Litedeck 8ft x 4ft Stage Unit with Ply Decking
LiteDeck is one of the highest performing and most popular decking systems in the world of demanding touring productions. Tried and tested internationally, it is a lightweight yet robust staging solution that can be relied upon to perform.
LiteDeck system is designed to provide a 5kn/m2 uniform load rating in all configurations, when used in complience with our assembly guide lines. Only genuine Litestructures components should be used, and full design calculations and assembly layouts are available on request.
The key to the impressive touring performance of LiteDeck is the spaceframe aluminium construction. Manufactured from high strength 6082T6 aluminium section, the frame utilises the same technology as entertainment truss systems, with regular diagonal braces to transfer loads to the outer edges of the structure.
LiteDeck is completed by the addition of a variety of options for the top board surface. Standard, and by far the most popular finish, is robust 19mm plywood painted matt black, which is connected, as with all tops, by a set of bolts which allow removal, maintenance and replacement over the life of the deck. For more elaborate applications, LiteDeck is also available with clear macrolon tops to allow the transmission of lights from the under stage, or open aluminium mesh tops, to facilitate the use of pyrotechnics or smoke effects.
Introduced specifically in response to feedback from touring productions, the optional TopLok system offers time savings, and hence crew cost benefits, in the assembly of any stage configuration. Utilising an integrated claw catch design, decks can be joined from above with the single turn of an allen key, ensuring the fastest possible build and strike times.
Shapes and Sizes
The LiteDeck system is available in a wide range of shapes and sizes, allowing hundreds of stage configurations to be created from a relatively narrow stock of standard components. LiteDeck is also available in either imperial or metric measurements, ensuring compatibility with structural formats across the world.
Litestructures' stage decking system is manufactured from high tensile aluminium alloy grade 6082T6. The material has a 0.2% proof stress of 225MN/m2. The sections are extruded and comply with BSEN755-2.
The decking frame is constructed through the TIG welding process and is carried out in accordance to specifications laid out in BS3019: part 1: Specification for TIG welding of aluminium by welders certified to BS:EN:287-2: Approval testing of welders for fusion welding - part 2: aluminium and its alloys.
The deck is made from 19mm standard grade plywood, similar to that used on truck platforms. It has a high resistance to point loads and can carry the loads associated with staging.
