Aerial Safety

Aerial equipment should never be used unsupervised, please consult a professional.

Everything below assumes you have a suitable and safe rigging point, like a professionally installed rigging point or a reputable and rated freestanding rig. Not every home/studio will be the same, so we cannot advise on this part. If you haven’t established a safe rigging point, please do this first with the help of a structural engineer/experienced rigger/professional familiar with what you're hanging and where you're hanging it.

Check out our aerial blogs for more information.

Extra Height, Same Stability

The Firetoys Big Rig XL is suitable for a wide range of aerial apparatus and is ideal for festivals, outdoor events, or even putting in the garden if you have one big enough!

The crane bar has five rigging points: three central and two for safety lines and pulley setups. The crane features a central solid plug for load distribution. The legs all feature chest-height connection points for tying off or connecting carabiners.

Designed for Portability

The portable construction of this rig means you can take it out and about, whether you're performing at an event or just practicing in or outside!

It can also be easily transported into and out of venues for performances or workshops. The grip on the base of the feet will provide traction without damaging floors, allowing it to be set up without issue. The feet can also be bolted to the floor if you intend a semi-permanent indoor installation.

Designed for Durability

This rig's aluminium is corrosion resistant, making this trapeze rig suitable for permanent outdoor use.

In the unlikey event that you find yourself needing parts or repairs, we offer support and replacements for our rigs.

Firetoys Freestanding Outdoor Aerial Rig



Our aerial rig has been fully CAD-designed and engineered to give it the optimal strength-to-weight ratio. We have fully developed and manufactured these rigs in the UK. All spigots are machined in-house to reduce tolerances, and all joins are engineered to ensure exact fits before welding to maximise bonded areas. These include high-precision twinned bird's mouth cuts and bespoke gusseting.

We've used high-penetration industrial TIG welding to ensure the strongest bonds. This type of welding is more robust and predictable than MIG and other welding techniques. All seams are triple welded for ultimate strength: a root pass, a second pass, and a weaved capping pass. This means the welds penetrate 70% of the aluminium wall (resulting in up to 10mm of precision welded material).

Tech Specs

Our latest generation of BigRigs all come with custom-made floor straps. The BigRig XL comes in 3 sizes, one for each of its main heights.

These are specially designed and stitched on our industrial surger out of high-tensile webbing to sit perfectly flat on the ground while keeping the rig's feet in tension using high-strength steel hooks. This allows for a consistent footprint and height while reinforcing the rig for any dynamic movements.

They can also be used to lay out the footprint of your rig before construction to check where it best fits in the space, saving you time and hassle.
The footprints are as follows:

  • Full height: 6.5m - 8.5m x 8.2m
  • Medium height: 5.5m - 6.8m x 6.4m
  • Low height: 4.5m - 5.4m x 4.8m


All the components of the Firetoys BigRig are as follows, and everything listed here is included as standard

  • 1x top crane
  • 4x set of 5 legs
  • 4 x heavy duty foot with grippy pad
  • 3x sets of floor straps (1 for each height of rig)
  • 20x leg pins
