Porta-King Building Systems is a recognized industry leader in the manufacturing of structural steel towers used for a variety of security applications. However, in addition to security functions, Porta-King also constructs towers for a variety of other uses, including band towers. If your marching band is composed of more than a couple dozen members, chances are you need a band tower. Band towers allow directors to view a band’s formations from a bird’s eye view, giving you an edge against your school’s competition.
As part of Porta-King’s mezzanine division, band towers follow our other prefabricated towers’ guidelines. Choose between a 32 or 48 foot tower, but keep in mind that a 32 foot tower can be shipped to your location as a single unit, allowing faster assembly time compared to towers built completely on-site. This timeliness guarantees minimal interruption in your school’s sports and marching band activities.
Since students and teachers alike will use band towers, Porta-King takes every precaution in keeping their structures safe. Like all Porta-King towers, band towers are constructed out of structural steel components, following International Building Code (IBC). A band tower’s design can also dictate any additional safety measures. For instance, a guard railing with full-perimeter public access allows a reasonable amount of mobility for directors, but Porta-King can also add a woven mesh to the railing to ensure additional security. Even an internal galley-type stair can keep climbers from falling backwards off the vertical steps. These simple addition can prevent any number of potential accidents and should be seriously considered before choosing your band tower’s official design.
We realize that school budgets are often restricting for extra curricular activities such as marching band. That’s why Porta-King offers a great money-saving option for your tower to prevent general wear and tear and ward off future repair jobs. Our galvanized steel construction option counteracts weather-induced rusting, allowing your band tower to last as long as possible.
