Arena Grid

Stageco developed Arena Lift, a new hydraulic lifting system that raises larger ground supports with grids into venues to increase rigging capacities. The innovative Arena Lift was used for the first time on a run of Cirque de Soleil's Saltimbanco shows, where a 20.4m high, 21.8 x 24m mother grid was installed into venues all over the world. Arena lift is based around four hydraulic lifting units that form the bases at the corners of the ground support towers. It has been designed with user-friendly touring features. Four Stageco crew can build and raise a 25m square mother grid in 12 hours, and the compact components allow for efficient packing to give cost-effective transport and make loading through small venue entrances possible.
