Railing System

Safety first at Smartstage, keeping performers and guests safe from edges, and providing firm, steady, ergonomically friendly rail systems. We build to code, and use materials that matter, feel good to the palm. Smartstage makes rail systems for stairs, walkways, ADA ramps, stages, loading platforms, drum risers, seating systems, bleachers, multi-level platforms, concert stages, mobile stages, camera towers, viewing platforms, chorus risers, and just about any application where people need to be safe. Our rail systems feature soft radius corners, with all the right curves, and tube spacing according to the ADA. Our specially engineered rail clamp system, ensuring a clean and tight connection to the surfaces and platforms, allowing lateral impact load forces with rock steady holding power. Our rail systems are black, however they can be made in custom sizes, heights, lengths, colors, and even with LED lights in them

Smartstage experts will come to your site to oversee load in and assembly of your new system, and also train your in-house team to understand the flexibility of Smartstage, and the many combinations possible. We will stay on site until the last spot is polished. Our stages are so easy to install, we know you can do it, so we also provide phone and internet assistance as required.


Smartstage stages are engineered and laboratory tested to breaking strength. All components meet and exceed building code and OSHA code requirements for all of North America and Europe. Our factory has a three stage quality control process, certifying materials on arrival, during manufacture, and sample load testing daily during production.


Smartstage stages are largely maintenance free, always inspect for damage. Clean floor and frames with mild soap and water if and as required, surfaces are durable and contain “stain guard” properties. You can also mist and rub your entire system with WD 40 to keep it looking new, and if you ever need to touch up a scratch, use semi-gloss black spray can.


Very easy to transport, ship and load. Our special touring style carts have hanging arms, just pack your ramp and place into the rack. One rack can easily carry one whole ramp as a combination of stage decks, fastfolds, and hardware or drapery. At Smartstage, we believe attention needs to be invested into your storage needs to ensure clear movement from the venue, and optimization of your storage space whether under the stage, show to show in touring trailers, or stacked high in storage rooms by forklift.


Smartstage provides a one year warranty for the entire system. Feel free to call our home office service department for inquiries on your new system.

They all come with black baked finish, are lightweight with all the smart features. Fastfold frames are made for 3×8 decks and 4×8 decks. We will make any size frame as a custom.

What options can I get?

Smartstage makes three widths, 3’, 4’ and 8’ wide, and we also make two heights, 36” and 42”.

Smartstage guardrails can work as chair stops / kickrails too.

Technical Specifications

Stage guardrail sections must be formed from a 2” OD, minimum 16G wall, steel. Radius on out curves must not exceed 6”, and have a finished height of 36” from deck level. Guardrail section length must be such that sections leave a 4” gap between sections after installation, including corners of stage. Guardrail sections must have a sure-lock clamping device, which connects guardrail to platform in a manner, which prevent guardrail movement in any direction, and will resist outward impact resistance at the top portion of the guardrail.

Guardrail must contain internal network of tubing designed to prevent people or objects from slipping through. Guardrail section must be finished in a semi-gloss black baked on powder coat paint.

How It Works

Set your decks, stairs, GUARDRAIL, skirt, and you’re ready for a show.

To install a guardrail, simply lift from the shipping rack, set onto stage edge, hand tighten the two solid clamps, and done.
