Static and dynamic load suspension regulation

Recommended Posts


I came across a discussion at my job site and would like other opinions based on regulative laws regarding suspending loads over performers heads by the means of synthetic or natural fibre ropes on a theatre environment 

Is it legal?

if so, what are the requirements?

Here in Portugal is hard to find information on the subject 

Your participation would be very helpful

Suspension of loads over stage by means of synthetic of natural fibre ropes in a theatre is, indeed, legal. 

For the requirements, I would direct you to EN 17206 , as well as the more general requirements for lifting equipment as per the EU Machinery Directive.

Hope this is helpful.
