J.R. Clancyʼs commitment to you goes well beyond a superior quality equipment and installation. In fact, our proprietary ongoing safety program — TIM— is dedicated to keeping your new or existing facility at the forefront of theatre safety excellence. Here’s how:

Training Operating your theatrical equipment in the right manner promotes both human safety and product longevity. We are committed to helping you and your staff understand your rigging equipment, how your system functions, how to recognized a potential danger and keep your system in a safe, working order.

Inspection Our ETCP-Certified inspectors will identify equipment installations and backstage environments that may be unsafe. By finding potential problems early, they are able to help you minimize repair costs and perhaps avoid expensive damages or injuries. An annual inspection helps ensure safety and helps to reduce liability risks and should be standard procedure in any loss/accident prevention program.

Maintenance As part of our inspection process we generate a detailed report of any items that require ongoing inspection and maintenance. Our team will discuss the report with you and inform you of any equipment that needs to be continually watched or even taken out of service. We will provide an estimate for any possible expenses and our trained technicians can help you with simple repairs, replacement, complex trouble-shooting, renovations and upgrades.
