STAGINGWhen All Eyes Point To The Stage, Make Sure It’s United.
We create stages for live events, where the capabilities of most staging companies are just the foundation of our work. Functionality, cohesion, appearance, and wonderment are always inherent in our designs, which makes room for new ground-building capabilities in each of our projects.
UNI-QUE STAGE SOLUTIONS
Leave Your Limitations Backstage.
We don’t believe in live show limitations, when your event exists to evoke special feelings in the audience, you need an event stage that supports this unique connection. Our event stage design experts work with you, learn about your show and its needs, and provide recommendations and possibilities for you to make an informed decision on your custom-built stage.
Constructing your stage with only trusted stage deck brands, such as Steeldeck, StageRight, and our very own Uni-Dec, provides the structural integrity to support the design capabilities. We’ve created circular stage options, raked stages, rough terrain solutions, and multi-tiered platforms that have been the canvas for countless remarkable shows.
We offer stage decks in 4x8, 4x4, 2x8, 4ʹ triangular, and custom round sections.
Additional options include rolling stages for both indoor and outdoor applications. We can customize staging to suit nearly any situation, including tiered stages for seating risers, and choral risers. Staging applications include concert stages, drum risers, mix positions, choral risers, fashion runways, AV platforms, and camera support. We have a wide assortment of accessories including staircases, skirting, handrail, chair rail, and ADA-compliant access ramps.
The unique perimeter extrusion of Uni-Dec creates new capabilities for stage accessories that deliver versatility in both the range of accessories and on-the-spot adjustability.
With an in-house design and manufacturing team, you can capitalize on the capabilities of Uni-Dec with our designers equipped to fulfill your custom stage and accessory solutions.
AUDIENCE SEATING RISERS
Elevate your audience’s experience through a seating riser configuration that enhances vision, sound, and feeling.
We provide multi-level seating riser construction, completely customizable to your stage, performance, and venue needs.
Multi-level seating risers allow your audience to have visibility and an enjoyable experience for extended times wherever they’re located, which makes them excellent for auditoriums, church choirs, concert bands, musical theater, and graduations.
Though, their tidy appearance makes them equally suited to more formal events, like sporting awards, dinner parties, corporate events, and parades.
Leveraging the strength of our trusted Uni-Dec stage decks – your audience is in the safest hands.

Installs are supervised by a United Staging qualified person. Add Weather Monitoring for extra assurance for your insurance.
Inclement weather poses serious risk to structures, installers, show technicians, and crowds.

As an additional service, we can develop the High Wind Action Plan for your outdoor structure and supplement it with accurate weather monitoring and prediction through WeatherOps® Live Event Services. Don’t become a headline.
Ground supported structures are firmly secured by our ballasting solutions. Ready for rent ballasts include concrete barrier
blocks with and without rebar anchor points, water totes, folding frame water tanks with quick-release valves, and UNIBLOC ballasts.
Intelligent structural designs require the smartest ballasting solutions. Our very own UNI-BLOC ballast features:

When used in conjunction with a transom system, we can easily add stage decks to create any type of elevated and multi-level platforms for camera jibs, strategically positioned lighting equipment, and more.
CONCERT CROWD CONTROL BARRICADES
Portable crowd control barricades go hand-in-glove with fairgrounds, festivals, outdoor events, and ticketing booths, where your audience needs guidance to navigate the space without chaos and danger.
