Staging Concepts, a provider of portable staging solutions and equipment for performance venues, has expanded its acoustical shell line with the addition of the Crescendo Acoustical Shell. Offering value and acoustic performance, the Crescendo is a portable acoustic system designed to enhance the sound quality and visual appeal of performance spaces.
A flexible system of portable towers and ceiling panels designed to blend and reflect sound energy towards audiences, the Crescendo bridges the gap between Staging Concepts’ Aria shell system designed for smaller performance venues and its customizable Bravado full-stage shell.
The shell tower is constructed with an aluminum alloy center frame and two pivoting wings for the attachment of the acoustically reflective panels. Its ceiling system supports 10-foot radius ceiling panels, focusing on minimizing the rigging requirements by reducing weight and offering the customer a cost-effective solution.
Customers may choose from a variety of tower and ceiling panel finishes and lighting options. Towers are available in heights from 16- to 32-feet with widths from 8- to 12-feet. Tower and ceiling panel finish options include painted, Formica brand high pressure laminate (HPL), low pressure laminate (LPL) and standard veneer offerings. Additionally, ceiling panels are typically supplied with integrated incandescent or LED lighting fixture options per the customer’s request.
The Crescendo system also is designed for efficient setup and takedown to accommodate spaces that demand flexibility. It includes a wheeled mover, easing the process of transporting, positioning and storing towers. The tower bases nest together to minimize the storage area required.
