With a start in theatrical lighting that spun into dimming and control, it was only a matter of time before we hoisted ourselves into rigging systems. Adding rigging to our product offerings in 2009 was a new adventure. With hoists in theatres and arenas across the US, we are able to say more completely that we offer a full system to our customers.
Rigging technology hadn’t changed in decades. Many of the same techniques used on sailing ships hundreds of years ago, are still being used in theatres today. We set out to change that. Using a system of motors and pulleys instead of ropes and hand breaks, we
refined a system that can now boast unmatched safety records. This is important in middle schools and high schools, as well as stadiums and arenas around the country. That’s exactly where you’ll find ETC rigging.
