< Ballasts & Base Extensions

Raising The Roof

Our unique base extensions have been designed by Silver Stage in-house and are fully engineered and certified to handle extreme weather conditions.

Base extensions can add an additional 0.5m to 1.2m of height to our Single, Duo, Tri and Multi SaddleSpan™ structures, allowing for vastly improved sightlines to the stage. The added height is also used to allow more headroom when a large performance rider is required.

From the S1000 to the huge S5000 5V, our base extensions will raise the roof to create a truly epic experience.

Glastonbury Festival 2013

Re-imagining the dance field as Silver Hayes was a massive project. To have Silver Stage supply such an iconic structure as the one we used for the Sonic Stage was unbelievable and no doubt helped us to create the image we were looking for. The silver colour was perfect for Silver Hayes, whilst the shape, design and visual impact gave our loyal festivalgoers a new icon to enjoy.

The technical side of things was also made easy thanks to the structure being able to support much of the lighting production, whilst customer access in and out of the venue was easy thanks to the ‘V’ shape. We can’t wait to see it up again next year.
