The GIGS Straight units serve as the sturdy foundation of the GIGS barricade system. You can combine these double-bolted units with GIGS emergency gates and specialized elements to accommodate elaborate stage configurations and cable runs. The GIGS system is designed and built at eps’ Italian manufacturing division and is constructed according to CE Standards. Additionally, every batch of the GIGS system undergoes rigorous testing to ensure its quality and reliability.

Product Description

The GIGS Straight system is made from lightweight aluminum, providing highly static pressure stability. However, we recommend additional lining for optimal performance if the surface is uneven. The fireproof GIGS Straight is available in silver and black and comes in two versions.

Lightweight Version

The standard version of GIGS Straight weighs around 41 kilograms (90.40 pounds) and has a width of 1.09 meters (43 inches) and a depth of 1.25 meters (49 inches). The other version is narrower, measuring only 0.54 meters (21 inches) wide and weighing around 21 kilograms (46.20 pounds). The narrow version only has a stabilizing diagonal on the back, while the wider version has two struts and a practical step.

Combinable With All GIGS Components

Both versions of GIGS Straight are approximately 1.18 meters (46 inches) high and serve as a stable foundation for a modular barricade system. Therefore, you can combine the element with all GIGS components in various ways to create customized configurations. For example, the GIGS Bar Top can be added to transform the GIGS Straight into a stable bar shelf.

Application Details arrow down

The high-quality stage barricades are designed with reinforced diagonally running struts at the rear, ensuring durability and stability. These solid barricade elements are suitable for large events with high crowd pressure and protect spectators, stars, and event staff. They are commonly used for front-of-stage barrier lines at festivals and stadiums and stabilize the GIGS Line-up Gates.

Allows Employees to Intervene Immediately

In addition, the GIGS Back Step on the back of the stage barricades allows employees to maintain visibility of the event guests and intervene immediately if necessary. For further protection, we offer GIGS High Fences made from impact-resistant, transparent polycarbonate, which can be attached to the GIGS Straight barricade system.
