In addition to our firetoys BigRig we are delighted to offer the BigRig XL, an even larger version of our high-quality precision engineered freestanding aerial rig.


Our new and improved BigRig XL is incredibly stable and won't budge even under high winds. It will stand up to high-intensity use even at its full height of 6.5m!

As this is an extended version of our bigrig, it can also be built up to the existing 4.5m and 5.5m heights if you don't need all of it at once.


The full-height version is a straightforward build and is quickly assembled by 3-4 people in just 10 minutes without any tools whatsoever.



Portable enough to take out into the world, for all your breathtaking performance opportunities.

Easily Transported into and out of venues for performances or workshops.

You can even set up multiple pieces of kit easily with our pulley rigging set

Fits in perfectly anywhere


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).


The Firetoys BigRig XL has been fully strength tested and comes with certified working load limits (WLL). Destructive tests at an external professional load testing house were carried out to certify this rig. This gave us a WLL of 157kg at a safety ratio of 10:1.




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.


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
