Event Rigging and Truss

Rigging is the process of setting up different types of event equipment on a variety of event structures (trusses) either manually, by cranes, or hoists. Technicians use a variety of rigging equipment – cables, chains, ropes, clamps, straps etc. – to attach equipment to truss. These trusses bear the weight of massive speaker units, dozens of moving lights, hanging LED screens, staging sets, and any else that is in the air during your event.

In order to ensure that everything goes well, load calculations and safety checks are carried out prior to the setup of any structure. Strict engineering rules are applied by all members of AV Alliance to provide safe structures and solutions for all different event types and sizes.
