Construction Advantages
  • One person can move & set-up these risers
  • Simply roll the FR-36 Portable Choral Risers into place and unfold it
  • Save time and expend little effort as the counterbalance aids in lifting
  • Reposition the treads to group your risers in either a straight or semicircular alignment
  • Rely on the built-in back rail to protect choir members
  • Each unit measures 72” wide x 65 1/2” high (including back rail)
  • Includes 3 treads at 8”, 16”, and 24” high
  • 4th level is available upon request, with a height of 32”

Cantilever Folding Mechanism: Reduce the risk of back strain because the counterbalance aids in lifting. Save time and energy because tread stringer moves in one easy motion. Safely roll Riser to-and-from storage thanks to the low center of gravity.

Reversible Treads: Choose either straight or semicircular configuration for your performance. Save time—no tools required to release and reposition treads. Sound better during the performance—carpeting muffles distracting foot noise. Save money on maintenance and replacement because the plywood, framed with extruded aluminum, lasts longer than the pressboard used in old-style risers.

Tubular Steel Frame: Give your performance a professional ambiance while you give performers a sense of safety and stability. Improve your performance by eliminating distracting creaks. Optional Fourth Level with no tools required.

Integrated Back Rail: Perform more safely, protecting against accidental tumbles. Locking casters assure your chorus risers stay securely in place, while the self-locking assembly makes setup quick and easy. The new treads on the FR-36 have no sharp corners, and are substantially quieter, so distracting noises never become a part of your performance. Anti-fray carpet means your risers stay looking newer, longer. We also have ADA ramps you can add to your purchase to accommodate your venue’s safety codes.

Nylon Bushings: Metal-on-metal wear is eliminated, which saves you money by extending the time between replacement. Reduce maintenance costs, as the folding mechanism does not need adjustments. Reduce labor effort because nylon is self-lubricating, providing smooth operation.

    We use the risers with chairs for Choir classes, and remove chairs to dance on the risers for Show Choir. I love having the flexibility to move them, take them down or put them up on stage as our needs change. They are easy to set-up/tear-down.

    Excellent blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any discussion boards that cover
    same topics talked about in this article? I’d really like to be a
    part of group where I can get responses from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.

    If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Many thanks!

    Since we started using these new Risers – more adults have joined our Choir…they don’t worry about standing on these Risers…they are sturdy!

    This company was a pleasure to deal with from the quotation phase through to delivery. Our risers were delivered on the promised date as promised. In my 30 years of working in the construction and facility professions, I have never received a delivery that was so carefully loaded and transported. I would not hesitate to do business with McDonnell and Company in the future.

    Our Fold & Roll Portable Choral Risers work like a dream! As the Choral Director – I often set up 6-8 Risers without any help. These Risers are strong and safe.
