Stadium chairs

Every grandstand is unique

The word tribune (from the Latin tribunal and another word for grandstand) refers to a raised platform for accommodating spectators in a stadium or hall. The differences between the grandstands, which are to be equipped with seating, are enormous. Therefore, a "stadium chair set up" project has increased requirements and needs corresponding flexibility.

Grandstands can be modular. This is the case when a grandstand, for changing events or those with a limited duration, has to be set up and dismantled again. The opposite case is the permanent constructions, usually used in stadiums. The exterior conditions can vary greatly. The available space may be oval, circular or angular and the gradient, as well as the number of spectator rows can also vary. In addition, the area to be built on and the number of spectators who are to be comfortably seated on this area also differ greatly. If the grandstand is located outside, the chairs must be able to be used all-year round and must be weather-resistant.

The "stadium chair" project therefore requires huge flexibility, modular products and outstanding planning. Erlau makes it possible!
