    I’m sat at home bored so I thought I’d share with you a few photos of a job I recently completed.

    The project was a small theatre and comprises of 14no. Inverter driven pilewind bars over the stage area for hanging theatre lights, drapes and scenery etc from. Each bar is rated to half a ton.

    There is also 16 outlets for chain hoists which are rated to lift one ton each.

    The entire installation is controlled via a touchscreen which can be plugged in to various outlets around the stage area.

    Here are the bars moving. The system allows up to four bars to fly at the same time.

    Picture 7 told me what it was and the Flints box in picture 8 confirmed my suspicions

    This is a job I worked on a couple of years ago. They got a lovely brand new installation of 40no. counterweight flying bar sets.

    The venue I normally frequent until all this madness happened has 65no. half ton counterweight sets, and I much prefer them to motorised bars, except when we have to haul them in and out while loading and unloading them!

    I've not had much involvement in this field but flying in and out several hundred Kg of curtain and track or lights with the lightest of touch got me every time. Never had to load the weights but I can imagine it's hard work.

    When I was at Uni (London) they use to pay us in beer to shift the weights in The Collegiate (now Bloomsbury) Theatre :)
    My local theatres are all hemp sets, which is where I learnt to fly in earnest.

    These days, I prefer pyrotechnics - much lighter!
