Props their durability and use.

Updated: Sep 26, 2023

Props are essential elements of any film, theatre or event production. They help create a believable world and bring the story to life. However, props are still fragile and need to be handled with care, even when out on hire. This is because most props are made from materials that can easily break or get damaged if not handled correctly. As a result, it is crucial to ensure that props are always handled with care to prevent damage or loss.

One reason why props are still fragile is that they are often made from materials that are not the same as the originals. For instance, many props are made from foam, plastic or papier-mâché, which can easily break or dent if not handled correctly. Similarly, props made from glass, porcelain or other brittle materials can easily shatter if not handled with care.

Moreover, props are often custom-made to fit specific requirements of a production, making them unique and irreplaceable. This means that even minor damages can render a prop unusable and result in significant financial losses for production companies.

It is for these reasons that it is essential to handle props with care, especially when out on hire. It is vital to remember that the hirer is responsible for the piece from the moment of delivery up until it is received back by the rental company. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the props are not damaged or lost during transportation, storage or use.
