You're probably wondering what the dimensions of different choir risers are. After all, you need to make sure that your performers fit on the equipment as your number one priority. We agree that it's the first step when purchasing a set. To help out, we have multiple kinds of choir risers, so let me break down the dimensions and options for each.
An aspect of our products that are hidden underneath the individual product pages are the fact that they work together for a wider range of uses. You can have guardrails attached to seated risers. ADA ramps are attached to stages. Adjustable stairs can be added to risers to provide safety for audience seating. Here's a complete list of all of our accessories/add-ons.
For our seated riser configurations, we have Seated Band and Choir Risers that are 3 feet or 4 feet deep for each level of the riser. Below are the specs and safety features quickly defined for your benefit. We have compiled this information directly from the portable risers product manual.
We've found out through our customers that there are many different uses for Seated Choir and Band Risers. The title implies that it's for choir and bands...and you're right. That is the primary use! Community choirs use the various levels to ensure that the audience can see all the performers - for those important performances throughout the year. School bands use the extended levels to rehearse and perform their pieces while sitting in their orchestra chairs.
