Equipment Testing and Inspection

Regulations stipulate that any equipment used for lifting or
suspending people off the ground is required to have a report of a
thorough examination every 6 months. This is a legal requirement
and could invalidate your insurances if not kept up to date.
High Performance can arrange a visit or quotation to discuss your
needs and fulfil this requirement resulting in a regular certificated
examination scheme.
Newly built or installed systems and equipment can also be tested
and inspected by us and designated work load limits with certification.


High Performance offers a consultancy service for those wishing to
have technical, artistic or safety advice and solutions. Whether it’s for
a new creation or an overhaul of an existing piece we’d be happy to
meet and discuss your budget & needs. Our consultancy services
range from small to large scale events, theatrical productions &
promotional stunts.


Since 2003 High Performance has been involved with rigging tuition
as part of the university degree course at the National Centre for
Circus Arts (formerly The Circus Space) in London.

High Performance runs a two day training course in ‘
Fundamentals for Aerial Performance’. This course was
successfully trialled for the first time as part of the Irish Aerial Dance
festival 2012 and came about as result of an overwhelming demand
in the aerial performance and circus industry for fundamental
knowledge in rigging and safety.

Since its introduction in 2012 High Performance's "Rigging
Fundamentals for Aerial Performance" course has been successfully
run at various  locations in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland and
is rapidly continuing to grow in popularity within the theatre, climbing,
rigging and circus sectors.
