Theatrical rigging lines

Theatrical

Ropes that perform above and beyond.

Aerial acrobatics. Thousand-pound props. Moving lights and cameras. There’s a great deal of engineering that goes into designing the lines that will hold your performance together. Our experts engineer synthetic lines that meet the design factor and breaking strength requirements your applications demand—providing artists the utmost safety and reassurance on stage.

Made from high-performance fibers that are strong yet soft on the hands, our lines can be custom-built to any theatrical application, and braided to extremely small diameters. Whether that’s a braid optimized for bending for a winch or fine braids built for human flight. Each line is easy to splice and inspect, and is braided torque-free to eliminate twisting under load. All of our solutions are backed with extensive service options, including pre-stretching of ropes, testing, and proof loading.

Theatrical rigging lines

Our synthetics outperform steel wire.

Get synthetic lines for rigging, production, theatrical effects, winches, or anything in between. We can braid rope diameter dimensions that are less than 1mm so they’re practically imperceptible. Most of our rope constructions are available in the color black upon request. While Technora®, Vectran® and polyester fibers are available naturally black; other fibers, such as BOB® or Plasma®, can be coated black. We can also engineer fiber-friendly hardware for your theatrical application to improve rigging and safety. Tap into our engineering expertise and we’ll help design a solution that meets your exact requirements.
