difference between Bleachers and Grandstands?
By Jeff McDonald
There are 2 basic categories of row type outdoor aluminum spectator seating, these
are bleachers and grandstands, below we describe the differences between the two
1. Bleachers consist of an angle frame to which seat and foot
planking is attached. The entire unit must be placed on a solid level surface;
this can be cement, asphalt, or soil.
2. Grandstands: While they may look similar to bleachers they are not
the same. Grandstands have vertical pylons and require footings for each pylon.
Grandstands have the ability to adapt to your existing topography. So if your
land is not level, and cannot be made level, then you should investigate
grandstands for your project. If your land is level or can be made level then,
angle frame bleachers will offer you the best value.

2 Types of Angle Frame Bleachers to Choose From:
1. Welded Angle Frame Aluminum Bleachers
Aluminum or Galvanized steel frames are welded together, seat and floor
planks are attached via clip sets to the angle frames, additional bracing, end
caps and in some instances
chailink guardrails, and handrails can be attached. Welded angle frame
bleachers are more labor intensive to produce however end user assembly time is
reduce due to pre-fastened framework.
2. Bolted Angle Frame Aluminum Bleachers
Frames are pre drilled and units are assembled by bolting together
framework and aluminum planking to produce the finished bleacher. Ongoing
routine maintenance of tightening bolts may be required.
BuiltRiteBleachers.com sells only pre-welded angle frame aluminum
bleachers. We believe that welding provides a superior connection for
angle frame bleachers over bolt together units. Our customers experience
faster assembly times with no ongoing maintenance. The welded construction
