Rigging Demo Today! Make sure you are there!

Richard Tregoweth - Wednesday, January 27, 2010



Rossy Ross, from Pro Climb dropped in yesterday for a last minute gear check and to discuss the final details for the demo today. Start time for the rigging demo is 10:00am on the corner of Banks and Boakes Road in Mt Wellington, Auckland.

First up, Rossy will demonstrate the various bollard options as compared to the classic Port-A-Wrap and discuss both benefits and downsides relative to each device. Sections of the gum will then be rigged showing each of the bollards in action.

A separate section of the demonstration will revolve around slack removal and lifting, using a traditional block and tackle, the Stein RC-3100 and RC-3002 and the Good Rigging Control System (GRCS).

Participation is the key to the success of this event so come prepared to ask plenty of questions and to get involved.

If you can't make the rigging demo to see how it is done live, check out the video below from Reg Coates covering the various mounting options for the RC-3002.
