Mobile stage elements

Turn any horizontal surface into a stage either in- or outdoors!

The system can be assembled in minutes without any special tools!

Schnakenberg [1] NIVOflexx [2] mobile stage elements are also available in special sizes in accordance with individual requests!

Our mobile stage elements are available in two variations: with foldable legs or a scissor construction.

The NIVOflex mobile stages with foldable legs can be ordered either in the desired fixed height, or with telescopic legs. For the sake of easy maintenance and repairs each element can be individually exchanged or reordered.

How high should it be?
Our NIVOflex Light, NIVOflex Event and NIVOflex Multi systems can be fitted with various types of legs in the requested height. You can choose between plain pipe/fixed legs or adjustable telescopic ones. Rubber and plastic footpads are available for every type of leg.
Practical accessories!
Due to their multifunctional profiles we can augment our stages with various elements: we can add skirts, special wooden covers, guardrails, or even stairs. The platforms are usually shipped with 22 mm plywood sheets. They can be shipped with water-repellent coating for outdoor use as well.
Would you like to know more about mobile stages?

Since NIVOflex scissor Airstage platforms are installed recessed into the floorspace they are always “at hand”. They require no storage space, neither do they have to be moved from one location to another.

The platforms can be set to various heights. Our NIVOflex Airstage platforms can be lifted using a T-handle/wrench. A bayonet lock can be found on the top of the stage, which can be opened using a T-handle. During opening the height of the platform can be adjusted by pulling or pushing the lever. Lifting is aided by gas springs built into the scissor elements. The precise construction guarantees safe and easy height adjustment in 20 or 16 2/3 centimetre steps.

The height of the system when closed is only 20 centimetres, thus they can be lowered into most floorspaces even after the fact. Assembly is done using screws, so maintenance and repair becomes much easier as every element can be replaced individually. The multifunctional profile enables the extension of mobile stages with various elements: they can be augmented with skirts, special wooden covers, guard rails, or even stairs.
