About Us

53 degrees is a design and build company specialising in the design and build of backdrops, sets for TV, exhibition stands, shop fitting and the supply and installation of stages and rostrums (ros).

Within these categories we have a broad range of experience. Whether it is a conference backdrops / seminar backdrop, AGM backdrops or other corporate backdrops, themed events and event backdrops or a simple meeting backdrop we have extensive experience and can assist with the delivery of a memorable and professional backdrop.

Although most of the TV sets we build are for RTE we also have a long list of production companies that we work with such as Tyrone Productions, Green Inc and Sideline TV We have built sets for the RTE Late Late Show, Primetime, The RTE News, Podge and Rodge, The Lotto, Winning Streak and The Den.

To complement the Television Set and backdrops side of our business we also supply and install stages and rostrums for events or into studio. We have stages both for sale and to hire in a variety of sizes and with appropriate accessories. No stage is finished without a lectern. At 53 degrees we have a range of lecterns and podiums for hire or for purchase. Finally, TV and events backdrop often require specialist materials, such as laconite, Rosco screen or sharks tooth gauze; please feel free to contact us if you need any of these materials or if you have an enquiry regarding TV or Set Props

Exhibitions and Displays: In recent years the demand from our customers for exhibition stands, displays, pull up banners, pop up stands and modular stands has been very strong. If you have a requirement for an exhibition stand or display, whether it is for a business to business or business to consumer meeting or event please contact us and we will be happy give you assistance with choosing the most appropriate display for your needs and budget. We also offer a furniture hire service; please visit our furniture page for more details.

A key component of our display portfolio is the design and manufacture of Point of Sale or Point of Purchase and shopfitting. For some of our clients, selling into multiple channels requires them to develop suitable point of sale. To this end we work very closely with our clients to ascertain their needs and that of the retailer who will be taking the point of sale unit.

Some of our clients require more than point of sale units in fact they require a shop fit out. Most of the shopfitting that we undertake is bespoke but we also offer modular or ‘off the shelf’ solutions.

53 degrees design also offer a range of display solutions, such as standard lightboxes (A4 – A0), snap frames, curved light boxes, queue systems, brochure holders and flag poles. Please visit or ‘Misc. Display’ for more details.

Finally, we are regularly asked to undertake slightly unusual events or launches. Some, like the Rose of Tralee are glamorous and some such as the National Ploughing Championships can seem less so. If you have a display or branding requirement at an event that is slightly unusual please feel free to contact us as we may already be working at that event but if not we will assist you as best we can.
