Suspending your imagination since 1998
Tri-Point Rigging Services was formed in September 1998 when Dave Hird, Warren Jones and Graeme Dew decided to combine their extensive rigging experience and resources to provide a service in the growing area of specialised entertainment rigging.
By engaging Tri-Point, clients receive a wealth of knowledge through the years of combined experience on films sets, international touring stages and construction sites that the three directors possess.
Tri-Point has acquired a considerable stock of rigging, scaffolding and staging equipment which is suitable for the entertainment industry. We continually update, research and design specialised equipment. Our gear is in excellent condition, readily available and priced competitively. With an impeccable safety record, we are committed to ensuring that our clients continue to receive the best possible service.
What We Do
Film, TV & Entertainment
Tri-Point provides professional rigging, staging and scaffolding services to the film, television and entertainment industries. We possess an extensive stock of equipment to suit any project, large or small. From lighting grid truss rigs, blue screens, and production rigging, through to scaffold structures, concert staging, grandstand seating, concert truss and temporary structures for public access, we consider ourselves to be the entertainment staging and rigging specialists in Australia.
We continually update, research and design new specialised equipment. Our gear is in excellent condition, readily available and priced competitively. We offer equipment for hire; installed to suit your event or production, or on a dry-hire basis. We offer in-house drafting capabilities and work with Australia’s best engineers to bring creative projects to life safely and effectively. Our licensed and experienced crew are also available for hire.
Since forming our company over twenty years ago, we have been called upon to undertake all sorts of weird and wonderful projects, for a huge range of clients from creative marketing agencies to council event departments, independent artists, venues, media outlets and major brands.
We have flown tiny paper planes in a rig across Taylor Square in Oxford Street, decorated huge Christmas trees, flown giant inflatable santas, built an access deck under – and maintenance units over – the Sydney Opera House, flown cars from helicopters, flown people from buildings, and blacked out more venues than we’d care to count.
We are honoured to be the exclusive rigging sponsor to the annual Australian Event Awards, as well as proud sponsors of a variety of charity events; which includes providing staging and rigging annually to the Relay for Life fundraiser in Sylvania, in support of the Cancer Council NSW.
After the devastating bushfires that swept through Australia in the summer of 2019-2020, we were proud to be a key production partner for the Fire Fight Australia Concert for National Bushfire Relief, which raised millions of dollars towards the relief effort. Tri-Point were also the co-sponsor for the Cabargo Unites! Benefit Concert, which was due to take place at the Cobargo Showgrounds on May 3rd 2020. Unfortunately, the benefit had to be cancelled due to the Corona Virus lockdown.
