Navy Pier electricians are responsible for assembly, installation and dismantling of any device that uses electricity as a source of power to the building electrical system. Below are some general guidelines on the electricians and the Chicago Electrical Code.
Exhibitors or their full-time employees may plug 110v/120v equipment into outlets provided by Navy Pier electricians. This includes VCRs, TVs, computers and other appliances. You may also make non-power wiring terminations, such as control and signal wiring to your equipment. However, electricians must perform all power terminations.
Sign Hanging (Rigging)
Any sign or material to be hung must be approved in advance by Complex Management. Any requests to rig or hang must be submitted in writing at least thirty (30) days prior to your event and must be accompanied by a floor plan or diagram, along with weights per point. If the request is unusual or for a significant amount of weight, Complex Management may require that you obtain the approval of a structural engineer at your expense. Complex personnel will not hang any unapproved signs or materials, including trussing and decor.
Any electrical signs must have a permanent nameplate stating the dimensions, weight, and maximum ampere loads and must be approved by Event Services - Navy Pier Exhibitor and Technical Services Department prior to hanging.
