What is Retractable Seating?
Retractable Seating, sometimes known as “telescopic seating”, “bleacher seating” or “raked seating”, is a form of seating which can be folded away to the width of a single row when not in use. This makes it perfect for venues without the luxury of a lot of space, as it can be stored in a small portion of the room, or a separate room entirely. Flexibility does not mean compromising on comfort however, with Retractable Seating used for long lectures, film or all day events the user must remain comfortable throughout in-order to concentrate on their viewing material.
What are the advantages?
There are three main advantages to having retractable seating in your auditorium.
- Flexibility – Retractable Seating gives you the option of stowing it away when not in use, and can be pulled out for use with ease compared to static seating. This allows you much more flexibility in your chosen space, not just restricted to filling your valuable space with fixed seating.
- Space saving- Its retractable nature is a great space saving feature for multi-purpose or smaller venues. Ideal in education, sports halls or small theatres.
- Comfort- Despite its flexibility, Retractable Seating is perfectly comfortable even throughout long events.
What are the uses?
Retractable Seating can be used to great effect in school sports halls, where temporary seating can be necessary for matches or school assemblies, in fact it’s great for any kind of temporary event such as a show, talk or lecture. This type of seating is also very effective when the space is normally needed for other uses, and seating is only required on an infrequent or ad-hoc basis. Retractable Seating can also be employed when additional seating is needed for especially large events, due to its flexibility.
