HIRE PERSPEX OR GLASS STAGING
See-through staging is a popular choice for many events. Whether you're shooting a video for a fashion advert, or your erecting a stage and dancefloor over an infinity pool for your wedding party (yes, we've really done that!) hiring a stage that's totally transparent really adds the wow factor to proceedings.
But given these structures are almost always bespoke (they are often thrown away afterwards as they won't work anywhere else), there's a lot that needs to go into the planning, designing, and hiring process. So let's take a look at the primary considerations that go into hiring such extraordinary structures.
+CONSIDERATIONS FOR HIRING A GLASS | PERSPEX STAGE
Of course, these aren't your usual fare when it comes to stage hire. It almost all cases, the stage design is custom, which leads us directly to considering the impact the venue has on the design, cost, and overall effectiveness of the glass or Perspex stage.
Carefully considering a location for a stage is part of the process for any type of stage hire, even in the case of enormous structures such as outdoor festival staging or car display ramps. However, it takes on an even more vital role when dealing with these types of stages.
To give you an example, if you're choosing to use one of these stages so that you can film those on the stage from underneath (a popular request from our clients in the fashion space), that's going to require a totally different set of requirements than building one on top of a swimming pool for a wedding.
Some of the work can be quite extensive. If you do indeed choose a swimming pool, you'll need to cover the costs of underwater welders, for example. Also, don't forget that your location is also going to have a massive bearing on the shape and size of the stage that we design for you.
Finally, you'll also have to take into account the nature of your event, especially in regards to load-bearing capacity. A wedding with several attendees will have to be supplied with a transparent stage capable of taking the weight of dozens of guests. But a fashion catwalk or a product launch could get away with a lot less structural reinforcement. If you're unsure of what you need, we will always be available to advise you of the safest and most effective option for your specific event.
So with those principle considerations out of the way. What types of events are well-suited to a glass or Perspex stage?
CLEAR PERSPEX & GLASS STAGING HIRE
ON TOUR EVENTS TALKS ''CLEAR STAGING'' AND SHARES SOME USEFUL INFORMATION
+HIRE A CLEAR STAGE FOR YOUR WEDDING EVENT
We've found that these types or stages are very popular at luxurious wedding events. We've even installed a few for clients based on the continent who needed to cover their outdoor swimming pool. As highlighted above, it took a lot of work, including roping in underwater welders (not our speciality!), but the end result looked absolutely fantastic.
Of course, not all clear wedding stages have to cover a swimming pool. They can still look every bit as dramatic on dry land. Acting as a show-stopping conversation piece for your guests and provide your videographer with some unique shots of your special day.
+HIRE A GLASS STAGE FOR A FASHION EVENT OR VIDEO SHOOT
Speaking of camera angles, one of the primary uses of transparent staging is in the fashion and filming industry. When elevated high enough off the ground, those operating cameras can get underneath and film models, from unusual angles.
This is often a request we receive from clients in the fashion world. However, we have been asked to provide this type of staging for music videos, film shoots, and other private events where filming underneath a stage is essential
+PERSPEX STAGE HIRE FOR BRANDING & PRODUCT LAUNCH EVENTS
As we've already mentioned, transparent stages are real showpieces. They are unusual, striking, and in most cases, custom-designed. That's why they are perfect for branded events or for product launches, where the image you convey to your attendees is everything.
Take an awards ceremony as an example. A simple black stage might not set the world on fire, but a tiered stage platform made of crystal-clear glass might generate a huge buzz online and get your event noticed.
