louisville, ky indoor bleacher seatingThe match between the Cards and the Cats in the Sweet 16 wasn't the only heated event to hit the hard wood this basketball season. At Toadvine Enterprises we understand that stiff competition can leave fans on the edge of their seats, literally, and when their enthusiasm explodes you need an arena that's equipped for those crazed fans and rowdy events. Whether your indoor arena will need to accommodate competing rivalries or more sophisticated assemblies, Toadvine has a variety of seating options to fit your needs. Here are some of the various seating options you can choose when designing or updating your facility.
  • Telescopic Systems. This is our most popular type of seating and is designed to offer flexibility to fit a variety of facility configurations. The forward folding bleacher systems open in the forward direction and utilize either free-standing floor attachments or wall attachments. The reverse fold telescopic system is helpful when space behind the bleachers is desired for other activities when the bleachers are not in use. The recessed system of seating requires a minimal clearance to fit conveniently under a balcony overhang and maximizes usable floor space as bleachers are stacked. Mobile systems, or single sections of bleachers, can be used in one part of the building and stored in a completely different area. Free-Standing Floor-Attached Systems are utilized where bleachers are required to be located away from walls or when wall construction prohibits attachment.
  • Sculptured Seat Modules. These one-piece, injection-molded, high strength polyethylene seats are made with molded-in solid color which will not fade or wear out. These seats are easy to maintain and will not wear out. They will not stain or splinter.
  • Contoured Seat Modules. For added comfort, appeal, and endurance, this seating is hard to beat. These waterfall designed seats are highly functional and visually appealing. The angled seats allow for 30% more leg room than competitive products which allows fans and spectators to move legs more freely.
  • ComfoBack. For a luxurious seating option, the ComfoBack seating is ergonomically designed for maximum spectator comfort. The backrest on this seat provides superb comfort and convenience for facility personnel with a fast and effort-free set-up.
  • Classic Wood. For the more traditional type arena, this sleek wooden bench seating, constructed of southern yellow pine, is the standard in the telescopic industry. These wood seats and front riser boards are finished in classic style to enhance the appearance of your arena.
  • Platform Chairs. The platform chair is a great way to meet the needs of a diverse, multi-purpose facility. The platform and PC chair combination is perfect for any auditorium, sports arena, or assembly hall where you might need more comfortable seating with more space between rows.
  • Stadium Chairs. For maximum performance and durability, the stadium chair is designed for ergonomic comfort and outstanding appearance and is manufactured using world-class technology. To enhance your indoor arena and add a touch of style and color, the stadium chair is the perfect choice.

Whatever crowd you need to serve, Toadvine has all the seating options that your indoor arena could need and will leave fans and spectators on the edge of their seat when you design your facility with versatile, quality seating from Toadvine.

Sports Facility Design, Eyes For Detail

Posted by Matt Roberts

Kentucky athletic equipment We provide nearly every product you could possibly need for your sports complex or facility. More than that, we design sports facilities from simple to complex. We provide our clients with more than seating design and basketball and football goal placement. We walk with you through the design-build process to the installation and completion of the project.

Anyone can design a rectangular building, throw bleachers against the wall, and install a few hoops with a scoreboard attached to the wall. It requires a company like Toadvine Enterprises to consider the detail of how every fixture and piece of equipment should complement the function of the whole facility. We have been in sports facilities where 20 percent of the spectators had their view of the scoreboard or the athletes blocked by the scoreboard or some other facility component. Subtle changes in design can make the user experience improve dramatically. Considering how spectators enter and exit a facility, or how they access concessions and restrooms can make a huge impact on the performance of your facility. Most people do not expect their facility to serve them well, beyond  it being a place to a house a sporting event. What if the experience of the event was drastically improved? What would that mean to your program?

Knowing what works and what doesn't is an art and a science. We have every detail in mind when we design a sports facility. We have to consider the spectator experience and at the same time the environment we are creating for the athlete. Everything has to work together to exceed expectations.  That is the main reason we have partnered with the companies we have. They share our commitment to excellence and innovation. Companies like Nevco, Porter, Gill Athletics, Interkal, Dant Clayton, Seating Concepts, and List Industries. We have to be selective because we are only as good as the product and service we can offer our clients. Choose more for your facility design and improvements, choose Toadvine Enterprises.

Stadium seating from Dant ClaytonIf your school is thinking about installing new stadium seating for its outdoor facility, what are some of the factors that determine the quality and overall type of seating to purchase?

Price will definitely come into play in your decision making process, but what about quality, reliability, structural support, and all of the other details that go into building and installing outdoor stadium seats?

Dant Clayton has put together a comparison guide that lays out their product vs. other products on the market. The purpose of the comparison is to present the two basic systems that are available for permanent grandstand projects. The two aluminum decking systems in this guide are very, very different in design and performance.

You can download the guide for free on our website and use it as a reference when you start to consider new seating for your facility.

Contact Toadvine Enterprises with questions regarding your next seating project.

Basketball season is right around the corner

Can you believe it’s almost time for basketball season? While most of the college programs had their midnight madness a few Fridays ago, high school teams are practicing hard and gearing up for the season.

Speaking of basketball season, how’s your gym looking? Basketball season is the time when gymnasiums—and bleachers especially—see the most traffic, and wear and tear. Fans pack the stands for both boys’ and girls’ games each week, so it’s crucial that your bleachers are in good condition.

If you think it’s time to get your bleachers inspected before the season officially begins, check out Vine & Branch, our maintenance division. Our maintenance and safety inspection program handles all of your indoor and outdoor seating and equipment inspections. Vine & Branch is also fully staffed with manufacturer-certified service technicians to ensure the safety of your seating. You can fill out the maintenance form on our website to learn more and get the process started.desales high school

Need new bleachers entirely? We can help with that too. We just completed a bleacher installation at DeSales High School in Louisville, KY. This was a very large job, with three separate banks of bleachers. Whether your project is large like this or smaller, contact us for a quote or to get the process started.
