with the deck. Lock the legs into position with the brace bar and level the deck. Make sure you do
not keep tightening the adjustable leg only adjust till the stage is level.

Safety pin the decks and the roof so they cannot move again

At this point drop the steps off
the stage to make access easier during the build but leave a gap between the steps and the deck for the curtain.

Mention to the Organiser that they require a 16 amp feed to power the wind metre 

Wind Meter


Install the curtails back and side. Roll up the door hole and stick the corner Velcro together if possible.

NOTE: Sometimes you are asked if they can rig the lighting before the roof is sent up, this is allowed so long as it is less then 100KG and it is evenly spread across the whole of the roof on the rigging bars. The lighting can be installed while you install the hand rail and the curtains



Raise the roof. This is achieved by removing all the pins from the uprights and using the hand pump located in the storage box. Pump the lever until the roof reaches
its height then put the pins back it. Release the hydraulics a little to allow the roof to sit back on there pins then lock they hydraulics off.

Raise the Roof


Install the truss legs between the deck and the roof. The rear legs are the round bars. The front legs are the Truss. Depending on if you have PA wings or not depends on which leg you should use.
The singular truss is for a no pa wing stage, the truss with the attached piece is for pa wings. These can be easily changed around by taking the plate off the bottom of one and installing it on the other making sure the hole in the plate run parallel with the key hole in the top plate of the truss.

When installed bolt these legs to the deck using the bolts in the box.

Truss and Legs


Fix the curtains to the decks. This is achieved with the bungees at the bottom of the curtain.
Secure each end of the bungie to the stage first then going from one end to the other hook the bungees under the stage onto the hooks there. This should tension the curtain and pull it down the stage

Fastening Curtains

They are attached to the hand rails and/or legs of the stage to stop them moving.

Install the outer leg. Adjusting the legs at the bottom of the truss to reach the ground and give
support. The adjustable legs should go as tight as possible

outer legs


Install the bracing bars. These go between the upright legs on the stage and the pa wing truss. If the wings are being used for branding only then these braces will do, if the wings are been used for flying the PA an additional diagonal brace is installed from the outer leg back to one of the main roof uprights.
