What is retractable bench seating?

These seating systems combine retractable platforms with benches to provide an excellent communal seating solution for a wide variety of facilities. As the name suggests, the system can be retracted quickly in order to give venues extra space, making it an excellent solution for multi-purpose spaces. They can also be referred to as bleacher or telescopic systems, and come in two designs: upholstered or sports benches.
