Edge-Safe is a revolutionary theatre stage safety product that improves the safety of working on and off the stage. If you are responsible for the safety of a theatre stage or raised performance platform you will love Edge-Safe and the huge benefits it offers.
Stages can be complex places and bring particular hazards at the front edge, especially during performance and fit up. Since the removal of footlights from most stages over 100 years ago, it’s now best practice to apply a thin white line to the front edge. Although this may seem like a practical stage solution, it brings with it stage safety risks such as:
We are committed to improving theatre stage safety and are proud to have created a product that addresses these risks. Edge-Safe is practical, affordable and greatly reduces the chance of equipment, crew and performers from falling off the edge of the stage. A win-win safety solution for everyone involved. Edge-Safe was launched at the ABTT Theatre Show in June 2011 and won the ABTT’s “Widget Product of the Year” award, for the best new theatre product of 2011. We believe that Edge-Safe is a great step forward in countering the particular theatre hazard of having people working at height on an unprotected platform edge.
Edge-Safe is a ribbed ramp of heavy synthetic rubber that is designed to be mounted along the front edge of a stage. We recommend attaching it to the stage edge, but each unit is heavy enough to offer protection even if not fixed down, whilst being light enough to be repositioned or stored easily. Edge-Safe is so tough it can stop flight cases, Tallescopes or other wheeled equipment rolling over the edge. Not only will it make the stage area safer during fit up, it’ll allow the crew to work more quickly and effectively too.
