Set Pieces

Moving Set Pieces

If parts of the set need to be in motion, then UK Rigging has a wide range of Kinesys equipment available for dry hire, or to hire with an operator.

Custom Built Structures

UK Rigging has a wide selection of ground support available to create a bespoke structure to fit your requirements.

Thanks to the availability of different departments such as fabrication, installation, NRC qualified riggers and project managers, UK Rigging can provide a unique solution to a complex problem. Whether it’s indoor or outdoor, whether the structure needs to incorporate blackout drape to create a “night time” atmosphere or a tab track to allow for moving drape, UK Rigging can provide an answer.

Turn Any Space into a Studio

If you need to transform a space into a studio, UK Rigging can provide customised structures and bespoke grids to support lighting and video in any setting.

Previous jobs include turning a concert arena into an assault course, a public mezzanine into a chat show set and creating outdoor structures for filming in a forest.

Case Study

Venue: BBC Broadcasting House
Dates: November / December 2019

With the country focusing on the upcoming general election, UK Rigging were brought on board by a production company to supply a structure for the main broadcasting hub of BBC Broadcasting House.

For this structure UK Rigging supplied a Litec QX30 frame utilising a wide variety of components to achieve the exact dimensions required, to the closest centimetre. With over 60 straight sections supported on a total of 17 legs we were able to create a structure that fit perfectly into the production studio. Thanks to our wide selection of Litec QX30 lengths, we managed to achieve the maximum roof height despite the unusual dimensions required.
