Performa – Heavy Duty Stage Platforms

Performa – Heavy Duty Stage Platforms

Performa is an extremely strong and versatile staging system designed for when you need that extra capacity to hold heavy equipment. The system is similar to our Cameo stage but has 7.5kN per square metre weight loading, ideal for holding weighty and bulky stage props like grand pianos.

Feature summary

  • Modular installation with 2m x 1m and 1m x 1m standard platforms (custom sizes available)
  • Super-strong and durable aluminium construction
  • 7.5kN per square metre weight loading
  • Innovative Leg Lock feature for easy setup/dismantle
  • Designed and constructed in Mainstage’s UK factory

The versatility of Performa makes it suitable for all kinds of settings, but it is perhaps most suited to large scale installations. Just some of the many users of this system include theatres, universities, and exhibition centres. You can achieve both single-level and tiered configurations.

Performa has our unique and innovative Leg Lock feature for super-easy setup and dismantling. This allows you to quickly attach and remove the stage legs in record time. It is the most user-friendly and durable feature of its kind on the market. The glass-filled nylon handle is stronger than steel, ensuring it will never break.

Like all of our stages, Performa is compatible with innovative storage options. Many accessories are also available to enhance the usability of the stage.

Durable construction for heavy-duty use

Performa is designed and manufactured in the UK from carefully selected high-quality materials. The stage is hard-wearing and able to withstand continual heavy pressure, ensuring it will last for many years into the future.

A purpose-built hollow aluminium extrusion provides extra rigidity and strength, perfect for when you need the stage to have a consistent flat feel with no ‘give’.

Cameo (Left) vs Performa (RIGHT)

Each modular platform has a thickness of 4 inches (100mm), yet is relatively easy to carry and manoeuvre by two people. You can choose any height, width or depth, or even request cutouts so you can achieve custom shapes to fit your environment.

Performa As A 2 Person Lift

The 4-inch thickness is compact enough to allow for storage and transport via our custom-built storage options.

Perfect for holding heavy stage props

It is the super-strong construction and high weight loading capacity that makes Performa the perfect stage for holding people and heavy equipment.

Exhibition centres often use Performa for events where a strong stage is crucial to the successful delivery of performances. Concert halls may use the stage to hold a full concert size grand piano. And theatres can use Performa if performances require the use of heavy stage props.

Similarly to our Cameo system, Performa can also be used for creating custom stage shapes for an orchestra pit. Or for drum kit risers, single-level, and tiered designs.

Add accessories fast with the integrated bolt rail

Another useful and innovative feature of Performa is the dual integrated bolt rail. This allows you to quickly and easily attach a range of accessories, such as step units, guard rails, kickboards, and fascia boards. The second boltrail is equally useful for connecting bracing to the legs to prevent any lateral movement when working at height. The system can also accommodate backdrops, valances, and bespoke carpeted options.

Performa Stage Packs

Whether you require a small or larger installation, Performa single-level stage packs allow you to create a basic one-level stage to suit your exact needs. Note: these packs are merely a guide, and any size configuration based on 2m x 1m and 1m x 1m is possible.
