Theatre and stage engineering

Every stage is unique. That is why each component must not only be effective, durable and efficient, but must also fit together perfectly. Theatre and stage engineering presents special technical challenges, including moving heavy loads, such as trusses, stage lighting and stage sets, or entire stage platforms safely and reliably. Technical equipment must not interfere optically or acoustically with the performance. igus® offers energy supply systems, highly flexible cables and polymer bearings that meet these exact requirements. igus® provides modular systems and a wide range of components making it possible to implement customised applications quickly and easily.

How organised is your stage cable management?

In the UK, the stage and theatre industry is huge and having an organised stage cable management system is crucial. Most of the chaos tends to be behind the scenes at theatres and finding loose cables lying around is not unheard of, but these can be the source of some major issues. 
Space constraints can cause problems for designers and engineers in the stage and theatre industry, so products such as the igus® e-spool® and zig zag chains are ideal for such applications which require stage cable management.
