With great events comes great responsibility. The safety of your patrons and performers is the most critical aspect to any festival, concert or event. Sometimes the hype that your show generates becomes so intense that it turns a highly-anticipated performance into a dangerous situation. Fans can rush past security, break down shoddy barricade and endanger security crews, staff, and themselves in the process. Maintaining secure performance areas and safe borders for audiences is easily accomplished with MTN Steel Security Fencing.
Bringing along a member of the Leica Lino line of laser leveling devices is like bringing along another member of the team—one willing to lend a hand with some of the most frustrating tasks. We’ve decided to highlight a mere three of the endless ways in which a Leica Lino device can make your next project a breeze.
1. Accurate & Adaptable Alignment
When you’re on a construction or rigging site, an uneven platform or support structure could have devastating consequences to your accuracy, especially when your project is outdoors.
The Leica DISTO E7400x is here to solve your measuring needs. Built with you in mind, this laser distance measurer, accurate within 1/16 of an inch, is taking down the tape measure and measuring wheel one project site at a time. Here are just four of the countless reasons you deserve this device in your tool belt:
Smart Horizontal Mode
The DISTO E7400x comes with Smart Horizontal technology that allows you to measure the level horizontal distance to a target despite any obstacles that might be in your way. The software provides an angle measurement and uses this to automatically determine your actual horizontal distance. This is certainly not your grandfather’s measuring tape.
Our featured product this week comes from SureFire, a proud U.S. manufacturer of illumination tools, weaponlights, suppressors, high-capcaity magazines, and more. The ultra-compact SureFire Sidekick is a lightweight triple-output LED flashlight that attaches directly to your keys or retractable Lightkeeper clip for instant light when you find yourself in the dark. This product goes beyond the work day, and is ideal for anyone, including children.
Built to last
Many of us have a small lightsource on our key rings for those times at night when you need a quick beam of light. More often than not, these mini flashlights are built cheaply and stop working after a few uses.
Drop Prevention Package
Fall protection is a must, but don’t neglect stocking up on drop prevention items as well. Python Safety’s drop prevention products include tethers, holsters and wristbands that keep your tools and loose items safe from accidental drops at height. Our Drop Prevention Package includes the Hammer Holster (includes Hook2Quick Ring Coil Tether), Adjustable Radio Holster, and Slim Pullaway Wristband (available in SM, MED, and LG). Be a safety role model on site with these 3 reliable products that keep you, and those below you, safe.
Mountain Productions proudly manufactures feeder and fly cables in-house using only the highest quality components. We’ve been assembling cables domestically for years in our electric and cable shop, and are fully capable of custom orders beyond the standard inventory of connectors we carry.
These cables supply power from your power source to your hoist control units, and we can cut any length of cable you may need to power up your system. Our standard lengths are 10’, 25’, 50’, 75’, 100’, 150’ and 200’ and we provide the options for a bare tail or CAM connection.
This week’s featured product is from KASK, an Italian company specializing in developing, designing, and manufacturing safety helmets. KASK’s Super Plasma helmet is ANSI and CSA certified, and provides the user with comfortable protection for the hard work days ahead. (ANSI Z89.1-2014 & CSA Z94.1-2005) KASK’s mission, as stated on their website, is “to maintain a perfect balance between technological excellence, functionality, safety, and attractive design in [its] products.” The Super Plasma helmet is a perfect example of their mission statement. Let’s take a closer look at the Super Plasma helmet.
Ventilation is important for all-day comfort, and the Super Plasma helmet features 10 air intakes and internal outflow channels for ultimate breathability—a must-have feature for those hot summer days. Better yet, the air intakes are equipped with an anti-intrusion grill, preventing the entry of any debris.
We’ve just added two more product bundles to our Rigging Shop – the Down Rigger package and the Stagehand bundle. Take a look at what’s inside:
The essential items for professional down riggers
This product bundle caters directly to down riggers, and the specific equipment they need to get the job done and support their up riggers. Along with personal protective equipment, this package features the Leica LINO P3 three-point laser that is perfect for shooting accurate points up to the grid. (Leica’s tools are accurate to within 1/16th of an inch!) We threw in the Leica GLB30 Red Laser Glasses to improve laser visibility when shooting your points.
It’s already the end of May, and your CM hoists have already hit the road for shows in your summer season schedule. It’s important to maintain and repair any hoists returning from a show so that the next event runs just as smoothly. At Mountain Productions, our motor shop is busy year round performing hoist servicing, repairs, and more, and our in-house inventory of genuine CM replacement parts is extremely diverse.
One of the goals for our e-commerce website was to provide an easy way to quickly find and order CM replacement hoist parts. We’ve separated, organized, photographed, and documented every component of a Classic Lodestar, Next-Gen Lodestar, and Prostar (including both Small and Large Frame models). You won’t find a more comprehensive and detailed inventory of CM replacement hoist parts anywhere on the web.
We’ve just made it even easier to instantly upgrade the essential safety items and tools every rigger, climber, and production worker should have on-site. We’re excited to introduce the addition of product bundles on Mountain Productions Rigging Shop! These bundles have been specially assembled to include the most relevant and reliable gear that is accessible to anyone, regardless of budget. As a bonus value, each of our product bundles includes a FREE Mountain Productions t-shirt and duffel bag! Take a look at our 4 featured product bundles:
