Installing a Tension Wire Grid System

High Level Access Platform Solutions

The Cablenet ‘virtual floor®’ – a high level access platform woven from steel wire rope – has had a major impact on auditoria design, not only in theatres and other dedicated performance centres such as multi-purpose venues and arts centres but even in school buildings and external applications.

Instead of having to incorporate fixed position walkway structures or scaffold towers to provide overhead access to lighting and rigging equipment, architects and theatre consultants can now install an all-encompassing Cablenet tensioned wire grid, one capable of covering a complete theatre, even a whole exhibition hall.

These permanent, high level platforms are virtually invisible from ground level and cast no shadow from lighting rigs positioned above. Most important of all, a Cablenet virtual floor® is strong enough to carry the weight of sound and lighting engineers, and provide the perfect platform for riggers to rig through.
