Product Focus - Stage Deck

02/04/2020

In the previous video of Stage Deck Systems , Product Manager, Eric Laanstra briefly introduces a series of Prolyte staging system. On this page, we will go through the product range in depth. 

3 versions of stage deck

(shapes and sizes on request) 

 

Top-Line Basic-Line Acrylate

The Top-Line version, with an hexagonal, anti-skipping surface is known as 'The Outdoor Version.' The wooden top plate is water-resistant rather than waterproof. This means that over a long time beneath pouring skies the product absorbs water and actually 'grows.'

The second product is the ‘Basic Line’ version. This has a birch plywood plate available in black, clear varnish or unfinished. Both decks have an indoor or outdoor version and can handle a uniform distributed loading capacity of 750kg/M2.

 

The third line available has an acrylic top deck suitable for handling a loading capacity of 500kg/M2.

Leg Pocket

Looking at the more technical aspects of the decks, on each corner of the deck is a leg pocket. The pocket is capable of holding a 48x3 mm round leg, or a 40x40 square leg. By turning a handle the leg is securely fixed in a matter of seconds.

Middle Beam

Additionally, each desk with a width of more than 50 cm has a centrally placed support beam. This is designed to support a 15mm deck top for increased stability.

Glued Top Plate

If we take a closer look at the stage decks, it will be apparent that the top plate is glued in position. The glue is absolutely unique to Prolyte. As Eric explains, by consulting with end users and fully understanding their specific requirements, the Prolyte Stage Deck Systems are extremely durable and secure. Instead of screwing or riveting the top plate, Prolyte uses its uniquely powerful glue to achieve a clean finish with no damage to the top plate. The resulting increase in efficiency and stability make the creation of truly stunning stage structures simple, safe, and extremely effective.

This is unlike other brands where the top plate is mounted with screws or rivets. A frequently heard complaint was the noise and vibration coming from the screws, which also often became undone owing to the distance traveled during transportation. Naturally, if the top plate becomes loose then vibrations are bound to occur. There is even a possibility that the top plate will fall out when being handled.

The glue is proportionally divided over the side and middle beams resulting in noticeable noise reduction and no loose plates.
