Custom Harlequin Performing Arts Floor Takes Centre Stage In Hanoi

News Image
When the United Nations International School of Hanoi, Vietnam looked for a multi-purpose floor for their performing arts facility, they naturally turned to Harlequin.
The stage floor specification called for a robust solution that could take the wear and tear of school productions, stage props, trucks and scenery construction and yet offers a cushioned floor and non-slip surface for dance.
Hong Kong based Harlequin Asia took responsibility for the supply and installation of a specially constructed Harlequin semi-sprung batten floor system, with a Harlequin Standfast™ performance surface. A combination that provides durability as well as slip-resistance for performers.
Dave Porter, Director of Operations at the United Nations International School of Hanoi takes up the story. “Harlequin provided us not only with a durable Harlequin Standfast floor but also a professional stage sub-floor build-up, customised to suit our school’s needs. Our stage floor is being put to the test daily by our students and can withstand the harsh climate conditions here in Vietnam.”
Harlequin Standfast is an extremely hard-wearing performance floor intended for permanent installation, suitable for heavy duty use and ideal for stages, percussive dance, multi-purpose use and ballet.
The school has a student roll of 285 representing 42 nationalities, a teaching staff of 42 and a non-teaching support staff of 50.
