    Whether you operate or are part of an indoor or outdoor athletic facility, the issue of useable space is often a topic of discussion. Today, we expect more from our sports fields and facilities optimizing both available space and cost effectiveness.

    The majority of smaller bleachers are designed using the standard angle frame structure, ensuring a solid foundation for your spectator seating. While this design does not pose any problems whatsoever and is widely used across North America, more outdoor facilities are switching to the permanent I-Beam structure for use with their grandstand seating.

    Sport Systems’ permanent beam design is your optimal choice for optimizing the amount of usable space beneath the bleacher structure. Because of the I-Beam grandstands construction, the area underneath the seating platform is now available for use, for a variety of applications. Some facilities use the space for storage and the parking of service and emergency vehicles, while others build out revenue generating concession stands or spectator and staff washrooms.

    Let our professional and knowledgeable staff guide you every step of the way, from conception to design to installation, we are with you from start to finish. Our design team will ensure your project is code compliant by taking care of all of the bleacher design fundamentals like load distribution, sight lines, seat optimization, safety precautions and other important aspects of your bleacher design.
