stadium seating louisville, kyKnowing that the fans at your sporting event will be on the edge of their seat—literally—it is important to provide durable quality and yet comfortable seating for them to enjoy the game.

Indoor chair seating provides a level of comfort for fans that supports your audience and also enhances your space. Indoor arena chairs are designed with premium materials, durable construction, and rigorous quality control. These sturdy, fixed seating chairs are designed to meet stringent standards for audience safety, durability, and also provide easy maintenance.

Fixed to your indoor arena wall in banks, telescopic platforms can include stadium chairs that can be upholstered or constructed from polymer. These chairs are designed to meet any unique seating challenges of a small to mid-size entertainment facility. Telescopic platforms can also incorporate the following features:

  • custom and variable rise
  • tapered sections
  • extruded aluminum decking
  • folding platform chairs

By choosing indoor arena chairs for all or part of your sports facility, you offer patrons a private viewing experience that is complemented with separating arm rests, flip down seats, and an ergonomically designed single piece seat. They can be installed in a designated section to provide VIP seating for parents, boosters and faculty or along an entire sideline for the home crowd.

bleacher seating in louisville, ky

Retractable, or recessed bleachers, are one of the most traditional systems of seating for basketball arenas and school gymnasiums. This system utilizes a tiered seating structure and a pocket in the wall that houses the bleacher when closed. The bleacher is hidden away from sight, generally under a balcony or mezzanine when the seating area is needed for other purposes. Each platform conveniently stores under the one above it to create minimal storage area.

Only minimal clearance is required for the bleachers to fit comfortably under the balcony overhang. When bleachers are stacked, floor space is utilized to maximum capacity. This system is available with 24 rows. Upper and lower tracking guides and removable end rails can accommodate custom transition steps to the balcony when needed. Here are some additional advantages the recessed seating system can provide for your sports facility:

  • Optimum use of facility space
  • Savings on land and building cost
  • Increased revenue potential
  • Fast and resourceful seating arrangements
  • Comfort and optimum viewing for patrons

Recessed platforms are outfitted with upper and lower tracking guides, removable end rails, and can accommodate custom transition steps to the balcony when required.These systems can be customized to meet the ongoing and changing needs of your basketball facility while maximizing capacity. Automatic power options can also be added for easy operation.

Telescopic Bleachers: the Advantages of Mobile Seating

Posted by Matt Roberts

Oct 19, 2013 11:54:00 AM

telescopic bleachersThe practical design and flexibility of the telescopic bleacher system has been used by spectators and fans for more than 70 years. Telescopic bleachers are still a very popular choice in many arenas today.  Each telescopic bleacher project is custom made and adapted to the dimensions available in your indoor facility.

Mainly used in indoor facilities to increase seating capacity, the mobile telescopic seating product adds a series of bleacher modules that can be folded to occupy very little space when not being used.

The mobile bleacher system is one of the most flexible seating systems available to schools and sporting facilities and is commonly used to accommodate a variety of needs.

Mobile bleacher systems can be used in one part of the building and then transported and stored in a different part of the building. This style of seating can run up to 21" wide with seating capabilities of 14 rows at a 10 1/4 inch rise or 12 rows with an 11 1/2 inch rise. These independent, self-supporting units do not require anchorage to the wall or floor. Used commonly in gymnasiums, music rooms, cafeterias and class rooms, these bleachers provide easy manual operation.

A portable hydraulic dolly is required and generally provided to transport units to and from spectator and storage areas and a pair of hydraulic trucks are required to move the mobile units.

Back handles and back rails are required by code and for safety purposes. With a standard height of 8" the back panel provides a flat wall type surface to discourage access to the understructure of the bleachers. All of these features make the mobile telescopic bleacher a very flexible and independent choice in seating.

When your facility demands a quick transformation from a wide open space to a fully functioning spectator arena, consider the benefits of the mobile telescopic bleacher system.

Selecting Proper Bleacher Seating

Posted by Chris Toadvine

Hosting a sporting event is likbleacher sales in louisville, kye planning a party. You have to know how many people may come, if you are going to have enough seats for them all, and the most practical way to accommodate them all. Designing a facility and selecting your bleacher seating involves all of those decisions, but once the decision is made it is more permanent. Because your bleachers may last up to 30 years, there are some other important factors to take into consideration before making that final choice.

During its lifetime, bleachers will be used by thousands of fans and spectators, so it is critical to become familiar with the local and national safety-related guidelines and codes. Before the purchase, smart owners will also weigh the importance of capacity needs, the permanence of seating areas, and the type of audience that will be served. Target demographics should be highly evaluated when purchasing new seats.

If your school needs seating for occasional events and cannot leave rows of stadium seats in place permanently because of space restrictions, you may consider smaller bleachers and telescoping seats that can be wheeled out quickly and pushed back out of the way. Sporting clubs that cater to younger audiences may be able to get away with basic bleachers without wide aisles and seat backs.

Typical bleacher sectionsconsist of 2 to 15 rows with row lengths ranging from 7.5-30 feet for small popular models. Planks can be spliced together to form longer systems in most any length extending the seating capacity to 10-10,000 people. These "tiered" or "stepped" surfaces are available in a variety of configurations. Toadvine Enterprises offers a variety of seating selections to best meet the needs of your organization. Here are some of the options we provide:
  • Football and Baseball Bleachers
  • Basketball Bleachers
  • Soccer Bleachers
  • Portable Bleachers
  • Stadium Bleachers
  • Aluminum Bleachers
  • Gym Bleachers
  • Wooden Bleachers
  • High School Bleachers
  • Telescopic Bleachers
