    Looking for a reference for "code" or standards for things like rigging electrical battens, lighting booms, curtain tracks, fly systems, etc.

    Not looking to use it to do rigging, or to sub for a pro rigger, just as a reference for some points and ideas.

    Thanks.

    Two of the "standard references" are Jay Glerum's "Stage Rigging Handbook" and Harry Donovan's "Entertainment Rigging."

    These aren't code references. For that, you might look to ESTA (http://tsp.esta.org/tsp/documents/published_docs.php), as well as manufacturer's own recommendations for installation and usage.

    Just to be clear, the ESTA standards are not referenced by codes or adopted into law.
