Theatre Cable

Theatre Cable from Rope Services Direct

Rope Services Direct supplies a range of specifically designed theatre cable for use at theatres and events. The big stage tends to have unique requirements; camouflaging and invisibility tend to be sought after requirements which are much less important in other industries.

Alongside this, the entertainment industry also relies heavily on the other benefits that wire rope provides, namely its strength and long service life. The lifting products in this industry often find multiple uses, such as for helping to erect stages and production sets, or for rigging, controlling lighting, or perhaps even lifting and lowering the actors.

Many types of hoists are used within this industry, such as Stagemaker lifting hoists, and their primary lifting medium is often wire rope. Given the delicate nature of some of these operations, only the very best equipment can be used by those working within this industry. That’s where our theatre cables come in.

Galvanized black steel cable is particularly popular for theatre cable use, as the black helps to diffuse the light that is emitted onto the stage set, providing excellent camouflage. However, we can supply a range of colours in various widths and lengths to meet your exact requirements.

Our theatre cable is typically used with a range of end fittings, such as shackles, that allow it to be utilised with entertainment setups in various ways. You can find out more about our wire rope fittings here. Some cables also come supplied with a strong PVC coating.

Using our own state of the art facilities, we are able to manufacture, test and supply bespoke theatre cables suitable for your exact specifications.

The needs of the entertainment industry change rapidly, and its never a ‘one-size-fits-all approach.

Keeping your product in good working condition

All of our wire rope products are manufactured and tested in accordance with all of the relevant standards and guidelines. We always aim to produce high quality, strong and long lasting equipment, which is particularly important given the nature of the entertainment industry.

However, all equipment suffers natural wear and tear during its service life, and its important that you are mindful of this when you are working with it. Please ensure that you regularly inspect all of your theatre cables, checking for any internal or external damage.theatre cable

Things to look out for include:

  • Wear – this is a normal characteristic for any rope product, but is still something to look out for
  • Broken wires – this is also a normal characteristic for a rope product, but will more likely show towards the end of the operational life of a wire rope item
  • Distortions – may include visible signs such as rusting on the wire rope, and can indicate mechanical damage

Should you notice anything unusual such as the above, or would like to discuss replacement equipment, then get in contact with us as soon as possible.
