The Spirolux StageDecker

The SpiroLux StageDecker has been designed and custom built by our in-house specialist vehicle conversion team to produce a completely unique product. No one to our knowledge has constructed a full height stage within a double-decker bus, with the majority of the stage being inside the vehicle. It truly is a world first, and we are proud that our team produced it.

We are primarily an events company with our StageDecker complimenting our extensive experience and equipment, so you can be sure you are getting the best equipment and value.

We have a fully solid construction, so unlike other many other mobile stages, we don’t have to put a stop to the event when wind speeds exceed a relatively low speed, due to their fabric roofs. We also come pre-loaded with 13 Tonnes of ballast (the vehicle) so large water tanks aren’t required.

One of the big problems we have had in the past when we hired mobile stages was the minimal height from the ground which means the audience generally can’t see all the stage when there is a crowd in front of them. To combat this, our stage platform is at 1.15m from the floor. Much more appropriate for a mobile stage.

Our StageDecker allows us to arrive on site, be fully setup and running within an hour. We are also able to completely pack down and leave site within an hour, usually faster, meaning we can run a stage in areas which are not usually suitable. 

We have utilized the upper front section of the bus as a dressing / green room with coffee machine, video / audio show relay and comfortable bench seating and table.

We handle our own power requirements, and can even power a large backstage marquee area behind the bus if required and booked in advance.

All our packages include two fully trained and qualified technicians who specialize in outdoor events and theatrical productions.

The StageDecker comes with the following kit as standard:

    For those of you wanting a little bit of information and history of our bus...

    He is a Dennis Trident 2 Chassis with ELC Lolyne H53/34F bodywork, 8.3L diesel Cummins engine generating 320HP, automatic Voith gearbox. 11.4m long first bought in 2000 by Nottingham City Transport primarily for use as rail replacement.

    We then purchased him in 2018 and began work to turn him into what you see today. This took us approximately 6 months in between other jobs. This included stripping out the entire interior, removing a section of the upper floor along with a large chunk of the side, reinforcing the appropriate areas with mid/heavy gauge steel, constructing the stage platform, building the door and lifting mechanisms then finally wiring and decorating.
