Heighten the atmosphere of your event to a whole new level! Helsinki Rigging Company can rig lights, sound equipment, set pieces, or even a car to a venue’s ceiling. Or wherever you would like. At the same time, we’ll lift the mood to the best it can be.
No project is too difficult or obscure for us. We rigged a 10-meter gorilla onto the side of Hotel Torni, did a controlled 20 meter drop of a grand piano, rigged a car into the air in Kaivopuisto Park, rigged the ceiling lights in the Nelonen news studio, and set up the PA system at the Finnish National Opera.
Just tell us what you want rigged and where. We will carefully plan the rigging, take care of the necessary permits and finish the project using only the best possible equipment. Everything is guaranteed, and handled safely with the utmost expertise.
Yes, you need the help of a professional rigger if you want to safely fasten props at a certain height. Riggers are at the service of corporate event organizers, for example, as well as lighting and sound equipment companies, trade show contractors, film producers, ad agencies, promoters and persons in charge of real estate.
By employing the services of certified professionals, you can ease your worries and minimize the risk of accidents. Helsinki Rigging Company is the only registered company in Finland that employs head riggers who have completed international qualifications in rigging, and have full knowledge of all required safety procedures. In Finland, nearly all organizers of large-scale rock concert tours retain the services of Helsinki Rigging Company.
Rigging planning and implementation is demanding, liable work, which is best left to professionals. Planning and design calls for expertise in construction, calculating Force, and risk management. Knowledge of the required tools and making sure they are used correctly is a top priority. Implementation requires qualified professionals, project managers with accountability, and strong knowledge of regulations.

Our services have been entrusted by U2, The Rolling Stones, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and so on.
