Scaffolding that hangs above many studio sets are called Green Beds. These platforms also known as cat walks have been around for many years and got their name because they are green and resemble bed frames. The reason these platforms are painted green is so they can be camouflaged incase they are seen while being stored on the backlots of studios.

Green Beds give crew members more access for lighting and rigging studio sets.
