Students and staff at the ACS school in Cobham, Surrey recently welcomed the installation of a Cablenet Tension Wire Grid in their new Performing Arts Centre.

The 200 square metre, custom-made tension wire grid was designed and installed above the entire 509-seat auditorium and stage.

The inclusion of the Cablenet ‘virtual floor’ means that students have the opportunity to explore the technical side of performing arts, working with sound and lighting systems via the walk-on grid. Access is safe and easy, removing the need for scaffolding towers and fixed walkways.

The walk-on tension wire grid helps students explore theatre sound and lighting from above.

Key features

  • 200 square metre grid
  • Groups of students can be taught directly on the grid
  • Covers the entire 509-seat auditorium
