Are you looking for a creative way to bring a stage to life or make an impact with a media wall?
Temporary walls, or flats, are an easy and versatile solution and an important part of event production.
To give you some inspiration, Staging Rentals & Construction has shared their top six ways to use flats in events:
1. Media walls
Media walls set the scene for a red-carpet event, providing the perfect background for VIP and guest photos as they arrive.
Flats wrapped with printed vinyl create the ideal background to ensure picture-perfect photo opportunities and prominent brand exposure.
2. Stage backdrop
Flats are a great way to frame a stage. Use them along the back of the stage to create a backdrop that can be decorated and customised or left blank and projected onto.
Creating the backdrop can also hide anything behind the stage area that might detract from the show.
3. Flats as fascia around stages
We all want a professional smooth stage fascia, however some elements of a stage build, such as the use of screw jacks, can make a smooth fascia impossible. The use of flats as a hard fascia around stages can cover a multitude of sins.
Flats as fascia around stages are also particularly useful for very high stages or outdoor stages that need to withstand the elements and wind.
Used in this way, flats can serve a double purpose! As well as the fascia, by using flats that extend above the height of the stage, you can create a control surround.
4. Artistic stages
The creative use of flats can deliver a set design that has impact and impresses your audience.
You can use flats in different shapes and sizes, position them on a stage to create depth, use flats with cut outs for dramatic lighting effects, or decorate them with scenic art – the possibilities are only limited by imagination – and budget!
5. Room screens/divides/temporary walls
Flats can provide a flexible solution to change the floor plan of a room or event space.
Use flats to create room screens, divide a space into different sections, or change the size of a room so it’s more appropriate for your audience size.
6. Display walls
Flats are a great way to add additional temporary display walls to any event.
Whether it’s for a special collection at an art gallery or museum, or the display of poster abstracts and content at a conference, flats are a flexible, cost-effective temporary solution.
