A lot of multi-use sports complexes need their bleachers to be portable. This is where tip and roll bleachers come in handy. Wheels on the back side of each section make it possible to roll the seats to your desired location. Then you can easily tip them down into place. One person can set up and tear down your seating for evening games or weekend tournaments at your facility. Tip and Roll or portable bleachers can also be used outside to add more seating to your stadium. Many K-12 athletic fields and facilities are used for multiple reasons.

Facility owners and managers understand the importance of a properly maintained bleacher system. If the bleacher is maintained and inspected a minimum of two times per year by a qualified bleacher repair company, there is a good probability that the bleachers will perform when you them to most.
