Maximize seating riser capacity and minimize labor with this portable audience seating riser system.
Versatility, flexibility, and reliability combine to make the ML-1600 Seating Riser the first choice of theater and facility managers around the world. You can seat your spectators in one of several possible configurations using the same components, and maximize seating capacity for each event. Seating Risers can be contoured to match the restraints of the venue or can accommodate pillars to allow you to increase your seating capacity in difficult areas. The one piece folding audience riser support assembly slashes hours off setup time. Just roll it into place and unfold it. The combination of our resonance-absorbing portable staging decks and the sturdy ML-1600 seating riser understructure helps spectators feel like they are on permanent risers.
One-Piece, Folding Support Assembly
Simply rolling the multi-level choir riser assembly into position and unfolding it in place. An 18-level riser is 54’ extended but only 5 1/2’ stored which saves you storage space. Maximize your seating riser capacity with sections contoured to facility structures such as pulpits, band risers, conductor’s podiums and pillars. Rely on consistent operation because the few moving parts require no tools, and seldom incur maintenance.
Build to unlimited overall seating riser width by adding more audience riser supports and portable staging decks. Configure seating to best suit the event by adding or removing levels.
Lightweight, Reversible Decks
Audiences will appreciate the StageRight portable riser deck because it feels more solid under their feet and the composite structure of the deck reduces distracting noise. Save on your initial investment by using the portable riser decks interchangeably on other StageRight portable staging support systems (such as Z-800 Multi-Purpose Staging) to facilitate diverse performance requirements.
Greatly reduce leveling time because fewer elements contact the floor and the open area allows easy access. Minimize your initial investment and save storage space because fewer supports are required.
Portal seating riser decks self-align quickly and easily, fastening without tools, clamps or clips. In a single step, placing the decks also aligns and connects the audience riser bays (sections).
Adjustable Screw Feet
Compensate for uneven floors with 3” of easy, fine-adjustment leveling. 3/4” Acme-thread screw resists damage (compared to typical “V” threads). Protect floor surfaces with sure-grip 2 1/4” diameter urethane pads.
Unfold and fold the seating riser support assembly smoothly and quietly. Reduce maintenance by eliminating metal-on-metal wear.
Reduce setup effort by rolling the choir riser support assembly to and from storage and during extension and closure. Move the entire seating riser system assembled (if desired). Eliminate movement while in use: the casters retract after the audience riser system is positioned, allowing the screw feet to contact the floor and carry the load. Non-marring 5” diameter polyurethane casters with 900 pound load rating.
