Theatre professionals know how important it is to have a stage floor that is hardwearing enough to withstand all the fit ups, get outs and rigging that needs to be completed for every show - floors that will happily accommodate trucks, flats and scissor lifts.

Harlequin work alongside architects and stage consultants to design, build and install stage floors which will satisfy this need for strength, as well as being easy to maintain and flexible, with the optional inclusion of dip traps, orchestra pit fillers and provision for trap doors or ballet wagons.

When an existing stage floor finds itself in need of refurbishment, Harlequin offer a range of services including:

  • sanding and repainting existing wooden floors
  • replacement of a 'sacrificial' hardwood top layer
  • installation of hardwearing Harlequin Standfast performance vinyl, glued and welded to provide a smooth, easy to clean surface.

In some cases, where the refurbishment may require a partial rebuild, an initial site visit by the Harlequin technical team is required. They will work with the venue's technical staff, building contractor or architect to jointly establish which structural elements can be retained and which must be replaced.
