Fiend Productions Enters the Ring with SIXTY82

UK – Dry hire and production company, Fiend Productions has provided a SIXTY82 trussing system for the Progress Wrestling 2018 shows at London’s historic Alexandra Palace and SSE Arena Wembley venues.

Progress Wrestling, a British professional wrestling promotion, ran its first show in 2012 at The Garage in Islington. Since then it has grown tremendously into major venues in the UK, including Ally Pally and the Wembley Arena.

Jess Matthews, Managing Director of Fiend Productions, approached A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd. (AC-ET) to invest in high load trussing for the shows at Ally Pally. After being provided with a range of options by Steven Farnsworth in UK Sales at AC-ET, Jess decided on SIXTY82.

He commented: “The quality of the welds and construction of the SIXTY82 truss is very noticeable, and the high load capacity allows us to be a lot more creative.”

Each section of SIXTY82 truss has a built-in RFID tag equipped as standard and allows individual pieces of truss to be tracked and identified. The SixtyTag is compatible with a wide range of scanners and 3rd party software. Jess continued: “It is very useful for our rigging inspection records. We are moving towards using RFID for full asset tracking and the fact it is integrated here is a definite benefit.”

After the shows at Ally Pally, the truss was used in the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester and the SSE Arena in Wembley as part of the Progress Wrestling tour, before being added to Fiend Productions’ hire stock.

Jess concluded: “SIXTY82 truss has provided a significant upgrade to the expansion of our rigging department. We are very pleased to have SIXTY82 truss in our hire stock, and will continue to increase our stock as our business grows.”

Unveiled to the UK market earlier this year at PLASA Focus, new brand SIXTY82 is an alliance featuring innovators from three countries with over 100 years of entertainment industry leadership between them. They came together to bring a fresh view into the market, providing innovative, next generation trussing and staging systems.
