Grid Well's mission is to re-define safety and ergonomics in counterweight rigging systems. Our revolutionary Front-Loading Arbor, Arbor Trap and integrated SuperArbor systems have reinvented theatre rigging for the 21st century, offering unprecedented leaps in safety and ease of access. Grid Well products are licensed by and available through select manufacturers and dealers across North America.
Our Front-Loading Arbor has changed the counterweight rigging ball game through design. By replacing the rods and spreader plates of conventional rod arbors with shelves, we have eliminated the dangerous need for stagehands to bend or climb into the arbor well to load bricks. And since gallery safety rails do not interfere with the use of this arbor, keeping your loading gallery to-code has never been easier.
Our innovative Arbor Trap has solved the potential hazard of runaway arbors. Runaway arbors can have disastrous consequences, and are a danger in any theatre with a counterweight system – and the risk is only magnified with the size of your operation. While strict procedure guidelines help, human error is inevitable – so Grid Well Inc. has developed the first and only technological solution currently on the market.
The Arbor Trap is the first in a new category of counterweight safety devices. Available as a stand-alone device which can be retrofit into existing installations, it also comes integrated with our SuperArbor for complete retrofit and new projects.
