Recently Florida Bleacher Rentals was contacted by an event team in Orlando, Florida wanting to install temporary bleacher seating for an event located inside an indoor pool facility. The project definitely had unique challenges as we had to carry all the aluminum bleacher materials into the pool facility and make sure the bleachers were positioned with enough clearance to keep non-competitors out of the pool. The aluminum rental bleachers used for this event were 4 bleacher sections each 21’ long 10 row bleachers, connected together to make (1) longer section of 84’ long 10 row bleachers seating 416 people.
The Sarasota – Bradenton Florida area recently put on a Modern Pentathlon Event at the Polo Grounds. The portable rental bleachers selected to be used for the event were an 84’ long 10 row section seating 500 people @ 18” per seat. The covered aluminum bleachers were installed under a tent to provide both shade and protection from the weather, as this was an outdoor bleacher event. The installation area was flat hard grass and the truck and trailer could be pulled up behind the installation area making this a perfect project all the way around.
The Sarasota Open has been using RBI for 5 years at this event and each year the seating layout changes to keep things fresh and add new elements to the events. The stage was added this season in between two sets of bleachers which was a fun twist on the games.
Rental Bleachers can be utilized for festivals of all types. Recently RBI provided aluminum bleachers for an American Indian Heritage Festival. The bleachers were used around a location for viewing of both dance demonstrations as well as cultural displays during the course of the festival. The client “dressed” the bleachers using different materials to make them go a little better with the theme of the event. RBI has provided for numerous American Indian Festivals over the last few years including our latest in Brooksville Florida as well as Macon Georgia. It is always nice to be a part of an event that celebrates culture and allows people to learn about things first hand.
Each bleacher rental project will have its own challenges for installation and removal of the rental bleachers. In some cases we simply can not get the truck and trailer close during the bleacher installation and the materials must be carried. This is when having portable aluminum angle frame bleacher units really is better than steel frame bleachers and wooden bleacher seats. A few different types of challenges are shown below:
Rental Bleacher Safety Information:
Renting bleachers for an event is a big responsibility. Every person who comes to your event is trusting you to provide them with quality seating that is not just comfortable but safe for them and their family. RBI has recently quoted a few projects where the competition has quoted the use of bleachers that do not have STANDARD safety features such as safety fence around the back and sides of the units. Most of our clients are experts in their field but not necessarily experts in the bleacher business so we have listed some items below to look for when comparing quotes between companies and the types of bleachers they are providing.
