What Is Outdoor Staging and Why Do I Need It?

A professional outdoor stage can make all difference for your clients and audience.  A professional stage is both imposing and professional alike.  Our outdoor stage comes with rigging points and the correct details required by Health & Safety officers.  All these are major factors to consider when booking a stage for your event.  Consider this before looking at stage trucks, HGV trailers or home made stages.
Outdoor stages have a waterproof cover and wind protector on 3 sides.  This will ensure that your event operates safely and correctly.

What are trailer stages?

Trailer stages are the best option for bespoke events where set up time is a premium.  Our trailer stage can be built in 45 minutes and dismantled in 45 minutes also. This is a fraction of the time which it takes to build a modular stage. With a choice of PA wings and drum risers we offer the complete festival experience with fast set-up.  
Designed and made by StageMobil, this is the latest in trailer stage design.

Stage access with ramps & steps

The best advice we can give is: function over form. If a performer or presenter cannot safely navigate the step unit or ramp then the access if incorrect. Consider if the people who will be taking to the stage are familiar with stage stairs or just those found in homes and buildings. Ramps and steps can do more than simply provide a way onto the stage.
