Overhead rigging
DANGER TO LIFE!
Please consider the EN 60598-2-17and the respective national standards during the installation!
The installation must only be carried out by an authorized dealer!
The installation of the device has to be built and constructed in a way that it can hold 10 times the weight for
1 hour without any harming deformation.
The installation must always be secured with a secondary safety attachment, e.g. an appropriate catch net.
This secondary safety attachment must be constructed in a way that no part of the installation can fall down
if the main attachment fails.
When rigging, derigging or servicing the fixture staying in the area below the installation place, on bridges,
under high working places and other endangered areas is forbidden.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by an
expert before taking into operation for the first time and after changes before taking into operation another
time.
18/26
00058952.DOC, Version 1.2
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by an
expert after every four year in the course of an acceptance test.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are approved by a
skilled person once a year.
Procedure:
The device should be installed outside areas where persons may walk by or be seated.
IMPORTANT! OVERHEAD RIGGING REQUIRES EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE, including (but not limited to)
calculating working load limits, installation material being used, and periodic safety inspection of all
installation material and the device. If you lack these qualifications, do not attempt the installation yourself,
but instead use a professional structural rigger. Improper installation can result in bodily injury and.or
damage to property.
The device has to be installed out of the reach of people.
If the device shall be lowered from the ceiling or high joists, professional trussing systems have to be used.
The device must never be fixed swinging freely in the room.
Caution: Devices may cause severe injuries when crashing down! If you have doubts concerning the safety
of a possible installation, do NOT install the device!
Before rigging make sure that the installation area can hold a minimum point load of 10 times the device's
weight.
DANGER OF FIRE!
When installing the device, make sure there is no highly-inflammable
material (decoration articles, etc.) within a distance of min. 0.5 m.
Mount the device to your trussing system using appropriate clamps.
For overhead use, always install an appropriate safety bond.
You must only use safety bonds complying with DIN 56927, quick links complying with DIN 56927, shackles
complying with DIN EN 1677-1 and BGV C1 carbines. The safety bonds, quick links, shackles and the
carbines must be sufficiently dimensioned and used correctly in accordance with the latest industrial safety
regulations (e. g. BGV C1, BGI 810-3).
Please note: for overhead rigging in public or industrial areas, a series of safety instructions have to be
followed that this manual can only give in part. The operator must therefore inform himself on the current
safety instructions and consider them.
The manufacturer cannot be made liable for damages caused by incorrect installations or insufficient safety
precautions!
Pull the safety bond through the hole in the mounting-bracket and over the trussing system or a safe fixation
spot. Insert the end in the quick link and tighten the safety screw.
The maximum drop distance must never exceed 20 cm.
A safety bond which already held the strain of a crash or which is defective must not be used again.
Adjust the desired inclination-angle via the mounting-bracket and tighten the fixation screws.
DANGER TO LIFE!
Before taking into operation for the first time, the installation has to be approved by an expert!
