22 Dec Choir Risers Guide
When you’re planning an event starring a choir or orchestra, Megadeck can provide you with the right choir riser for your performance and venue needs.
The beauty of Megadeck stages is in their versatility. We can create risers of every size, for every type of venue to accommodate any number of performers. Whether your event is large or small, indoors or outdoors we can provide exactly what you need. Built in obstacles at venues, uneven ground outdoors and size or access limitations can be worked around with our easy to assemble, modular staging pieces.
If you need help deciding what type of choir riser will work best for your unique event, this guide will give you some useful insight into what is available for use in different situations.
Obstacles? No Problem.
You have found the perfect venue for your concert or event but there is a built in object right where you want the tiered staging to go. Obstacles like stairs, fixed benches or columns don’t need to be a deterrent. We can utilise our huge selection of different types and sized stages to configure tiered staging by working around or over obstacles.
Outdoors or Uneven Ground? Easy!
Megadeck staging is cleverly designed to work just as well outdoors on grass, sand or uneven ground as it does indoors. When you’re planning a concert or show where a multi-tiered stage is required to accommodate a choir or orchestra, don’t let an uneven surface deter you. Our highly skilled installation team uses advanced levelling techniques to ensure risers are perfectly level and completely stable. These same techniques can be applied to indoor venues with uneven flooring such as cobblestones or textured tiling.
Large Scale Choral Event? Done!
Planning large scale events can present extra challenges. You may have found a venue that has an existing stage but it’s not big enough to cater for the number of performers in your choir.
It’s easy with Megadeck staging. Our versatile, modular pieces can be configured to the size you need and can be installed on existing stages. Safety is always at the forefront of our stage planning. For larger multi-level stages, we will apply cross-bracing for added stability and support. We also offer a range of safety railing to ensure no matter how high the risers, all performers are kept safe and secure.
Need Temporary Tiers? We deliver!
Because of the modular nature of our staging pieces, Megadeck can easily come to your location and build a temporary tiered riser. Your venue may be a school, workplace, hall or any other type of site. The easily transportable stages required can be delivered and installed on-site for temporary, one off or semi permanent use.
Back to Basics? We’ve got you covered.
When the requirement is for an average sized cast and venue, the most common and popular platform is the 3 tier choir riser. These are built at 300/600/900mm in height and provide great sightlines for all guests to enjoy the performance. The 300mm height increments are ideal for visual effectiveness for audience, photographers and performers alike. A simple calculation based on 4 adults per 2.4m width can determine how many Megadeck stages will be needed for any given performance.
When width or depth is a restrictive factor in a venue, Megadeck can provide staging that utilises available space to great effect by building choir risers that are wider, taller or overlapping so as to allow more people on stage.
Whether performers are adults or children or a mix of both, our choir risers can accommodate any number of performers. For safe and reliable choral and orchestral risers of all sizes for use at all types of venues, talk to the staging specialists at Megadeck in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane.
