TV & Film

Figure nine provides production companies with solutions for rigging, positioning, safety at height and near water.

Remote locations provide particularly challenging access and rigging situations. The landscape, climate, flora and fauna all play a part in creating a difficult and potentially dangerous environment to work in. Figure nine has experience working in tropical forests, on desert cliffs, waterfalls and rivers.

We provide
  • Safety supervision of personnel at height and near water
  • Access solutions and safety cover for works on cliffs, trees, structures and rivers
  • Rigging of rope and cable systems for river crossings


Within the Urban environment exist numerous locations on buildings and structures new and old that need to be accessed in order to be maintained or surveyed. Even with mobile elevated platforms, scaffolding and ladders these locations can still remain out of reach. Figure nine can reach these locations without long-term disturbance to the client.

We provide
  • IRATA Level 3 supervision
  • Safety at height supervision
  • Building surveys
  • Photographic surveys
  • Safety cover


Figure nine provides rope access, rigging and safety supervision at height and near water. We have 12 years experience and operate globally. Figure nine installs platforms for camera operators and scientists, keeps film crews safe on location and provides safety cover on wind turbines. We even lift and fit clocks into place on churches. We work in tropical forests, on waterfalls, rivers and cliffs and some of the most iconic buildings and structures in the UK.

We welcome challenging projects.
