The EKX loudspeaker systems and rigging accessories have a minimum structural safety factor of 8:1 when used as intended. The safety factor is defined as the ratio of the ultimate-break strength divided by the working-load limit. The ultimate-break strength represents the force at which a part will structurally fail. The working-load limit is the maximum load that the user shall apply. The safety factor provides a margin of safety above the working-load limit to accommodate normal dynamic loading and normal wear.
When EKX loudspeaker systems are suspended using the EKX rigging accessories, the resulting loads will be within the working-load limits of both the loudspeaker systems and the rigging accessories, and a safety factor of at least 8:1 will be maintained.
