Timber Bleacher

The term Timber Bleacher seating was defined way back in the late 1800’s. Wooden outdoor viewing benches were generally left uncovered and as a result became “bleached” by the sun, thus the term “bleachers”. Used today as a common term for telescopic platforms or tribunes that would generally house timber bench seating.

Far from the days when only southern pine benches were an option we now provide a wonderful array of choices to suit. Today’s modern materials, which include high-pressure laminate for the benches, give a robust and visually appealing finish.

When not used as a seating unit, a Timber Bleacher is folded away and used as a rebound surface. In this case the fascia panels on the bench seat are then transformed in use to repel balls from any errant shots.

Customers often enhance the comfort and look of the bleacher by adding fold down back rests to each seat place. This small adjustment allows many more uses of the space and opens different revenue streams.

By also adding seat numbers, row letters and demarcation lines to the benches ticketing events is also much easier. When bench seating is used on your retractable platform speed of operation is maximised. When self-storing rails are added setting up the unit is then a single person operation.
