Theatre

Harlequin design and install performance floors and stages, working with stage engineers and theatre consultants in leading venues across the world.

Harlequin’s services include the building and refurbishment of complete bespoke stage systems, the refurbishment of existing stages and the design and installation of sprung floors and performance surfaces.

Theatre professionals demand hard-wearing stages able to withstand fit ups, get outs and the rigging required for every performance. Harlequin products deliver on strength, flexibility and meeting demanding technical requirements such as dip traps, trap doors, ballet wagons and orchestra pit fillers.

Stage building and refurbishment

Harlequin work alongside architects and stage consultants to design, build and install stage floors which will satisfy this need for strength, as well as being easy to maintain and flexible, with the optional inclusion of dip traps, orchestra pit fillers and provision for trap doors or ballet wagons.

When an existing stage floor finds itself in need of refurbishment, Harlequin offer a range of services including:

  • sanding and repainting existing wooden floors
  • replacement of a ‘sacrificial’ hardwood top layer
  • installation of hardwearing Harlequin Standfast performance vinyl, glued and welded to provide a smooth, easy to clean surface.
