Angle Frame Bleachers
Angle frame seating structures provide a great solution for level sites. These bleachers are attached to either a concrete foundation or installed with earth anchors. Our Angle Frame bleachers are customizable to meet most capacity needs and can be either aluminum frames or galvanized steel frames. They are most used in high school sports facilities like football stadiums, tennis courts, and baseball stadiums.
The angle frame bleachers get their name from the angles used in their structure. They are strong and light and are primarily used in smaller sets of bleachers without the need for concession stands or other revenue-generating construction beneath the bleachers. National Recreation Systems specializes in Angle Frame Bleachers and is one of the leading bleacher manufacturing companies in North America.
