Whether you are planning a concert, a business conference, a tradeshow, or any event that requires audio and video installation, rigging is something that cannot be ignored. While it may not be the first thing that many people think of when plotting out their dream event, proper rigging is absolutely essential to ensuring the safety of your attendees and the best-possible audio and video experience for everyone in attendance. When it comes to rigging for your event, there is a lot to consider.

Our event production specialists know that rigging is a critical component of erecting the video LED walls and screens, audio systems, lighting equipment, and staging required to capture the attention and imagination of your event attendees. Proper rigging requires years of experience as well as intimate knowledge of different techniques and the ability to juggle many considerations. Several of our team have trained extensively as riggers and have even toured the world with A-list artists as their Tour Rigger.

Safety is our absolute top priority when planning and implementing the rigging structure during any event. The experts here at Event Production Services have the skill and experience required to design and implement rigging with correct weight limits to completely avoid any potential accidents or complications. This includes a thorough understanding of the weight limits of all the rigging equipment and its relationship to the loads and the venue.

Some venues and outdoor events have no practical ability to support rigging from the ceiling. In these instances, we offer our climbing tower system. This is an extremely reliable and significantly load bearing trussing system that uses chain motors to climb vertical truss towers to raise the sound,video, and lighting. One of our systems uses 2 sets of four 45’ tall towers to raise a large LED wall and line array outdoors for a large commencement ceremony at Bucknell University. These are stamped by engineers as rated for 65 mph winds.

Our Rigging Services include providing and installing the following necessary equipment items:

  • Trusses – conventional and circle
  • Chain motors
  • Flyware
  • Ground Support Climbing Truss Systems
  • Staging Support
  • Safety Equipment
  • All sorts of hardware and oddities.
  • Traveler tracks, even to move LED walls.
  • Curved pipe sets. We can surround an audience with video screens or drapery, and another set is typically used vertically, either for decor or for LED stripes.
