Rigging Flight Cases
Stage Roof Before Lifting 3D Flight Cases have experience in supplying flight cases to major touring artists for over 20 years. The rigging industry is a large part of the major stage productions now seen around the world and a job I definitely have not got the nerve to do. Watching a main stage being erected is an eye opener for most people. Rigging is an art in itself with riggers climbing around high up clipping and bolting the stage components together and the positioning the many lifting motor points which eventually hoist the lighting, sound and video into the stage roof and wings.
Rigging Boys Have Been BusyEveryone working on a stage puts the life in the hands of the riggers with 80,000 odd kilogrammes hanging above their heads. 3D Cases designers have built flight cases for all aspects of the rigging, from motorised chain hoist cases, riggers tool cases and for many of the visual props used on stage including the original 1500kg bell hung from stage roof on the AC/DC Hells Bell tour as well as producing the flight cases for the lighter fibre glass version that was used after the first tour.
With much of the rigging equipment being on the heavy side the majority of our rigging flight cases are built using our 12mm construction methods with 18mm internal partitioning adding to the flight case strength and rigidity.
So next time you are at a concert spare a thought for the rigging crew who build and climb these stages in the rain of the English summer to the searing temperatures in the Middle East. Rather you than me guys and hats off to you!
