The BroadWeigh Stage Rigging Technology is Adopted by Australia’s Entertainment Sector
UK based Mantracourt is celebrating the sales of its BroadWeigh™ wireless load monitoring systems into the Australian stage and entertainment sector.
With the technical and sales support of Botany based The Rigging Shop, Mantracourt have sold a number of BroadWeigh™ systems that are now being used for concert halls, touring companies and stage shows. The BroadWeigh™ system provides essential measurements of force and thereby helps operatives avoid overload of design parameters.
The Rigging Shop sells many products aimed at the entertainment rigging industry and also supplies similar equipment to other industrial and commercial industries. The Rigging Shop was appointed as BroadWeigh’s Australian Technical Partner early in 2014 and has experienced a lot of interest in this product range.
“We are delighted with the sales and support effort provided by the team at The Rigging Shop,” said Kelly Voysey, Sales and Marketing
Manager at Mantracourt. “Key to our brand is industry knowledge and experience, as we strive to provide a high level of customer service. In this respect, The Rigging Shop has been an excellent choice of Technical Partner to represent BroadWeigh in this region.”
The BroadWeigh portable wireless system offers real-time, simple, effective and accurate load monitoring for rigging professionals, safety officials and site managers enabling them to monitor and log the precise loads on any given rigging point.
Central to the design of the BroadWeigh system are Crosby shackles equipped with a high accuracy, wireless load pin that reports data remotely to a computer or a handheld display. The system is able to monitor multiple load cells and can trigger an alarm should a load exceed a preset parameter.
“We are delighted to be partnering with such an innovative company as Mantracourt, in marketing the BroadWeigh system in our region,” said Mike Stephenson at The Rigging Shop. “The Broadweigh system is already making a name for itself in the Australian entertainment industry where load monitoring is becoming increasingly necessary.”
The BroadWeigh system is increasingly being seen as a cost effective solution for entertainment venues, touring companies and production suppliers, to provide essential measurements of force helping operatives eliminate overload risks. The BroadWeigh system has been developed in conjunction with entertainment industry professionals for real world work environments.
