About the Stage Guard

Most orchestra pit falls happen before or after a performance when crews are going about their work. This is especially true when lighting is low and fastpaced activity is at its peak.

InCord’s Stage Guard net anchors behind the stage walls, spanning the entire width of the stage at the proscenium. The net can be easily deployed or taken down in just a couple of minutes and store compactly off-stage when not in use.

Stage Guard is made from highly visible InCord M1250 High Tenacity Polypropylene yellow netting with a Dyneema® tension rope providing enough strength to stop a runaway equipment cart.

The installed height of Stage Guard is 42 inches and the system can be made to any length.

Because Stage Guard is a suspended system, it does not leave a footprint on the stage floor.

When not in use, the net is retracted and compactly stowed.

The barrier net system including hardware is easily installed using standard hand tools.

Stage Guard attaches to four anchor points on each side of the stage.

Orchestra Pit Safety

InCord StageGuard net systems help prevent injuries from falls
and falling objects, while meeting applicable OSHA regulations. StageGuards can be deployed or removed in minutes, and are built to accommodate your theatre’s unique architecture.

ANSI Fall Prevention Standards

The latest ANSI Standard for the Prevention of Falls from Theatrical Stages and Raised Performance Platforms outlines the need for any theatre to have a comprehensive safety plan. Get in touch with ProAdv for help bringing your theatre into compliance. Read about ANSI E1.46 here.

"We are all very safety conscious here. I will say the Stage Guard safety net across the front's a biggie, which we use daily. We keep it in a barrel offstage and it goes up in about a minute. It's a good expense to make and you keep your people safe."

Michael Metzdorf  - DP, Hobby Center for the Performing Arts

"It was probably one of the easiest purchasing decisions I've ever made, because there was a definite need. "

Adriane Heflin  -  TD, Children's Theatre Company

"Incord has been fantastic and from what I know, they are one of the few companies that do this for our purposes. You should never, ever, ever skimp on safety. It's just not worth it."

Pandemic Availability Notice

Please Note: Due to unprecedented raw material and component shortages for finished goods throughout our industry, lead times for items that aren't currently in stock are longer than normal and cannot be guaranteed at present. Equipment needed by a firm date must be noted at time of order. While VLS cannot guarantee delivery by those dates, we will work with our suppliers to do everything possible to meet deadlines. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

Same Day Shipping Cutoff time
(Due to Pandemic-related availability issues, this policy is currently suspended)

Online orders received by noon Eastern time typically ship the same day. If your delivery due date is critical please note your due date in the order messages at checkout, and then contact us.

Why Noon? Well, while we stock quite a few items in our warehouse, many items we have dropshipped by our vendors. They need time to process the order, so to ensure that we can get the order to the vendor and give them enough time to ship it out the same day, we need to get the order to them as early as possible in the day.

Shipping Rating

Please also note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are weight and dimension based, as this is the method that FedEx and UPS use to rate the package's cost to ship.

Returns Policy

We understand things happen and items occasionally need to be returned. To make things as hassle-free as possible, we have dedicated pages about our Returns Policy (what’s eligible to be returned) and our Return Process (how to go about returning eligible items)
