City Theatrical expands on Safer Sidearms™

PLSN Staff • NewsroomProduct News • September 16, 2020

NYC – Load-rated Safer Sidearms safely support heavier modern lighting fixtures. City Theatrical Safer Sidearms use a diagonal brace to transfer the load off the clamp and onto the vertical pipe, making them stronger and safer to use. Steel Safer Sidearms are bigger and more rugged, designed for speakers and moving lights.
