CABLE GUARDS FOR GENIE MATERIAL LIFTS AT IHP

How many times have you stood behind a material lift, cranked the handles so you could lift truss, motors, air ducks, or anything and as you cranked the handles, you stood there looking at the aircraft cable and thought to yourself "Is That Cable In My Face Going To BREAK? Is It".


This is something I thought of every time I used the material lift. Then several good friends talking about this cable, so we decided to do something about it. 


We build our first CABLE GUARD for our Genie 24ft Superlift. The first guard we built looked very nice and worked great. It worked so well, we build 4 more and installed the guards on all of our rental Genie Material Lifts.  


SAFETY BECAME JOB ONE.
Do you have a Genie Material Lift? Do you need a guard for you Genie Material Lift? Give IHP a call for your CABLE GUARD. (MLCG-07). Your workers with Thank You.....


Give us a call and bring SAFETY to your workplace.

COVID-19 "WOW'

I have lived in Las Vegas for a long time. In all that time, I have not ever seen or do I remember of a Casino, Gambling Hall, Production Show ever CLOSING in LAS VEGAS, NV. This is my first. If this is going on in Las Vegas, I can't even imagine what the country or the world is going through. 


I have added this to In-House Production's Blog as a reminder and date as to when this took place. 



Casino's close, the food is off the shelves, stores are cutting hours, and when or where will this end. 


As the Coronavirus is bad, I believe the plan to keep it from spreading maybe even worse. 


May we stay safe and hope this virus ends soon so everyone can get back to some kind of life. Casino's open, Shows and events come back, and stores stock back up with food. 
In-House Production wishes everyone the best of an unpleasant chain of events. 

NEW CASTER DOLLIES FOR STAGE PLATFORMS.

 When was the last time you tried to load platforms into a truck and the casters got in the way? How many times have you stacked platforms on platforms and have the caster frame bend? How many times have you needed a simple way to add casters to a platform without some monster task.



We at In-House Production had all those same problems. As the idea is old, we believe the design is new and strong. Adds a lot of support from and to the platform. 


We painted it Yellow as this is our color. What color would you like? We added IHP into the steel so we don't have to worry about losing stickers. We added our barcode number into the steel so we can track each TTC Dollie Caster Plate. No more stickers to lose.  


Made at our shop for our platforms. They could fit Steel-Deck carts if we had Steel-Deck carts. They can fit any 2" by 2" square tubing receiver. 






Look for them at your next show.

Labor Management Software for the Event and Entertainment Industry.


What is this, a new Video of WHAT? Why would someone look at a video of a guy sitting behind a desk, looking at computer monitors and a name tag that says, LABOR MANAGER?  "WHY".

You may know In-House Production is a Stagehand Labor Provider for Shows and Events. We needed a software program that lets us track Labor. Stagehand Labor. So we made it for what we do.

The Program does (1) Labor Planning, (2) Time Tracking, (3) Reporting, (4) Labor Scanning in-out, (5) Dispatching, (6) Single Sign-in and much more. Track 10 workers to 1000's with this web-based system.

We call it "STARS" Stagehand Time Attendance Reporting System. Take a look at the video we had made. If you would like more information as to what "STARS" can do, give us a call.

When building one of the main concerns was the KISS system.

AUSTRIAN CURTAIN RIGGED IN THE ROUND.

How do you make a push/pull system using a chain hoist? Use a turn around the block. Does the chain care that it is pulling up or down? That is the question. 


Just add a 1-ton chain hoist and install it on its side. Does the center hang hook care if it is pulling on its side if it, pulling straight in line as the hook? That is the question.


Nothing like hanging a chain hoist off the end of an aluminum I-Beam. Just build a custom chain hoist hanging bracket.


Add a turnaround chain sheave and a bunch of 6in cable sheaves, then bolt it to the other end of the I-Beam and you are ready to go.


As the trolley travels across the I-Beam is pulling the pick-up lines, using a 1-ton 32fpm chain hoist, then doubling the pick-up lines I have a 64fpm curtain lifting just a little work.
One day setup and working.

CIRCLE STAGE TRUSS

Ever had to design a circular truss that will do just about everything needed. Ever had to change your plans several times as the structure during construction changed. IHP made it happen and on time with the budget in mind.  


Ever had to hang and rehang the audio and video gear as it was not right. Then come up with the plan to make it all work and have it done today. IHP did.


With all the last minute design changes, IHP went to Miguel @ Total Structure's to have the truss fabricated. Miguel and his team of many did a great job with very little time. Thank You, Miguel and your team for all the last minute work. 


The circle truss was one part of a much larger job. IHP worked with Audio, Lighting, Video, as well as adding DJ Tables, Rolling Video Wall and adding Staging to make the one large set-up.
