These 3.3m set flats are built from responsibly sourced, PSE (planed square edge) redwood timber. A mixture of 2×1 and 2×2 grade wood is used and all joints are glued and double screwed. Timber is checked throughout the construction process and frames are built to strict plans with a +/- 0.5mm tolerance. All timber receives a water based black stain before assembly.
White Production Design’s set flats are graded and serviced every time they come back to the warehouse. If a panel is deemed suitable as A or B grade it will then be serviced, packed and stored. If a flat has too many small defects or a single large defect it will be failed & quarantined. Failed panels then get assessed and there are two potential outcomes. If the framework is structurally sound and not too worn it will be stripped, serviced and recovered. At that point it will be an A-grade panel again. If the frame is deemed to be past its best it will be stripped of fabric and disassembled. The timber is then transferred to our lucky-timber stock that is used for on site bracing and consumables.
Our hire stock includes a significant stock of flats which allows us to undertake all but the largest of set build projects. We are confident in producing very large one-piece covers on site. To enhance our staging and backdrop services we have an in-house work shop that is equipped with a range of modern machinery and a 3m x 2m CNC router. To complement our set building department we have a full range of staging, rigging, sound, lighting and video equipment in stock.
