How to attach legs to Steeldeck

A Simple guide from Steeldeck's crew as they show you how to attach legs to your rented staging structures... Start by laying the deck on its side, so you have access to the slots for all four legs. Slot all four legs in, making sure they are fully located into the stage. Hand-tighten the bolts and then use a podger spanner to more securely tighten the legs. Stand the deck up. The next thing you'll need to know is how to join one piece of deck to another. The first step is to place the two piece together, making sure they are completely aligned. Then, place a screw into the designated hole and secure with a fully tightened bolt.

Using flanged legs and screwjacks to build level Steeldeck on uneven ground

Steeldeck's crew show you how to build simple Steeldeck staging structures that result in a level finish on even the most testing terrain, using flanged legs and screw jacks. For our first video example, we had already set up a 6x4, on 3 foot legs with screw jacks, which have already been pre-leveled. Start by inserting the screw jacks into the bottom of the legs that have already been bolted into the Steeldeck platform. The flanged legs replaces the need for multiple legs. You can't sit screw jacks side by side. Drop the corner posts of the new deck onto the flange of the leg that's already in place. Bolt it up straight away. Use magnetic spirit levels to check the deck is even. Once the deck is level, bolt the deck together.

How To Attach Guardrails to Steeldeck Stages

Steeldeck's crew show you how to how to attach open and balustrade guardrails to Steeldeck's staging structures for maximum stage and seating safety. Balustrade guardrails are used for public use. Open guardrails are used for performer use. Have an assistant hold the guardrail in place, preventing it from falling. Rest the pins on the bottom chord of the deck, with the back plate slotted on and the nut tightened to clamp it in position. Repeat for the other side, still making sure to hold the guardrail steady.

Attaching Steel Treads, Box Treads and Guardrails to Steeldeck

Steeldeck's crew show you how to attach step units to your stage and platforms for easy and safe access. Our video example uses a set of 3 foot steel treads going up to a 3 foot stage. Rest the steel treads on the deck so they align with the top of the stage. Bolt on handrail on either side. Ply box treads go up to 2 foot, 6 inches in height. They simply attach to the deck by means of two screws.

Building a Steeldeck Rolling Riser with small or large castors

Steeldeck's crew demonstrate how to attach castors to create a rolling riser that can be used as a moveable stage and platform. Begin by placing the deck on one side, as you would when attaching legs. Slot the casters into the corner posts on the deck and tighten the screw. Leave the lip of the casters facing outwards if they need to receive another deck. Larger casters can slot into a scaffolding tube and so can be used with our flanged leg system. This means that we can go up to any height you like for tall rolling stages.
