In the enthralling world of theatre, the magic on stage makes us forget the challenges of preparation behind the scenes. From choreography to lighting, props, and wardrobe, there are multiple variables that need to align to convey the perfect message to the audience. At Design Quintessence, we understand the importance of easy access to your equipment during the exhilarating rush of the performance.
When the spotlight is on you, your focus should solely be on delivering an unforgettable performance. This is where DQ steps in to assist. We can aid you in preparing, designing and creating truss structures that you may require or provide you with custom-fitted cases to accommodate your equipment. Our extensive range of products can cater to your needs, and if they don't quite fit, our talented design team can craft a bespoke solution uniquely tailored to your requirements.
It's crucial to be familiar with some of the components involved in the rigging systems, as they play a significant role in theatre products, even if they are not immediately noticeable:
- Dropper bars: These bars are used to suspend lighting equipment or, with a lighter weight capacity, a few props.
- Suspension brackets: The brackets are employed to hang lighting truss and other structures, depending on the specific requirements of the project.
- Safety wires: Acting as a secondary precaution, safety wires secure rigging, lighting, and other equipment to trusses or stands.
- Cladding couplers: These couplers facilitate the construction of set designs or the application of display panels without requiring special tools.
At DQ, we are passionate about nurturing creativity while upholding high-quality standards and materials. Your safety and that of your team are our top priorities. To ensure excellence, we regularly consult with our well-respected engineering consultancy partners. We are dedicated to meeting your needs, and for that reason, Global Truss can offer you ingenious solutions to challenges, including:
- Creating a truss structure meticulously designed to match the theme of your show,
- Designing a pre-rig truss that can be seamlessly interchanged for different scenes, even serving as a background prop,
- Customising non-slip platforms and stage layouts to precisely match your specifications,
- Providing customisable and durable protective cases that can withstand various accidents without compromising the integrity of your equipment and props during transit.
We stand ready to support your theatrical journey, ensuring you shine brightly on stage while your equipment is efficiently and safely taken care of.
