The raised NexGen portable stage is an essential element for a show on stage. The short elevated stages are often used as risers for the chorus at concerts. The highest are used to install lights and create high locations for the appearances of the characters. Both low platforms as high, the most important factor is the safety of the people to stand up and they have to walk, work and play around.

Tips To Build Portable Stage

Wood platforms – Build a rectangular portable stage. Begin to build a platform 48 by 96 inches (1.2 by 2.4 m) with wooden sticks 2 by 4 inches (5.1 10.2 cm) for wooden supports, so that the narrow edge rests on the floor and point upwards. This will create a stronger stage. Cuts the wood, so that the outer platform diameter must have 48 by 96 inches (1.2 by 2.4 m). Set up internal beams that should be at 16 inches (40.6 cm) apart from the vertical center. Make sure that the top edges of all timber are aligned at 2 by 4 inches (5.1 by 10.2 cm).​

Settle the stage A plate nailed to the OSB chipboard platform surface. Do with threaded shank nails ringed flooring 1 3/8 inch (3.5 cm) so that the edges of the table are aligned with the outer edge of the stage.​

Place the legs – Cut wood 4 by 4 inches (10.2 10.2 cm) to the height you need. Place one leg in each corner of the platform. If this will support more than six people, legs also placed in the center side of 96 inches (2.4 m). Legs screwed through the outer perimeter of the cord and the top of the platform. If this is more than 12 inches (30.5 cm) tall, cut timber 2 by 4 inches (5.1 by 10.2 cm) with a 45 degree angle and use them as braces for the legs.

Cover the floor – OSB cluster table is slippery if it is not covered, so you need a cutter to cut a piece of carpet that is 8-12 inches (20.3 by 30.5 cm) longer than the platform. Wrap the area and perimeter of the platform with the carpet and then bent down to cover the sides. Use ring shank nails to hold the carpet in place.​

Paints, if necessary – Most productions on the portable stage require props mixed with the dark backdrop. If the platform is visible, painted wooden legs are exposed clear of black or dark gray.​

Higher platforms – Determine the required height. The scaffolding is constructed with sections of 48 inches (1.2 m). Determine the required height for high or tower platform based on production or lighting specifications. The amount of materials varies with the size of the stage.​
