Basic Bleacher Terms
When buying bleachers, it helps to understand some of the more common phrases. Below is a list of commonly used terms and phrases used in bleacher specifications.
"Single Foot Plank" or "Single Foot Board" is a term used to describe (1) 2"x10" mill finish aluminum foot plank per row to rest your feet on when seated. You'll normally find single foot planks on smaller sets of bleachers, or or Tip 'N Roll Series. Consumers choose a single foot board to either save weight on transportable bleachers, save money, or space space.
"Double Foot Plank" or "Double Foot Board" is a term used to describe (2) 2"x10" mill finish aluminum foot planks per row to rest your feet on when seated. You'll find double foot boards on larger sets of bleachers and expecially on permanant grandstands. Consumers choose double foot boards to make their bleachers more comfortable, safer, and easier to walk on.
"Riser Plank" is a term used to describe a "mill finish" aluminum plank that is mounted vertically under the seat and behind your feet to close the opening to meet building and safety codes.
"Rise" The vertical measure from the top of a bleacher seat to the top of the bleacher seat in the next row.
