In her latest video detailing rigging terminologies and best practices, Siobhan Colleen takes a close look at Building a Bridle (Wire Rope Drop).
Siobhan explains that when beams are placed in a very high situation wire rope drops are preferred to excessively long bridle legs, emphasising that it is far more pleasant (and safer) to haul an 80 foot (24.4m) chain with a 20 foot (6m) wire drop than a 100 foot (30.5m) motor chain.
Always on point, Siobhan’s collection of videos on A4I.tv are compulsory viewing for both experienced riggers and those new to the industry.
