NEW Exciting Item from PETZL

in Partners, Sponsors, Rigging on .

One of these exciting items is the PETZL Open Gate Swivel

This is a swivel that can be open on both sides, which will help you minimize the height lost by your rigging, and reduce the need for other rigging connectors like Quicklinks and Shackles. 

One of the most interesting use for The Swivel OPEN by PETZL is in the setup of a Strap Kit. Normally you would have a Spreader Plate, a Quicklink, then a Swivel, followed by another Quicklink and finally your Straps. Even if you were using a Rock Exotica Shackle Swivels you would still need to use at least one Quicklink. With The Swivel OPEN by PETZL you would be saving between 3" to 6" in your final assembly.

The same set-up can be used with Dance Trapeze or Double Rope Hoop.

This it's a really great piece of equipment, well designed and ideal for use on circus props.  We will be offering different options for a spreader plate with Swivel OPEN by Petzl as a ‘ Spread Plate KIT / PETZL '

Hugo Noel

Name: Hugo Noël President of CircusConcepts and internationally recognised Artist Grew up in: St-Antoine-de-Tilly, Québec, Canada Raised part-time on a sailboat sailing around the Atlantic Ocean, Hugo is a very friendly person who likes to spend quality time with friends. Since he discovered circus in 2003, he has been consumed by his passion for creation and physical accomplishments. He first started by learning the basics at the Québec Circus School, and at the same time started competing in trampoline. Just in time for him to finish his studies in mechanical engineering, he was hired by Cirque Starlight, in Switzerland, where he made his debut as a professional circus performer. He since then worked for various companies in touring or fixed show in Europe and America. After leaving the “LOVE” show in Las Vegas, he went back to Canada to perform his many skills in corporate events. His acts have had since a great success, having been presented in over 25 countries around the world, more than 15 festivals and numerous awards, including 4 at the most recognised circus festival of Monte-Carlo, and his act was again presented in 2016 for the "Best of last 40 years" in Monte-Carlo. There are now an average of 15 artists working for Circus Concepts for galas and shows, and also have 3 persons working with us in the office engineering side of the company, 4 in the manufacture, creating the dream apparatus of the artists. Using the skills he has been taught by his father since very young, and other knowledge he acquired in a work and study education in Mechanical Engineering and while he “ran away with the circus”, Hugo also draws and shapes metal to help circus artist achieve success – making people believe in dreams.
