Star Events are known for providing the nations’ largest music festivals with stages. These include Download, British Summer Time, Wildlife and various others. Tech Ent Services were asked to assist them with phase one of converting their load guard hoists connectors so that standard industry cabling could be used with this system.
The load guard hoists were fitted with a propriety style socapex that could only use this type of cabling, therefore limiting its usability with other types of systems.
The load guards are regular workhorses for Star Events used to lift their massive VerTech roof system into position.
Tech Ent Services provided the resources to re-work Star Events inventory of hoists, so that the typical Red and Yellow connectors, as found standard throughout the industry, could be used.
This work included the fabrication of standard pinout socapex patch panels and heat shrinking cables for standard cee form connectors to be used.
Additionally, most of the work was carried out at Tech Ent Services workshop off site, therefore requiring minimal time away from the office.
