Straightpoint supplies load cell equipment

2 October 2008

Straightpoint has provided safety testing equipment to Extreme Location Rigging for several years, including for stunt rigging on film sets.

Its equipment has been used in the recent James Bond film Quantum of Solace for the aerial shots within the aeroplane fight sequence, as well as on movies Prince of Persia and Wolfman.

The load cell systems were used to ensure that equipment was safe, whether it was for on-set stunts or testing safety equipment.

Straightpoint manufactures force measurement, load monitoring and suspended weighing load cells up to 1,000t capacity.
