Stage & Events
Stage entertainment is all about delivering superb performances, but it is what’s behind the scenes that makes all the difference, especially when it comes to safety and the technology covered by EN 17206.
Throughout the industry, riggers and installers are using our UK-made Guard load arrestors as load securing devices for safeguarding lighting and sound equipment that is suspended above people. Guard Load Arrest in Stage / Theatre is being increasingly utilised under EN 17206:2020 as a secondary safeguard for entertainment technology.
If your primary load bearing equipment fails, the Guard load arrestor will automatically stop the load from falling, thereby preventing damage to the equipment and, more importantly, protecting the audience/performers below.
The Guard's cable automatically extends and retracts, following the movement of the load. This is ideal for loads that need to move, and often means the cable often does not need to be disconnected when changing lights or speakers.
