Portable stage is a must for educational organization that wants to arrange educational festivals in theater. Although there are some sophisticated and expensive portable platforms that you can rent or buy, most organizations cannot afford theaters. Often the platforms on the market do not fulfill their requirements. So they can build their own Portable stage, adapting the techniques of building a traditional platform.
1. Determines the amount of time you have to assemble the stage. Knowing the time allowed for the assembly is important for logistics stage.
2. Build platforms. Plywood used only 3/4 inch (1.90 centimeters) to the upper parts. Only uses 1×6 wood feet (30 x180 cm) instead of 2×4 foot (60 x 120 cm) for the frames. This will reduce the weight.
3. Cut a traditional wooden leg platform using 1×3 foot (30 x 90 cm). Use board with two legs of 1×3 ft (30×90 cm) to form a thicker leg. This pin will be lighter than 2×4 feet (60×120 cm). Wood adhesive will be applied between the layers.
4. Place the legs in the traditional six locations: one in each corner and two in the center. Strengthens the legs temporarily clamped to the frame. Drilling two holes about 3/8 inch (0.95 cm) through the frame and the leg balance.
5. Loading a bolt inserted 2×3 / 8 inch (5×1, 90 cm) in each hole. Place a full size washer and a wing nut threaded onto each bolt. Remove the clamps. Turn the platform to the right position.
6. Practice the timing assembly. Have each team of two platforms to take their position on stage. Install the cable-stayed. Reverse the disassembly process. Forty trained stagehands can put together a composite stage up to twenty platforms in less than three minutes.
Tips and Warnings
- Be sure to keep all the tools in the bags to prevent loss.
- Use clamps to join together multiple platforms for stability.
