PROLYTE Stage Deck Systems

PLSN Staff • Product News • March 25, 2020


NETHERLANDS – To facilitate their own educational process, Area Four Industries has recruited so-called ‘Rigging Commandos,’ respected experts who positively identify with the problems faced by riggers and technicians. One of these experts is Prolyte’s Product Manager, Dutch-born Eric Laanstra, whose first video available on looks at the new technology used in producing Prolyte Stage Deck Systems.

As Eric explains, the stage decks are manufactured in 3 versions. 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. 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.

One of the most common complaints reported by end users was the noise and vibrations coming from the mounted screws and rivets used to secure the top plate. The screws also became undone during transportation. A decision was made to glue the top plate into position resulting in noticeable noise reduction and no loose plates.

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
