Flyhouse Presents at the New World Rigging Symposium

Posted by Flyhouse on Mar 13, 2018 2:57:52 PM

The New World Rigging Symposium, presented by ESTA and USITT, is a two-day event allowing riggers of all levels to come together and help further the industry with new ideas and discussions.

As part of the 10 sessions being held, Flyhouse’s Director of New Product Development, Eric Rouse, participated in Tuesday’s chain hoist discussion called, “Damn it, Jim. I’m a Chain Hoist, Not a Winch.”

“We are discussing chain hoists and how they are sometimes used by people the same way you would use a cable winch,” said Rouse. “Most of the time, this is not appropriate due to the fact that a winch typically has bells and whistles (safety features) that a chain hoist does not have.”

Eric’s involvement at the first-ever U.S. held symposium is no surprise due to his reputation as a trainer and a rigger who has a substantial crossover in the different areas of rigging.

The New World Rigging Symposium is being held in conjunction with the annual USITT Conference and Stage Expo.
