Fall Protection

We at In-House Production, riggers that we are, know that when you work high in the air as we do, safety is the Number One priority. Having the right safety equipment is a must. Proper safety equipment can save a life -- perhaps your life. We depend upon fall protection every day, which is why we work with HY-SAFE TECHNOLOGY, a TURNKEY FALL PROTECTION SOLUTION COMPANY.

Working with HY-SAFE, we can offer Engineered Systems -Horizontal and Vertical Lifelines, Temporary Systems, Specialty and Custom Solutions, Fall Protection Softgoods, Training and Assessment and much much more.

In-House Production, on December 16th will start the change over from Celine Dion's five year run to the Bette Midler's show at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace Hotel. After working with CDA (Las Vegas), when installing the Celine Dion show (5) five years ago, and taking care of their labor needs for the past (5) five years, CDA (Las Vegas), AEG, and Harris Entertainment has hired I-HP for this very large change over of staging, rigging, lighting, video, audio, plus installing a Gala Lift in the center of the new stage. All lighting in the showroom will be removed, clean and rehang for the new Bette Midler show, the slope stage will be removed and replacd with a flat platform stage built by Tait Towers, In-House Production's Pro Stage will be used in the basement to bring the floor to the Gala Lift hight when the lift is down in the basement. Rigging will be removing curved batten pipes and replaced with straight batten pipes. This will involve recabling winchs motors, moving sheaves in the grid. The line sets ar 15 lines. Just a small theater.

I will add more to this as the work progresses. Stay tuned.

Material Handling

In-House Production has taken a new twist in the Las Vegas market. With our Contractors License, we now install racking, lockers, shelves, moving pallet racks and pulling permits in and for new warehouses -- working with anything that has to do with material handling around Las Vegas and Clark County. Some of the companies we are working with are Las Vegas Water District, Home Depot Warehouse, and a few companies we can't name.

There will be more to come on material handling. Mike Smith is leading up the Material Handling as well as dealing with customers, and is doing a great job at that. If you have any questions give Mike a call.


In-House Production will be working with Carrie Viaming, the theatre instructor at Palo Verde High School, helping her with the workings of the fly system, what all the parts are that make up a theater fly system are, and how to stay safe as it is being used. She asked if we would and we said YES. Training the new stagehands in Las Vegas.

My first fly system was at the old Las Vegas High School. At that time some of the union stagehands would come by and help with our training. It is now my turn and a good turn it is. Back to high school I go.

In-House Production working with the South Point Hotel

In-House Production supplied all rigging chain motors and stage trusses, and installed rigging hardware at the new Nightclub/Showroom "Fever" at the South Point Hotel. In-House Production also made all hardware to hang 8 - 60" flat screens mounted to the back wall around 1 - 8'x12' LCD wall. We hung all flat screens around the bars, all curtain tracks, 1 motorized main and 1 tiller line up stage track. Side legs with tracks were installed to the underceiling of the ballroom.

We installed six 1-ton Chain Master chain motors over the dance floor. With one button on the controller, all six motors move; this is used primarily to repair lighting fixtures. There are three 35' long trusses with two Chain Master motors for each 35' of truss.

We started with this project when the room was a dirt floor. If you are at the South Point, stop by and take a look.
