Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 9, 2009 – Flexible Lifeline Systems, Inc. today announced the successful completion of the rigging grid fall protection systems at the Berry Center in Houston, TX.
The unique project involved the design and installation of cable-based fall arrest systems to protect riggers while servicing the Cirque du Soleil show. This innovative fall arrest system conforms to the size and shape of the rigging grid providing continuous fall protection around the entire system. The use of Latchways’ patented constant force technology reduced the need for substantial reinforcement to the grid due to their patented energy absorbing design resulting in an economical, user-friendly system. The systems were designed, engineered and installed by Flexible Lifeline Systems on time and under budget. CY Fair ISD’s Mr. Jim Vangorder stated, “We appreciate the prompt eagerness to assist the district with a need with a short deadline. We also appreciate the willingness to work around the schedule of the building to allow events to occur as scheduled.”
“This is another great example of our ability to mitigate unique fall hazards for our customers using our wide range of fall protection solutions.” said Andy Townend, President of Flexible Lifeline Systems. “We are pleased to be able to provide a system to protect the riggers servicing the Cirque du Soleil show and the Berry Center.
