Breadth of Experience with Stage Turntables, Lifts and Wagons
Macton has six decades of experience in producing stage equipment for theaters, concert venues, schools and religious facilities. Equipment includes lifts, wagons, turntables and turntable wagons which can be used to set up the stage or to reconfigure the stage (or the room) which they serve. Scalable from the largest theaters to community schools, Macton will collaborate with you and your team to provide a solution. Macton stage equipment has proven reliability in theaters, concert halls, churches, civic centers and multi-use community halls.

Turntables – Macton stage turntables are well known for their unfailing reliability and silent efficiency. Turntables can be either permanently anchored in one position on the stage or part of moveable wagons to provide positioning flexibility. Macton installations in the area of theaters and concert venues include the revolving stages of New York's Metropolitan Opera House, Jones Beach Marine Stadium (which has been in continuous use for over 40 years) and the classic stage turntable in Frank Lloyd Wright's Dallas Theatre. Other Macton turntable applications include revolving stages for television productions, revolving bandstands and exhibit and display turntables.

Lifts and Wagons – Macton has provided theater equipment, including stage wagons and lifts, for locations such as the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, The Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, The Metropolitan Opera House in New York City and Tsim Sha Tsui Cultural Center in Hong Kong. Work has also included high school orchestra lifts. Call on Macton to support your project with a custom lift, stage wagon, moveable seating structure or other dynamic structures.


Increased Usage of Facilities – These stages, lifts and other similar equipment provide more flexible use and greater utilization of the facility in question by allowing for quick changes in how that particular space is used.

Long-Term Reliability – Macton stages, lifts and other similar equipment have been in service for decades and move smoothly and quietly day in and day out for years.

Minimal Maintenance Required – These systems require only a minimal amount of routine maintenance each year, which can be scheduled for times when the facility is not normally in operation – as a result, this minimal annual maintenance does not entail operational disruptions or expensive downtime for the servicing of this equipment.

Full Support of Architect Throughout Project – Macton provides full support throughout the entire project, beginning with the initial design of the system to be built, during which time Macton’s engineering staff interfaces with the project’s architects to provide the practical assistance and the detailed technical support needed to integrate its equipment into the overall installation. This support includes providing foundational, electrical, plumbing and control requirements, trim details, data for structural analysis and any other assistance the project requires.

Ease of Equipment Installation – Macton provides a specially-trained field engineer or technician to supervise the installation, start-up and commissioning of its equipment, ensuring that it is brought on-line quickly and delivers the expected performance.

Ongoing Post-Sale Support – Macton also provides long-term spare parts and technical support services. Long-term service contracts are also available at each of these installations for periodic inspection and maintenance programs, as well as training services, as needed. In addition, Macton provides customers with the ability to easily upgrade their control panels, drives and other systems to ensure they reflect the latest in technology.

Standard 5 Year Warranty – The equipment is warranted to be free from defects in material or workmanship for a period of five (5) years from the date it’s shipped from Macton’s facility.  Accordingly, during such 5-year period, Macton will repair or replace any such defective parts or equipment at Macton’s cost (including covering all shipping costs).  If required to trouble-shoot such equipment, Macton will provide the services of an onsite field service engineer, and if any such defects are found to exist, Macton will pay the labor and travel costs of such field service engineer.  This warranty is void if the equipment is installed without supervision by a Macton representative.  This warranty does not cover: (i) water damage, or damage due to chemical corrosion or from dirt or debris on or around the equipment, (ii) any damage caused by improper use or accident, or from the failure to perform the recommended periodic maintenance on the equipment, (iii) normal wear and tear, (iv) portions of the equipment repaired or modified by others without Macton’s prior written approval, or (v) any additional onsite labor, tools or equipment required for the inspection, removal and reinstallation of any parts of the equipment.
