The Color Festival in Cardiff

Sectors: Stage equipment
Applications: Securing AV equipment weighing 6.3kN (642kg) from sloped beams

Summary:

Securing equipment weighing 6.3kN (642kg) from sloped beams at the Splott Warehouse required a safe rigging unit that would provide resistance to both tensile and frictional loading.
 
The designer chose the Type ALP as it is has a safe working load of 3 tonnes at an angle +/- 18°, so hanging just over half a tonne was light work for Lindapter’s new Adjustable Lifting Point.

The contractor, Spartan Audio, was able to use one type of lifting point throughout the project as the Type ALP adjusts to fit various sized beams, creating additional convenience for the installers. After the dance festival was finished, Spartan Audio team simply reversed the installation procedure and quickly unclamped the lifting system without any damage to the steel beams.
