-in safety features such as guard rails. The term may refer either to the industry that manufactures and trades in equipment for use by riggers, or more broadly to those who build and maintain rigs themselves.

Systems Riggers use a variety of rigging systems. Some riggers are generalists, and can work out the most efficient system for any given situation; others have specific training in using one or two types.

Rigging Suppliers Rigging suppliers provide equipment to production companies as well as building rigs themselves on-site when required. This may be because they don’t have enough time to get their equipment into place before filming starts, but also it is perfectly possible that at some point during shooting there will be a technical problem which means that something needs replacing quickly and with little fuss – not always easy if you’re busy elsewhere!

Theatrical Rigs Theatrical rigging typically involves ropes rigged from trusses or pipe battens running through sandbags to stabilize scenery on either side of a proscenium arch. The ropes may be rigged in any configuration, but with the trend for using as few stagehands as possible (and it’s generally accepted that anything more than six is too many) the aim should always be to make rigging quick and easy.

Theatrical Rigging Suppliers Specialising in theatre equipment supplies can be tricky because there are so many different ways items need rigs – from backdrops and canvas drops off head-high battens, or lighting fixtures hung at varying heights inside an auditorium – but each rig needs specific knowledge which only suppliers who know what they’re doing can provide.

The benefits of using a rigging company instead of hiring an individual rigger

A company will have staff who know how to rig for all types of productions. The rigging supplier would be an integral part of the production team, and is likely to supply not only rigs but also manufactured scenic equipment such as trusses and battens.

The best way to find out about what’s available in your area is by using our website which has loads more information on one-man or two man shows with typical rigging requirements, as well as theatre requires where there are typically six stagehands plus a Rigging Foreperson carrying out the work before every show – something you’ll need if you’re interested in hiring one professional rope access technician rather than four individual ones.
