The following is a selection of companies supplying circus equipment that have been recommended to us.

When you're buying circus equipment (and particularly a complete rig) you'll almost certainly want to take some advice or get a recommendation before choosing a supplier. We suggest you start by contacting your local flying trapeze school for advice. The list below is provided to help narrow your search.

Be aware that the safety standards vary from country to country (in particular the standards in the EU are stricter than in the US). Make sure you seek advice before purchasing something that might not meet the standards in your country.

Feel free to contact us if you'd like some help - particularly about purchasing full sized rigs in Europe, although we can't offer technical advice.
