What is a retractable design?

A retractable design for seating systems is built to be folded away when it’s not in use. As the name suggests, the seating structure retracts to give venues extra space, making it an excellent solution for multi-purpose facilities. Retractable Structures are also known as bleacher or telescopic systems.

Why go retractable?

The design of the system has several benefits. It allows for maximum seating capacity and offers an economic solution to seating projects. The structure also provides significant space when not in use. This means that auditoriums, theatres, or any other venue don’t have to commit to one purpose or design. All of this is possible whilst still supplying seating that’s comfortable and durable for audience members!

Why Choose SIS?

Retractable seating designs by SIS are tailor-made to meet the unique demands of any facility. While the design of the seating system follows time-proven standards, the final solution is always manufactured to suit each specific project.
