stage and set building

Stage & Set Building Hire

Stage and set building is something that we pride ourselves on. Our seamless, professional finish on staging is what separates us from the competition. We use brand new carpet on all staging for every single event it goes out on. Of course, we’re able to send out the staging without carpet on as well.

We use LiteDeck aluminium staging as this is one of the most durable and lightest staging blocks on the market. This keep both transport and hire costs to a minimum.

Set building comes in many different formats but has the possibility so that no two set designs are the same. Whether you’re after a simple rectangular set behind a stage, or a curved 3D glittered archway, we’ve got you covered.

As staging and set building is something quite bespoke, we advise that you speak with us directly to discuss your options. We’ll be able to advise on the best solution, doing our upmost to stay within budget without compromising quality.

For a breakdown of our stage blocks, please see below:

  • 4ft x 2ft
  • 6ft x 2ft
  • 8ft x 2ft
  • 4ft x 4ft
  • 6ft x 4ft
  • 8ft x 4ft
  • Quad & triangle sections
  • Legs for all staging cut to bespoke heights if required
equipment dry hire

Equipment Dry Hire

If you are familiar with our equipment and are comfortable installing and using it without our expert know-how, we offer all of our equipment on a dry hire basis; meaning you will save costs on installation and transportation if you pick up from us directly.

We understand that sometimes, especially during busy periods, your own stock may be running low and you require a little help from someone else; this is where we can help you.

If you feel that you require some additional equipment to supplement your own, please get in contact with us directly and we’d be more than happy to help.
