Sports Video Towers

Sports practice facilities at high schools, colleges and even professional levels often need to be viewed from a high vantage point so coaches, videographers, or others can have an unobstructed view of the playing field. Prefabricated sports video & viewing towers offer coaches and other staff a practical and affordable area where they can view field activities.

Keeping Occupants Safe at Heights in Sports Video Towers

When videographers and other personnel are in a tower, they need to focus on the task at hand without having to worry about safety. All prefabricated steel observation towers come with safety features that ensure a comfortable working environment:

  • Internal galley stairs with integral hand and guard rail increase safety for those ascending or descending to help prevent trips and other accidental falls.
  • Full perimeter guard rails on all balconies for added safety.
  • Rigid framework, along with a concrete foundation, ensures the observation tower will withstand applicable wind loads and seismic conditions.

Quick Construction Minimizes Disruption

Sports video and viewing towers can be built in less time than traditionally constructed towers, minimizing disruption to the surrounding area and playing field. They are quickly and safely constructed with pre-engineered components like galvanized steel to protect the tower from the effects of weather exposure. With such durability, your tower is guaranteed years of reliable service.

Frequently Asked Questions

One of the key advantages of choosing Porta-King for your band or sport video tower is the elimination of on-site welding during the installation process. Porta-King’s towers and mezzanines are designed for completely bolted construction, ensuring a seamless and efficient installation that saves valuable time and money.

By eliminating the need for welding, Porta-King’s towers can be installed quickly and easily, without the need for specialized equipment or skilled welders. This bolt-together design not only streamlines the installation process but also allows for greater flexibility in terms of future modifications or expansions. With Porta-King, you can enjoy significant savings on installation costs while benefiting from a high-quality, durable structure that meets your specific needs.

Porta-King’s band and sport video towers are constructed with a galvanized finish to provide superior durability and longevity in outdoor applications. Unlike painted finishes, which are prone to rusting over time, galvanized steel offers unparalleled resistance to corrosion and weathering.

By choosing a galvanized finish, Porta-King ensures that their towers maintain their structural integrity and professional appearance for years to come, even in harsh outdoor conditions. This commitment to quality and durability is a testament to Porta-King’s dedication to providing their customers with reliable, long-lasting solutions that deliver exceptional value and performance.

To maintain structural integrity and minimize interference with field activities, Porta-King generally limits the tower footprint to 18′ x 18′. This size maximizes stair economics and allows for a stable, four-column design. While larger deck sizes are possible, they may require additional columns and the potential for a column to protrude through the deck, as determined by engineering requirements.

To create additional deck space without expanding the footprint, Porta-King utilizes strategically positioned balconies on the side(s) of the primary center support structure. This innovative approach ensures that band and sport video towers offer ample space for equipment and personnel while minimizing their impact on the field or surrounding area.

Porta-King’s band and sport video towers are designed with stairways wrapped around the outside of the structure to maximize the usable deck area at the top. By positioning the stairs on the exterior of the tower, the entire top deck remains unobstructed, providing ample space for equipment, personnel, and storage. This innovative design feature ensures that the stairs do not intrude into the valuable deck area, allowing for optimal functionality and efficiency. The external stairway also adds to the overall stability and aesthetic appeal of the tower, creating a cohesive and professional appearance that complements any venue.

Porta-King’s band and sport video towers are engineered to reach a maximum height of 52′, providing an optimal vantage point for capturing performances and sporting events. For applications that require even greater heights, Porta-King’s standard towers can be designed to reach up to 70′ tall. These impressive heights allow for clear, unobstructed views of the field or stage, ensuring that every moment is captured with precision and clarity. When selecting a band or sport video tower, it’s essential to consider the specific height requirements of your venue and choose a solution that offers the best possible perspective for your needs.
