Gearhouse riggers support Idols 2018


Congrats to Yanga Sobetwa for an exciting win on Idols 2018!!

This years Idols brought us another epic design by well-known designer Joshua Cutts. Gearhouse provided the rigging element for the show. which required some extra preparation from a rigging aspect due to the nature of the truss shapes, weight displacement of technical equipment on these trusses and to achieve the specific angles required by the designer.

A lot of bridle calculations were necessary to ensure a perfect rig as per the plot and weight displacement to the venue roof.and some serious planning to ensure that the look was not compromised in any way.

A team of 6 riggers together with a Head Rigger delivered a flawless installation again this year which was completed in a mere 3 days.

The Idols rig included

25 x Half Ton CM Electronic Hoists

18 x 1 Ton CM Electronic Hoists

2 x 2Ton CM Electronic Hoists
