NexGen Staging in World record speed attempt

NexGen Staging platforms used as landing pad. WATCH BELOW NexGen Platforms were recently used in a world record attempt by customer, Richard Browning of Gravity, and he breaks the world record, clocking up over 80 mph in single man rocket flight, and lands smoothly on NexGen Staging platforms on Brighton beach. Brilliant- well done Richard from all at NexGen. What on earth will NexGen platforms be used for next?

catwalk for fashion show

More than just a Portable Staging company

In mid June 2019 Chesterfield College contacted us at NexGen and asked if we could provide a stage for their annual fashion show. Of course we jumped at the chance but there was a bespoke requirement to the configuration and we had 10 days to produce. The fashion show director wanted the models to walk straight from the upper step level directly onto the main staging catwalk. So we employed our local joinery team ABS who designed some great step infills. [...]

2m x 1m Stage Deck Platforms discontinued

2m x 1m Stage Deck Platforms discontinued It used to be the case that buying the bulky 2x1m stage deck platforms and risers, made a stage area more economic to buy. NOT ANY MORE! NexGen 1m square deck platform and risers put an end to compromising flexibility for price. Buying two 1x1m modules is now similar in purchase price to the equivalent sized 2x1m stage modules. That's not where the benefits end either. NexGen staging has no locks and uses ground [...]
