Innovative Stage Designs
We set out to build stages that are by design simple machines. Our fresh look at how to better package the stage system has resulted in ultra low profile mobile stage that can be towed by a standard pick up truck (with a V6!). We replaced complex hydraulics with simple winches. Cordless drill is all that is needed to raise the roof. The cost of the entire hoist is about the same as one hydraulic valve.
Welcome to Great Lakes Stage Company
We offer a brand new concept in mobile staging where trailering & storage are as important as presentation & function. While achieving these high performance standards, our guiding principle was, simplicity first. Keeping this in mind we have used elegantly simple mechanical principles to operate the stage system. The innovative simplicity reduces content, making our stages the most affordable in the industry
What sets us apart
Our low profile towing is achieved by how we have packaged the stage components. The deck wings store directly on top of the main deck of the trailer. The roof wings fold up inside the main roof structure. The final element of the low profile system is our hinged column design. Another unique feature of our simple mechanical systems; the lift winch is powered by a cordless drill (really!) This system is an example of simplicity & weight reduction
•Our design concepts have been certified by a professional engineering firm, specializing in temporary outdoor entertainment structures. The design concepts were verified and tested in a computer lab using the most up to date standards. Safety features include certification to ASTM & IBC standards. The design includes a high wind action plan certified for wind speeds up to 67 MPH
