Use certified safety cables to ensure the safety of your crowd!
When hanging moving heads, speakers, fixtures or other staging equipment above a crowd of people you need to use an independent, secondary safety-device according to BGV-C1 and VGB regulations. Our black safety cable is BGV-C1 certified and can be used single or double stranded as a secondary safety-device.
Safety cables with carabiner-hooks can’t be certified due to the carabiner-hook that has a chance of breaking or opening when equipment falls.
Admiral's safety cables are all wire rope constructions, pressed with standard aluminium ferrules and fitted on both ends with a thimble.
The special safety quicklink to secure the safety cable is certified, which makes these Admiral safety cables a must-have safety-device!
Mount your Admiral safety cables in a loop and as short as possible so that, if equipment falls, the safety cable is in the best position to absorb the weight.
For static equipment the maximum drop height, in case the equipment falls, should never be more than 20 cm. The maximum drop height when using moving equipment is a lot less, only 5 cm.
Always have these safety regulations in mind when mounting your staging equipment.
