Whether you’re a rigger, grip, gaffer, or someone else working in the entertainment industry, stages, and set design are vital to overall production value. Apart from the physical stages and sets themselves, rigging hardware is also necessary for design and performance. Doughty Engineering’s full line of couplers, clamps, and brackets make building functional sets safe and efficient.
Scaffolding and truss can be utilized throughout the production process, from building sets to using towers for camera crews. Couplers, clamps, and brackets all aid in building production and design and can upgrade or alter existing structures.
Pipes are easy to combine with Doughty’s couplers. With a wide variety of clamps to choose from, clamps can construct various scaffolding configurations and hold frames, lighting instruments, and fixtures. Brackets also serve different on-site functions, including hanging overlap track and handrails.
