St Paul's Church - 5 Aug 2011
The versatility and lightweight nature of the Ultralight™ Staging system was a deciding factor in choosing the product for our church. Being able to configure the system around the numerous awkward shapes found within the church was also a major plus point - and, with a little extra help from Gopak, we have managed to create some fillers covered in the same material as the main decks. The sales team were fantastic and pulled out all the stops to achieve a very tight delivery deadline.
Peter Tavy Village Hall - 3 Nov 2009
We have been delighted at the quality of service and products from Gopak. We have been using Gopak folding tables in our Village Hall - sharing several of these with the neighbouring Chapel - for many years, and had always found them reliable and dependable. For some time, we had been considering replacing the ageing wooden block staging and some old stacking tables in our Hall. Once we had raised sufficient funds, we looked around at the products available and decided that the Gopak "Ultralight" staging seemed to offer the best solution for our needs. But we didn't want to commit ourselves to purchasing without first seeing the product, so a helpful representative from Gopak, Tony Ash, visited our Hall to demonstrate the "Ultralight" staging system to members of our Committee - several of whom enjoyed jumping up and down on the sample unit to demonstrate its load-bearing ability!
With the useful "Stage Planner" facility on the Gopak website, we could determine which units of "Ultralight" we required to create a versatile and practical portable stage for the space available, and submitted our order for the parts required, alongside an order for additional small folding tables to complement our existing stock of larger Gopak tables. We were impressed by the prompt turn-around and delivery of our order, which all arrived safely. Having unpacked the Ultralight staging we were delighted to discover that the entire system we had ordered could be stored in an area smaller than just one of the old wooden staging blocks we had been using up to that time. Furthermore, our stage could be erected quite quickly by just two people working together, (for the larger units - a stage composed of smaller units, up to 1m square, could easily be put together by one person working alone). We were very relieved that there was no longer any need for a sack trolley to transport the old wooden staging blocks from our storage shed in all kinds of weathers! It is also reassuring to know that - should a need arise in the future - we would be able to purchase further "Ultralight" units to increase the permutations in stage area and design available to us.
We have been very happy with the functionality, strength and appearance,of the "Ultralight" staging system, and by its versatility and portability. It has proved a successful purchase for the Hall and we would recommend it to others facing a similar need for a temporary stage from time to time. We are also very happy with our additional new Gopak folding tables, which have proved very popular with users of the Village Hall. Thank you to the team at Gopak, for providing a stage to be proud of at Peter Tavy Village Hall. - See more at: http://www.gopak.co.uk/testimonials/?Page=4#sthash.rF02w1e5.dpuf
