safety


Our shows & safety procedures have been approved by Fire Marshalls & other safety authorities around the world for both indoor and outdoor performances.

With a decade in business, we have a 100% safety record.


AUDIENCE SAFETY

1) Safety Perimeter

Our safety distances are double the maximum possible arc length for a show. This perimeter is marked by crowd barricades that prevent the audience from entering the performance area.

2) Safety Personnel

Trained safety personnel are stationed around the perimeter of the performance area. Their job is to observe the crowd and prevent breech by audience members or foreign objects.

3) Emergency Stop Procedure

Our Tesla Operator’s sole responsibility is to hit the emergency stop button should there be a breech of the perimeter. The Operator is in communication with the entire Safety Crew and is monitoring the perimeter throughout the performance. Emergency shut down take less than a second.

Faraday Suits

Our specially designed Faraday suits prevent electromagnetic fields from reaching the inside. Because of the way we have designed our suits and our performance area, when a performer is hit with an electrical arc, the electricity passes along the surface of the suit to ground.

Our Safety Crew checks each suit inch by inch before every show to ensure suit integrity.

How much space do you need to do a show?

  • Under each package in our EPK you can find the Minimum Safety Area that must be free of all audience members in order to produce an incredible show.

  • If you have more space, we can power up the coil so that it creates even longer arcs. Let us know how much space you have and we can create a safe and spectacular show within those dimensions.

  • If you have something within our safety area, we can often shield it with a faraday cage. Contact us if you are unsure if your space meets our safety requirements.

Lightning Dancing and Lightning Throwing... What’s the difference?

  • In Dancing shows, the performer(s) dance across the stage as they manipulate arcs of lightning that radiate from the Tesla Coil itself.

  • In Throwing shows, the performer stands atop a platform and throws lightning bolts down towards lightning rods or performers on the stage. In these shows the performer on the platform is the source of lightning.

  • Some show packages include both Throwing and Dancing. In these, the finale features the performer standing on the platform throwing arcs of lightning down to the dancers on the stage.
