On August 14 ANSI’s Board of Standards Review approved ANSI E1.50-1 — 2017, Requirements for the Structural Support of Temporary LED, Video & Display Systems. It was published by ESTA on the same day.
ANSI E1.50-1 covers the support of temporary installations of large format modular display systems, LED, video and other self-illuminating display structures not otherwise addressed by existing standards. The scope of this standard includes planning and site preparedness, assembly and erection, suspension and safety of components, special access requirements, use, and dismantling of these systems.
ANSI E1.50-1 is now available on the ESTA website at http://tsp.esta.org/tsp/documents/published_docs.php for download at no cost, thanks to the sponsorship of Prosight Specialty Insurance. The standard also will be available from ANSI at https://webstore.ansi.org/ and from IHS at https://global.ihs.com/ for the list price of $40.00.
