50m Super Structure
Our award-winning 50m Super Structure has played host to some of the world’s finest DJing talents.
On the back of it’s roaring success at Creamfields 2016, the Super Structure was once again used in November 2016 on Liverpool Docks for a Cream endorsed event, in Victoria Park, London for a new Eric Prydz stage show in April 2017 and at both Creamfields 2017 and 2018.
Boasting a diverse range of applications, our fully weatherproof, interchangeable Super Structure can be constructed in a number of different configurations.
The newly developed 2.072m beams can be adapted for large loadings and big spans to create structures as diverse as pedestrian bridges, aircraft hangers, warehouse storage facilities, TV & film outdoor studio spaces or set locations as well as temporary venues and live music stages.
Acorn’s Super Structure’s first outing as Creamfield’s Steel Yard caught the attention of many on the festival scene and the world of staging and Acorn scooped three industry awards. We were honoured to receive the “Innovation Award 2017” at the National Access and Scaffolding Confederation conference (NASC), “Best Stage 2017” and “Best Stage 2018” at Festival Supplier Awards and “Best Staging Supplier 2017” at the Event Production Awards.
NASC judges commented “Acorn came through in creating an innovative structure using an innovative product… it is an exceptional product borne out of determination to reach solutions in close liaison with a manufacturer and client… innovation at its best”.
Commenting on Acorn’s work, the Festival Supplier Awards’ judges acknowledged that “Acorn’s stage is an original and impressive creation… demonstrating real innovation… a breath-taking piece of work that moves the whole industry forward”.
The Event Production Award was awarded to Acorn for having “created genuine impact and demonstrating real innovation” for the introduction of it’s Super Structure.
“We’re experiencing more demand from every corner of the events industry for structures which create impact and meet increasingly ambitious production specifications,” says Andy Nutter, Acorn’s Managing Director.
“The reaction on social media to the new structure has been phenomenal, demonstrating how the introduction of our Super Structure addresses a specific market need for temporary structures which push the boundaries and provide the foundations for great events”.
