Machinery, Lifting & Handling Technology:
TÜV AUSTRIA ensures that technical stage equipment meets the theatre-specific as well as the safety-technical requirements, as every accident means a damage to the image of a theatre or studio. Nowadays most musicals are actually "technicals", as special stage effects play a leading role. TÜV AUSTRIA is not only responsible for smooth musical performances. Experienced theatre managers normally turn to TÜV AUSTRIA's experts as early as during preparation of new stage plays.
This avoids time-intensive and costly changes arising from the results of acceptance tests prior to operation. Manufacturers employ TÜV AUSTRIA in the course of the compulsory acceptance tests as well as for safety-technical concepts of new developments.
