ESTA announced that two draft rigging standards are now available to the public for review and comment through November 11, 2003.

The “BSR E1.4, Entertainment Technology—Manual Counterweight Rigging Systems” describes the design and construction of manually powered, counterweight rigging systems. The primary purpose of this standard is to enhance the safety of the system, which is used in theaters.

The “BSR E1.8, Entertainment Technology—Loudspeaker Enclosures Intended for Overhead Suspension: Classification, Manufacture and Structural Testing” describes the structural requirements for loudspeaker enclosures intended for overhead suspension, which include enclosure construction, component part security, enclosure suspension hardware, manufacturing control systems, structural testing and product representation. The standard is intended to enhance the safety of overhead speakers at music concerts and other public performances by helping to ensure that the speaker enclosures and the connections to the rigging hardware are suitably strong.

Copies of the draft documents and the public-review forms are available online at www.esta.org/tsp or by requesting copies from ESTA’s technical standards manager, Karl G. Ruling, via mail at 875 Sixth Ave., Ste. 1005, New York, NY 10001; 212/244-1505; fax 212/244-1502; standards@esta.org.
