Next week, thousands of live event professionals from around the globe will gather in Las Vegas for the 2021 Live Design International Show (LDI2021), where the latest in audio and lighting, production design and staging technologies will be on display. One of the highlights of this year’s show will be found in booth #1813, where Staging Concepts, a leading provider of portable staging solutions and equipment for performance venues and facilities, will showcase the newest addition to its impressive acoustic portfolio – the Caprice™ Folding Acoustical Shell Tower. Available in early 2022, the Caprice offers great value and acoustic performance and is designed to fit within standard doorways for convenient transport and placement in lower-height storage areas.
“Our new Caprice Acoustical Shell is ideal for use in theaters, educational facilities and community centers with limited storage space, or for venues that will use the shell tower in multiple locations within a building,” said Cindy Albrecht, director of sales and marketing for Staging Concepts, a Trex Company. “The tower compactly folds down from its performance height for hassle-free transport through doorways and corridors. It’s a great multi-purpose solution that is easy to maneuver, move and store.”
The unique folding design of the Caprice is made possible thanks to gas spring assistance and an integral pivoting T-handle control bar. Each tower is equipped with four swivel casters for ease of transport and positioning.
The new folding tower is available in two heights: 12′ and 16′ tall. When in its folded position, the 12′ high performance shell can fit through a standard 36″ W x 80″ H doorway, while the 16′ shell can fit through a 48″ W x 9’6″ H doorway. Customers can choose between 5′ or 6′ wide acoustical panels with painted or high pressure laminate (HPL) finish options.
“The Caprice Folding Acoustical Tower can be used as a stand-alone product in multi-purpose rooms or gymnasiums, or as part of a full stage shell system that includes shell ceilings and integral stage lighting,” noted Albrecht. “Staging Concepts offers a complete theater package of shells, orchestra pit fillers, and stage traps for all our customers’ performing arts and event needs.”
Staging Concepts will showcase the new Caprice Folding Acoustical Tower during LDI2021, November 19-21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Show attendees are encouraged to stop by booth #1813 to learn more about this innovative offering for theaters and performance venues.
In addition to the new Caprice Tower, Staging Concepts offers a robust line of acoustic shells that also includes the Crescendo™, a flexible system of portable towers and ceiling panels designed to blend and reflect sound energy towards audiences, the Aria™ shell system designed for smaller performance venues, and its top-of-the-line, fully customizable Bravado® full-stage shell.
