It rises 10 meters in height, grounded on an area of 12 x 12 meters and is called; thanks to its shape, “GLOBE”. Teatime Concerts from Munich has created a spectacular and unique training area for aerial acrobatics with Prolyte trusses. The end customer is the artistry group Movimento of “TSV Grafing”. They were looking for a way to resume training and show operations while respecting the COVID measures – outdoors.
For project manager Marcus Hüttl from Teatime Concerts, there were a number of requirements to be observed: The construction should get by without lateral steel-ropes as well as looking as light as possible. Nevertheless, a considerable load in the rig was desired so that several artists can train or perform at the same time. In addition to that, there should be enough loading capacity for light- and sound equipments or even a partial canopy.
“The aim was to create a construction in which the towers are at least 3 meters away from the 6×6 meter rig in the top of the dome so that the artists don’t collide with the trusses,” says Hüttl, describing the particular challenge.
And this is how the “GLOBE” came about:
The basic construction is built from H40R circular segments, and underneath a 6x6m rig made of H30V and H30D, which offers enough rigging points for artists and other equipment. In order to ensure maximum safety and stability, truss clamps were not used. All components are form- and forcefit connected to each another.
“The few special parts were developed by Teatime Concerts. Otherwise the construction consists exclusively of Prolyte standard parts, ”says Product Manager Jens Kannacher from Prolyte. “The result is convincing across the board: whether as a DJ tower at a festival or as a 360° open-air stage – the design is unique, timeless and looks so light that the” GLOBE “can be used for almost anything.”
