Production Rigging For TV and Film

Mar. 18, 2021

Production Magic…Behind the scenes, rigging systems are what help turn standard productions into technical marvels. Roof-hung truss assemblies serve as grids for theatrical style rigging, using a system of ropes, cables, sheaves, and counterweights to enable crews to hoist elements quickly such as lights, scenery, stage effects, and sometimes….people!

During this active film season, in addition to providing custom rigging solutions, McLaren has also been busy evaluating loads from production equipment, scenery, cast and crew on a variety of existing building elements, such as roofs, fire escapes, and catwalks. Our entertainment engineers have ensured the structural integrity, system functionality, and safety for countless TV and film productions.
