UCF Creates a Safer Learning Environment for Students

Orlando, FL

SkyDeck tension wire grid with scenery at UCF

Alumni, Students and faculty at UCF’s Theater Department are super excited to finally be working with a brand new SkyDeck™ tension wire grid system. For years the department had wanted to create a better, safer working and learning environment for their students. The original pipe grid was difficult to access. Lighting positions above seating and scenery was impossible to reach without doing a “grid crawl” which consisted of literally crawling out on the grid while wearing a safety harness with two lanyards. Due to this, only a couple of people could actively work on show lighting at the same time.

We (Still) Do Rigging Inspections

Q: How do you know if you need an annual rigging inspection?
A: If you have overhead rigging, then you need an inspection!

We hold these truths to be self-evident...

Happy Fourth of July!

...that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826
