Cantilever roofs allow designers to extend stage roofs over performance areas without the need for side walls which can obstruct the view. The engineering calculations and design of these systems requires special attention to ensure they are capable of withstanding outdoor wind loading and can carry production rigging. The benefits of improving sight lines extend from simply being aesthetically pleasing to increasing the viewing angles and therefore the amount of tickets that can be sold, while also increasing the intimacy between the artist and their audience.
Recent examples of cantilever roofs can be seen on our Kew The Music stage and Elton John’s 2016 tour. Our team has the knowledge and the experience installing cantilevers at many prestigious events.
