The Rollaway stage is ideally suited for environments with limited space and minimal set up crew. For example; a hotel with a small goods lift where a stage needs to be set up on level 10 and then moved to level 20 by just one person.

Stages at 1000mm and above require handrails.

 

How tall are your steps?

Is it cheaper to hire a stage just for one day?

Our hire period is based on 7 day use so it is the same price if you hire a stage for 1 day or 7. This provides greater flexibility for events over the weekend and dry hires.

 

I require a special build, do you provide such services?

Yes, our design team works with your conceptual plan and can provide renders and CAD drawings for a practical build. A highly experienced manufacturing department takes those plans and fabricate the custom design. Finally, our logistics division will ship it to your desired location.
