Stage Manufacture: What You Need to Know.
Stage manufacture is definitely one of those times, I’m sure we can all agree, when a DIY project isn’t a great idea. That’s definitely one of the things best left to the professionals. If your business hosts frequent, large events, it might be time to consider a permanent stage.
Using a professional indoor stage manufacturer ensures that the end result is both perfectly suited to your needs and also safe enough for long-term use during events. There are certain industry regulations concerning safety that concert stages must meet.
In this blog, we’ll discuss the basic elements of every stage manufacture and design:
- Type of materials
- Stages for different purposes
3 Things To Know About Stage Manufacture And Design
Stage Manufacture Materials
The materials for indoor stage platform manufacture depend on what the stage will be used for. For example, schools may want to invest in a multi-purpose stage for different event types, from awards nights to dance recitals, and concert bands to drama productions.
One of the most common materials for stage flooring is painted plywood. Using plywood for stage surfaces can save money on both original construction and ongoing maintenance.
Carpeted flooring is another alternative for auditorium stages. When choosing the right surface, you should also ask the following questions of a professional stage manufacturer:
- How long can it last?
- What is the ideal load capacity?
- How often should it be cleaned and maintained?
- What acoustic requirements exist, and how will the flooring choice affect that?
Types Of Stages
Consider whether your stage will be an indoor or outdoor stage. For outdoor stages, you have the option of adding a trussed canopy roof where stage lights and props can be attached more easily.
A stage manufacturer can ensure that there are no audience blind spots with a custom seating style. This allows the stage to be seen clearly by the audience from all areas.
For a more intimate event, you can adjust the stage height to match the proximity of the crowd so they can interact with the performers.
Portability is an important factor to consider when planning the transportation and storage of your stage.
If you want a reliable, long-term portable stage for your school or club, make sure you have enough space to store it and protect it from the elements. For a fixed-location stage, consider investing in a design that allows for storage space underneath it for extra equipment such as tables, chairs, and steps. This makes the set-up and pack-down process much easier each time you host an event.
Whether you pick a permanent or portable stage, a professional design and manufacture will ensure your finished product is safe and fit for purpose. Consider allowing an experienced stage manufacturer to turn your ideas into reality.
