Rigging Policy

  2. Harvest Productions will provide all rigging hardware (truss up + span sets) including spanner truss when needed to obtain desired rigging points.
  3. Specialty trussing or trussing outside of Harvest Productions inventory listed below can be provided by the client with approval from Harvest Productions.
  4. A rigging plot with load factors, equipment counts, and equipment positions, and cable picks must be submitted electronically no later than four (4) weeks prior to scheduled move-in. 
  5. Harvest Productions is required to approve all rigging plots. All plots must have published weight points. 
  6. The number of riggers required will be decided by Harvest Productions and reasonably based on size and production schedule of the event. 
  7. All special and unusual weights, motors, truss, rigging apparatus or items not normally hung must obtain written permission from Harvest Productions. Exceedingly large rigs that support abnormal loads, live loads, or non-uniform distribution of weight or hardware, may require plans that have been approved and stamped by a licensed engineer selected by facility management.

  12. Structures must be engineered and rated by the manufacturer for use in the desired manner.
  13. All beams and ceiling joists must be protected with carpet or adequate material wherever wires and cables make contact, unless they are rubber or plastic coated.
  14. Wires and cables must not make contact with any ceiling structures, including, but not limited to, ducts, pipes, speakers, and lighting fixtures.
  15. No rigging will be allowed from Air Wall Tracks.
  16. No additional holes will be made in plaster, or any ceiling material, for additional rigging points without prior approval of the Facility Manager.
