Seated Music Risers

For our seated riser configurations, we have Seated Music Risers that are 3 feet or 4 feet deep for each level of the riser. Below are the specs and safety features quickly defined for your benefit. We have compiled this information directly from the portable risers product manual. 

Technical Specifications: 

Function: Movable seating riser to enhance sound projection and sight lines for band, orchestra, and/or choral performances and practices.

Understructures: The three or four levels are fully integrated front-to-back and accept the honeycomb reversible decks. The understructures fold accordion style, have no loose parts, and are operated without tools.

Locator Nodes: Conical nodes on the understructure guide the decks into location and proper alignment, securing them in place without tools, clamps, or clips.

Bridging: Alternating sections of riser are composed of decks that bridge between understructures and self-align with no separate clamping or connecting processes.

Setup and Take-down: No component requiring manual lifting weighs more than 86 – 112 pounds, depending on the model. 


One-piece, Three-level Understructure: Save time compared to unfolding or attaching multiple separate legs, like the older models. The three levels are pre-aligned and connected. Perform with confidence on a stable, wobble-free platform as compared to the three separate sections that have folding or plug-in legs.

Light-weight, Reversible decks: Use less effort by lifting less weight, handling decks separately from the understructure. Save on your initial investment by using the decks interchangeably, with other support systems, to facilitate diverse performance requirements. Enjoy a performance free of undesirable resonance and foot noise, both of which are absorbed by the honeycomb core. Reduce maintenance costs because two sides give you twice the wear life. Choose the performance surface that best suits the event with the optional PolyTrac on one side and carpet on the other side, or PolyTrac on both sides. 

Decks Bridge Between Understructures: Reduce setup time by decks automatically aligning and locking together side-to-side and front-to-back on locator nodes. Save time during setup because no separate clips, clamps, or tools are required to lock units together. Minimize initial investment by fewer understructures being required. Utilize convenient, unobstructed storage space beneath the riser.

Accessories: Hardclosures perform safely and function as chairstops. You will perform on a riser that looks finished and professional, and improve sound reflection. Chairstops perform safely as well. In addition, they save time during setup as the steel bars lock into the deck edging without tools or loose parts. Guardrail prevents accidental tumbles with sturdy steel rails. They save time during setup as the rails attach securely to the deck without tools or loose parts.
