Nobody has installed more permanent rigging grids in venues across the country than ARS period. It’s clear when venues are thinking about enhancing their space ARS is the number one choice to install any type of rigging improvement. Venue managers see our crews and equipment go through their space on tours and one-offs time and time again. We are with the production the building is trying to attract. We know the needs and requirements for rigging any show on the road. So who better than ARS to design, build and install a system that lets the riggers rig, and that makes load in and load out a breeze.
