For me the training helped me to refresh, especially as I have been doing this for years and years. It helped me to remember things like maintenance and checking the truss. I think I have grown a lot, it has helped me with my rigging and I understand better than I did before.Godfrey Dhlamini Blond Productions
Prolyte BGR70 truss supplies support for Resistance Ibiza07/12/2017
Resistance, Ultra's world-wide brand and known for its work on some of the largest dance festivals, launched Resistance Ibiza this summer, creating a row of spectacular shows during a 2 months residency in the famous Privilege nightclub. The production for these shows gave the audience an immersive feel and festival-sized extras.
Moving structures, designed and delivered by Vision Lite were designed as centre piece for the audience, equipped with integrated lights, LED screens and multi-media effects. "These 10 frames needed to be supported, so the biggest challenge for the team was to adapt the permanent venue to handle the 6,5 tonnes of dynamic loads, generated by these moving pods" states Adam Gaca, Vision Lite's Production Director. Next to the 6,5 tonnes weight of the moving pods, the lights and sound equipment generated a totall weight of 12 tonnes. In total 6 spans of 25 meter BGR70 truss were used for the complete grid. "We used Prolyte BGR70 truss as main beam and H30V truss as pre-rigged trusses to handle the dynamic loads. Further BGR70 truss was used to create a main mother rig".
All in all, over 150 metre BGR70 truss was used to make the Resistance production possible in this venue. "It's with these kinds of projects in mind that we co-created the BGR70 truss together with Prolyte" comments Willem Loos, "Both Prolyte Group and Unlimited have provided BGR70 truss for several large outdoor festivals, as well as support structures for concerts, like the Rolling Stones and the truss already has proven its worth".
