As we get closer to fall and the new school year, it’s time to think about getting new risers. There may be a variety of reasons why you’re considering new ones. If you aren’t sure, check out this article to see if you should make the investment in new equipment.

Now, let’s get into the things you need to consider once you’ve determined that you need new risers for your program.

What Kind of Riser do You Need?

This can be a loaded question, but it’s the first step. Typically, this isn’t that tough to figure out. Here’s a quick article about the different types of risers that are out there. Obviously, you’ll need a solution that matches your requirements whether you have an orchestra, band, or choir. Seating risers are also another type of riser you may be considering if you’re in a portable theatre space.

How Often will You Need to Move it?

Next, think through how often you’ll need to transport the equipment. This includes taking it to different spaces throughout your building or even different buildings entirely. Even within a singular type of riser, like a seated choir riser, for example, there are different options relating to these next two points, portability and storage. Some can be rolled while others can be deconstructed and easily loaded into a vehicle to transport longer distances or take on tour. Whatever your specific use case is, it’s best to find the product that’s going to work best for your needs.

How Much Storage Space do You Have?

Storage space is a huge consideration because it’s limited in most facilities. If this is true for you, don’t worry because there are options for every type of riser that can store compactly. It’s important to make sure you get a system that does this if it’s something you need. Compact storage can be accomplished through a few different ways including folding or being demountable.


If you’re planning on getting new risers for this fall, there are a few different items that must be taken into account. The most important thing is to get a system that’ll match your requirements. This can be accomplished by speaking with one of our experts. They can help walk you through the decision-making process.
