Inova Interactive Seating

The Inova Interactive seating system is the latest generation of seating found in interactive learning spaces which are gaining favour in educational environments.  The Inova system allows alternative teaching methods to be carried out with ease while similarly providing a new learning approach to students.

Through its movement, the chair encourages students to interact within themselves and with their teacher/supervisor and helps the class work collectively and learn from one another.  It provides a creative and enjoyable atmosphere, while allowing alternative methods of teaching to be adopted.

Unlike standard lecture chairs the Inova system allows everyone to face the lecturer or turn around and interact with colleagues behind.

The System also presents greater safety benefits over-against loose swivel chairs in lecture theatre and corridor installations due to the minimised risk of obstruction in the event of a fire.  The chairs always return to a closed position which keeps workspaces and gangways clear.

The Inova system has many uses such as IT suites, canteens and library areas to name a few.  The single foot fixing for two chairs makes the system ideal in canteen applications providing you with a clutter-free floor for ease of cleaning.

How to decorate your stage for Christmas

November 2019

Christmas is the most magical time of the year. Snow falls, decorations are hung and presents are exchanged. You can make your church, school or theatre look extra special this Christmas by following our steps to decorating your stage.

The first step is to add a beautifully decorated tree. The tree can be small or big depending on the space available. The tree will need to be decorated with lights as well as baubles, ornaments and tinsel if these are available. Tree lights can be battery powered if sockets aren’t available near the stage. LED lights are the most energy efficient and budget friendly option. Every tree needs a fairy or star to make it complete. Some venues prefer having a symmetrical stage with one decorated tree on the left and the right. The tree can be real or artificial. A real tree is often harder to look after, especially if someone is not regularly visiting the church, school hall or theatre.

Display conifer branches and wreaths around the venue. Wreaths are welcoming to attendees at church gates and school hall entrances. There are fresh and artificial wreaths available at Christmas. Artificial wreaths may be the more cost effective solution as they can be used over several years if they are stored correctly at the end of the season. Decorative greenery such as conifer branches can be used on the altar, on pew ends, at the end of seating rows, on window ledges and around tables.

You can create a truly stunning backdrop by hanging lights from the ceiling, displaying long lines of lights in a row or adding lighting in a festive colour such as green or red.

Remember to check that it is safe for your actors and performers on the staging with the Christmas decorated before starting the performance. It is recommended that the decorations are already in place during the costume rehearsal to check the Christmas decorations.

No-Obligation School Staging Visit - 9th October

October 2019

There are only 72 days until schools break up for Christmas. Christmas is a really exciting time for children and holds a special place in their hearts.

Your school will be starting to think about your Christmas play or nativity after the October half term. Remember to check that your school staging is safe and fit for purpose.

The Christmas play or nativity is often the first opportunity children have to try acting and performing. You can make their first experiences of acting or performing extra special with our school staging.

CPS Manufacturing Co has two unique offerings. One of these is a no-obligation free visit to discuss your staging needs and the space available for the school staging. The other is a unique lifetime warranty for the school staging. This means we will gladly replace the staging if there are any staging issues or faults noted.

Our school staging is easy to assemble, safe, durable, lightweight and compact for easy storage. We can offer school staging platforms, curtain and truss systems, handrails, chair borders, platform connections, steps and balustrades, stage surfaces, storage trolleys, access ramps and much more.

Among our school staging platforms are the lightweight Ultralight, best-selling Alu Rapid and the Alu Rapid Junior ideal for primary schools. We also provide school staging packages for primary and secondary schools.

If you have previously bought a school stage from CPS Manufacturing Co, we can offer a service to check the staging is in working order. The staging can then be repaired should any issues be noted.

Please contact us via on our online form, via email sales@cpsmanufacturingco.com or by calling 01302 238124.
