How to choose the right portable staging setup

The solution for organisations without a built-in stage

Many organisations including schools, village halls and community centres do not have the luxury of a permanent stage nor the space or funding to build one.  These types of premises need to be multi-functional and adaptable for many different purposes.  When choosing a stage you need to consider who will use the stage, available space for use and storage and will the staging system be strong and durable enough to withstand regular use.  If you intend to clear the stage away to make your space available for other activities, it should be light, portable and easy to assemble and disassemble, without the need for a troop of volunteers. 

Choose a staging system that doesn't need a troop of volunteers to put up and down

The Ultralight Staging System crafted by Gopak in our Kent factory is the ideal solution to deliver the performance that you have always wanted.

This innovative folding modular staging system provides an extremely safe, lightweight, easy to assemble, quick to dismantle solution for performances. Each of the components are lightweight and can easily be transported yet are incredibly robust and durable.  It is this innovative combination that makes Ultralight Staging ideal for a variety of purposes, including school productions, events, conferences, choirs and even gigs and concerts.

What parts do you have?

The Ultralight Staging system combines aluminium risers that concertina out in a similar manner to a pop up tent, with stage decks that are attached to create your performance surface.  The stage decks and risers are supplied in a choice of sizes and are designed to fit together to create platforms, tiers and steps with a great choice of options and safety features. It is a really simple product to assemble and a whole stage can be easily set up by one person although we do recommend a two person operation when assembling our 2m x 1m decks and risers. The deck is securely attached to the riser by Allen Key fixings at each corner and multiple decks and risers can then be linked to create the desired surface area through our cleverly designed cleat system.     

What can I use it for?

Ultralight is the only lightweight staging system in the UK to have achieved GS TUV accreditation DIN 15921:2015-09 for load bearing, stability, design and structure.  As an assembled staging platform Ultralight has been tested to and achieved a uniform distribution load of 1000kg per m² and a point load test of 180kg.  When you buy Ultralight Staging, you can be assured that you are buying a quality product that will prove to be a valuable investment and asset to your organisation.  It is this reliability combined with innovation that makes Ultralight ideal for a range of purposes across an array of sectors.

How do you put it together?

People Required: 1 Person; although we do recommend a two person operation when putting together our 2m x 1m decks and risers.

Time Needed: 5 minutes

  • The risers are folded for storage; to open for use, simply release the riser
  • Place the deck on top of the riser and tighten using the Allen key provided, or by twisting the riser tube on each corner
  • Repeat until you have your desired stage-size and place the decks and risers together
  • Join the stage decks and risers together using the locking cleats located on the side of the stage deck. Ensure that the locking cleats are in the correct position before you start to secure your staging
  • If you are using the Ultralight Valance, simply add them to the edge of the stage
    Anti-slip plugs can be added to each riser bottom block to prevent the stage from slipping on uneven floors
  • If you are using your stage outdoors or on an uneven surface, the Ultralight Riser Levellers ensure that the stage is securely levelled
