If you’re hiring Steeldeck from us and are planning to build with it yourself, we’ve got a series of handy videos to show you how it’s done. 

We offer a full design and build service at Steeldeck Rentals, but for companies that have their own in-house crew or for smaller stage hire projects, clients sometimes opt to simply dry hire our kit. We can arrange transport to ensure it arrives safely onsite or you can pick up your staging order direct from our branches in London and Manchester.  

In this first video, we take you through the first step in attaching legs to a Steeldeck and how to safely fasten two decks together.

How to attach legs to Steeldeck

Two adults can comfortably lift and move Steeldeck. Make sure you adopt a good lifting technique to protect your back! If you’re unsure of the best way to do it, see the NHS guidance on how to lift objects safely. 

The video shows a 6ft x 4ft Steeldeck with the top removed so you can see what’s going on a little more clearly.



The correct method for building on a flat floor, indoors is as follows:

  1. Put the legs into the four slots in the corners of the deck
  2. Make sure they’re pushed in as far as they can go
  3. Hand tighten the bolts 
  4. Use a podger to make sure they’re done up nice and tight


How to join one piece of deck to another deck 

This part is as simple as fastening two nuts and bolts along the length or width of the deck, as preferred. Job done!
