Selecting the Right Size Bleacher
Selecting the Right Size Bleacher
  ​Picking the right bleachers is not difficult.  Consider these steps when choosing bleachers.
 
1. Determine the number of seats (spectators) that will need to be provided.
2.  Determine the bleacher footprint available.
3.  Match the bleacher footprint with the seating capacity of the bleacher you are considering.
4.  Determine if a “Standard” bleacher will meet your needs or if the bleacher will need to be “Custom” designed based on the required seating and the available footprint.
​ Know who you are buying bleachers from. We provide free planning and design, and provide installation services. Bleacher sales firms can sell bleachers that may or may not be compliant with the most current
building code(s).  It is up to the owner (person, business, or governmental unit) to provide bleachers that are compliant with the code. ​Our bleachers are provided by JW Industries, located in Green Bay, WI.  They offer a twelve year warranty on all standard bleachers.  All JWI standard bleachers are International Building Code (IBC) and ICC 300 compliant.  Below are specifications for their standard Non-Elevated Bleachers with and without wheelchair spaces.
