Cablenet tension wire grid platforms create a permanent overstage Virtual Floor® strong enough to carry the weight of sound and lighting engineers, while offering the freedom to light and/or rig through virtually any point.

Tension wire grid systems are now an accepted and proven method of delivering safe and easy access to high level services. What’s special about Cablenet is its flexibility, and the service and technical know-how behind it.

Specifiers prefer Cablenet for its ability to meet the challenge of unique shapes, sizes and working load requirements. Avoid making costly and sometimes questionable structural changes just to accommodate cookie-cutter rectangular grid systems - specify a Cablenet tension wire grid that’s as aesthetically pleasing as it is safe and secure.
Consultants appreciate Slingco's support and help when designing the right tension wire grid solution for their facility. We understand venue spaces are designed to meet a wide range of needs - and adjusting your space or limiting staff creativity to meet a one-size-fits-all system shouldn’t be one of those needs. Enjoy the freedom to create magical experiences for audiences and performers with a Cablenet tension wire grid.
