Africa’s biggest stage roof arrives!
SS Stage Structures with Eurotruss raise Africa’s biggest stage roofing structure for the international act, Bastille, concert-tour to Johannesburg on the 11th January 2014.
South Africa’s stage presence is set to grow exponentially with the arrival of what will be the largest touring stage roofing structure available on South African shores.
Proud owners SS Stage Structures will, with the support of Eurotruss build technicians, raise the MASSIVE 35m x 15m Eurotruss PR-10 aluminium roof structure for the first time at Emmarentia Dam, Johannesburg for the Bastille concert-tour to South Africa.
Take a minute to picture this giant. One of only five of its kind in the world, the roof has a load bearing capacity of 38 000 kg’s and measures in at thirty-five (35) meters wide, fifteen (15) meters deep and sixteen metres (16) high. Add to this its self-climbing capacity and speed of build with adherence to all international structural safety regulations; the PR-10 roof will be hard to miss!
Mike Niksch, owner of SS Stage Structures, says: “Aluminium roof systems were never for me but deliberations with Eurotruss and Prosound convinced me otherwise. Their years of competence and experience, the impressive load bearing capacity of the roof and Eurotruss’ reputation for the best aluminium roof design convinced me that this is the time to get in and create a new standard in roofing.”
SS Stage purchased their very first roof from Prosound way back in the early 1990’s and have always been ahead of the game in terms of staging in SA. “It was almost a no-brainer that we would be working together again to bring the largest roofing structure to South Africa,” says Mark Malherbe, Prosound Technical Director.
The PR-10 brings huge advantages to the table for promoters, venue owners and event rental companies. The speedy build-time, with the exceptionally spacious performance and technical areas coupled with the immense load bearing make this roof an obvious choice.
Already confirmed for international touring act, Bastille in January 2014, the stage caters perfectly to the growing South African concert market.
The stage will be available for viewing from the 7th to the 10th of January in situ at Emmarentia.
