Tait Towers and the Star-Shaped Stage for the Houston Rodeo

Advanced Fluid Systems was recently contracted by Tait Towers to provide hydraulic system solutions for the new Houston Livestock and Rodeo Stage.  Tait Towers is the world market leader in creating, designing and engineering equipment for the live event industry.

Tait Towers relied on Advanced Fluid Systems’ engineering team to design the hydraulic scheme required to actuate this state of the art stage.  Advanced Fluid Systems was responsible for the complete hydraulic installation, hydraulic circuit design, hydraulic power unit and integrated cylinder assembly, troubleshooting, and hydraulic component provision.  Stay tuned for more details.

“To create the stage, TAIT built a 48-foot in diameter rotating deck and surrounded it with the five star points. Each point extends 36 feet and are capable of lifting and lowering separately or together via an entertainment automation platform, TAIT Navigator. TAIT Navigator communicates location points to the stage so it can drive itself into position at the center of the NRG Stadium. “
