During rehearsals, Load Cell Rental’s Colin Luke headed down to Millennium Studios, to complete a weight report on the custom elements of the flown production. With the band playing a series of festivals, it was important to have an independently certified weight of the items that would be installed for each show. LCR also weighed various combinations of lighting fixtures, giving a clear picture of the total weight to be hung.
Cells were installed on each point at load in, and readings we taken throughout the rehearsal period, allowing a comprehensive report to be produced. “The independent nature of the report, backed by calibration certificates and appropriate insurance, removes any doubt when negotiating the installation of touring production elements into a festival,” said Luke.
