    This fall we completed an arena bleacher project in tandem with our partners at Omni Sport in Alberta. The project was to involve the removal and disposal of the original wooden bleachers inside the hockey rink, restore the concrete slab base and then supply and install new arena bleachers and rink boards for the arena.

    Given our years of experience taking arena bleachers to the next level through seating upgrades, Ominsport turned to us to design and manufacture the bleacher seating needed to suit their clients’ needs.

    The bleacher system was all based upon the foundation of a galvanized steel angle frame under structure, combined with an elevated front deck with custom stair case access for patrons at either end.

    To help keep maintenance low, the arena bleachers were designed with a fully closed aluminum deck design. This unique design eliminates any garbage or debris from falling beneath the structure and allows operations staff an easy to clean bleacher seating system. Our design team also was able to include notched out areas around the penalty boxes, allowing for a virtually seamless fit to the existing design of the arena.

    A custom rise and run on the bleachers was also manufactured which included an extended last row, allowing the arena to increase its capacity by allowing for standing room viewing above the bleacher seating.

    As you will see in the images, Bleachair Seatpans were installed for an added level of comfort for the spectators, providing another level of warmth than traditional bench style seating in cold arenas. Theses seatpans are an economical choice for many arenas today, are easily installed and offer an easy to clean surface for maintenance staff.
