All About Stages, Platforms and Runways

Do you need a stage, platform or runway?  Call Indestructo Party Rental at 847-375-8510 for all your staging needs.  We have staging in 4′ x 8′ modular sections that can be configured to meet your needs.  Sections start at 8″ in height, with 8″ increments up to 40″ high.

A raised platform is generally used for speakers, displays or light entertainment.  They are low enough and may not need stairs.  They can be configured as a single level or multi-level.  Platforms have a wood top that is usually carpeted.  They come with perimeter skirting.

Stages and Runways are usually higher, 24″ to 40″ and require 2, 3 or 4 stairs.  We recommend adding a safety railing for stages 32″ or higher.  Runways can be any height, width and length because of the modular design.

In addition to staging, Pipe and Drape can create a backdrop for a performance, a private enclosure for a photo booth or a dressing room.  If needed, a handicapped ADA ramp with a no skid surface can be installed.  Call Indestructo Party Rental at 847-375-8510 for all your staging needs.

Pipe & Drape Systems – 101

A Pipe & Drape System is extremely versatile and can be used for a variety of reasons and events. It starts with steel bases, aluminum pipes and fabric and ends up with a temporary custom partition structure.

Pipe and Drape is used to create eye-catching trade show booths when hosting a trade show, job fair or business expo. It is also used as a backdrop for ceremonies, performances, photo shoots or behind the head table at a wedding. Use Pipe & Drape to create a temporary wall to divide a room, hide construction during a renovation, conceal an unsightly area or prevent access to a section of a building. Pipe & Drape can build a hallway or a private enclosure for a photo booth or dressing room. Transform a large room into a more intimate space with Pipe & Drape.
