Wat is rigging?
If you ever attend events, you have no doubt come across rigging. But what is it really? When we talk about rigging, then we mean anything used to get audiovisual materials into the air at events. This is widely used in concerts, festivals, trade shows, television shoots and theater.
What does rigging mean?
Rigging is a collective term for everything needed to get audiovisual materials into the air. You can think of trusses, motor hoists, hoist controls and chains. By hoisting screens, sound systems and lighting into the air, everyone at the event gets the perfect experience.

Trusses are aluminum structures that are linked together and form the basis of rigging at events. They come in many different shapes and sizes, so the required structure can always be built. Audiovisual materials such as screens, sound systems and lighting are then hung from this.
Raising heavy trusses and audiovisual materials requires considerable force. This is done through motor hoists. This lifts the materials up and then attaches them to the structure. Motor hoists also include the matching accessories, such as hoist controllers and chains.
The structure consists of a variety of separate elements, so you can decide what materials you need for your event.
What is the benefit?
For large event venues, rigging is essential. Proper construction ensures that everyone can enjoy an event and have the same experience.
This is because the sound has to travel a long distance to reach everyone. Using the right materials, sound systems can be lifted into the air, giving the sound a longer range. By attaching screens to the trusses, even people further away can see what is happening in front. In addition, lighting creates a completely different experience. So without rigging, there really is no light, image and sound.
It is not only important for large events, but also at small events it can have a great effect on the appearance.
