Choosing Portable Staging

Portable Staging is a type of stage that is able to be used at different locations in order to perform. These stages are often made of aluminum trusses which makes them very light and sturdy at the same time. They are usually able to carry the weight of performers and the speakers that will be on them. They also come in a variety of sizes so that there is one to suit every venue.

When choosing a portable stage it is important to look at its dynamic live load rating as this will indicate the amount of lateral force that the stage has been tested for and can safely support. This is calculated by multiplying the standard uniform live load by 15% which will give you the amount of lateral force that the stage can handle. The higher the dynamic live load rating the more lateral force that the stage can take before it begins to bend or collapse.

Another factor to consider is the size of the stage and the price. Generally speaking the larger the stage the more it will cost. It is also important to check the shipping costs as they can add a lot of extra expense to the overall bill.

Finally, if possible try to find a staging company that is close to your venue as this will help to keep the shipping costs down. Also, some stages have the option to be covered in carpet which can help to create a cohesive look for your venue.
